It’s In Your Asking…@Godswill4me

Asking requires you to be humble before God.  It requires submission to His Will for your life. God isn’t going to give you anything outside of His Will.

If you reject keeping His commandments and reject repentance why would you ask Him for anything, anyways if you are not willing to give up anything?

Repentance causes God to respond to your requests, but again, He will respond in accordance to His Will, not your willSometimes what we “will” is not what’s best for us; this is the reason for asking God, “If it be thou will, ___________.” 

Submission involves sacrifice. 

What are you willing to give up for God to move, create miracles, in your lives?  If God says stop ___________, would you be willing?  Will your submission be temporary?

Remember, God weighs the heart.  In other words, God knows our motives behind or actions and our asking.

Thought: We are often confused, in a depressed state, when we choose what we want rather than what we really need.  For example, you might want someone in your life who means you no good just because they look good, smell good, and ‘talk a good talk,’ but in reality, they are out to disturb and distract you from getting to your NEXT level in God. Trying to keep someone in your life that shouldn’t be there, in the first place, causes us sleepless nights and feeds insecurities and false perceptions, thus creates a false reality.

8 Ingredients to Prayer:

  1. Thank God for being God, for being Ruler above all rulers, divine, supreme, His sovereignty
  2. Thank God for past victories (faith experiences — faith boosters), thank God for expected victories
  3. Thank God for your friends and enemies
  4. Thank God for His everlasting grace and mercy
  5. Ask God for forgiveness (repentance), in sincerity
  6. Ask God for purification, sanctification (renewed mind)
  7. Ask God, “if it be Your Will, ________ (making your requests known)
  8. Finally, seal your prayer with “In Jesus Name, Amen.” –Amen signifies that you have asked in the right motive(s) and you have been truthful.

A prayer with a purpose: If it be the Will of God.

Today’s Scriptures:

1 John 1:9 GW | God’s Word Translation

God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.

Luke 5:12-13 CEV |Contemporary English Version

Jesus came to a town where there was a man who had leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he knelt down to the ground in front of Jesus and begged, “Lord, you have the power to make me well, if only you wanted to.” Jesus put his hand on him and said, “I want to! Now you are well.” At once the man’s leprosy disappeared.

Matthew 26:39 | New International Version (NIV)

Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

I am a sinner saved by God's grace. I do not profess to be anything more. My purpose in life is to "Empower People To Get From Where They Are To Where They Are DESTINED." There is no other way but through Jesus Christ, the shedding of His blood for us. I am moved to encourage people to want to use God's Word as their instruction manual in life. As I grow in the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of His Divine plan for my life, I pray I can be a blessing to you.
