”…make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon….” [John 15:7 The Message]
Evangelist John R. Rice once wrote, “I once imagined I was in Heaven. Walking along with the Angel Gabriel I said, ‘Gabe, what is that big building there?’ “You’ll be disappointed; he answered. ‘I don’t think you want to see it.’ But I insisted, and he showed me floor after floor of beautiful gifts, all wrapped and ready to be sent. “Gabriel, what are all these?” “He said, I thought rather sadly, ‘We wrapped these things, but people never called for them.’ “
Recently in many different ways God has been answering prayers that were prayed many years ago—little things, little desires of the heart that I had forgotten about—things that to others would perhaps be normal or totally meaningless. However along with the wonder of these little things the Word of the Lord came to me—“…you have not because you ask not…” My prayer since has been more full of the question—Lord for what shall I ask? And the answer—be more at home in me and my words at home in you—ask for the manifestation of a deeper reality of an intimate relationship—and so now I have the confidence that whatever I ask shall be given—that my God shall supply all I have need of according to His riches in Glory in Christ Jesus—that nothing is too hard for Him—all things are possible and asking becomes an attitude of expectation whatever is needful is already provided for.
Thou art coming to a King. Large petitions with thee bring; For His grace and power are such. None can ever ask too much—John Newton. Our heavenly Father is such that you may ask too little but never too much!
