God Wants Us to Ask!
If we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him (1 John 5:15, NKJV).
During the days of Ezekiel, God poured out His heart and shared what He wanted to do for His beloved people. Then He revealed an astonishing fact: “I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them” (Eze. 36:37, kjv). God was waiting to be asked!
My mother has said that if there are any tears shed in heaven, they are going to be shed over all the answers to prayer for which no one ever bothered to ask! What blessing is God waiting to give you, but you haven’t asked Him for it?
Why does He wait for us to ask? Maybe He wants us to acknowledge our need of Him. Maybe it’s one way of getting our attention. Maybe it’s the only way we will know when the answer comes that it comes from Him, and we don’t credit ourselves or someone else for it.
