    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

Ask God for what you want!

    Ask God for what you want!

    'THE REASON YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT YOU WANT IS...YOU DON'T ASK GOD.' JAMES 4:2

    Imagine walking into your local Chinese takeaway and asking if your order is ready. 'When did you phone it in?' the server asks. 'Oh I didn't,' you reply, 'I just thought perhaps you'd have something with my name on it.' Sound ridiculous? No more so than expecting God to answer requests you haven't made. The book of James says, 'The reason you don't have what you want is...you don't ask God.'

    Does that mean He'll automatically give you everything you ask for? No. James adds, 'Even when you do ask you don't get it because...you want only what will give you pleasure? (James 4:3 TLB). Your motives need to be in tune with what God knows is best for you. John says, 'This is the confidence...we have in Him...if we ask anything...according to His will...He...hears (1John 5:14 AMP). Lamentations 3:25 says, 'The Lord is good to those who wait...expectantly for Him' (AMP).

    Expectant prayer demonstrates confidence in God's goodness. Instead of stressing out and taking matters into your own hands, when you say, 'Lord, I'm going to trust you with this, no matter what happens,' He'll honour your faith. Paul says, 'Pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks' (Philippians 4:6 NCV). Do you need a job? Help overcoming a problem? Do your friends or family need to become Christians? Need a deeper walk with God? Do you need physical or emotional healing? Jesus said, 'It gives your Father great happiness to give you the [benefits of his] Kingdom' (Luke 12:32 NLT).

    God wants to be good to you, so tell Him the 'desires of your heart' (Psalm 37:4 NKJV). Thank Him that the answer will come in His time!
