God Answers Prayers

It never ceased to amaze me how God answers prayers.  Contrary to what I have been taught, I see God as One with a sense of humor.

If I asked for strength, He will put me in the most awkward if not difficult circumstances.

If I asked for patience, He will give me difficult people.

and I have been praying for humility, and God’s answer came in a very uncomfortable way.

All I can say is : be careful what I pray for.

He answers prayer, but often not the way I am expecting.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9
