(PART 1)

Two words God uses to answer prayer are "never" and "always." God says we must never be afraid because He is with us. And because He is with us, we must always stand firm in our faith.

READ: Josh. 1:9; Ps. 35:1-3; Is. 7:9; 2 Tim. 1:7; Heb. 10:35-39; Heb. 11:6.
HEART ISSUE: Have you ever been so afraid that you lost faith in God's power to deliver you in a particular situation?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, increase my faith. Help me to stand firm and trust You whenever I feel afraid. Amen.

(PART 2)

Sometimes God answers prayer with "at certain times" or "not now." We can't follow a formula; we must learn to wait on God's timing and be led by the Holy Spirit day by day.

READ: Ex. 14:13-14; Ex. 14:15; Josh. 6:2-5; Matt. 4:1; Acts 16:6-10; Rom. 8:14.
HEART ISSUE: Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you on a daily basis?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to be sensitive to His leading day by day. Amen.
