Did you ever roll your eyes or make a face behind your parents back? Did you ever go off and pout because you didn’t get your way? When we were young we would ask for things and sometimes those requests were granted and sometimes they were not. If you have children you do the same thing. If we gave our children everything they wanted, would they appreciate it?
As children of God it is the same. We make our requests to God and sometimes we get them and sometimes we don’t. How do react to God when he says, “No”. Do we feel like life is unfair and we don’t understand. Just remember next time you tell your children,” I love you and it is for your own good!” Know that is how God feels when He makes decisions in our life because He wants what is best for us!
“And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God.”
