Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously gave us all things.
Since childhood, I can tell you with pride, I never get what I wanted. But now I realized that had God given me all that I asked, where will I be? What will I be doing by now? Will I be happy? Will I be satisfied? The answer is I didn’t think so.
My heart is full of gratitude toward God for not giving me all that I asked. He didn’t give me all that I want instead He gave me all that I need. Yes, if He didn’t even spare His Son but gave up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things? The truth is God is ready to give us all we ask but He didn’t give us sometimes because the thing we want or ask from Him will do us no good. He actually filters everything we ask for and gave us only those things which will build us, not those which will harm us.
With our human mind, we like what we see in our eyes, but we cannot see what harm can that bring to us. We only see up to what the vision of our eyes can see, but the truth is God sees beyond. And He sees what can be the outcome of, what we keep on asking. He is our Father so He won’t give us things which we keep on asking but which will only destroy us, as we are His children, He loves us more than our earthly fathers do.
Dear, just take a few moments and reflect on it, what will happen had God given you all that you asked? Thank God with me for not giving all that you asked but all that is building you up or is bringing you closer to Him.
