This was the message of God upon reading today July 24 at 3am this morning:
JEREMIAH 5:20-25 :21 Hear this, you foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear:  22 Should you not fear me?" declares the LORD. "Should you not tremble in my presence? I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it.23 But these people have stubborn and rebellious hearts; they have turned aside and gone away. 24 They do not say to themselves, 'Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.25Your wrongdoings have kept these away; your sins have deprived you of good.
We all pray for our request to God because we believe that there is God who grants our request through prayers. However, most of our prayers are not answered. Let's stop for awhile and think what we have done why our request were not granted. According to the words of God from Jeremiah 5:20-25,  we have created a barrier that made our prayers not granted.
I will give an example. I have a friend who for  almost 10 years of their marriage have not been granted  a child. They actually have saved  money for their plan (according to their doctor)so she can bear a child. One day, one of her closest friend(closer like relatives when they treat one another)was
borrowing money from her so she(her close friend) can have the chance to go abroad. Because that was a one time opportunity for her. However, my friend told her other that she don't have money to 
lend her. Actually, gusto ko sabihin sa kanya nun na ipahiram na niya. I'm not yet Christian during that time, but I can feel negative outcome to that effect.Kasi nararamdaman ko na yun ang magiging dahilan ng di pagtupad ng kanyang pangarap na magkaanak. She's now 44 at wala pa ding anak, but you know I didn't have the courage to tell her about it. Sabi nga sa Proverbs 16 : 1-3 1 To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue2 All a man's ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD. 3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed) Kaya magplano man tayo ng magplano, ngunit Dios ang nagpapatupad nito.
I have another example. On my case, syempre my hinihiling din ako sa Dios,which I fervently hope and waiting. I can feel that He will grant it to me. However, bakit nadedelay?Sometimes, I have an attitude of selfishness. Ex. My sister's daughter is living with us together with her common law husband (kasi hindi sila kasal) and of course, the 4 kids. Whenever he would eat and would not
 did not give money for food, I'm pissed of...kasi hindi sya nagbibigay kahit lumabas siya ng biyahe. Nagsusugal kasi siya at mga bata pinaasa sa min ng kapatid ko who is his mother in law.  Sometimes we cannot overcome evilness in us. Because of my reasons about him which are worldly reasons. Of course, God does not want us to have that kind of attitude. We should always imbued love in the midst of hatred

Napagisipan nyo na ba during past or present kung may hiningi kayo and were not granted. Have you realized the barriers?
