ASK IN FAITH FROM GOD
Jesus told His disciples "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"

Like children, we need to ASK for help when we need it - and we need it A LOT! Also like children, we need to ask IN FAITH believing that our heavenly Father hears our prayer and will answer it in his perfect timing - FATHER KNOWS BEST!

This morning, while reading the book of James, I was reminded of this same principle. He writes, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."

Today, I ask, "Dear heavenly Father, will you please bless each person reading this now? Will you put your arms of comfort around them, make your face to shine upon them and be gracious to them? Will you please open their eyes and heart to your truth today and multiply your love, your peace, & your joy in each of their lives? Thank You, Lord Jesus, that the joy of the Lord is our strength and thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Amen!"
