A Hard Gift To Accept

posted by Guy Finley

Question: As a child and a younger person, my prayers were answered almost immediately. Now I’m supposed to be wiser, more mature, experienced, and it would appear as if my prayers take a longer time to be answered or manifested. I wonder if I’m getting in the way of myself?

Answer: It may not seem so, especially when we have our hearts and minds set upon an imagined outcome, but the great and compassionate Wisdom that guides all of life never makes a mistake with what is delivered to us moment by moment. For one example, looking at the question from the idea “As above, so below”… a good parent knows that sometimes the very best thing he or she can give a child is to refuse them what they have asked for. Why? Because that’s the only way to teach that child values that are greater than the thing he or she wants. God acts in mysterious ways, no doubt! And the only way to find out if the Divine wants you to have something greater than you can imagine is to accept its gift of “Not now, and not as you want it!”
