Ask and Receive

praying“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” Matthew 7:7

I read this interesting quote from that famous author, Anonymous: “Three simple rules in life:  If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it.  If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.  If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.”

This can be applied to all aspects of our life, but especially in our walk with the Lord.  We all want to see Him do great things in our family, in our church, and in our community.  He is waiting for us to step out in faith, to pray specific prayers, and to ask for miracles.  As we receive amazing answers to our prayers, faith rises in our hearts, and we are inspired to ask for even greater things.  As we praise Him for what He is doing, we grow in our relationship with Him.

Prayer:  Lord, help us today to ask for great things from you, and to be willing to step out in faith to see them accomplished.
