Some time ago, a young lady narrated how disappointed she was in God for not answering her prayer. According to her, she had prayed for her sister to receive healing and did everything she knew to do, yet her sister died. She believed she had faith, but couldn't understand why she didn't get the results she expected. 

Faith always works; if it didn't work, then it wasn't faith. God is always disposed to answer our prayers; the problem is always on the receiving end. This dear lady said she did everything she "knew to do", yet her sister died. Notice that she didn't say she did everything she was supposed to do, according to the Word of God. That's different from doing all that you know to do, because all you know may not be enough. 

A lot of people just don't know what to do when trouble strikes and because they lack the right knowledge, life whips them. That's why we teach, so people can know more of the Word of God. With adequate knowledge of God's Word, when the day of crisis comes, they'll know what to do. This lady was limited by the death of her sister and she became disappointed at God; she thought God failed her, but that couldn't be true. God never fails! Death isn't the end. 

Remember the story of Lazarus in John 11:1-45; the Lord Jesus was unruffled when He arrived four days after Lazarus had been buried! Nothing was too late or impossible for Him! Jesus merely stood at the entrance of the cave and called him by name: "Lazarus come forth!" and he came back alive. Faith never gives up! 

When you didn't get the results you wanted, it wasn't God who disappointed you; rather, He was waiting for you to do something with the faith He gave you. He told us to cast out devils, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and raise the dead. 

Faith never ends with disappointment. However, if faith is weak or small, then it'll take a longer time to work and for that reason, many give up before the result they desire shows up. The Bible says, that when the edge of a machete is blunt, you must apply more force (Ecclesiastes 10:10). Get more of the Word into you and sharpen your faith, so you won't be unprepared in the day of trouble. It's up to you to effect changes in your world and create your victorious and triumphant life by acting on the Word. Never give up on your faith, no matter the circumstances.
