You are going to have to come to terms with the partial nature of this life. Have you come to terms yet with the partial?
 
Are you able to hold on to your faith when only some prayers are answered?
 
It takes genuine maturity.
 
Most people don’t even try to learn the ways of the kingdom; they just go about their days with a practical agnosticism, hoping things work out, tossing up prayers like they hope to score on a Jesus lottery ticket. They have little to show for it. Others discover the possibility of breakthrough for sons and daughters, allies of God; they begin to experience breathtaking results. Then their Eden-heart gets confused about what it means to be victorious.
 
We can always be victorious—it just depends on what you mean by victorious. Or better, it depends on what God means by victorious.
