So when I ask God to answer my prayers, I know he can do it. He can do it in any way I ask him to. But he chooses not to. Why? Because he knows better. One time I was at the hairdressers and I asked for grade 4 on my sides and back and a trim on top. She said, however, "I'm going to do grade 5 instead, because it looks better." She was right because she knew what she was doing. And I trusted her.
So when we pray, we need to pray in the knowledge that God's understanding is much greater than ours. If I can trust a hairdresser to do what she does then surely I can trust the God of the universe. It's a lesson that I've been learning recently.
- What is the worse haircut you've ever had?
- Would you have a gold feature wall?
- If you could tell God how to do his job, what would you tell him?
