Have you ever felt like God isn’t there for you? You ask, and pray for His blessing on a new job, a pay raise, a new relationship, but all you get in return is silence.
Why do you feel this way? Is it really that God is ignoring you, or is it that you have some things in your life to shore up before He does?
Why a Rebellious Nature Could Prevent You From God’s Blessings
A kid once told me he didn’t believe in God because God never did anything for him. I responded, “In addition to loving you, He’s done everything for you. You’ve just failed to realize it.” God will never do what you want Him to if you’re rebelling against Him.
If this describes your child, ask him if he loves his pet. Then ask him if he loves Rover enough to bless him with treats. Now, what if Rover kept chewing up his cell phone? Would he feel right about blessing Rover with treats then? Finally, ask him if this would make him stop loving Rover- or ever stop trying to get him to behave? By this time, Junior should realize that perhaps he’s been chewing up God’s cell phone.
