“And my God will meet all of your wants in line with his superb riches in Christ Jesus” Philippians four:19
“I’ve had it with God’s guarantees,” a buddy stated. “I’ve requested Him for assist quite a few instances and all He ever does is promise. I need Him to do one thing.”
“Heal my physique. Provide my monetary wants. Restore a damaged relationship“.
Are you able to relate? I positive can. Usually I’ve requested God to satisfy a selected want. I need Him to do it quickly and in a really sensible means. Generally, He does. However typically He doesn’t.
An expensive buddy helped me get some perspective on this.
“As a substitute of frequently asking God to present you one thing, ask Him to make you into one thing. As an illustration, pray, ‘Make me extra like Jesus. Make me extra compassionate. Make me a lady of religion’.”
Once we pray “Give me” we’re treating God as if He exists to serve us. Whereas, once we pray “make me” we acknowledge that He’s our God and we need to serve him.
Above all else, God is considering our everlasting welfare. For that motive, He’s extra considering our character than in our consolation. To adapt us to Christ-like-ness takes time. It additionally takes adversity. The solutions to “give me” are temporal, whereas the solutions to “make me” are everlasting.
Father, thanks that you just love me sufficient to not give me all the things I ask for. Make me into a lady of religion. I need to be extra like Jesus. Amen.
