Because my faith is very important to me, I look to the Bible for wisdom and guidance on a daily basis. One of my favorite passages is Ephesians 3:16-19. We have such small hearts and minds, compared to God’s, that it is very difficult for us to understand the depth of His love. Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians is a good one for us – that little by little we can come to understand how tremendous God’s love is for us.
At one point in my life I was a bit afraid to pray for God’s will. What if it wouldn’t be a good outcome, I wondered? What if God wanted to teach me a lesson that I needed to learn the hard way? A friend’s words of advice have always remained with me – that when we pray to the Lord for His will to be done, we can rest assured that it will always be in our best interest. We can know this because God loves us so very, very much that He always wants the best for us. Therefore we can earnestly seek His will in our lives with confidence and hope.
