Who do you ask first?

BethanySMC - Thursday, 20 October 2011 02:50

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Mat 7:7-8

Who would want to spend time searching for something useless, perhaps with no value at all? At first, it seems that no one with common sense would do that; however, common sense nowadays is very uncommon. Consider how often you go online and hours later realize that you just wasted your time. You were searching for useless things that have no benefit at all – no eternal or practical value whatsoever.

Every time we need something, we have to make a choice. Everything offers us some kind of solution. The world, the flesh, friends, TV, books, and the internet – even the devil at times – offers something to your need.

God showed me in my devotions that often we choose to waste our time, get into trouble, and try one way after another – neglecting God and His promises. Maybe we forget or lack trust, or are too distracted to hear His still small voice, “my child, give me a chance to lead you. Let me give you exactly what you need – precisely what is best for you. Trust me; it is going to be good!”

We can save many headaches and avoid much trouble if we learn to come to God first. Ask… seek… knock. Our Father, will give you the very best. Just do not forget to say thank you afterwards. He will open up resources and you will find what you need in the fraction of time. He knows the future, He knows the end and He will make sure His gifts will not hurt you now and in the long run. What man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?  Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Mat 7: 9-11

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly Ps 1:1 Blessed you will be if God is your first counselor; if you come to Him first with a heart that trusts Him. If live with a high degree of pleasure and satisfaction in God He will give you the right desires and fulfill them for your own good! You will never regret that you asked God first! Perhaps after a while you will forget what it is to live with worries, stress and headaches.

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Ps.37:4
