Today’s devotional is teaching us about prayer. If we are truly a servant of our Lord, then we know that His will for us is the best thing for us. He would never want to see us suffer. Anything that we go to Him with a petition for, means we are asking Him, if this is in your will, would you please grant this desire. Often it is just taken at face value, often we desire things and request them for selfish purposes. God knows our heart and His plan is to always give us an amazing life and take care of our needs, just as He did the Isrealites He set free from Pharoah. Each step may not be what we wanted exactly, but that is because He is taking care of our entire life and what is best for us. He knows our future where we are only asking with the knowledge we have now. God wants us to remain in constant contact with Him, and knows what to give us and when to make our lives optimum. When we pray, if we truly love our Father we will want His will in our lives. We shouldn’t ever think He is not answering us because you didn’t get exactly what you asked for. Think back to a time when you were young and just fell in love for the first time. I am sure you would have prayed and asked the Lord to keep you together always. However as you grow and mature you might see this person wasn’t the best partner for you going forward, so think back in times in your life when you asked God for things that He didn’t grant, and in time it becomes very obvious as to why He had not granted that request. There are times that He simply has something better in store for you, and if we were to demand when we didn’t know better, then we would have had less than the best for us. Our life would not have met it’s full potential. God answers always the deep needs of our soul, not always the superficial desires of our eyes. We can count on Him to protect us if we set our will to His own, trust that His will is best always.
