So many times in life when we ask God for something we often fail to recognize what He puts before us. Throughout the Word of God the Lord teaches us to be alert to all things but far too often we miss things of God because He often shows up in places that we least expect.
It is in our nature to ask for immediate results and then overlook how God gives us just enough to get us through. If we were to receive everything that we asked for how would we know how to trust and appreciate what God has given? When we ask God to help us be alert for the parting of the seas but learn to appreciate the manna that supplies our needs.
It is how we learn to walk in life and serve with what we have been given that God will bless us with something more. I challenge you today and every other day to recognize what God has put right before you rather than wondering about something and possibly missing the blessing which you could receive…amen
