“…which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
-Jesus, in Matthew 7:9-11 [ESV]
This has been a foundational verse for my husband and me during our walk through infertility. I’ve had it posted on my fridge, so I read it several times a day. I’m more of the logical, thinker, objective type of Christian, so I like how Jesus uses our knowledge of God to reason with us in our anxiety about unanswered prayer. Of course God will answer you, Oh Christian! Wouldn’t you answer your child? And you are the worst (I know I am!). God is the best possible Father that ever has or will exist… He will answer your request for good things. Let that calm your anxieties.
