“Ask and it shall be given to you; Seek and you will find; Knock and the door shall be open unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)
God answers prayers. It’s true. Sometimes the answers are not what we had hoped for, but no prayer goes unanswered. Sometimes we ask for things that are not God’s will for our lives. I have found, though, that the one thing we can ask for that He will always give us, is more of Him. When we sincerely ask Him to reveal who He is and who we are in Him, He does it.
That’s where I’ve been this past week. It all started with the church service last Sunday and something Brenda said to me after she had prayed with me. She asked me if I believed that I deserved to have God heal my eyes. I had to be honest and say, “No.” Do I believe that God heals? Sure. Do I think He heals other people? Absolutely. Do I believe that I deserve it? No. How could I deserve it? And then Brenda says, “You’re His baby girl. He WANTS you to see!” Oh boy. Insert awkward feeling here. It was at this moment that I realized, somewhat ashamedly, that my relationship with God was lacking. Right then I started praying for God to show me who He was and who I am to Him, and I continued to pray that throughout this past week. He has answered it over and over again.
If you want to know who you are in God, just ask Him. He’ll be happy to show you how much He loves you, too!
