We often have preconceived ideas as to how God is going to do something for us. We have certain ways we want to see it happen, but God may have a different idea.
"God, This is the Way I Want It"
II Kings 5:8-15
"But Naaman was wroth, and went away and said, Behold, I thought he will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper." II Kings
