Who knew that a day could be made glorious because a boy wiggled his toes?
We pray and plead, reminding God — as if He needs reminding — of His infinite power, of His ability to work wonders, and all the while we remind ourselves of the many reasonable reasons why He should choose to deny our requests. And so, although we pray and believe He is able, we settle ourselves to hear Him say “No.” We forget that He is the God who designed us to glorify Him in our enjoyment of Him, the Father Who loves to give good gifts to His children, Whose goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives. We limit Him to our reasonable reasons, and we are astonished when it looks as though He may say “Yes.”
Answering “Yes” or “No,” He is the same God, steadfastly good; I know that.
But today the boy wiggled his toes; my God reminded me that He is larger than I ever think Him.
