Just Ask!

The Favor of God

You have not because you ask not!

What are you asking for?
What have you asked for?

Ask your Father in Heaven... Yes!
Ask people here on earth.... Yes!

God didn't give me a big mouth for nothin!  I ask!

Yes, I have to get over it... set my pride aside, open my big mouth and ask!

Matthew 7:7-77 (NLT)
7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 
 9 “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.


Luke 2:52And Jesus advanced in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

The picture of the fog is like a visual of word pictures I've been reading in Hinds Feet On High Places. Thank you for sharing those encouraging verses. When we are caught in the fog, we can forget those things.

I sometimes think we believe God is trying to trick us. We make up all sorts of formulas for "how to pray", when all He really wants is to spend time with us, and to converse. Asking flows so easy for such a relationship.

Great post!
