Another Lesson From The Dog

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Yesterday I posted how my dog will beg for food and we as Christians should beg for more of God. To be close to Him and experience more of Him. Last night I thought about how my Gizmo will only beg for food from certain people, because he is afraid of more then others. My brother is one that Gizmo will not beg for food. He may sit and watch him but he won't cry. My brother has put fear in Gizmo. Now don't get me wrong Gizmo loves him and will wag his tail but he is also afraid of him. We realized how much Gizmo was afraid of my brother when he picked him up one night to keep him from going outside. Well poor Gizmo hyperventilated on us and ended up getting sick.

There are some things that I think we shouldn't ask God for but wanting more of Him is one that he doesn't mind people asking for. As Gizmo is afraid of my brother we don't have to be afraid of asking God for a deeper experience. We can come boldly before Him in prayer.
