DO NOT BE AT FAULT

Dearly Beloved, DO NOT BE AT FAULT "You want something but don't get it…. You do not have, because you do not ask God" (James 4:2 NIV). My children used to get sets of biscuits every morning as they go to school for refreshment apart from the food they take for their breakfast. My wife and I forgot to give them the biscuits one day, and none of them remembered to remind us as they normally do. When they came back from the school, the elder one, my son, accused us their parents for not giving them biscuits that day. My response was, "Did you ask for them?" He could not defend himself because he knew that he also shared in the fault of not remembering about the usual sets of biscuits that day. He was the first to remind us the following day about the biscuits as they were about to set out for school. There is a spiritual lesson in this event. Our heavenly Father has many blessings and provisions in store for us. He has been given us these blessings and He will continue to give us. While He is not a forgetful Father like any earthly father, He wants us, however, to ask Him what we want. Jesus Christ said, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Matthew 7:7-11 NIV). Are you in need of any good thing? Come boldly to the throne of grace and ask (Hebrew 4:16). John said, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of Him" (1 John 5:14-15 NIV). Do not be at fault in not asking. Hear Jesus Christ again, "Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete" (John 16:24 NIV). In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).
