“To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto Him?”
It’s absolute wrong as many Christians thought they can persuaded God to get their needs by all means; this same attitude had drag Adam into act of disobedient to God’s commandments, and he was banished from the Garden of Eden, which led to suffering and hard labor till this present day, said the Bible.
“And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;”
To wait patiently for God’s time is the perfect way to receive from Him, since God cannot be persuaded or force to do what He would not do, saith Lord Jesus Christ.
7. “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.”
Believers are hereby called to correction and be not as the earthen who has no inheritance in God’s kingdom; to wait patiently for God’s time is the best way to receive from Him.
Therefore brethren, wait upon the Lord till you receive from Him, and He will surely answer your prayers in due time, Amen.
Jesus Christ is Lord
