The bible says that the Lord fulfills the desires of those who fear Him
It also says if you delight in the Lord, that He will give you the desires of your heart
It also says if you ask for something in His name you will get it
It says if you believe your prayer has been answered it will be acknowledged
It says where two or three are gathered in His name, there is God with them
And Luke says God takes care of you when you seek His Kingdom
While Matthew adds seek His Righteousness and His Kingdom
I find in my own life, God gives me what I want if I fulfill five conditions
1 - I’m ready to receive it
2 - I’m seeking Him or obedient to His Will or Command or Instruction
3 - What I want is something I’ve worked for or am willing to work for or is something I deserve and am entitled to it something that God believes will make me a better person
4 - What I want does not interferes with God’s Will or purpose for my life
5 - God does not have a special reason to withhold it from me in the immediate future because there is no test or lesson or penal reason or obstruction of others that would be caused if he did not withhold it
It puzzled me at first, cause I thought, God gives me the small things I want when I seek Him, like my favourite healthy Chinese dessert, or some cheap sea food or a favourite social activity such as a walk in the park or a game of chess
But if I want something big, like my own house and a husband, I rarely get even opportunities to pursue what I want.
So I did some analyzing and this is what I concluded.
