When God does not answer our prayers, does that mean, we have prayed against God's will? Or that we have prayed without faith or authority?
Faith matters most when when we go through hard times. When we experience dryness and discouragement. When we actually cannot see “the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”.
If we want to live as children of God, we need to learn to love our enemies and be kind to the unthankful. Because this is what our Father in Heaven does - all the time.
Forgetting the past and forgiving ourselves is essential if we want to step into God's purpose for our life. If we don't forgive ourselves, we will not be able to move forward.
