God is Not Your Butler

Intriguing stuff at Peter Cockrell's blog God is Not Your Butler « Already Not Yet featuring quotes from Thomas Watson, a Puritan pastor from 350 years ago, on reasons why God delays answering our prayers. Love the second point:
That he may humble us. We may too easily assume we merit some ready answer, or that he is at our beck and call like a butler, not as sovereign Lord and loving Father.
Ouch! God is not my butler? What a concept! Why has no one told me?
