You get what you ask for, and what you have faith for!

You get what you ask for, and what you have faith for!

The Lord is trying to be as good to us as possible!--He will give you whatever you want that's good for you, because He loves you. The Bible promises, "No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly!" (Psa.84:11)

But sometimes, the Bible tells us, we have not because we ask not. (Jam.4:2)--So if you really need something, pray it in!--Pray for it! Just be careful what you ask the Lord to do, because He'll often take you literally! The Lord will take you exactly at your word and your faith!

The true story is told of a certain preacher who prayed, "Lord, give me a car, I need a car, I'm desperate for a car, Lord--any old car!" And that's exactly what he got, exactly what he asked for--a real clunker! He said, "Next time I prayed for a good car, and I got it!" God is very definite, so be definite with Him! He says, "Command ye Me!" (Isa.45:11) He'll give you what you ask for, and certainly what you have the faith for! That's the way the Lord blesses if you trust Him, if you please Him, if you follow Him, if you obey Him.

God will give you what you have faith for, and you should have faith for what you need. If the need is there, the answer must be there too, so just look around and pray it in!
