Do you think we are just supposed to received everything we want or need without asking? without faith?
Isaiah 30:18 NLT
What if we allow ourselves to be consumed by worry and anxious thoughts? Can we expect our prayers of “faith” to be heard? Prov. 15:15
Or would praying for a new job, car, house, etc. be just lip service to God if we continue believing the worst will happen anyways? 1 Peter 3:10
God is a God of love and compassion. Yes, He knows our hearts but even HE hates when we are two-faced…. Why do we even bother coming to him with troubles if we don’t believe he wants to bless us anyways?
Picture a daughter coming to her father asking for $20 for gas because she’s almost out and needs to get to school. She KNOWS he’ll give it to her. All she has to do is ask. He wants all things good for his child so he gladly goes out of his way to get her whatever she needs even if he doesn’t have $20 on him, he might follow her to the gas station and fill her tank and check all the fluids, tire pressure, etc. How much more do you think your heavenly father loves you?!
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20
