I’ve come to realize that it’s all in who you ask. See, I asked God to enlarge my territory and he called me to minister. I asked God to increase my gift and I became a published author. I asked God to use me and He said you’ll have to go where I send you. I asked God to heal my heart and He said you’ll have to love again. I asked God to give me sight and He said you’ll have to see the good and bad in folk. I asked God to clean me up and He said I will but you’ll have to get dirty again, in this line of work. I asked God to forgive me of my sins and He said you have to forgive too. I asked God not to forget about me and He said I won’t but there are some things you need to forget about too. And when I did … thangs start happening in my life, for the good! God shifted my life and hasn’t been the same and neither have I and it was because of who I asked.
I told you before that you can continue to pray until something happens but something is defined as an unspecified object when you ought to be specific in your prayers to God. Don’t you know the bible says in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and you shall receive?” Matthew 21:22 says, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Get this, 1 John 3:21-22 says this; “Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.” Isn’t that enough for us to go to God with our desires to ask of Him that which we need? Why are we without? Why are we in need? Why are we suffering? Every day should be a day of rejoicing, if we are in the body of Christ. It shouldn’t matter whether the day is good or bad, it should be a day of rejoicing especially knowing that we can get whatever we want from our Father who is in Heaven. Why are we, as a body of Christ, suffering? It seems to me we are either asking the wrong person, asking the wrong questions or either we are out of the will of God? What do you think? It’s all in who you ask! You don’t have to believe me but try it for yourself and you’ll see. Ask in faith!
