Ask & Receive

“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:18-20

Imagine if God were standing right in front of you. What would you say to Him? If you were guaranteed a private audience with the Lord Almighty what would you ask of Him? Knowing that whatever you ask would be given to you with heavenly power behind it. When you pray and gather with two or more people in Jesus name He is there. Did you grasp that? Jesus is literally in your midst! You are able to have a private audience with Jesus Himself! That His Word promises. Yet so many people treat that scripture so lightly. We have been given the authority through Jesus to bind things on earth and in heaven yet how much of that do we really do? We don’t have to worry that our prayers are going to miss the ear of the Lord. He has promised to be there and He is true to His Word. All the more we should be praying together with our friends, family, and even stranger abroad to present our requests to God. We need to bind in heaven and earth what we need. Don’t be afraid to be specific. If you have the ear of Jesus at your beck and call I wouldn’t want to give a general prayer. Instead you should give a specific, on target, and detailed prayer. Sometimes we get this fear that we shouldn’t ask to much of God because it would then make as greedy and unappreciative. If only you knew how much your heavenly Father wanted to give you, you would never stop asking Him for things! “Ask and you shall receive.” (Matthew 7:7) Never will you find a verse that tells you to stop asking, or stop once you’ve gotten a certain amount. God wants you to overflow with blessings, favor, and love. He wants more for you then you want for yourself.

Don’t let fear hold you back from asking God what you need. Stop what you are doing and find someone to pray and agree with you. You no longer need to hold your breath and wonder if your prayers went through. “You may ask me for anything in my name and I will do it.” (John 14:14) Stop wondering, and start asking!

If you ever need someone to agree with you in prayer that you don’t have in your life now, then feel free to reach out to me and together we can have a private audience with Jesus for whatever you need! I hope all who read this have a blessed day!
