Years ago I ordered a plant from a mail order seed catalog. At the bottom of the printed form there was the statement: “If we do not have the article you ordered in stock, may we substitute?” The variety wasn’t essential, so I marked ‘Yes’.

When my order arrived, it included something that was worth double the price of the article I had requested, plus several other items. The company explained, “We are sorry we do not have the article in stock which you ordered. We are sending you something better at our expense.”

The neat thing about prayer is that God sometimes substitutes something even better than that which we requested. He is always watching out for our good, and sometimes says ‘No’ for our own good, with a soon coming much better substitute.
