He Who Asks, Receives

This is my encouragement for the day. Whatever you need is, go to the Lord in prayer and ASK of him. If your heart is right and you are not asking for selfish purposes, be bold.

Listen to Jesus’ brother James:

You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. James 4:2,3

Let Jesus’ words spoken to his disciples when they asked him to teach them to pray encourage you to pray boldly.

When my girls where small, maybe I would give one of them something when she asked. The other would complain and ask why she hadn’t received anything. “You didn’t ask!” I would answer. It’s probably the same thing with our Heavenly Father.

If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! Matthew 7:11

Luke goes a step further in his account than Matthew. The Father will give THE HOLY SPIRIT to those who ask him! Check it out for yourself. Open your Bible and read Luke 11. It’s amazing.

Have a great day! ASK, SEEK & KNOCK!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
