Good Morning September 16

God sometimes gives us what we want, but it doesn’t always turn out for our good. This was the case with King Hezekiah. (Isaiah 38) God told him to set his house in order, he was about to die. He wept and begged the Lord for more time, and was given fifteen more years. Yet, it was in those fifteen years that he made some terrible and costly mistakes. God is a gracious Father inviting us to come to Him with all of our needs and requests. He knows our situations of life, the desires of our hearts, and our deepest needs. He encourages us to pray without ceasing. But that prayer is with a humble heart, seeking His perfect will. It is also desiring that all answers to prayer declare His glory. He is our Father and wants the best for us. It is a humble, trusting, child-like heart that finds His very best.
