You asked God to enlarge your territory and when He cleared those unfriendly folk from grazing in your pasture, He was giving you room; why are you looking lost? You should be roaming in the fields trying to see where you should be planting your harvest. You asked God to elevate you the next level and now that the folk on the job increased your work load, why are you complaining? You do know that with elevation comes enlarged responsibilities, don’t you? You asked God to send you a husband but now you’re complaining because the mailman is hitting on you. You ask God to manifest His gift in you then you complain when folk ask you to use it. You ask God to use you spiritually then you got the audacity to say no when the pastor call on you. Baby, be careful what you ask God for! See, when you ask God for things, He allows them to be manifested in the natural. It’s not so He can see if we will fail in doing that which we’ve asked of Him but it’s because He’s providing for His children. Luke 11:9 says, “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” For Luke 11:10 picks up and says, “For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
This is why you have to be careful what you ask for, if you aren’t ready to receive. Stop asking God to open doors that you know you are fearful to walk into! You ought to know by now that God didn’t make His children with a component of fear. Build your faith up! Stop asking God to elevate you to places and then when you get there you realize you are petrified of heights. Chile, don’t you know being in God’s hands in the best parachute to be in? He won’t let you fall even if you happen to fall? Build your faith up! All I am saying is this … When you ask God for something; He gives you that which you ask for but greater. When you ask for water, He gives you living water. When you ask for life, He gives you living. When you ask for a blessing, He gives you an inheritance. When you ask for a gift, He gives you a talent. When you ask for a husband, He sends you a help mate. When you ask for a financial blessing, He sends you favor. And when you ask for grace, He sends grace and mercy! God gives you what you ask for but you have to be ready to receive it. Don’t ask in vain.
