I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth, your possession. Psalms 2:7-8 NIV
At my Son’s, Jesus, baptism, I spilt the heavens for all to hear. “You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” As his Father, it was my joy to answer the request that He would ask of Me.
What limits you from approaching Me to “ask” that I may meet your needs? I have arranged for you to receive every good and perfect gift. I have promised to take care of your most basic needs. My stipulation is that you must ask of Me. My Son told you that up until now you have asked for nothing. When praying to Me ask in His name, Jesus, that your joy would be full.
I acknowledge the difficulty in approaching Me with your request. You may think, if I am busy running the universe, how can I have time for you? You may also have a hard time discerning what My voice sounds like. I am gentle but direct. When you believed in my Son, you were given spiritual ears to hear Me.
Your relationship with your earthly father may also be creating a hindrance to drawing close to Me and trusting My word. Perhaps your father was distant and unapproachable. He may have had a temper in which case you were unsure how he might respond to your request. For some, your father left you and you had no father as a child.
But I am not like your father. I sought you when you were unlovable to make you my own. I am firm and expect obedience, but I stay with you throughout the process. I will never leave you nor forsake you. I am in this relationship of ours for the long haul, eternity.
Ask Me to help, you were not created to do life all by yourself. Even in the garden, I provided the ripened fruit for Adam and Eve. After they sinned, they now had to work. But I bring the rain and the change of seasons that their work may be fruitful. Ask Me to be involved in your life and learn to trust in Me..
Whispers from your Father, God
