CONFIDENCE BUILDE

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us; and if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him (1 John 5:14-15).

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will give him astone? or if he asks for a fish, will 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 gifts to them that ask him? Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even to them; for this is the law and the prophets(Matthew 7:7-12).

Be careful for nothing;but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6). Feed your confidence with the word.
James 4:2
…all of you have not, because all of you ask not. 
John 16:24
Until now have all of you asked nothing in my name: ask, and all of you shall receive, that your joy may be full. 
Psalm 2:8 
Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession. 
Psalms 24:1 
The earth is the Lords, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 
•You can ask God for anything in the world as long as it is holy, righteous and good. 
•Remember it is just as important to ask God for things for others as it is to ask God for things for yourself. 
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!

IT DOES NOT HURT TO ASK

Even though the sons of Zebedee were ambitious and it appeared as though they craved positions, they followed the principle of asking to receive. Their request was an impossible, but they were yet trying to secure a position of rulership because of their carnal or worldly mentality. But Jesus, before this, tells us that we have to forsake all and give up all for Him and God; Verse 29 says we will receive 100 times more. Job was a testimony of God’s return or his investment in God. When you invest your time, money and all to God He will give you one hundred fold and as we see in verse 27 nothing is impossible with God. “And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.” – Mark 10:29, 30

However, to receive from God we must be His servants; willing and able to save in His kingdom on a daily basis. In Mark 10:45 Jesus tells us that He came to serve and not to be served. This shows His humility and love for mankind, which also depicts our Father’s unlimited love for us. Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Jesus tells us that, as His servant or disciple, we will go through things that He went through (Mark 10 verse 39). John 16:33 confirms it when it tells us that as His servants in the world we will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, because He (Jesus) have overcome the world. Since he overcame the world, in Romans 8:37 He tells us that we are more than conquerors. Romans 8:1 reminds us that there is no more condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who walk not according to the flesh, but after the Spirit of God.

Being servants to God and people displays God like qualities of Jesus and His love for others. Disputes cause divisions and that’s not what God is about (Mark 10:35-45). Division is of the devil because he knows that united we stand but divided we will fall. Unite with Jesus and we will never fall.
