Journey to Wholeness

Matthew 7:9-11
“Which one of you would hand his son a stone when he asks for a loaf of bread, or a snake when he asks for a fish? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.”

If a child asked to have a gallon of ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner…what loving parent would say ‘yes’? Just so…could it be that what we think we want from God might actually not be what’s good for us? We may really want something…but is what we want really to satisfy a self-centered desire…or is it something that will be life-giving to us and others? If God is like a loving Father…we must trust that such a God would give each of us what we need so that each of us can fully become the unique person that we were intended to be. This is what God wants for you…for you to become whole and your “true self.” Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the desire to ask God for what you truly need.
