LORD, TEACH US TO PRAY
"If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?" Luke 11:11,12
Our heavenly Father knows what we need even before we ask Him and He would never deny us unless what we were asking for was something that was harmful to us. Earthly fathers do the same, they grant the wishes of their children unless it is something they either don't need, or if it is not good for them.
Over the years I have worked with drug addicts and alcoholics and I have seen many set free by the power of God, but the greatest enemy to these was a parent who would enable them to continue in their addiction by giving them money or transportation that allowed them a way to the "Dope House!"
God knows whats best for His children and loves to give to us and bless us with abundance, but He would never give anything to a child that would harm him or be a determent to his life! If we ask in faith and pray for our needs to be met, God will begin to give us the desires of our heart!
"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" Luke 11:13
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
