Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! It will be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that very hour. (Matthew 8:13 NIV84)
It's easy to get discouraged when you are praying for someone and they just aren't getting better. But you have to persevere and wait it out with the same faith you started with. The world is in Gods timing. Not ours. Even with Jesus, He would knew the servant would be healed, and He kept faith even tho it didn't happen immediately. It still took an hour. Now, I'm not saying God will answer every prayer even if you have great faith all the way thru, it has to be His will as well. Sometimes it gets tiring what with Gods will and everything. But just remember- Gods will and ways are perfect. EVERYTHING He does is out if love. Also, God isn't moody, it may seem that way when you read the story about the Israelites, but they got what was Coming to them. It was just a Dad spanking His children out of love because He had their best interests in mind. He couldn't stand seeing them spin their lives out of control anymore. So He stopped them.
