Do you receive what you ask the Lord for?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes
I read a quote today that made perfect sense. I had never thought about it that way before, but it is so true. The quote is from O. Hallesby and it’s below.

“If God does not give you something you ask for, wait on Him. He will speak with you tenderly and sympathetically about the matter, until you yourself understand that He cannot grant your prayer.”

I was thinking about this quote and it came to me. It’s possible that the reason why God is not going to grant your prayer is because you are either not supposed to have whatever you asked for or you must go about it a different way. This could mean you have to work harder to get what you want because it’s not going to be handed to you or it could mean that what would happen after you received what you prayed about would have a negative outcome.

Just because you didn’t get what you wanted doesn’t mean God does not listen to your prayers. Let him speak to you and he will explain why he is not going to give it to you. You might be relieved and thankful in the end.

God knows what you need, so thank him for it!

Many know that God knows what we need before we even ask it. Matthew 6:8 says Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. So if this is the case, then we need to make sure when we ask, we thank him immediately for the result. When we continue to thank him for these things, the devil can’t get in and try to take it away.

The devil is here to kill, steal, and destroy and if we let him in, he will do is best and could very well succeed. We don’t want him to do this, so it’s very important that we stand strong on our faith and that we continue to pray and thank God for what we ask for.

So the next time you are in need of something, make sure you ask and then thank God for the result. Be specific as to what it is and then stand strong and wait for the result to happen.

Bible verses to live by!

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

I’ve been searching the Bible for a couple different Bible verses and found what I was looking for. They are definitely verses to remember, say everyday, and to live by. Here are the three I was looking for.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Matthew 21:22

And all things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.

Mark 11:24

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believeĀ  that you receive them, and you shall have them.

I hope these verses mean as much to you as the do for me.
