Have you ever prayed to God for a thing you thought you needed only to realize later that it was really a want? Are all of our needs good things? Do we sometimes need correction? What does it mean when the Bible says ‘according to His riches in glory?’ Well, I haven’t met or heard of a rich man yet who can afford to create a planet full of biodiversity much less a universe. Oh and don’t forget the qualifier at the end that Paul loves to use – in Christ.
