IF YOU DON’T ASK YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE
by Sam Sweg
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
You cannot receive The Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord, Savior and Healer unless you ask and receive Him as your Lord! He Paid the Price with His Divine Blood for all of your needs. You will never receive the Promises of God without asking (prayer) The Lord Jesus Christ with an expectancy to receive!. Doubt and unbelief will never ask or have an expectancy to receive anything from The Lord.
I asked The Lord Jesus Christ when He visited me. Why do we have to pray when you know every hair on our head and all of our needs? He said when you ask in Faith you are Glorifying and Acknowledging The Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and Provider! You are declaring before all of Heaven and Earth that Jesus is your Lord and Source. When you ask in Faith according to His Word you will receive your answer. The Lord Rewards those who diligently seek Him.
The Children of Israel were in the desert for 40 years with God feeding them and taking care of all their needs. They never had any lack. They did not trust God Almighty’s Promises and they never crossed over and entered or received the Promise Land because of unbelief and not trusting God. As a New Testament Born Again Believer our Covenant with The Lord Jesus Christ is to Live in Faith through The Word of God. His Promise Land for us is to live in Faith in The Word of God!
Romans 1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.
Many Christians have been waiting for years to receive their needs and The Baptism of Holy Spirit and they are still waiting. If you don’t ask you will not receive. Many Christians will never ask but will say if it is God’s Will it will happen and if it is not His Will it will not happen. Many needs are never answered by not asking in The Name of Jesus andFaith in God’s Word!
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
1John 5:14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
God’s Will is His Living Word. If what you need is in The Word of God then it is His Will for you to receive His Promises by asking with a full expectancy that Gives Jesus all The Glory.
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Psalm 34:17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles.
Matthew 18:19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
Matthew 21:22 “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
John 14:13 “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 16:24 “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
