Today, I was driving in my car listening to Travis Greene’s new album on pandora. If you haven’t heard it, check it out. It’s good.
One of the songs is called, Have your way (Great Jehova). As I listen to the words, “we are desperate, we are waiting for you Lord, have Your way,” I thought to myself, are we really waiting on God or is God waiting on us?!
Not a moment goes by and I hear the Lord say:
I’m waiting for you
Ask and you shall receive
Seek and you will find Me
I’m waiting for you to ask Me
You know where I am
Ask Me for what seems impossible to you
What may seem impossible with man, is not with Me
What do you need to ask Me D’ondra
I tell the Lord that I feel like I can’t ask for things because I don’t want what He doesn’t have for me, plus I don’t want to seem greedy. He proceeds to tell me:
I started to think about my prayers. Like, have I not asked the Lord for anything, that can’t be right. But, I do find myself telling Him thank you for my many blessings.
I’m glad you’re thankful
Now let Me show you what I can do for you
There are things I want to give you, but if you push them away because of how they come to you, it’s like you’re telling me No, you don’t want it because it didn’t just appear in your hands
There are going to be things you have to work for and there will be blessings that come your way without asking
But a closed mouth doesn’t get fed
I know you don’t like to ask, but you can ask Me
I am always here for you
Now, ask Me
The last time I tried to keep my mouth shut about something, the Lord asked me why I was hiding what He was doing for me. So, let me tell you what’s going on.
We need a new car. My car has been acting up. I took it to the shop to get looked at and the mechanic doesn’t see anything wrong with it. He told us not to drive it far and to bring it back if it acts up again.
I can’t take that gamble, I drive my kids around all over the place for practice and games. God forbid I get stuck who knows where, with or without my kids. They depend on me, and I depend on my car.
So, having said all that, I am asking the Lord for a car and the money to pay for it. In my mind, that seems impossible, but nothing is too hard for my God.
What do you need to ask the Lord for?!
