Enjoy Serving God

Verse 4b of our Bible Reading says, “…he will give you what you want.” If it is true that God will give us whatever we want, then maybe we should ask God for lots of money so we will be rich. Or maybe we should ask God to make us popular and famous.
We need to pay attention to the first part of verse 4, “Enjoy serving the Lord.” When we enjoy serving God, we become closer to Him. We begin to think more like God. We start to want things that make God happy. We want things that help us be closer to God. So, we ask God for those things. God will give us what we ask. Why? Because we ask for things that will bring us closer to Him. We ask for things that will help other people learn about Jesus.
So remember the whole verse: “Enjoy serving the Lord, and he will give you what you want.” Truly enjoy serving God and wait for Him to give you things that are best for you.
