We can and should
1. Ask Anything
Matt 7:7 Ê
Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for
If you need wisdom you want to know what God wants you to do ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. 6¡†But when you ask him, be sure that you really expect him to answer
On the day the LORD gave the Israelites victory over the Amorites, Joshua prayed to the LORD in front of all the people of Israel. He said,
Let the sun stand still over Gibeon,
and the moon over the valley of Aijalon.
Don’t limit the hand of God, and what he desires to do for you!
2. Ask Anytime
Psalm 121:4 He never sleeps
The word of God promises that he will never be apart from us.
Judges 15:15 Samson
3. Ask from Anywhere
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. 39¡†Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Does not matter to God!
