A sermon was preached yesterday based on the premise that God knows what we need before we ask...before we even know that we need it. (this, I totally agree with)...
and the instruction: instead of "me, me, me"...for one week, we are not to ask God for anything, but rather we should wait and trust because He already knows what we need.
I'm holding on because I am in constant supplication for strength and help. And I'm supposed to not ask God for anything? Not even help?
Excuse the language: bullshit.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
Give us each day our daily bread.
Jesus instructed us, ask. that's good enough for me.
I suppose what got me into trouble was that I said so...in front of my family...and it was my brother-in-law that preached the sermon...
