“or if he asketh an egg [or if he shall ask an egg], whether he shall areach him a scorpion?” (Luke 11:12, WYC)
Have you given your child a scorpion — a creature capable of killing your offspring with a single strike — when she pointed into the refrigerator and reached out to the carton of eggs? If so, then you are considered an extraordinarily inept parent, perhaps an immoral one at that!
Therefore, when you ask God for a blessing in line with His perfect will, He is incapable of denying you that good thing. This denial of good goes against His very nature; and that nature is perfection.
Father God, we praise and thank You for Your perfect will for our lives. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
