My pastor said that, “God answers prayers incrementally.” We expect God to do the big things and forget about the baby steps. We want a house, but our credit is jacked. We want a car, but our license is suspended. We want long life, but have poor eating habits. We have to do the work. We have to be good stewards. We have to be responsible with the talents and blessings he’s already given us. God answers our prayers when we are ready for the responsibility that comes with them, not just because we asked. The key to answered prayers is enduring the process. Show thyself approved. Be in position to be blessed.

We don't always know the answer. We don't always see the resolution because the problem appears to be bigger. We have a natural tendency to expect the worst and hope for the best. We are natural negative. We are jaded by our circumstances, but we can do better. We can resolve to do better, to think better, and to be better. We can resolve to see the positive. We can resolve to trust that things will work out for the best.
