"God is Waiting for You to Ask"
“If you … know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7: 11 NIV
We sometimes forget that God is the source of everything. He made it all and it’s His to give away. As you depend on God as your source for everything, there are four truths you need to remember.
First, everything is a gift from God – You didn’t earn it. God gave it to you as a gift. It comes out of His grace. If He didn’t want you to have it you wouldn’t have it. That’s why we’re asking God to give it to us, because it is a gift.
Second, there’s nothing you need that God can’t provide – Do you have the vaguest idea of what you’ll need tomorrow or for the rest of the year? No matter what you need God has the power to provide it. God has unlimited resources and He’s waiting to share them. How do we get them? Ask!
Third, God wants to give you everything you need – God is not reluctant to meet your need. He’s more than willing to share. He just wants you to be polite.
Fourth, He’s waiting on you – If you have needs that aren’t being met, it’s not God’s fault. He’s waiting for you to ask. James reminds us that the reason we don’t have is because we don’t ask. God daily and richly provides for us. If you need something just ask Him.
Peace in the Lord,
