Motives-Mark 10:51

It is hard to believe that the Lord would ask us what He could do for us. However, sometimes that is the question we must answer. Bottom ass was blind, and he knew exactly what he wanted Jesus to do for him: restore his site. Only when we pray according to God‘s will is He pleased to grant our requests. We will not see our prayers answered if we ask selfishly. If God refrains from giving us what we are asking, we should evaluate our prayers. Are our motives selfish? Are we asking for far less than God wants to give? Are our requests worthy of the God we approach? Do we lack the faith God requires to give us our desires? Is there unconfessed sin? God delights in responding to our requests. If we will ask according to his will, we will receive far more than we anticipated!
