2Chron 1-3 How would you answer God?
What is on your wish list? Is it for fame, riches, glory? Is your wish list compatible with God’s? When God asked Solomon, he said, “May your promise to my father be realized…” [2Chron 1:9] Because he did not ask for riches, wealth, or honor, God was pleased and added those besides the one thing he asked for.
What about us? How would we answer God’s question?
We have been blessed beyond all we could ask or think. God has promised us that if we seek him, he will be found. The gospel writer Matthew wrote the words of Jesus: “Ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”[Matt 7:7] The Apostle John added that: “Now this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” [1Jn 5:14]
What is on your wish list? Will you claim the promises of God?
