December 13, 2010 – Wants vs. Needs

This past weekend I was listening to a live feed on the internet of  Bill Cloud teaching about multiple thoughts rolled into one huge concept.  Suffice it to say that I was challenged by the idea of God giving us what we want versus what we need.  The Scriptures show multiple times that YHVH gives His people what they want (ask for) only to show them that what they WANTED is really not what they NEEDED.

In short, my new way of praying for others is now going to be for YHVH to give them what they need in their lives to become more like Him, more like Yeshua, more refined into the gold He desires them to be.  There are those I still may pray for YHVH to give them what they want so eventually they will see that what they needed all along was Him, His salvation and His ways.
