Inspiration from day 2 of the @YouVersion plan ‘Calling Out To God’. Check it out here for audio:
Be happy with the Lord . He will give to you what you most want.
Psalms 37:4 EASY
It is important for us to not forget to include the very next verse,
Commit your way to the Lord ; trust in him, and he will act.
Psalms 37:5 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/psa.37.5.ESV
Some branches that are part of me may have no fruit on them. My Father completely removes all those branches. But other branches do have fruit. My Father cuts all those branches to make them better. Then they will be good and make more fruit. The words that I have spoken to you have made you good already. Continue to live in me, and I will continue to live in you. A branch cannot make fruit by itself. It can make fruit only if it continues to be part of the vine . You are like that. You cannot make fruit unless you continue to live in me. I am the vine , and you are the branches. You must remain in me and I must remain in you. Only if you do that will you make plenty of fruit. That is because you can do nothing without me. If anyone does not remain in me, that person is like a dead branch. The gardener will throw that branch away and it will become dry. People throw all those dry branches into the fire so that they burn. You must remain in me, and my message must remain in you. Then you may ask for anything that you want. And God will do it for you.
John 15:2-7 EASY
Also, we can really trust God to help us when we turn to him. We know that he will hear us. When we ask for anything that he wants us to have, he listens to us. Since we know that, we also know that God will give to us the things that we ask for. It is like we have already received those things from him.
