I wrote about this verse yesterday, and then immediately I was like “Eek, this is a big one! What the heck am I doing?!” Jesus said that we can pray about anything, and if we believe we’ve received it, it will be ours. That opens the door to a whole lot of questions, doesn’t it? I’m not even going to pretend to try to answer them, because I couldn’t if I wanted to. A girl could drive herself crazy that way.
But I know these words are true, because Jesus spoke them. I also know God’s love for us – all of us – is miles wider than we can even imagine. And that what He promises always comes to pass, even when it happens differently than we imagined. And most of all, I know that when we have questions, He is the answer.
“I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are Yourself the answer. Before Your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice?” ― C.S. Lewis
I loved what Krystle said in the comments yesterday about drawing close to God and allowing Him to reveal His heart to us. If you haven’t read it, check it out.
And I would love to know what you guys think. Share it in the comments. I hope you guys are all filled with the knowledge that God loves you. That He sees us as we are, where we are. And that we can boldly approach Him in prayer, knowing He loves to give good gifts. And most of all, when we have more questions than answers, that He is always the answer. Have a great weekend!
