God doesn't give us everything we want!

"God does not give us everything we want. But he does fulfil his promises." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We have been tricked into believing that we can "name and claim" anything in the name of Jesus, but when those prayers are not answered, then we feel let down or betrayed by God. I am sure that Bonhoeffer prayed for his safe release from prison, during Hitler's reign of terror, but that never happened. God kept his promise to be with Bonhoeffer through all his struggles and suffering. I believe that God also welcomed Dietrich into His Eternal Home with open arms.

What do you think?

2 Corinthians 1:20 - For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

Living in Grace
