Prayer Is A Process
Most people assume that if the Lord had answered our prayer, then there would be instantaneous results. They suppose that there is no such thing as time or distance in the spiritual realm. But once God moves in the spiritual realm, there is a process that has to occur before we see it manifest in the physical world. Failure to understand this will cause our faith to fail because we think God hasn't done anything. In this teaching, Andrew gives scriptural examples of where God moved instantly, but it took a period of time for what He had commanded to come to pass in the physical.
