Puller is one of the few alternative Christian rock bands still leaving a mark today. Three of Puller’s members were once part of For Love Not Lisa back in the 1990’s. I was introduced to Puller by a compilation disc created by Tooth & Nail Records. Puller possesses the sound of a secular band, but has released songs like Wishing that contain a deeper meaning inside their lyrics.
If you then, evil as you are, know how to give good and [h]advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father Who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give good and [i]advantageous things to those who [j]keep on asking Him! 12 So then, whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do also to and for them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the Prophets, Matthew 7:11-12.
Too many times in life I find myself wishing for something to happen rather than pray for and believe in God’s power to perform a miracle as I pray. The context of the passage above relies on asking, seeking and knocking on God’s door until you receive answers to your prayers. When you listen to Wishing by Puller in the future, make sure your prayers are based upon belief and faith, not just a wish.
