Sometimes we fall in between these two mindsets.We know God can do anything, but we hold out hope for our other resources as well, or... we make decisions without truly seeking God's direction, or... we ask without believing God will answer us, or...we are unwilling to accept God's answers, or...we simply don't ask. Today's not too late to look away from our inadequacies and simply trust. Take a deep breath, and Just ASK!
*Think about how you perceive others asking you for help. These are the things that come to my mind. 1) I love to get what my kids want. If they put an item they need on the Wal-Mart list, I'm bringing it home when I do my shopping. 2) I may not volunteer for something, but I'm happy to help or to lend when someone asks something of me.
*Now think about the responses you get when you ask something of others. I've been upset because of not having help, but when I asked for assistance, I received it.
Yes, there are times I have said no to my kids, and there are times others have declined my requests, but I sure get a lot more and give a lot more when asking has been involved.
