YOU HAVE NOT BECAUSE YOU ASK NOT

I remember my kids when they were little. They were always asking me about something. It wasn’t always big things, but they would ask. Sometimes it was questions. I worked for a company that sold a product called “Childcraft, the How and Why Library.” It helped me answer those difficult questions like “why is the sky blue.” It is in our nature to want to “know things and ask for things.” 

God does not want us “in the dark” about Him or our lives. In James 1:5 it says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”  God wants us to be in the know. Verse 6 tells us we are to ask in faith, expecting to receive. The problem comes when we doubt that God will answer. We teeter totter back and forth. This is called being double-minded. Verse 8 says “a double-minded man is unstable in ALL his ways.”  All? Yes, it says all. We have to ask and expect to receive when we ask.

I remember when I was new in the things of God and asking for Him to supply my needs. I would ask for a parking place, and it would be there. I would ask for many things, and the supply would come. Someone told me God was too busy to answer the “little prayer” needs that I had, but I decided if I would give my own children what they asked for because they trusted me, that I could trust God to meet my needs both big and little also. He has never let me down. It may not have been the way I expected, but His plan for me has always been good.

In James 4 it tells us where wars and fightings come from.  Lust.  It says in verse 2-3 “ Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume if upon your lusts. ”  God will not give to a lustful heart. He knows it is not good for you. The kind of asking I am speaking of is asking God to meet your needs, and the needs of your loved ones, not lustful asking. 

In Matthew 7:7 it says, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened .”  V. 11 says “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him.
 
The motives behind our asking will determine the answer. There will always be an answer, yes, no, or not now. God wants the best for his children, just like we as natural parents do. He is the King of the Universe and wants to give his children gifts. If you are asking and not receiving, there are two reasons why you aren’t yet receiving. Firstly, it may be a lustful desire that God knows wouldn’t be good for you. (You wouldn’t give a four-year old a motorcycle) The second reason is timing. It might not be the right time, but if you have peace when you ask, wait in expectancy for it to happen. Remember, Joseph had a dream at 17 about his sheaves, and it took 27 years for it to come to pass. David was anointed three times before he became King of Israel. Paul was Saul before he became the powerful man that changed lives through Asia minor.

Ask, and expect God to come through. Don’t give up.

IS TONGUES FOR EVERYONE?
 
It is obvious that not all Christians today speak in tongues. Not even all believers in Pentecostal or charismatic congregations speak with other tongues. There can be various reasons for that. I Corinthians 14:5, “I would that ye ALL speak with tongues…”
 
The most common reason has to do with teaching or the lack of teaching. Some churches and pastors teach that it is not for today. Some claim it was only for the early church of the apostles. They also say that the gifts of the Spirit (I Cor. 12:4-11) were only for that time and those gifts have permanently ceased. This teaching is false.
 
Some pastors and teachers take a “middle ground.” They neither deny it nor affirm it. This means they do not teach you about it either way. They are not going to seek it or ask God for it if they know nothing about it.
 
Then, there are the believers who know about it but simply think it is not for them. They will get what they think: nothing.
 
There are others who know about it and would desire to have the Holy Ghost infilling, but for some reason they have been unable to receive it. There may be various reasons for that. Be assured, however, that God desires that every believer receives it, not just certain ones.
 
One of the biggest hindrances is a person’s tendency to keep control of their own tongue. They seem unable to “let go” and allow sounds and syllables that sound like “nonsense” to be spoken in their mouth. Yet it is this very submission that the Holy Ghost needs in order to “fill you up” with Himself and His anointing of power in your temple (body). It is human nature to “be in control” of yourself. The Holy Spirit needs that control.
 
Sometimes the hindrance may be from instructions of people “helping” you who tell you to do this or that in order to receive. (raise your hands, or repeat thank you Jesus, or other such instruction). I see this as a form of manipulation. Their intentions are good, but they might be hindering you in other ways.
 
I Corinthians 12:31 says “but covet earnestly the best gifts.”  God has a purpose for those who are “filled with (baptized in) the Holy Ghost.” He wants to use you in some powerful ways here on earth for the betterment of the kingdom of heaven and the church body. Tomorrow we will look at some of those powerful ways. We will investigate the “gifts of the Spirit” that are listed in I Corinthians 12:4-11.

HELEN SANDERS - A PROPHETIC WORD
September 9, 2019
Prophetic word as given to Helen Sanders

Rise up, rise up saith the lord, for I would say to you that your days of mourning are over. Take off the sackcloth and put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. I have gone before you to make a way that no one else can make. I am opening doors that no man can shut. I have shut doors that no man can open. I would say that you have slain the calves on my altar, and now it is time to go full speed forward with the anointing that I have placed on you for this hour. For surely saith the Lord, your days of mourning are over. You have been raised up out of the muck and miry clay and I have set you upon a solid rock. You shall see signs and wonders follow you for I am with you saith the Lord. Look not to man for your supply for I alone am your supply. Look not to man for your strength and joy for I alone am your strength and joy. I have formed you in your mother’s womb for such a time as this, and you have been birthed for this hour. For I will take you to a new level of anointing and you shall surely say look what the Lord has done. Do not look upon men to receive any praise for the praise only comes from me. You and you alone will know that it is I saith the Lord, for even though many have given you a word, they were not all of me saith the Lord, for I am the one speaking to you now. I am the one that has quieted your spirit, and have placed within you the desires of your heart. I am about to bring you across the red sea into a promised land which is full of milk and honey. You shall say my Lord, look what the Lord has done, and I shall say yes my child, it is me because of your faithfulness to follow. There will be giants in this new place, but I would say as surely as I said to Joshua, fear not, for I am with you. Be strong in me my child and the power of my strength. Lean not unto your own understanding, for I am doing a new and mighty thing that will require you to sit at my feet and listen as never before. You shall bring in a harvest that you have never seen as you go forth in my power and my anointing. Do not listen to the coercive words of the enemy for they would distract you and get you off track. Do not listen to the honey dripping from false prophets’ lips for they would distract you and get you off track. Listen only to me and you will be blessed my child. So now rise up, shake off the ashes and sackcloth and go forth in my strength saith the Lord.
