I have numerous evangelical friends, and they are constantly saying things like “Well, we will move if God wants us to” or “I will find a job if God wants me to” or “I prayed to God to help me get a good deal on the car I want to buy” or"I prayed to God that we sell our house for a good price". What am I missing? Is God concerned about where I live, how much I pay for my car, or sell my house for?
Perpaps I am not seeing this in the right light, which would not be the first time. I do pray, I could certainly improve and do better and more of it, but the things I try to pray for would not involve my car or a better phone plan or a move.
Any thoughts on what I am missing?
