“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” Luke 11:9, NKJV.
When was the last time to you went to God without shame and asked Him to move you beyond what’s holding you back? There is no shame. There is an openness and confidence that God wants you have in Him. Realize you have a real need and you must ask Him to give it to you.
This is like the friend in (See Luke 11:5-8) that went to his friend at a midnight hour, asking him to help meet their need. Because of their shamelessness, their friend who does have a relationship with them, who does truly care for them, gets up and gives what they asked for. If men would do that for a friend, how much more a perfect God when you seriously ask Him to get you beyond what’s holding you back from doing His will and experiencing everything He has for you.
If it has been years and you know you it’s still there, if you know there are things He is calling you to do, but you still doubt who you are in Christ, if you know it is time step in faith and obey God, you need to go to your heavenly Father and ask. Ask Him to move you beyond unbelief and fear. Ask Him to remove the anger issues. Ask Him to help let go of the past regrets. Ask for Him to remove a spirit of laziness from your life. Ask Him to remove the masturbation, fornication, pornography, homosexuality, or any other stronghold that is holding you, even the very desire for it.
When He sees you ask, He will do it. He will give you the greatest thing He could to move beyond what is holding you back–Himself. Yes, more of His Spirit to operate in you to do what in your own strength you can’t do. The Father raised Jesus from the dead. Therefore He can surely with His mighty arm give you victory over it.
Prayer: Father, without shame, I ask You to get beyond what I know is holding me back. You know what it is and I lift it openly up to You right now. I come against the devil and I pray against any stronghold in my life in Jesus’ name. Give me more of You. Give me more of Your Spirit, more of Your strength, so I can be the man I am destined to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
