It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. So often in our lives, we find ourselves searching for answers to life’s questions. We desire to understand what God’s divine plan for our life entails. We do not have a problem trusting in the Lord, but a sneak preview of what He is doing would be appreciated. Have you ever wondered how the storms in your life would make you stronger? While you are enduring them, you fail to see your renewed strength. Have you ever prayed for God to take the pain away? As much as you believe in the Lord, the pain and suffering has become overbearing. Have you ever asked God to remove people, places and things away from you? You discern that ungodly behavior has attempted to suffocate you. Can you relate to any of these questions? Do you know someone who can?
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, You Have Not Because You Ask Not! When you were growing up in your parents home, you asked questions about everything. When you did not understand something, you quickly posed a question. The same behavior is required in your walk with God. God is a loving God. If you need understanding, it is granted through your ability to ask for it (Proverbs 4:7). The Bible declares in Matthew 21:22 - And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. You Have Not Because You Ask Not! In our lives, many people possess internal anger toward God. There are times when you think He has dealt you an unfair hand. You fail to see how His plan for your life will work together (Romans 8:28). The Bible declares in John 14:13 - And whatsoever ye shall ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
My brother, my sister, what question do you have for the Father? Do you desire understanding of your life? Has sickness touched your body and you want to know why? Has your finances experienced a dry season and you do not know what went wrong? You Have Not Because You Ask Not! The Bible declares in John 15:7 - If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. God, the Father, has left the door open for you to ask of Him. It is not God’s will to leave you confused and disheartened (1 Corinthians 14:33). Your life is in the palm of God’s hand. He will not let you fall. He will not allow the enemy to destroy you. The Bible declares in John 16:26 - At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: You Have Not Because You Ask Not! Challenge for Today: When you have a question, begin to ask God for the answer.
May God Bless you at Your point of need!
