We are not created by God and then left alone. I’ve heard people proclaim their view of God is that he gave them what they needed and they are left to do the best they can with it. In these verses, we hear God Almighty longing for his chosen people to include him in their lives. He desperately wants to give them more blessings—provide for them, guard them, guide them—but they were living on their own.
James 4:2 says: “You do not have because you do not ask.” Do you have a need? Do you have a concern? Do you want more in this life? Go to Jesus; trust Him to show you a plan that is for your BEST.
“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” (30:18).
