Do not be afraid to ask

Please watch this short video message before reading the rest of the message below. Thanks!

Before we dig in: For more info what happened to me. I posted blogs on: https://wordpress.com/post/amyjanesandberg.com/ and https://deeplyrootedinhim.net/2019/08/11/that-did-not-go-as-i-planned

Now – Asking God for help isn’t always easy. Espessily if you do not believe, in God, Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Why bother asking? I believe in Jesus, I do not believe I would be alive if it wasn’t for Him. LITERALLY! There have been so many close calls…

However, even if you do believe, you may still struggle for several other reasons. Such as these: 1- It is an issue you have been dealing with for a long time. 2- It feels like it is too small a concern to bother God with. 3- You may have no idea where to start or how to ask. 4- You may not feel worthy enough to ask. I could go on, but only you know what it is holding you back from asking. GratefullyRestored and I have been talking a lot about standing in faith and overcoming obstacles and trials you may be faced with. That starts with asking God for help. When we do that we are submitting our issues and saying “Okay God, Jesus, Holy Spirit – please help me! I give my stress and burdens to you. I trust you to take care of me!” It is not easy to admit we need help, but that isn’t admitting defeat. Instead, think of it as calling in the troops and saying let’s get this done!

Let me say this… God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit love you. I believe in Love. Love is powerful! Love makes a huge difference! Know you are loved and the fact that I believe Jesus died for everyone – no matter what race, gender, or choices you make. John 3:16 Then why wouldn’t He want to answer your need, your prayer, your request? Hmm? It is up to you what you do with that knowledge. It is not my place to tell you what to do. It’s your life and your choice. I do want to say tho – Miracles are real, You are loved, and you are not alone if you don’t wanna be. I have hope and faith in my Father God. That gives me strength trusting that they’re out there with me and looking out for me. When you are desperate and you don’t know what to say just call out to Jesus… “Jesus… I need you! Jesus!!!” It is as easy as that.

📖 Bible Verses:

✞Pslams 103 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms+103&version=NKJV
✞ Psalms 104 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalms+104&version=NLT

✞Matthew 6:26-34 (New King James Version) Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

✞ Matthew 7:7-8 (King James Version) Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (King James Version)

✞ Psalm 37:4 (New International Version) Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

✞ Hebrews 13:5-6 (New American Standard Version) “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?”

✞ John 3:16 (TheLivingBible) For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son[a] so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

✞ John 10:10 (King James Version) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

✞ John 10:11-12 (New Living Translation) “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. 12 A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. (New Living Translation)

✞ Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

✞ 2 Timothy 2:1-2 (King James Version) You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.

✞ 2 Timothy 1:7 (King James Version) God hath not given us the spirit of fear ; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

✞ Romans 8:28 (New International Version) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

✞ Isaiah 53:1-7 (TheLivingBible) But, oh, how few believe it! Who will listen? To whom will God reveal his saving power? In God’s eyes[a] he was like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry and sterile ground. But in our eyes there was no attractiveness at all, nothing to make us want him. We despised him and rejected him—a man of sorrows, acquainted with bitterest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way when he went by. He was despised, and we didn’t care. Yet it was our grief he bore, our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, for his own sins! But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed! We—every one of us—have strayed away like sheep! We, who left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet God laid on him the guilt and sins of every one of us! He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he never said a word. He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter; and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he stood silent before the ones condemning him.

✞ Deuteronomy 28:12-14 (New International Version) The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

✞ Isaiah 41:10 (New International Version) So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

!WAIT ON IT!

!WAIT ON IT! magnify

!Wait!

Wait…Wait…Wait…Wait..Wait…Wait…BUT…WAIT!!!…Wait…Wait…wait…Wait…wait…But!…
…………………………………………..WAIT!!!..
……….WAIT………wait………………………………….

OK, NOW!

Do you ever feel like that? You’re waiting, and waiting, and waiting. Because God said Wait! And you feel like the answer, or what you’re praying for may never come. I understand. I have been struggling with a few things and I have been praying about them. Well a few days ago about one main thing I was concerned about. God very clearly told me to. That’s right. WAIT! Oh man has that been hard. But I gave it all to God and I said ok. “Ok God! I know your timing is perfect. Give me the strength I need to wait, and I will.” As soon as I said that it seemed a lot of temptations started to appear. I was surrounded. But I Know, that I know! God’s plan is best plan.

Sometimes we have to wait hours, days, weeks, months, and even years for an answer to a prayer. And it gets very hard, and it can cause anger, stress, and emotional problems. But sometimes it takes time to line up every thing. For Example: We will move out of state one day. Which is my Mothers heart felt prayer. God said Yes. But we are still here four years latter. And she asks why! “Why God, are we still here.” God only knows. Maybe the home she will have is not ready for her. Or the job she will work is not open. Maybe there are other things too that need to fall in to place.

But not all prayers require such a long waiting period. But some do take a wait. And I have leaned for my own “Wait” prayers that they are worth waiting for. Some examples: I had my teddy bear taken from me when I was in the hospital at age twelve. I was mad but I prayed about it I forgave and Trusted God about it. Several years latter I went in to the hospital again. It was over Christmas, and guess what I got. Not just one teddy bear but twenty Teddy bears. They were gifts and donations. What a blessing. I kept some and donated the rest. But God keeps his word. I prayed for a Vehicle and with in a matter of three weeks God blessed me with finding the perfect Vehicle for me and I was able to afford it. I could list many more prayers. But they don’t matter. The point is God keeps his word and answers our needs out hears desire. As long as they will bless and help us bless others and it is in his plan. We want to be in his plan, because then our life is sure to be blessed and a blessing to others.

When you don’t wait on the Lord some times you can mess up the plan God has for you and it takes longer for the answer to come through. I am standing in faith that God has a Man for me. But when I was younger I decided to help God in my search. And I dated a young man for about nine years. I had every intention to marry him. God said No all along but I refused to listen because where else would I find a man who loved me for me. What I didn’t realize he did love me but more so because he didn’t want to be alone. He had no real intention of ever marrying me. And finally I realized I was living what I wanted, and I was holding both of us back from what God has for us. Sure it wasn’t a complete waste; God brought some good from it. But what did I miss out on, while making my own path? I know I fell away from God a bit in my studies. (He was not a Godly man.) I believed I was not worth anyone but his love, I let my self go. “I am good enough with just getting by.” That was my way of thinking. Which I know now is wrong. You need to be all you can and then some. I want to be so much I want to bless you and the ones I know. I want to be a woman of God, some one he, my heavenly (and earthly) father can be proud of. I want to spread God’s love to every one and I want NO ONE to go to hell. But that is your choice to want. I can only give you what I know and pray for you.

So… Please, WAIT on the Lord and keep your faith in Him. He has not forgotten you, he knows your heart. He is your father too! Thank God for the objective you’re praying about and stand firm. Don’t waver.

God Bless you!!
