Just Ask Him

I call to you, God, and you answer me. Listen to me now, and hear what I say. Psalm 17:6

Ah, the first crush “Does they like me?” we wondered to our friends. “Just ask them, “they answered.” You may never know if you don’t ask, they counseled. A note was written, folded, and passed. We wanted nervously for the reply. The whole thing was simple, but also scary.

If only answers to prayer came so simply or quickly. Should I take the job? Should I marry this man or woman? Try to have a baby now, or in a year? Check yes or no. God’s Word encourages us again and again to come to him with our questions, concerns, and deeper longings. He does promise a reply, though not necessarily in the form of a check in a box.

Are there things that your heart is aching for? Do you have concerns, fears, or hopes for this week, or this year? God is waiting expectantly for your prayers, and he will answer you. It may not be today, or even for a long time, but keep asking. Keep waiting for his reply. he hears you. What are you longing to know? Just ask God.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
