Ask and you will receive…

Ask and you will receive…

Everywhere I turn I hear the same message today, “You can have anything if you put your mind to it”.

Really?

What a bunch of hocus pocus.  Sure, humans are very powerful and we can do amazing things… there is no doubt about that.  But, have you ever stopped and considered that you cannot even control your heart beat?

Yet, the world would have you to believe that even though you are totally dependent on something outside yourself for every beat of your heart, for every breath you take, you are still in control of your destiny.  You can get whatever you want.

Ever heard of the movie, “The Secret”?

People have bought into the lie.

The truth is that God controls all things.  He is the giver of life, He is the giver of blessings, He is the true giver.

So, you have two options:

1. Go the rest of your life living as though you are god.  Good luck.  Tell me how that turns out.

2. Trust in the Living God who has created all things.

Here’s my “Secret”.

“Ask and you will receive”.

Every desire of my heart that I’ve asked my Father for, He has given.  He has never withheld any good thing from me.

I can’t imagine someone living by their own strength, their own power, their own intellect.

I put my trust in the living God.

Who do you trust?  Yourself or God?
