Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: April 5, 2022

“Ye as, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that may consume it upon your lust.” That is pretty deep. Listen closely, many of our prayers are not answered for our own protection. Would you give your child something you knew would hurt them? Our Father is all knowing, all seeing. He sees in realms we can’t see and He sees what is to come. There are things we want in the natural that will hurt us in the spiritual. There are even things we want in the flesh that will hurt us in the natural. God sees all of this and that is praying amiss, He won’t answer a prayer that is amiss. Then there are times that “yet ye have not, because ye ask not.” We don’t even open our mouths and ask our Father who desires to give us what we need in abundance of His riches! Oh what a state we are in. Too many times we are either praying amiss or not praying at all. He wants us to come to Him and come to Him daily, not just with our needs, but with everything! If you are taking everything to Him your heart posture is more likely going to be in a right place in what your asking because your desires start to become His desires as you spend more and more time in His presence. Whew, that’s it right there. It’s a heart issue. We need to get our hearts in the right place, then He will start training our minds to follow, but it starts with that daily meeting with your Father. It’s not something you can skip. Those conversations with your Poppa are vital to your peace, your heart posture, and making sure you don’t pray amiss. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts.” ~ James 4:2-3
