They have the, “What can you do for me?” mentality etched in the back of their minds.
They look at the other person’s bank roll and feel they can get a slice of the pie if they run their game right (of course this doesn’t apply to YOU godly woman, right 🙂
Some people may view their relationship with God the same way.
The only time God hears a peep out of them is when something is wrong, when there’s a storm in their life, or when they need a financial miracle.
Some view God as their slot machine – if they pull the right levers at the right time then cha ching! “Lord, I believe I receive my financial breakthrough right NOW!” and they’re all shoutin’ and dancing in church and may even throw in an extra dollar in the offering bucket, expecting their hundred fold return tomorrow.
Yet they never take the time to really come to God, get on their knees to pray and simply say, “Thank you.”
It’s okay to come to God in prayer not asking for anything at all.
A healthy relationship is not built on one where one party is always receiving, but where both parties both give and receive.
Give God your time, give God your adoration, give God your love, expecting nothing in return, and in the end you’ll find you’ll be blessed and that God will favor you – simply because you seek His face and not His hand.
Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Psalm 27:7-8
