It is hard to believe that you can just ask and receive what you want. James wrote’ “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” I have heard this scripture before, but I do not go to God for my worries and cares until a storm start raging. This is not good because I am using God as a genie. We are not supposed to seek God whenever we are in a storm. We are supposed to talk with God every day. We are supposed to ask God help for others. We are also supposed to ask God to send the holy spiritual to guide us. We are supposed to always consult with God about everything. We must also not doubt his word. We have to wait on the Lord. We have to believe that he will deliver us through any problems that we have. We also have to be grateful and accept how he grants our wishes. Remember he is not a genie. He is God and he knows what we need. Do not get hang up on your wants because what you want might not be what you need. This is a good way to tame the tongue. If we talk with God through prayer and meditation, we will keep our mind, thoughts, and tongue in check.
