Matthew 7:7 Ask and you shall receive…

I once read the story of the father of a houseful of orphans whose faith moved mountains. He laid out a table one morning, with bowls and cups though there was no bread or milk to give the orphans. He prayed to the Lord, and after he prayed, the baker was lead to bring the bread and the milk truck broke down in front of the house and the milkman gave them milk to lighten his load.

I thought of the prayer he must have prayed that morning. “Lord, you started this program, but now there is no food in the house for your little ones. This is not how you promised it would be. People are not helping out and this burden is too hard to carry alone. Why is all this happening right now? I see empty plates, and hungry faces and I am desperate. Please do something now...”

Or maybe he prayed like this: “Lord, You started this program, but now there is no food in the house for your little ones. I know you are a God of provisions and abundance, so I come to you, asking that you provide for them this morning, as you have always done. I cannot fathom your methods, but I know you provide results, so I wait on you to give us today, our bread and milk for breakfast. Thank you for your faithfulness...”

Now, neither of these prayers is right or wrong, and most of us have prayed both ways at some time or another. The difference between the two prayers is that one looks at the Lord through the situation, and the other looks at the situation through the Lord. And what is nearer always seems larger.

Always look at life’s situations through the Lord.
