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
Do you say yes to everything your children ask for? I hope not.
When you ask God for something, He may say no, and you may think that God is so unfair. But did you ever consider that God has something better for you?
Jesus taught us to pray, “Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven . . .” (Matthew 6:9–11). Before offering a word of personal petition, we should first pray, “Your will be done.”
We also read in Philippians 4:6–7, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
What does God promise that He will do if we pray this way? He promises to bring us peace. And “His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Proverbs 15:15 says, “He who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.” The Bible promises a cheerful heart to the follower of Christ.
