ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE
The good old Bible has this as one of the teachings of Jesus. During his time on earth Jesus taught many critical principles of life. It is however, disturbing to note that many people ignore these teachings much to their peril.
I have personally experienced the principle of asking and it has proven to be very effective in my life. I actually discovered that people perish because they are afraid to ask or feel so ashamed of disclosing their crisis or need. Imagine that you had a boil in a very sensitive part of your body and thus you cannot sit without experiencing excruciating pain, guilt and shame. However, you feel so ashamed to disclose this fact to others and you force yourself to sit and risk experiencing this pain. If on the other hand you disclose your condition, other people may end up offering you special treatment and cushions to make sure you are comfortable.
FEAR AND HUMAN ANGELS
Fear of asking has often resulted in people turning into thieves. They would rather take without asking and end up destroying relationships. I have discovered that we have human angels living among us, waiting to rescue us each time we ask. Have you ever noticed how some people just appear at the right time to provide for your needs?
ACT ON YOUR FAITH
In a way we ask God but we do not express our needs to others. But some of our needs require human intervention so our faith needs action. So many times I have prayed over a need and next moment when I just mention my needs to someone, even in passing, I have been surprised by their reaction. It’s as if the universe was just waiting for me to break the fear and shame for it to start pouring provisions on to my lap. I believe in miracles because I have seen them happening in my life at that point when I have expressed desperation or a serious need – a human angel appears to lift me from my crisis. So usually I tell people that God is my Provider and I will never lack and this is true as many people are just waiting for an opportunity to serve me.
Some time back I listened to a Pastor preaching about how angels are sent to deliver and provide for our needs. At that time, I thought these were not physical beings and wondered how they would accomplish the task except in a dream. But as I started gradually expressing my needs, I found that the answers came faster than when I just prayed and kept to myself. I activated human angels to save me and come to my rescue.
Do you have a need? What is it that you need help with? Ask and you shall receive because your human angel is waiting.
