I asked the Lord what He wanted from me. I immediately knew that was the wrong question with the wrong attitude and said with a smile, “What do you want for me?”
He’s not after our sacrifice. He’s not after our suffering. He’s not after our obedience and worship for Himself. He’s after our hearts. He’s for us.
When He requires our worship, it’s for us.
When He requires obedience, it’s for us.
When He requires suffering, it’s for us.
When He requires sacrifice, it’s for us.
He’s not trying to get from us. He doesn’t need anything. We’re the needy ones. He’s doing everything for us. It’s what we need, so it’s what He wants for us.
Keep your thinking right toward God. He is for us, not against us.
He’s only good and always good.
