Good Gifts from Your Heavenly Father

Matthew 7 11

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 7:11

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. (NLT)

Doesn’t it make you feel happy when you give your children the gifts that they’ve asked for? The look on their faces when they open the perfect gift is priceless. Now, think about how much more your heavenly Father also wants to give you good gifts from the riches of His glory. God loves you and it makes Him happy to bless you with the desires of your heart when you delight yourself in Him. God already knows what you need before you ask but He still wants you to ask and if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer according to His will.
