asking for more…

So what does it mean to faith God? I just watched the movie, “Faith Like Potatoes.” Twice. It challenged me to ask with whether I really believe that in doing His work He is able to do far more than we ASK or imagine. But I am not sure I am ASKING enough. Are you?

We spend a lot of time analyzing whether we are doing His work. Maybe that is the wrong end of the stick. God’s job description might be much more simple than ours. Giving our all to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.”

But I am talking about the the Asking. What am I willing to ask of my Husband, my Dad, my Creator and then walk in belief that He is happy to say yes…That he is for me. That he is Good in all his ways.

The Bible says that we have not because we ask not. Can we walk in boldness without arrogance? Can we believe without doubting or grabbing the glory for ourselves?

One thought on “asking for more…

  1. Thanks for posting this! As the “I’m-supposed-to-be-able-to-do-it-all-by-myself-Perfectly-Now” first born girl, I often struggle with the asking thing.

    Over the last year, the Lord’s been talking to me about being child-like in my asking. Unafraid. Not worried if He can afford what I’m asking for. Not worried about whether I’m inconveniencing Him. Unhindered!

    Thanks for the reminder that we not only have permission for this kind of askin – it’s actually what He wants!
