I wait for you, O Lord; You will answer, O Lord my God.
There’s a gift under the tree, and it’s for you. You have no idea what’s inside, and you can’t wait to open it. Whatever it is, you know it’s going to be something absolutely wonderful, not from the size, shape, or weight of the box, but because of the person it’s from. Like a little kid, you can hardly wait until Christmas morning to find out what it is!
When you ask God in prayer to grant your petitions and desires, you know He will answer with a gift especially for you. What you don’t know, however, is what the gift will be, or what it might look like or what shape it may take, or even when it might come into your life. But because you know the giver, you know it will be exactly what’s best and needful for you.
Answered prayer comes from the Lord who loves you deeply and takes pleasure in delighting you with His gifts. From him, whatever it is, you know it’s going to be absolutely wonderful.
