Her life in tatters after leaving the narcissist, the Princess made of the King her first request;
“Please bring me a man who is the exact opposite of Silver-tongue, the narcissist.”
The King decided to grant her request because she needed to learn. She should have asked for wisdom.
The next man, a double minded man, was the complete opposite but just as perverse.
The foolish princess still hadn’t learned and asked the King to bring her someone else.
It was another soulish prayer; “Please bring me someone who sees me for who I really am, and desires me.”
“Be careful of what you ask,” the King replied, wanted the Princess to see herself through His eyes.
Granting the Princess her wish, he summoned Ishmael, a foreigner from a far off land, a man of a different kingdom and faith.
It was a test. Would she stand for the King, or fall for Ishmael?
Ishmael loved and desired the Princess, and he did restore her self esteem. But Ishmael could never be hers.
“Why did you bring me Ishmael?” the Princess exclaimed, knowing this was not the King’s will.
“You asked for him” the King replied.
She should have sought the will of the King.
This was not a fairy tale.
The story of the first and second wish are in my book.
Here is wisdom, when we ask God for something, we need to ask according to His will.
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 1 John 5:14
