Getting What You Want (3)

Post by Evangelista_GP on Tue Sep 13, 2016 12:10 pm

‘You do not have because you do not ask.’
James 4:2

The UCB Word for Today - 13 Sep 2016

Notice: 1) There are benefits you won’t receive unless you ask for them. Plus, ‘asking and receiving’ works wonders for your self-esteem. Imagine the joy these five women felt when their petition was granted. Obviously they were emotionally secure or they wouldn’t have tried it. So as a redeemed child of God, declare, ‘If God be for us, who can be against us?’ (Romans 8:31 KJV). 2) Timing is important. ‘A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences’ (Proverbs 27:12 NLT). The daughters of Zelophehad spoke up while they were still in the wilderness; the Promised Land hadn’t yet been conquered. There’s nothing like good planning. You can’t just sit around and assume others are thinking about your welfare. For example, after the raises are announced is not the time to petition your boss for an increase. Zelophehad’s daughters made life better for every other woman in Israel. So by speaking up and confronting the situation not only will you be blessed, others will too. 3) Strive for a win-win situation. The battle was not yet over. The daughters of Zelophehad had uncles who appealed the new ruling, pointing out that if these women married men outside their tribe then their land holdings would go to other tribes. So God made another ruling; to possess land you must only marry within your own tribe (see Numbers 36:5-11). And when it comes to marriage, spiritually speaking that principle still applies. ‘She is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord’ (1 Corinthians 7:39 NKJV). The same for men.

Luke 17:20-37, Ps 94-96

Wow! This is powerful " You don't have because you don't ask. " We better start to ask. God is willing to give. For example, God's promises are there, but will never become a reality if we don't reclaim them.
