He deprives to give

There’s an amazing thing about broken hearts. When you don’t get what you want, you discover a need. When you discover a need, you begin to ask. When a request is unfulfilled, you keep asking. Sometimes He doesn’t give you what you ask for when He wants to give you something more. Sometimes He doesn’t give us right away because He knows there’s something better. Or so we can keep asking. Because it is in the process of begging that we are elevated and brought nearer. It is in the process of asking that we are brought to the foot of His thrown. It is your need and helplessness that drove you to His throne. He deprives to give.
