“The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous.” Proverbs 15:29
God wants you to ask – anything!
Whatsoever you can ask that will move God to demonstrate His power in your life and cause His Name to spread all over and move people to give glory to Him everywhere – that is what God wants.
But He says you must ask in righteousness: “If ye abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7).
Make sure you are living the Christian life.
Make sure you are an obedient child of God.
Make sure you are committed to the ordinance of Christ, that you abide in Christ and the word of truth abides in you.
Make sure you are living by the word in your personal life, in your marital life and in your family life; you are living by the word in your business life; you are living by the word in your academic life.
Then you can ask because you belong to God and you are a child of God.
I heard of a man of God who came to the airport and discovered that the plane he was to board had already taken off and he needed to get to his destination in order to keep an appointment.
So, it came to his mind that God said “Ask anything,” “Ask and it shall be given unto you.” He lifted up his eyes and said, “O God, I want to go on my journey and the plane has left, but I am asking that this plane that is going should come back for me.” Praise the Lord!
Has it happened like that before? Do not mind whether it's has happened before or not; just pray.
God is saying you should ask and He will do it in your life. He wants to magnify Himself. He wants to glorify Himself. He wanted people to experience His awesome power.
When situations are difficult and you bring such difficult situations before God and He manifests forth His glory, people will believe God.
When the man of God prayed, the pilot felt that he forgot something and turned back.
But what do you think he forgot? It was that man of God!.
Thought for The Day:
In righteousness, before you call, God will answer you.
The Song of The Day:
All prayers He will answer
Bible Reading for The Day:
2 Kings 12-14 John 5:25-47
