GOD LIKES TO SHOW HIS GRACE BY ANSWERING PRAYER
With every answer, God shows he is a good, good Father
... even when the answer is NO or NOT YET!
Q: Does a loving parent give a child everything they ask for? No!
Many good reasons: Protection, Correction. Direction not spoil
God, you didn’t answer me!” “Yes I did! My answer was no!”
Always 4 possible answers: Yes, No, Wait, & Are you kidding!
JER. 33:3 “Call to me and I will answer you. I will show you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.” (Mes)
Sometimes the answer is a bigger perspective. I now see...
MT.7:11 “If you, being imperfect and sinful parents know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him?” (NLT)
JAM.4:2 “You do not have, because you do not ask God.” (NIV)
