What did Jesus mean when He said, “Ask and you shall receive”?

Yesterday I was thinking about one of my needs that’s not happening for me. I felt disappointed. I wonder today how many people have been disappointed simply because they didn’t pray and ask God for the big things in their hearts. You might say, “well, Ray, God is God. If He wants to bless me, He will bless me.” But no, it says in James 4:2, “you have not because you ask not.” If you’re not asking big, you are shortchanging yourself.

You will never reach the fullness of your potential if you only pray small prayers. I’m not talking about just making a wish list and praying every whim. I’m talking about asking God for what He has already promised you. The scripture says, “when you walk in God’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.”

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 didn’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!

“”¦you do not have because you do not ask.”

(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 my thinking from small to spiritually massive, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

Ask and receive will be real when the world lets go of money, giving it all at one time, to whoever is on the bills and coins. A special package needs to be sent to the house, and bank, to put said cash, and coins to the grave site of the images on the bills and coins. It will be destroyed there. The Lincoln memorial will have a lot of pennies there. Money makes god’s image to say no, to god’s image. People are only saying yes to mammon. Ask and receive is not knelling down, hoping for somthing to appear out of nowhere. Ask and receive is not manipulating a person to get you somthing, in a money run world. Christmas is not ask and receive. Ask and receive will become real, when money is no longer used. A persons ability to communicate will be used. God’s mind that made free, talking through a person. That is life eternal. To not have that is death eternal. The church lead people astray on everything. People who give money think they are caring about whatever. People who receive it think the giver is caring about them. Both are fooled. Money, while it is being used, is the only thing people are caring about. That is why people are pierced with many sorrows, when they don’t have money. The giver will be pierced with sorrow, had they give to much. The church made money to be our savior. People are sorrowful, when the person does not have it. The church is evil.

People who receive it think the giver is caring about them. Both are fooled. People who buy, think the store owner is caring about the person who comes into their store. The store owner does not care about god’s image. They care about a thing that comes from nothing. The obviousness of money being nothing will become clear when God’s gifts are gone. The desire for money is depleting God’s free gifts, at a rapid rate. It is has been calculated that those gifts will be used up by 2050. Money is the only thing people are caring about.
