Sometimes I wonder if God doesn’t answer our petitions right away because he is waiting for us to ask a better question. What if our expectations limit what He wants to do? What if we listened to how Jesus prays for us?
Now to the God who can do so many awe-inspiring things,
things greater than we ever could ask
through the power at work in us,
to Him be all glory in the church
and in Jesus the Anointed
from this generation to the next,
forever and ever.
(Ephesians 3:20, 21 The Voice)
