You Didn’t Ask

Today while I was praying, I asked God for clarity on a situation that was bothering me. I knew someone was in need and I didn’t help him because I didn’t feel like dealing with that spirit of drama. I asked the Lord to reveal an answer. Do I help or not? And it was revealed unto me while I prayed: he didn’t ask you for help. I recalled the previous text messages, and that was right. He asked if I knew anyone that could help him. But he didn’t ask me directly. I heard the Holy Spirit whisper in my ear, “he didn’t ask, he didn’t ask, he didn’t ask…”

Because of the repetitiveness, I had to look at this in the spiritual. Do we ask Jesus directly for help? OR do we always text somebody, make a post on social media and ask others to “pray for me?” Why not ask God directly and make your requests known to Him yourself? The Holy Spirit is saying: if you need something, ask. Don’t send Tommy, Susan or Mike to ask, nor beat around the bush- just ask! If you can text: Pray for me…, you can utter, Help me Jesus with…

When we don’t ask directly there are reasons for it. We either don’t believe God will supply that specific need, so why bother. Or the egoic mind wants to feed its victim mentality. Or you really don’t need the help, healing or deliverance at all. Human nature will approach needs like this- they convey their problems but won’t ask directly for help. In their minds they already made their requests known by opening up. They rather spill their life story and complain than ask for help. And if you don’t respond the way they want, they get frustrated. And so, the victim mentality continues. To me, this is what the egoic mind looks like.

If I knew there is a man not far from me at all, healing and delivering people from every sickness and disease, I would run fast to him and say I need healing from this….I need deliverance from this….I need help with this….I mean really people, come on. There’s no need to suffer the way most of you are. Just ask! Just make sure after you make your specific need known unto God you say, “In Jesus name.” That’s like applying the postage stamp to a piece of mail. For that request to be delivered, we must acknowledge the healing power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Faith Friday

Faith- “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and CERTAIN of what we do not see.”- Hebrews 11:1

Faith is the link to our Creator, God Almighty. To have access in the spiritual realm requires total faith in God the Father, Jesus, the son of God, and the Holy Spirit.

Faith and doubt don’t coincide with one another. Worry doesn’t exist in the realm of faith. But faith and trust live together. In other words, you can’t doubt what you hope for.

When Jesus of Nazareth healed anyone, there was only one requirement, one prerequisite, one necessity- FAITH! Not money, gold nor silver, not social status or class, but FAITH! So, if we believe with total certainty the promises of God, as it’s written in His word. And trust that whatsoever you need from God, He shall deliver according to His will.

You may ask, “What is His will? What are these promises you mentioned?” God’s will and promises (along with clear ‘how to’ instructions) are located in the bible.

It’s your choice to decide, to have faith or not. And God said, He can work with a mustard seed of faith (paraphrasing). There’s NEVER loss in faith. There’s ALWAYS gain.

Faith in the mature believer should be used to build up the church and community. I learned that having faith for others, builds up my faith as well. Faith indeed, grows!

I petition you to increase your faith today by hoping with certainty, the healing and deliverance for someone else in need. See that person completely restored, walking in victory. God will get the glory!
