God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.
My favorite thing to do when watching a live Christian program is read the comments. So many people from different continents, nations, and tongues all sending in their petitions. It makes me forget my own problems for a while.
But something interesting always happens. Whenever I see a petition like ‘God heal my son of Autism’ or ‘God heal my spouse of HIV’, I chuckle in disbelief. Like, people are born with Autism. It’s in your DNA. Why would God do that? And why does your spouse have HIV? Where did they get it from? To the best of my knowledge, HIV can not be cured.
This mindset of mine also reflects in my prayer life. There are requests that I feel are dead on arrival, thus doubting the impossibility specialist. So even when I pray about them, it’s like water poured on stone. Nothing happens because my prayer lacks faith.
I am still on the journey to complete belief in God. There are times where being learned has its disadvantages. Your intelligent self keeps asking, ‘How can this be so?’ We forget that we ought to walk by faith and not by sight.
However, I tell you something for free, while I have never seen anyone get healed of Autism or HIV, I wake up every morning. That, to me, is the greatest of God’s blessings because every other thing comes after it. Dead men don’t worry about autism or HIV or job promotion.
If God can wake you up, best believe he will fix other parts of your life, too. I hope the next time I write to you on matters like this, I am more immerse in the Knowledge of God’s power over every and any thing. There is nothing too hard for God to do.
