You are a child of God. You are not less than that. We are seated in Heavenly places. So think about this for a moment. God asks that we become as little children, right? So I am seeing a child coming up to her Heavenly Father who is seated at his throne and she goes up and asks for cookie. So he takes out a cookie and gives it to His child. We are that child, you are His child.
God says, that if we ask for anything according to his will, he hears us.
God hears all our prayers and all our petitions. He does not ignore them. Some he does not answer right away, some he makes us wait and others he answers and some not as we think. But he answers them.
I than see this little girl coming up to his throne, but this time Jesus already has the cookie waiting for her before she even asked of Him.
Jesus already knows what we are going to ask before we even ask of him as stated in Matt 6:8
Keep coming to Jesus no matter the plea. Keep pursuing, keep coming! Be persistent!
The more we pursue him the more become like him! Glory
