A life lesson. Look how to receive more than you want

James 4:2-3  ‘When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures’.

I prayed to God for strength so I might triumph, He gave me weakness so that I could learn to obey humbly…

I asked for health so I could do great things. I was sick and still could do better things.

I asked for wealth to be happy; But in the middle of poverty I learned to be wise…

I asked for power to be praised by others, He gave me weakness so that I could feel the need of God.

I asked for all the things I could enjoy in life…

God gave me life so that I could enjoy all things.

I didn’t get anything I had asked for; but I received everything I had hoped for.

My unanswered prayers were answered…

I can say that I am the richest of all men.


‘Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete’. John 16:24
