Ask Him Again | Your Daily Devotion | May 11

ask

“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.” Matthew 7:7

Ask Him again.

I know, I know, you’ve already asked Him a million times, I see those eyes rolling.

But today, ask Him a million and one.

Yes.

Ask Him AGAIN.

Ask Him again for that child to come home.

That marriage to be healed.

That mountain to move.

Ask Him again for that friendship to mend.

That work to begin.

That end-of-tunnel light to appear.

Ask Him again for the one who needs rescue, the one who needs healing, the one who needs new direction, new guidance, new focus.

Yes.

Even if that ‘one’ is you.

Ask Him again for what you need.

For what you want.

For joy in the sorrow.

Help in the struggle.

A sip of living-water in the heat of your schedule…and the time to just sit at the well, amen?

Ask Him again.

Not because you don’t think He heard you the first million times, but because you are realizing the longer you truly live, that persistence is a pretty strong faith-builder; not to mention how close it keeps you to Him for whom all things are possible and nothing is too hard, and because faith-based strength to persevere and closeness with your Creator is what you REALLY need.

Whew. Yes. Absolutely.

Ask Him again.

Dear God, thank You that I can keep coming to you over and over with all my needs. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Even Though My Arms Are Empty, They Are Full of Hope

Admittedly, my relationship with hope was complicated. On most days, it felt like an avenue of disappointment. But we hope not because of what we receive but because of Whom we receive regardless of the outcome.
