“And they lifted up their voices and said, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!’ So when He saw them, He said to them, ‘Go, show yourselves to the priests.’ And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed” Luke 17:13-14, NKJV.
When Jesus walked the earth, He would heal someone when they asked. Sometimes, He would ask them to do something, a step, an instruction, and when they did it, or even as they did it, they would find themselves receiving what they asked for.
The Father will do the same with you. There are times with your daily walk, when you ask for something from God, before you receive what you’ve asked for, you will receive an instruction. He will speak to your heart and tell you to do something. You now have your opportunity, your door to receive what you’ve asked for.
You may ask God to help your marriage, and in the heat of a moment, He will say forgive her. When you ask God to increase you financially, at the time your paycheck arrives, He will ask you to put some of it aside. You may ask God for some peace of mind, then the Father will ask you to read My word. When you ask Him for His will to be done in your life, He will reveal His will and the Holy Spirit will begin leading you into it.
When you ask for something from God, He may ask something of you. It is the very step to receive. He will open the door for you, but your obedience and faith is what will open the door for Him to powerfully move, so you can powerfully receive.
Prayer: Father, there is none like You! Thank You for speaking to me, and that You always hear me when I ask You for anything. Help me to have faith and do what You ask of me so I can receive. According to You word, I trust You will even do exceedingly and abundantly beyond what I can ask for or imagine! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
