ask God for more

Today's thought is short but big.  Answer this: what have you asked God for lately?

Henry Blackaby said in his book Experiencing God that the reason people are not seeing God work is because they are not attempting things that only God can do.  That makes sense to me; how about you?

I found myself sitting in a meeting this morning that was bigger than I expected.  Only 4 people in the room, but the outcome make very well be something we have prayed for.  Not just what we prayed for but more.  Hearing others share what is on their hearts also has and continues to full my vision and the dreams that God has put in me.  It is awesome to say the least.

Sitting at that table I again asked God to fill our desire of a homeless shelter in our area.  I asked God to do more than that.  Simply put: we asked God to give people stories of life change as we allow God to work through us.

What you asking God for?

Wisdom, discernment or direction ....

James 1:5 (NLT) --- If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.

Doors to be open, people to be healed, lives to be changed ...

Luke 11:10 (NLT) --- For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

Stuff bigger than you can think of ...
 
1 Chronicles 4:10 (NLT) --- Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!" And God granted him what he requested.

Remember this: God is bigger than you and than anything you come up against.  Remember this: God can do more than you can dream up on your own.  We need God's dream and we need to trust God.  Ask him to do more and to show Himself in big ways.  I'm ready.  Are you?

Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) --- Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
