Ask Him Again!

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall
find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For
every one that asks receives; and he that seeks
finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
(Matthew 7:7)

I know, I know, youíve already asked Him a million times, I see those eyes rolling. But today, ask Him a million and one.

Yes. Ask Him again!.

Ask Him again for that child to come home. That marriage to be healed. That mountain to move. Ask Him again for that friendship to mend. That work to begin. That end-of-tunnel light to appear. Ask Him again for the one who needs rescue, the one who needs healing, the one who needs new direction, new guidance, new focus.

Yes. Even if that Ďoneí is you. Ask Him again for what you need. For what you want. For joy in the sorrow. Help in the struggle. A sip of living-water in the heat of your schedule...and the time to just sit at the well, amen?

Ask Him again. Ask Him again to provide springs in your land; and while youíre at it, give thanks for that land, no matter how dry it is now, knowing Heís given it to you with good purpose.

Yes. Ask Him again.

Ask Him again to dig up the soil and plant the seeds. Ask Him again to stir up and settle, make and remake, pour out His peace that passes all understanding, because frankly; you could use a hefty dose about now.

Yes. And Amen.

Ask Him again for all that seems lost and all that seems nowhere even near the city of possible...and ask Him believing He can.

Yes. Ask Him again.

Not because you donít think He heard you the first million times, but because you are realizing the longer you {truly} live, that persistence is a pretty strong faith-builder; not to mention how close it keeps you to Him for whom all things are possible and nothing is too hard, and because faith-based strength to persevere and closeness with your Creator is what you REALLY need.

Whew. Yes. Absolutely. Ask Him again.

With fresh eyes and a renewed spirit and a passionate resolve that He can, and if itís His Will...He will.

And if itís not, you will keep on asking. You will keep on seeking. You will keep on believing. Because persistent faith is where itís at. It fastens itís gaze on hope. The hope that is always three steps {Father, Son, Holy Spirit} ahead, providing the perfect focal point.

Yes. And it never disappoints. Amen.

So today; bow low, look up, and ASK HIM AGAIN!
