You had a need. It was a legitimate need. You prayed about it. You had Bible verses backing up your legitimate need. You had promises you claimed. You did everything you were supposed to. You didn’t have any unconfessed sin or anything. But God didn’t answer your prayer request. Until one day He answers it – but not in the way you were expecting, much less the time you were expecting. And in the process, you are chastised for not trusting God. Disappointment and a scolding. How do you respond?
Zacharias responded by praising God!
And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.Luke 1:64
