I wish I could go back just in the last few months and tell you how many times God has surprised me with something.
I will tell you one story... I didn't have a ton of money for Christmas gifts for my kids, but I had some. I was proud regardless of the amount because the year before, I did not have a dime. Anyway, out of the blue, I got a message from a friend asking if I'd like a skateboard. She's in Nashville, the skateboard was in Atlanta. Without even seeing the skateboard, I said I would take it. I knew one of my sons would love it. Her husband drove from Nashville, through Atlanta, picked up the skateboard and brought it to me at work. FOR NOTHING. I was totally floored. Who does stuff like that?
James 4 says in verse 1 through 3, "
Jesus said in Mark 11:24, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
Also, in John 16: 24, "Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete."
God is not a vending machine. We shouldn't expect to pray about something and God just give it to us. The keys here are, we need to ask in Jesus name, and if we don't ask, He can't answer. Your request is NOT to small or TOO large for Him. He is still in the miracle business. Once we do ask, we need to be prepared for God's answer. It might be NO. What are you waiting for? Ask Him!
