Human beings tend to be so arrogant. We try to bargain with God and tell Him we will make this deal or that with Him. Like we really have anything to offer Him! Nothing we have is ours, from the cars we drive to the air we breathe. We have no right to try and deal. Besides that, we don’t need to. All things come from Him to us because He loves us, not because He needs us or because we promised Him something. He is already complete. He doesn’t need us to like Him, He doesn’t need us to do Him favors, nor does He need the things we might offer Him. He simply loves us, as a father does, and gives generously to us out of that love. If there is something you truly need then ask your Father and He will provide for you- without the bargains and deals. He will not hold His help hostage for ransom. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened. Our struggles are meant to mold us, to better us and your answer may not always come in the form you expect it. Look for what God is doing within your needs and trust your Father’s process.
