Get what you ask for

Here is a fun message for today:

I typed in the words “Get what you ask for” in a Bible search.  This is what I got:

Jonah 1:11
The sea was getting rougher and rougher. So they asked him, “What should we do to you to make the sea calm down for us?”
It found a verse with all the words in it.  It just wasn’t what I was looking for!   Sometimes God gives us exactly what we ask for.  Sometimes He doesn’t.  Sometimes we need to wait.  Sometimes He gives us MORE than what we ask for.
The issue really isn’t about “getting anything” other than building our relationship with HIM.  If that’s what you get then you’ve already got more than what you asked for!
