Patmore: God's answers

Saturday, September 30, 2023
    From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.
    —John 1:16 (NIV)
    God usually answers our prayers according rather to the measure of His own magnificence, than to that of our asking; so that we often do not know His [benefits] to be those for which we besought Him.
    ... Coventry Patmore (1823-1896), The Rod, the Root, and the Flower [1895], London: G. Bell and Sons, 1907, p. 14 (see the book)
    See also John 1:16; 1 Kings 3:11-14; Ps. 23:5-6; 145:18; Acts 12:5-17; Rom. 10:12-13; 2 Cor. 12:8-9; Jas. 1:17; 2 Pet. 1:3-4; 1 John 4:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your abundant grace fills the lives of Your people.
