God Wants To Give Us Good Things

diana-simumpande-197805
JESUS TOLD US TO ASK
We are authorized to ask God for the things we need.
In Matthew 7:7, Jesus instructs us to ASK.
Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
This is followed by a great promise.
Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
GOD WANTS TO GIVE US GOOD THINGS
Matthew 7:9-11 “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
God wants to give us good gifts. God does not have bad in store for us. He wants to bless us like a father would bless his own children. He God wants to be good to us. But it is important to ask Him.

Asking God For Help

diana-simumpande-197805
It is great to know that we can bring our requests to God. It is a wonderful thought that we can approach God. That’s what we want to do today. To trust together with you, for that which you are trusting God for. I believe God listens and hears our prayers. He wants to be a Father to us and help us. We can ask God for help, in any area. Let’s trust God today.
GOD KNOWS WHAT YOU NEED
This is a reassuring fact. God is in the know. He is NOT ignorant of our needs and situations. Jesus went through hard times and He understands what you may be going through.
Matthew 6:8 Your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
Before we ask God for something, He already knows we have need of it. That’s just like a father!

Answered Prayer

ANSWERED PRAYER
This is one of God’s plans for us. That we would experience the reality of answers to our prayers.
Jeremiah 29:12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.
Part of God’s plan is that we would have a knowledge that He listens to us when we pray. This is a great thought! Part of God’s plan for us is answered prayer.
FINDING GOD
This is another plan that God has for us. That we would ‘FIND’ Him and know Him!
Jeremiah 29:13 You will find Me when you seek Me, if you look for Me in earnest.
I love the phrase – ‘You WILL find Me’. We need to SEEK Him and LOOK for Him in earnest. And the promise is that if we do this we WILL find Him! God wants to be a reality in our lives.
YOU ARE GOING TO BE ALRIGHT
If you have entrusted your life to God, then you can have confidence. If you are endeavoring to seek Him and look for Him you can feel secure! God has plans for your life that only He knows. God is still in control regardless of how the situation may appear. He loves each one of us! And has good plans for us! Start praising the Lord for what He has in store and allow expectation to rise within you knowing that God has got a plan and you are going to be alright

You Are Going To Be Alright!

brooke-cagle-52215-unsplash.jpg
It is great to know that we can have confidence in God.
To know that we can trust Him. To know that He is working in our lives. Things are not out of control, God has everything in hand. There is an old song: ‘He’s got the whole world in His hand’. It goes on: ‘He’s got you and me brother/sister in His hand’. Because of this we can know that we are going to be alright.
GOD HAS A PLAN
For each of us God has a plan. You are not exempted or excluded.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.
Just look at the following:
There is a plan and God has a plan for you. God knows the plan that He has for you. It is good to know that God knows the blueprint for our lives. Sometimes it feels like we are just tossed around by circumstances. In the middle of all this it is great to know that we can have the knowledge that God knows what is going on for each of us! I love the phrase: ‘Declares (says) the LORD’ (Jeremiah 29:11 – NIV) This is confidence, knowing that God has the master plan.

God Is Interested In Each One Of Us

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg
GOD IS INTERESTED IN EACH OF US
We don’t approach God to make Him aware of our situation. We don’t go to God so that He can see our need. He already knows. We go to God because we love and we need Him. God knows that we need Him. But sometimes we don’t realize how much we need Him When we realize this we can run to Him.
Psalm 139:17-18 How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!
AGAIN AND AGAIN
2 Corinthians 1:9-10 We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us, for he can even raise the dead. And he did help us and saved us from a terrible death; yes, and we expect him to do it again and again.
You may feel that things are beyond your control. It may even feel like you are dying. You may feel powerless and helpless. These are not bad emotions. They are good in that they make us realize just how much we need God. The joy of this scripture is that ‘He did help us and saved us.’ That is what God wants to do. And we can expect Him to do just that again and again. This can happen as we come to Him again and again.

