eSeed: Wishful Thinking

Read 1 John 5:14 NKJ

After thanking the Lord for a good day, and asking Him to bless her family, little Debbie prayed, “Dear Lord, please make seven plus six equal 11.”

“Why?” asked her mother.

“Because,” she said, “if it’s not, I’m going to fail math.”

The Lord is all powerful. But there are some things He can’t do. He can’t sin or act contrary to His nature. His unlimited power always operates in harmony with His goodness and wisdom.

The Lord is more anxious to answer than we are to ask, and more able to give than we deserve. But He always acts according to His will.

The Bible says, “If we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us.”

Prayer: Come Thou, Lord Jesus, into our hearts and home. Keep us from doing and saying anything that will shame Thee. Grant that we may be responsive to Thy voice: in Thy name. Amen.
