April 18, 2018 asking

Standard

“That night the answer to the mystery was given to Daniel in a vision. Daniel blessed the God of heaven, saying, “Blessed be the name of God, forever and ever. He knows all, does all: He changes the seasons and guides history, He raises up kings and also brings them down, he provides both intelligence and discernment, He opens up the depths, tells secrets, sees in the dark—light spills out of him! God of all my ancestors, all thanks! all praise! You made me wise and strong. And now you’ve shown us what we asked for.” Daniel 2:19-23 MSG

Good morning, Child of the Living God.

Miracles happen in the asking. But, asking takes us to a place of humbleness. Asking means we give up control for a time, acknowledging we need direction.

We need help.

We need the surge-power and the stay-power of the Almighty.

We gain strength and power in the ask-process.

When we ask we are seeking.

With time and practice and experience with the Holy Spirit, we learn that when we ask, we are sure to get more than what we are fishing for. We begin so naive-simply entertaining thoughts of love, or job security, or money that lasts and lasts. In truth … we’d like to be fed everything without doing much work. In God’s economy, we learn from history that nothing of value ever develops this way. His ways are right.

When we ask, we not only secure relationship with our Creator, we also enter into God’s timing. He begins the process then and there. As we get to His point of delivery from our petition, all of the “oops, I’m not ready…I need time” questions and fears bubble up. The truth is, we are never really ready for the process that lead us … because getting there – to that thing for which you asked … well, that is a walk of trust. That’s the place you jump, full of faith – because your faith and the delivery of His discernment and intelligence and Light is all you’ve got. And, it is enough.

You asked.

He delivers. Trust Him here.

Wake up.

Jump.

Go.