He Is Waiting

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg
WE CAN APPROACH GOD
We can approach God again and again. God is open and receptive to our approaches. We do not need to fear. We can approach God with anything that is on our hearts and He is always ready and willing to listen and hear. Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive his mercy and to find grace to help us in our times of need. The key here is to go to the Lord and to stay there. Then we can receive His mercy and His grace.
HE IS WAITING
Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love; he will conquer you to bless you, just as he said. For the Lord is
faithful to his promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them.
(Isaiah 30:18)
The thought that God is waiting for me to come to Him is a source of great joy and great delight.
Look at God’s motivation for waiting for us, so that He can show us His love. I want to experience more of His love. How about you? Keep on going to God; take all your issues and concerns to Him because He is waiting. Waiting to be good to each one of us. Yes, He wants to be good to you.

Again and Again

julian-schropel-1148238-unsplash.jpg
We can go to the Lord with everything. But what is even more of a delight is that we can keep on going to Him. We will not exhaust Him. We will not run out of opportunities to go to the Lord and call on Him. He is always waiting, always ready and always willing to receive us. Again and again we can go to the Lord. The problem comes when we begin to think that we can’t go to Him. But the truth is that the door is always open.
NEW MERCY FROM GOD EVERY MORNING
With each new day, God has something new for each of us. It is like we have fresh bread available to us each day.
There is not one day that we have to eat what God did yesterday. With God, each day is like starting all over again.
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
The key word here is ‘NEW’. New mercy and new compassion every morning. When you got up this morning there was new mercy and compassion for you.
When you get tomorrow morning there will be more of His new compassion and mercy for you.

Praising God With All Out Hearts

tyler-nix-626687-unsplash
WHAT IS IN OUR HEARTS IS EASY TO SEE
Luke 6:45 ‘The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil that is stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.’
What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of what is in our hearts. If I really love God, then you will hear about it. It will emerge from the way I speak. What is stored up in your heart, today?
Luke 12:34 ‘Where your treasure is there will your heart be also.’
If we are going to love God we need pure hearts.
PRAISING GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS
This is something else we must do with all our hearts.
Psalm 9:1 ‘I will praise you, O Lord, with all me heart.’
Praise is a very important part of our lives.
Psalm 111:1 ‘I will extol the Lord with all my heart.’
Definition of extol: To praise highly or to glorify. If you are battling in some area, then it is time to start praising God. Praise is one of the tools to overcoming. We are called to praise God with all our hearts

God Is Interested

THE STORY OF PETER
The Bible tells us a story about how Peter the Apostle walked on the water to Jesus. It is a wonderful story with many lessons but it also shows us God’s character. The story happens as some of the followers of Jesus are traveling in a boat.
Matthew 14:25-31 About four o’clock in the morning Jesus came to them, walking on the water! They screamed in terror, for they thought he was a ghost. But Jesus immediately spoke to them, reassuring them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. Then Peter called to him: “Sir, if it is really you, tell me to come over to you, walking on the water.” “All right,” the Lord said, “come along!” So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Instantly Jesus reached out his hand and rescued him.
I love the closing sentence: ‘Instantly Jesus reached out his hand and rescued him.’ Perhaps today you may feel like you are sinking. God is ready and willing to reach down to us and help us!
GOD IS INTERESTED
The truth of that matter is that God is interested in your life. God is interested in each person. God is interested in the powerful and rich. God is interested in the average and everyday people. So no matter what category you may fall into God is interested in you. Because of this God wants to love, care and give.
Jeremiah 31:3 I have loved you, O my people, with an everlasting love; with loving-kindness I have drawn you to me.
You are not reading this by mistake. This is a divine moment because God is reaching down to you and He wants to make His love for you a reality. Just take a moment and respond. You have nothing to fear, God knows everything!

God Came Down To Us

youssef-naddam-1144792-unsplash.jpg
GOD CAME DOWN TO US
Right from the start God came down to mankind. We see the greatest example of this when Jesus came to the earth to reach humanity.
John 3:16-17 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.
There is a song we sing with the following words: ‘You came from heaven to earth, to show the way’. Jesus is an example of how God wants to reach down to us and meet us at our level with a plan to change our lives and situations. Let Him into your heart and life today.
BENDING DOWN
Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord because he hears my prayers and answers them. Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I breathe!
I love the picture this scripture paints. I just see how God wants to make an effort to meet us at our level and come through for us. I have a little daughter and oftentimes I have to bend down and listen to her little stories. This usually happens when I get home from a long day and I am usually tired. As I bend down to listen to her it is a deliberate action on my part to give her time and to listen. I am there for her. It is the same with God. He is not too busy. He wants to make time for you and I.
