Ask, and it shall be given to you!
" Ask, and it shall be given to you! " Matthew 7:7
Ask! WHOM? The Giver of every good and perfect gift—the Father of mercies, and the God of all grace.
Ask! WHAT? First and chiefly, for spiritual blessings—and then for such temporal favors as you feel you need. Ask . . .
for the forgiveness of sins,
for renewing and sanctifying grace,
for the Holy Spirit,
for an enlightened understanding,
for heavenly affections,
for a submissive will, and
for an obedient heart.
Ask especially for a full discovery of the glorious person , the perfect work , and immeasurable love of Christ—and for a constant trust in Him.
Ask! HOW? In dependence on the aid and teaching of the Holy Spirit. We know not of ourselves how to pray, or what to ask for—but He is ever ready to help our infirmities.
Ask in the name of Jesus. Feeling your sinfulness and unworthiness —plead His perfect righteousness and infinite worthiness.
Ask in faith. "He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
Ask with the assurance that He is able and willing to bless you, and that He will fulfill the exceeding great and precious promises He has made to us in Christ Jesus. "Ask, and it shall be given to you!"
