Don’t worry. Just ASK

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7 NIV).

God never closes his storehouse until you close your mouth and stop asking.

God wants to help you, but if you don’t ever ask, that’s a problem.

The last time your church needed volunteers for a new ministry or more resources to serve people in your community, did you ask God?

Before you decided on the best way to solve your latest ministry problem, did you ask God for wisdom?

When you needed help in a relationship, did you pray about it first?

Jesus says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7 NIV).

When you need God’s help, remember to ASK: ask, seek, knock. God spells it out in this verse three ways so that you will get the message.

Maybe you never see miracles in your ministry because you never ask for them. If you want to see God work in your ministry more, start asking!

God wants you to ask for things in prayer because he’s a loving Father.

Like any father who loves to give his kids good things, God loves to bestow gifts on his children. He’s just waiting for you to ask.

“You have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy will be the fullest possible joy” (John 16:24 NCV).

God wants you to ask so he can give.

He wants to give so you can receive.

He wants you to receive so you’ll be full of joy.

He wants you to be full of joy because it’s a great advertisement for Jesus Christ.

Joyful Christians show the world that following Jesus and doing what he commands brings joy, not dread.

Stop worrying about your future. Start praying about it! When you do, you’ll have a lot less worry and a lot more joy.
