The Law of Receiving
"For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." - (Luke 11:10 KJV)
The news that a certain renowned witch doctor in our vicinity had surrendered his life to Jesus got to me. That man was known to be a master of magicians in those years. Honestly, I was joyful to hear such good tidings. By that time, I had just started my ministry as a pastor.
When I inquired about how he got born again, I heard that God used a certain group of believers who had been praying earnestly for his salvation. That report induced “jealousy” in me such that I complained to God about why He was not using me as well to save such caliber of people.
God’s response was a simple question “When did you ask for it?” I realized that I had never asked Him for this level of ministry.
You receive what you are asking for. What is it that you want from God? Do not shut your mouth; ask for it and it will be granted to you!
Dear Father, thank You for the opportunity to get whatever I want in prayer. I commit myself to speak, asking, and communing with You in prayer because that is the way I get what I want in the name of Jesus. Amen.
