Write to Joyce
“God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.” – St. Augustine
Oftentimes, we wonder why God hasn’t answered our prayers, why He hasn’t given us what we desire. We were taught that we only need to ask to receive and that we only need to seek to find, but we have asked so many times and sought for so long, but we still fail to find what we were looking for.
Could we have forgotten something else? Could God have forgotten our prayers?
Many times, the answer is not whether God is willing or not to give us what we need, but whether or not we are ready to receive His many blessings.
Could we be asking for all the wrong things that won’t do us any good? Could we be refusing greater blessings because we just couldn’t let go of what we think we want?
God is more than willing to give us great things, He desires it for us much more than we could ever desire them for ourselves! But He is waiting for us to open our hands and receive them. He is waiting for us to let go of what little we think we have, so He can bless us with more, to finally be empty enough to be truly full!
I am the Lord, your God… Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. – Psalms 81:10, WEBBE
