Charisma magazine Do you think you are entitled to a loving husband or wife, obedient children, and a lovely home in a tree-shaded neighborhood? The opposite of embracing your portion in life is feeling you are entitled to a portion that you are really not to have. —Chuck Pierce

I recently came to the realization that I have had an entitlement mentality. I am now trying to submit to what God has provided me with and what He has called me to do. It’s not easy and sometimes I think the church sends mixed messages in trying to speak about power and promises.

Care to explain further how the church sends “mixed messages?”

Many ministers and churches act as though it is our right to “success”—American style. We portray a sort of entitlement/agreement faith to people. A formulated faith, A + B = C. We are thinking about getting what we want with little pain or struggle and feeling that we have a right because we are children of the King.

I agree. I struggle with the fact that the Word says: “Ask and you will receive” and “You have not because you ask not.” I have asked, and yet I don’t have. The conclusion that I have drawn from that is that God is not punishing me; in fact I love the Scripture … that says the Lord withholds no good thing from those He loves.
