I've been talking to God a lot recently, and we got a nice little conversation going. Whenever I have a question or concern, I'll get the answer in the form of a Bible verse. Either I will randomly stab my finger into a physical copy of the Bible, or my Bible app does the job for me.
Somehow the daily verses that pop up on my cell phone's lock screen seem to match exactly what I'm currently thinking (or fretting) about.
I received the Bible verse in the image above when I asked God how to communicate with my manifestation fans many of whom, no doubt, are more of the New Age persuasion than the Christian one.
I thought this Bible verse—which popped up on my phone literally a minute later—basically says it all. Manifestation in itself is not an evil thing, but the keyword here is, "according to his will."
God loves us more than anything in the world, and like any good father, he wants to sustain us. He has no interest in us walking around dressed in rags, homeless, and starving. But it's a far cry from asking him for the things that sustain us when we try to manifest frivolous things that are selfish wants rather than needs.
Also, when we think of sustenance, we need to keep the spiritual sustenance in mind. We're only here on Earth for a little while, but the afterlife is eternal... and you better have a plan for that.
What I'm trying to say here—probably pretty awkwardly—is that it's much more important to ask God for things that are important in the bigger picture, rather than objects that won't have more than fleeting value.
Things that you should ask God for every day:
It's funny how we all scramble to find happiness, but true happiness is actually really close at hand. All you have to do is stop obsessing about yourself and your life, and start thinking of others instead. You'll find that everything you need and want for yourself will then naturally fall into place.
