We turn God into Santa Claus or a bell hop. But God is interested in giving glory to himself. God said, “I am the LORD: that is My name: and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images” (Isaiah 42:8).
This is the reason James says, “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts” (James 4:3). God will answer personal prayers but not selfish prayers.
Is the glory of God the desire of your heart? You see, the end of all things is not things, but God Himself, when your heart is consumed, not with the gifts of God, but with God, the glory of God.
Jesus said, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
