I might not be worthy; matter-of-fact, I know I am not worthy to ask for anything more than I have already received, but I won’t allow that knowledge to keep me from the wisdom of asking God for what I both “want” and “need”. Why? Because it’s the “asking” that keeps us HONEST!
As the saying goes… “Honesty is the best policy”
Jesus said, “We have not because we ask not”. When we ask, we are saying to God, “I want to believe, but help my unbelief”, and by continually asking, we are continuously being confronted with the truth. And that truth is that every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord, and we leave it up to him how he dispenses it, and rest in knowing that it will bless us when it is all said and done.
It keeps us honest by reminding us each and every time that we ask that it is in God in whom we live, move and have our being. It keeps us honest by reassuring what we believe – that God does answer prayers and gives us the dreams of our hearts, and brings our minds back to reverence that who he is as the Creator.
Asking is an act of “faith” that God will be God! And faith is what moves the heart of God on our behalf… So, whatever you do – don’t stop asking the Lord for _______. Only you can fill in that blank. Never leave the space blank for very long. If you keep on asking, you will keep on believing and if you keep on believing, you will undoubltly keep on receiving. Just being honest!
