19th May 2012 John 16:23-28
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
I have used the KJV translation this morning, I like the flow of it.
Ask for what you need and it will be given. Ask in love and it will come in love. It was true for the disciples and it's true today for us.
How often do you ask for help?
Do you ask believing it can happen?
That is all we need to do, ask in the full expectation that we will receive.
