Motives count


Motives count

The Word

“And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.” James 4:3


Motives count with God! Yes, he is the good Father, his love has no limits, and he is always faithful. In fact, he is perfect in all of his ways. He is never deficient of any resource; he is never unavailable for inquiry or consultation.

He invites us to join him in his most fantastic and flawless architectural design for the good of human kind. Those aligned with him are promised success as defined by him. He will provide everything necessary to complete what he has planned for us as we serve him in our part of this divine adventure.

When it appears he has not provided, it is because the need has not truly arrived by his calculation. We do not always see his broader design and purposes at work. Then there are the times some perceive he has not supplied a resource, when in reality, the deeper reason for the assumed unanswered prayer, is simply because of asking with wrong motives. He will supply everything needed to fulfill his will.


Give today all required to accomplish the desires of your heart heavenly Father. Amen.
