Yesterday, I mentioned that the reason God leads us it for His name’s sake. That is, His reputation, His reasons. As I have reflected on this answer to prayer and look at my life, it occurs to me that there is nothing in my life that would merit God’s deigning to answer my prayer. Matter of fact, there is a lot that would argue against His answering my prayer.
That leads me to wonder, is it not for His name’s sake then that He chooses to answer us? I know there is nothing in me that deserves consideration by the creator of the universe. So He must have reasons greater than my merit or my weak faith. It must be His choice, for His purpose not necessarily, mine.
