Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
Godly parents love their children. They always want the best for them. They would never hurt or deceive them. A rock given to a hungry child instead of bread? Unthinkable! A snake given to a child expecting a fish? Absurd!
The heavenly Father loves his children and always gives them good gifts. He offers eternity to us free of charge. He loves us so much that he sent his Son to die for our sins on the cross. Since he did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all, “how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32).
Prayer is talking to God and asking for what we need. He loves to hear the requests of his children. He will never trick us, deceive us, or give us something harmful. He will give you what is good…when you ask.
Talking to God
Father, I am asking that you provide me with your good gifts. Thank you for the promise that when I ask, you will give me exactly what I need to do what you are calling me to do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
