Symphony of Prayer: Prelude - The King is Good

Bible Verse: ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:11‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“If you, imperfect as you are, know how to lovingly take care of your children and give them what’s best, how much more ready is your heavenly Father to give wonderful gifts to those who ask him?”

Thought:
I’m reminded of the C.S.Lewis quote from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, where they are talking about meeting Aslan the Lion, and to the question “is he - quite safe?”, the response came “Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” As we look through the pages of scripture we find so many references to God’s immense power, He said let there be light and there was, He devastated Egypt with plague after plague, so many people died as they mistreated His presence, surely we come to a God of fearsome might and strength. In Exodus 33 we find Moses asking of God “show me your Glory”, think for a moment about the fearsome acts that God had performed to bring the Children of Israel to this point, then understand the significance of God’s response to Moses, “I will cause my Goodness to pass before you”. This All Powerful, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, King wants us to see, know and experience His Goodness. In Romans 8 we read that we have been adopted as God’s own children, we are His, and as we approach our Heavenly Father, having confidence in His Goodness, we confidently answer the question “how much more ready is your heavenly Father to give wonderful gifts to those who ask him?”
