3 Types of Answers to our Prayers

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:6, NKJV
At first I thought this list, being very short, was exhaustive. I thought there are really only 2 answers: ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. But then the Holy Spirit reminded me that it takes faith, a surrendered heart and daily transformed life and mind to understand that unanswered prayer translates to #2 and #3. Because:

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55:8-9, NKJV)

Which brought me back to the process of finding his ways:
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6, NKJV)
