The word I have been continually hearing from Heaven is ASK. The particular scripture I base this on comes from Luke 11:9. In the early stages of my journey with the Lord I had no clue what to do in terms of where to begin in the Word. The Bible itself was overwhelming to me. But, I figured that if I could go after God with the same intensity and effort that I had used to pursue men, drink, and drugs, I would be able to discover if God was real.
Not knowing where to start, I just started opening my Bible, landing upon random scriptures, believing I would somehow KNOW it was where I was supposed to be. One night, I opened the Word and it fell open to Luke 11:9. A rush of heat flooded my body all at once. Was it God? I didn’t know. I read the scripture aloud and then a voice said, “What do the first three letters of ask, seek and knock spell?” I looked and what caught my eye was that they spelled ask. I was stunned for a moment but knew deep within myself that God was telling me to ask Him, so that is what I did. I started asking God so much that one evening, I looked up to where I thought God would be and could almost imagine Him sitting in heaven, looking at the twelve disciples stating, “I certainly will be glad when Molly comes home. Think of all the time I will have for everyone else!”
With fifteen years of “asking” under my belt, I am telling you to ask God for what you need. Ask Him for what is on your heart. I don’t care if it is for a mate, about your finances, furniture, or a closer walk with Him to obtain your purpose in this earth. He is waiting but YOU have to do the asking. YOU have to do the seeking. YOU have to do the knocking. God is not going to make anyone do anything.
God was my only hope left at the time I turned to Him and my prayer for you is that you seek Him long before He is your last hope.
“You have not because you ask not.” James 4:2-3
