So uplifting and prophet Isaiah puts it this way" All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the LORD. But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word. (Isaiah 66:2, ESV)

God when we come before your presence let our prayers be sincere and aligned with your Will.

Mighty God, Lord of All, we come to You today to ask that You let it sink into us that it's Your will, not ours that will be done. Teach us to just sit silent, and let Your will unfold. You are God, You really don't need advise on what needs to happen. Let us accept Your will, and be glad that we have You in our lives. Let all we do bring glory to You. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Amen and Hallelujah! This is very well put. It does seem as when we mature and growing our Faith, God changes our desires to match his purposes for us and others. Allowing us to grow from a toddler having a temper tantrum, to being strong men waiting for his answers.

DAY 248: Getting Answers To Prayer

He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?  ~ Romans 8:32

Rookie Christians sometimes use God as some sort of magic lamp. If we pray hard enough and make enough deals with Him - surely He will give in and give us what we want. Right?  Wrong.  On every level.  It  doesn't work like that. 

God wants to give us the desires of our heart, but He's looking for a heart which beats like His heart. It's cool how the things we want changes as our faith grows deeper. 

Are you rubbing the lamp, hoping for a miracle?  Or, are you bowing before almighty God, asking for Him to put your words, your skills, and your love to work for His glory? 

When we focus on God, He fills our needs and sets our desires.
