WHY DOES GOD SAY WE SHOULD ASK? GOD HAS SAID HE KNEW US EVEN BEFORE WE WERE BORN, HE MADE US IN HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS, THEREFORE HE KNOWS OUR NEEDS AND THOUGHTS EVEN BEFORE WE ASK SO WHY THEN HAS HE STILL COMMANDED US TO ASK? WHY NOT JUST GIVE US RIGHT?
Alot of us(including me) often wonder, why still ask if God already knows? Its like why still ask for school fees when daddy already knows I need it and it’s essential? Now you get my point.
First off, we should ask because God has commanded us to ask. And isn’t our ultimate objective to do as he commands
Secondly, not only does God command us to ask he also commands us to be persistent in laying down our petitions to him as in Matthew 7:7.
We know that God’s time is the best and even though he knows our desires, he gives it to us at times he feels appropriate or right for us in he gives it to us just in the right quantity. Sometimes also he just wants to see the level of our faith and persistence hence the delay. Therefore when you ask and are not given seek and if seeking doesn’t work, take a bold step and a leap of faith to knock sp the door can be opened to you. God is always available to hear you. Lean not on your own wisdom nor understanding leave it all to God to handle. According to apostle Paul. ” you do not have because you do not ask.” You weren’t made to be independent, kneel before your creator and ask.
REMEMBER; to never let your anxiety take over you, ask God for peace and let God take charge.
