What We Ask Of God Is Limitless

It is so easy to pray a prayer, asking God for our needs and wants. What we fail to realize is that he takes that prayer to dreams and wishes  way beyond our wildest imagination. Let's just suppose you pray "Dear lord, I just want to be able to take care of my family, put food on the table , pay the bills, help others in need." Simple enough right? The answer is yes. However what if God did that of what you asked? By making you owner of a fleet of trucks, planes and trains that shipped food all over the world and supplied clean water and electricity to villages in third world countries? Would not your prayer be answered? God provides, yes. But God provides in his way and in his time. He may be laying a foundation by you living life's lessons. So that when your blessings arrive you will value them all the more. It is so easy for us to think selfishly, and small. When we get beyond that we open up a vast world. Nothing is impossible with God. Remember that. Always give from your heart, always have an open mind. Try not to judge, less you will be. Compassion and empathy go a long way. And it is certainly okay to be wrong. Correct it if you can. Forgive it if you can't and move on.

I John 4:16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
