Father Knows Best

June 2

“And he gave them their request,
but sent leanness into their soul.”
Psalm 106:15

Be careful what you pray for. It is better to surrender to the will of God than to press him again and again for what you think you MUST have. Sometimes he will grant those requests but if they are not his will for your life, they will produce “leanness” in your soul, taking the place of the richness he preferred to produce in you.

Don’t doubt the wisdom of God. Don’t doubt his love for you. Let him bring into your life what he knows is best for you. He is trustworthy. He is faithful. He is intimately involved. And in the end you will rejoice when you see that what he brought is eternally better than what you thought you had to have.
