Don’t Ask God For Things

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ
(Ephesians 1:3). 
The purpose of prayer isn’t for us to get God
to do something for us. In fact, did you know
your heavenly Father doesn’t want you asking for
things? Someone who finds this surprising could be
wondering, But Jesus said, “Ask and it shall be given
you” (Matthew 7:7, Luke 11:9).
Yes, He did say that, but that was before the
emergence of the new creation. “Ask and it shall be
given you” was His teaching on faith and confidence in
the Lord before His vicarious death, burial, resurrection
and subsequent ascension to the Father to inherit all
things in our behalf. Now, He’s made us joint-heirs
with Him (Romans 8:17). The Bible says, “…his divine
power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto
life and godliness…” (2 Peter 1:3).
Having discovered these truths, what would you
really want to ask God for? We read in our opening
verse that you’ve been blessed with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Stop
asking God for things in prayer. Use the power and
privilege of prayer for higher purposes, like fellowship

Prayer
Dear Father, I thank you for
supplying everything I need to
live triumphantly for your glory
and fulfil my destiny in you!
I refuse to fret or struggle for
anything, for you’ve brought
me into the place of rest and
superabundance, where all my
needs are met, in Jesus’ Name.
Amen.
with the Father. You own the world. All things are
yours (1 Corinthians 3:21), because you’re the seed
of Abraham.
God already knew everything you’d ever need,
and before you came on the scene, He made them
available to you. He’s blessed you with all things
already. There’s nothing today you’ll like to have that
you don’t already have. “Yes, Pastor Chris, I know the
Bible says all things are mine, but the reason I’m not
enjoying them is because I really don’t have faith.”
No; you do have faith if you’re born again. You
only need to act on the Word. The Bible says, “…
God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith”
(Romans 12:3). The same measure of faith was given
to every one of us when we received the Gospel of
Christ. Moreover, that measure of faith you received at
the New Birth is enough to move mountains (Matthew
17:20). Use what you have. Exercise your faith.
