Yesterday I was thinking about one of my needs thatâ€™s not happening for me. I felt disappointed. I wonder today how many people have been disappointed simply because they didnâ€™t pray and ask God for the big things in their hearts. You might say, â€œwell, Ray, God is God. If He wants to bless me, He will bless me.â€ But no, it says in James 4:2, â€œyou have not because you ask not.â€ If youâ€™re not asking big, you are shortchanging yourself.
You will never reach the fullness of your potential if you only pray small prayers. Iâ€™m not talking about just making a wish list and praying every whim. Iâ€™m talking about asking God for what He has already promised you. The scripture says, â€œwhen you walk in Godâ€™s ways, you will lend and not borrow. With long life God will satisfy you. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.â€
Today, there are hundreds of promises that you have every right to pray and ask God to bring to pass; not only that, there are specific dreams and desires that God has placed in your heart. They didnâ€™t just randomly show up. The Creator of the universe put them in you. I dare you to ask, and ask big, and watch what God will do in your life!
â€œâ€¦you do not have because you do not ask.â€(James 4:2, NKJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I ask You to fulfil the promises and dreams You have placed in my heart. Father, I will be detailed and not limited in my asking of You for blessings. God, I believe that You are waiting and willing for me to ask big. God, I believe that You are able, and I believe that You are working things together for my good, as I put my hope, trust and belief in You, as I change my thinking from small to spiritually massive, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
