Five Best Things God Never Said, Part 2: God Never Said He Was Your Santa Claus

Oftentimes to make God look better, we think, we promise things God never promised: things like an unending string of prosperity, and a life filled with all the things you’ve ever wanted.

The truth of the matter is, God never promised to give you all you wanted, no matter how you live, what you do, how much faith you have, or how much of the Bible you’ve memorized.  What God does promise is that we’ll have all that we ever need.  The Scriptures promise that God will supply all of our needs according to His riches and glory.

The truth is, oftentimes God does give us the things that we want, things that we don’t really need; but the extra things in life that make it a joy, and fun, and full of anticipation and surprise.

So if you have a relationship with God where you’ve been promised that God would give you all you want and that His provision of everything you want is a sign of His approval in your life, then relax.  God knows exactly what you need, when you need it, and it will be there on time; maybe not early, but never late.

Remember, God never promised that you’d have all you’d ever wanted, just all that you’d ever need.
