Titanium Tinkleberry: The Dog Whom I Love part 6
God being omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient in our lives has a similar advantage since He can see 360 degrees around our situation and is the creator of the human spirit. He should be easy to trust and the first person we run to for advice. “Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him,” (Matthew 6:8 ASV). But we don’t go to him first. We believe that He already knows so why should we have to ask. Titan whines when he wants to eat. It is his way of asking. He gets very unsettled and he is impossible to get rid of. He follows me everywhere and anything is an indication that now might be the time to eat. He expects to eat and he expects me to feed him. But even though he expects it to happen, he still asks. Our children expect that we will provide for them. They know that we will feed them and give them things. Yet they still ask and they don’t just ask they keep on asking.
“Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened,” (Matthew 7:7-8 Amp). What happens when we become adults? Things change and who we see as our caretakers change. We start to believe that because we have grown physically that we no longer have caretakers and don’t have a need for that innocent love. We know that we know that we know that shouldn’t lean on anyone any longer. We need to forge ahead. When we grow up, we no longer see caretakers instead we become caretakers.
