Just Ask!


For the past month, I have heard the Lord say over and over to me: “JUST ASK.”  I have shared this with my Church, and I want to share it with you as well – What do you need? This is a fresh invitation to ASK.

“Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?” – Luke 11:11, NASB

You can come boldly, confidently and securely, because you are His CHILD. You are His precious one. You are NOT an orphan. You are NOT a victim.  And He is a GOOD FATHER, who only longs to give you GOOD THINGS when you ASK HIM.

Ask for the first time, or ask again. All ears are on YOU.

ASK! I hear Him say…ask, I will hear. I am waiting to shower you with My love and My provision and My ever-increasing glory. I want to give you MORE. I want to bless My children. I want to meet your every need. I am so FOR YOU.  I’m just waiting on you to ASK ME.

Ask and I will give you the nations (Psalm 2:8).

Ask and I will tell you great secrets you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3).

Ask in my Name and I will do it (John 14:13).

Ask and I will give you wisdom (James 1:5).

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7)

Now is your season.  If you’ve been afraid to ask God for things in the past, I invite you to do so NOW.  He’s a good Father, waiting to give you good things.  And even if what you ask isn’t what He has in mind, you can TRUST that because He is a good Father, the answer to your prayer will be BETTER THAN EXPECTED (see Ephesians 3:20).

Another thing to note is that He does not WITHHOLD any good thing from you, if you love Him (Psalm 84:11).  He doesn’t hold out on you because of your mistakes or bad choices.  He is a Father who loves to dote upon His children!

“For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all!” (Psalms 84:11, TPT).

Go for it….just ASK!
