Jesus told his disciples that whatever they asked the father for in his name, that it would be given to them. Jesus stated that until that time, they had not asked for anything. He encouraged them to ask and receive so that their joy may be full. (John 14:23-24).
God desires that we prosper and be in good health and he will not hold back any good thing from us who walk in righteousness. He promises to supply all our needs according to his riches in glory (Philippians 4:19). Jame’s letter to the church warns that they do not have because they do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions (James 4:2-3).
As long as our desires line up with the will of God, then our request will be granted. If our desires are for good things so that we can help others and help to advance the kingdom of God, then we know that God will grant our requests. As long as our desires are not purely to fulfill our selfish ambitions of greed and pride, God will hear our prayers.
Tell God your request so that he can supply your needs. He wants us to have joy and peace and he does not want us to live with anxiety and fear. God is waiting for you to ask. Pray and tell God what you need and then wait for the answer.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7).
I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.
Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.
I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.
I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
