Sometimes we ask God to do something, and we believe he can; but in the back of our mind there’s a lingering question. He can, but will he? Why do we hear this question? Is it because we are not sure we really want what we are asking for? We don’t deserve what we are asking for? Or Will what we are asking for really be what we need?
James 4:2-3 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Well guess what God knows the answer to all three questions. We should make sure our motives are right when we ask; make sure it will bless more than just you.
Philippians 2:3-5 (King James Version) 3Let nothing be done through strife or v ainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
If we really trust him as the greatest parent ever, then don’t be afraid to say if it be thy perfect will. Then trust the outcome.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Hope : The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best; to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence. to believe, desire, or trust : to feel that something desired may happen.
Disappointment shouldn’t kill your dream
And failure shouldn’t kill your hope
Things are not always as they seem
So don’t be afraid of hearing nope
Every no is a stepping stone that leads you to that door
That opens to all the wonderful things, you’ve been looking for
Every door that doesn’t open should lead you to the one that will
And when you finally get your wishes
How great you’re really gonna feel
Psalm 71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. Psalm 119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Romans 8:24-26 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. 26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
