God Always Provides. All You Have to Do Is Ask
“Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?” (Romans 8:32 NLT).
When I was a kid, anytime I needed something, I’d talk to my dad. Sometimes I needed something expensive, but not once as a kid did I worry about where my father was going to get the money for whatever I needed. That wasn’t my job! It was my dad’s job to figure out where the money would come from. It was my job as a kid to simply ask.
It’s not your job to figure out how God’s going to provide. It’s your job to ask.
The Bible says in James 4:2, “You do not have because you do not ask God” (NIV).
Worry less, and ask more. Instead of worrying, pray about everything.
Romans 8:32 says, “Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?” (NLT).
If God has solved your biggest problem, everything else is small by comparison. If God loved you enough to send Jesus to die for your sins, don’t you think he loves you enough to help you with your finances? Don’t you think he loves you enough to help you with your health? With your relationships? With career decisions? With closing a deal? With your deadline?
There’s no area of your life that doesn’t interest God. He already knows what you need, but he still wants you to ask him for it. Instead of worrying, pray about everything.
Talk It Over
What keeps you from asking God for the things that you need?
If God already knows all your needs, why do you think God wants you to ask him to meet those needs?
How does a recently answered prayer encourage you to keep praying about other needs in your life?
