Why haven't my prayers been answered?

God wants us to grow and develop in the tough times because if we want to live out our highest potential we need to be able to move through the tough times. We may not like to be in that situation but if you want to get ahead, you need to position yourself properly to be prepared for what is to come.

I know that I have been uncomfortable in many different situations in my life but I realized that if I wanted to get ahead, I needed to face those situations and move through them---God uses others to teach us our life lessons. God is more interested in changing us and less about getting us through those uncomfortable situations. When you are striving to achieve and receive the answers that you are seeking you must remain strong and ready for battle. This is not an exercise for the weak of heart. To achieve your greatness is difficult at best; mediocrity is easy.

Are you prepared for where God is taking you? Learn to be kind to those who make you feel less than. Be thankful to those who have a poor and weak attitude or work ethic. They are placed in front of you simply so you would learn to see the bigger picture and grow from the lessons learned.

Like the great sculpture masterpiece - The David by Michelangelo, you are being prepared, chiseled and fine-tuned in so many ways to help bring out the best and finest inside of you. God is grooming you for your finest hour. Begin to look at your challenges as opportunities and your struggles and pains as a cleansing and purification.

There is a plan for your life and along with that plan comes expansion preparation and flexibility. The obstacles that are being placed in front of you are simply stepping stones to help you get to the other side where your joy and success lie. Learn to embrace where you are right now---It is not about accepting mediocrity or indifference; it is more about getting you ready for your greatness, your masterpiece. Adversity often brings out the best in people. Recognize that quality in yourself and choose to step into a new way of functioning and experiencing. This is the time to put your thinking cap on and get creative as you awaken the talents that are inside of you.

One of our lessons is in trusting the process of life. Trusting that it will unfold for you at the right time. Are you prepared to pass the test? If not then go back and review your life and your events as you examine what is needed to make it happen. It is not about your timetable---but more about whether you are absolutely prepared to receive. When my prayers weren't answered the way I wanted, I got frustrated and angry but after a long time of meditation and communing with God, my Higher Source, I was shown that I was not prepared to dwell in the higher vibration energy where greatness resides. My ego mind said I was ready but in truth I was only fooling myself.

Is your energy high enough to attract the right people and the right situations into your magnetic field of power? If you want your prayers answered for your highest and best then you are the one who will need to change your vibration and increase your energy in order to become a receptor of like energy. Like attracts like kind. The Law of Attraction certainly works with people and relationships and it also works with our goals. Like a radio signal, if the reception is poor and weak, there may be no or very little reception. The same holds true of the human energy field. If our energy level is poor and weak, we are unable to attract what we are seeking. It is, therefore, imperative that we, you and I, raise our vibration, our frequency so that we can attract a matching signal.

If you are seeking to receive an answer to your prayers, your hopes and dreams, then it is necessary for you to vibrate at a level that will attract like people and/or opportunities that are vibrating at the same energy level. These are the necessary ingredients that you must encompass if you want to have a wonderful and uplifting experience. God can only do so much; it is up to each one of us to bring to the table all the right ingredients, the right energy if we want to receive our best. So if you are not receiving what you are seeking? remember: "We are all vibrating machines and we will attract only those things that match our vibration."
