When Jesus asks us what we want Him to do for us in regard to the incredible thing with which we are faced, remember that He does not work in commonsense ways, but in supernatural ways. – Oswald Chambers
You Don’t Have…Because You Don’t Ask
- Matthew 6:8
- Matthew 7:7-10
- Mark 10:46-52
- James 1:5
- James 4:2-3
There are a number of verses in the Bible that speak of the importance of asking. How can we expect to receive something that we haven’t asked for. God knows our needs before we ask, the key to asking is seeking the Lord first so that our asking lines up with His. Why would want to receive something the Lord doesn’t want us to have?
If God knows what we need before we ask, they why ask? Like our own children, we love hearing their precious voices. All that we ask for must never be amiss, in that we would want things that would not be beneficial to us.
Our prayers must be prayed in faith, believing that their isn’t anything that God can’t do.
Dear Lord, we want all that you want for us. Give us a boldness to ask for things and the faith to believe that you have heard that prayer. May we never demand, and trust that if we should ever ask for something that is not of you…please don’t give it to us. Thank you that you always hear our prayers. In Jesus name we pray…amen!
