Matthew 7:7-11 "Don't bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn't a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we're in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn't think of such a thing. You're at least decent to your own children. So don't you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?
How many times have we started a prayer with - "God if you'll do this for me ... I'll........" ? - Here it tells us not to bargain with God! :-) God is NOT trying to withhold HIS blessings and answers from us - HE is longing to pour them out on us!
