Seek The Lord Through Prayer:

Since I don’t believe in magic or genies, I have rephrased today’s question to “Seek The Lord Through Prayer And Hope To Get Answers.”

The original question for today was: You have three magic genie wishes, what are you asking for?

As a Christian, I know that the Scriptures tell us that magic is wrong. I also know that God can do much more than any magician can.

Seek The Lord Instead Of Magicians To Reveal Dreams:

There is a story in the bible where a king wanted to know the meaning of his dreams. And he called all the magicians and astrologers before him.

But they could not tell him the meaning of his dreams. Eventually, the king was told the meaning of his dream by Daniel. Daniel only knew the meaning of the king’s dream because he sought God through prayer for an answer.

 The Chaldeans answered the king, and said, “There is not a man on earth who can tell the king’s matter; therefore no king, lord, or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician, astrologer, or Chaldean. 11 It is a difficult thing that the king requests and there is no other who can tell it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh. Daniel 2:10-11

The Man Of God Gives The Revelation:

So Daniel (a man of God) went in and asked the king to give him time so that he might tell the king the interpretation. 17 Then Daniel went to his house and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, 18 that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. 19 Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven. Daniel 2:16-19

Prayers I Seek The Lord And Hope Will Be Answered:

I seek the Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and ask for His Kingdom (Him) to come.

When I pray to God, I tell Him I am looking forward to a day of no more tears and suffering.

As I desperately seek Jehovah through prayer, I ask Him to protect me from all the evil that may surround me.

Who Will Not Inherit God’s Kingdom:

So, as a Christian, I will never call on magic or sorcery because that could cost me my eternal Salvation.

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: [d]adultery, [e]fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, (magic) hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, [f]murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21

  1. As a Christian the wisest thing to do is to seek the Lord when you need guidance or answers in any area of your life.
    Seeking/consulting other sources like magicians can easily be seen as idolatry, a thing God detests.

    1. Yes, I would even say that when you seek magicians or things like that, you’re seeking the enemy (Satan) but some do not realize it.
