Randolph Wilkerson said, "If you go to God with a thimble, you can only bring back a thimbleful."
My Nana use to sew and had numerous thimbles. Some were plastic and very light-weight, while others were metal and quite heavy. Then, they were different sizes depending on the project that she was working on.
Imagine if you spent six months living in a basement with rats. Everyday you pray for a safe place to sleep. Your prayers are finally answered. A friend offers you their living room sofa. After two weeks of living out of wal-mart bags, you start praying again. "Please, all I want is a room with a bed!" Three months later your daily prayer was heard. You find a six-by-nine foot room with enough space for your body, a bed, and four milk carts to hold your clothes. Why didn't you just ask for a three bedroom house with a basement, backyard and garage?
Because like most of us, the tendency is to limit God. For some reason, we get stuck in our immediate need and we think God is stuck there too. We believe that the one who created the earth, sun, stars, mountains, rivers, oceans and trees has nothing left to give. How long will it take us to realize we have an unlimited account with the universal bank? Our prayers make the withdrawals. Our faith is the deposit. Ask for what you want today!
