The Bible shows the mind of God who wants to give gifts to us. How foolish of you if you do not receive the grace of God which He wants to give, and are destroyed! The mind of God that wants to give is greater and more earnest than our minds are to receive. When the mind of God wants to give and our minds to receive meet at the top of thirst and hunger, the impossible will be possible in an instant.
We didn’t ask the Lord to understand our situation but the Lord knew our situation first and showed us mercy one-sidedly. We just accept His love unconditionally knowing the mind of the Lord who showed us mercy. Our prayer is not one-sided. The Lord said He will help us when we pray. He promised that He will do whatever we ask in His name. Our prayer is according to the promise of the Lord. When we think about that, we, sinners, get a windfall, how grateful we must be!
Even the parents who gave birth to you can’t help you when you keep asking for help. However, the Lord says He will do whatever you wish until you die.
There is no limit with God of how much He will give us. He says He will do whatever you ask in His name. (John 14:14) He also says He did not spare his own Son and graciously give us all things. (Romans 8:32) That’s why we Christians are so lucky. If you don’t get what He gives or enjoy it, you are really a foolish person, who has lost your share. But not everyone can get it. There is a condition. When you come before the Lord poor in spirit, you’ll be given heaven. When you come before the Lord with hunger and thirst for righteousness, you’ll be filled. God is looking for people who are thirsty for the grace of the Lord.
