Is it a want or a need? To be honest, sometimes we confuse the two. We can become so focused on our wants that they feel essential to our lives. Then when GOD doesn’t meet what we consider a need, we get angry or frustrated.
When we feel this way, we should ask ourselves, do I really need this to accomplish God’s purpose for my life? If we can’t complete the Lord’s assignment without it, then it is most definitely a need. He will answer when we pray for Him to fulfill that requirement.
God is also pleased to satisfy wants that fit within His purpose and will. (Psalm. 37:4) He isn’t obligated to grant any wishes or fulfill any plans but His own. He says that those who seek Him will not lack any good thing. God wants to be His children’s greatest delight. However, let’s make sure we’re not seeing or using Him as a genie in the bottle. He is our Father and He will supply all of our need.
