What are we asking for?

“When the containers were full, she said to her son, Bring me another container; but he answered, There isn’t another container. Then the oil stopped flowing.”
2 Kings 4:6 CJB

Two thoughts here, does God stop giving or does God only give us as much as we need? It could be both, depending on our heart or even our situation!

“I am Adonai your God, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. Open your mouth, and I will fill it.”
Psalm 81:10 CJB

The question is, are we empty vessels willing to be filled by the LORD? Or are we filled with pride and self reliance? We need to be empty of self and open to the LORD!

“Moreover, my God will fill every need of yours according to His glorious wealth, in union with Messiah Yeshua.”
Philippians 4:19 CJB

So the other thought here is the LORD gives us just what we need, because that’s all we need! The LORD, I believe, gives freely of every spiritual desire. We often confuse spiritual with material.

“For I, Adonai, your God, say to you, as I hold your right hand, Have no fear; I will help you.”
Isaiah 41:13 CJB

Today, let’s be honest about what we need versus what we want, then call upon the LORD and watch what He does!
Have a blessed day!
