I always get the two confused. The bible says you have not because you ask not. The ying yang twins say a closed mouth don’t get fed. At any rate they are both right.
You can NOT have what you don’t ask for.
It starts with ASKING GOD in prayer. Don’t ask him like you have all the plans and specifics either. Ask in a way that allows him the opportunity to grant your prayer in the way in which he sees fit.
Then remember the bible says FAITH without WORKS is dead. So that means you have to do some asking here on earth too!
- You want a raise at work – ASK your boss. You don’t know the answer until you ask. You may not get the raise NOW but your boss may tell you what you NEED to do to get one later. If they don’t automatically tell you ASK them what do you need to do. (are you starting to see a pattern here)
- Many entrepreneurs spend a great deal of time PRESENTING to clients and then FAIL to ask for the business. If you can’t open your mouth and ask people to do business with you, how do you expect them to know you even WANT their business.
- ASK your spouse for what you want in a relationship. Unless he is physic he does not automatically know and men are wired different than women. Don’t blame him for not getting the gift you want for your birthday if you have not ASK!
The bottom line is that YOUR LIFE, YOUR GOALS, YOUR DREAMS and YOUR HAPPINESS should be important enough to you for you to ask! What is the Worst that can happen? They say no? And you keep living!
