Keys to the Kingdom

Why in the world would I want something to happen in my life that God didn't want to happen? And why wouldn't I want what God wants, instead? I am becoming more and more convinced that it is foolish to ask God for something—anything—that He doesn't want for our lives.
In other words, the question should shift from: “God, will You please agree with me in this situation and give me what I want?” to “God, will You please show me what You want in this situation so that I can agree with You?”
Sadly, too many of us would respond with, “What's the point of a relationship with God if I can't get “my” prayers answered?” But such a faith in God, presented as a way of getting “my” prayers answered, is a mutant form of faith that is not at all reliable.
