MORNINGTIME 2972
 
Ye lust, and have not: YE kill, and DESIRE TO HAVE, AND CANNOT OBTAIN: ye fight and war, yet YE HAVE NOT, BECAUSE YE ASK NOT. Ye ask, AND receive not, because YE ASK AMISS, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. James 4:2-3. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may BE PERFECT AND ENTIRE, WANTING NOTHING. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of GOD, that GIVETH to all men LIBERALLY, AND upbraideth not; and IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. James 1:4-6. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. And he said unto him, SON, thou art ever with me, and ALL THAT I HAVE IS THINE. Luke 15:29-31. There are two stories going on here. In the first, you ask for and don't get, because you ask amiss. In the second story, you want, but you never ask for, so you never receive. IT'S ALL YOURS, but you never asked for any of it. The Lord will Gladly give you everything you could ever want and ask for, if you will simply ask for those things He wants you to have. No, if you ask for what The Father doesn't want you to have, you won't get it, BECAUSE IT WILL HURT YOU, and the Lord is not in the Hurt You business. In the other story, the Father was Patiently Waiting for the son to ask for what he needed, but the son would never see his need, and ask for it. Believers, ask The Father to put in your Heart a Desire to ask for that which you truly need, AND HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU ALL DAY LONG. The Lord wants you to have all that you need, because He created a need in you to ask for that which He wants to give to you. You NEED Christ, ask for MORE of Him, and, Be Blessed.
