Just Ask!

It’s so not good to be broke o. it’s even worse when the period of being broke comes shortly after you were really boxed up. I remember going to the shopping mall one day and picking almost anything that caught my attention. I was not bothered about the prices neither was I afraid of the total bill because I knew that irrespective of what the total cost was, my ATM card was ‘weightier’. After some days it dawned, like it did on the prodigal son, that the money was no more.  It had been used up on all sorts. It really was not squandered on irrelevant things but irrespective of what I spent it on, the fact was that it was gone.

This left me with two options; one was to call home and ask for more money but then I feared father will ask what I spent the money on and two was to manage what was left pending the time I got a call from home asking about my welfare. It was a tough decision but somehow I settled for the latter option.

Shortly after, an opportunity came for me to go home and I seized it. At home, I saw the house was transformed, there was a new car and a whole lot of really cool stuffs. My daddy went shopping and bought a lot of things both for himself and for the house. My jaw dropped as I saw him hand over the huge amount of cash to the lady at the pay point and then I remembered the little change I had been managing in school. ‘Please who asked me not to call home all this while?’ was the question I kept asking myself as I walked out of the mall carrying the things we bought.

Daddy had never complained that I was a burden or asked for too much. He was always willing and glad to give me anything I asked for even when he didn’t have it. Amazingly, that is exactly how our Heavenly Father is willing to grant our heart desires when we are in need. All He says is ‘Ask, Seek and Knock (Matt 7:7). He is more than able to give exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think (Eph 3:20).

He says in Matt 7:11 ‘If you then who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good things to those who ask’. There is no point trying to see reasons why God won’t accept you as you are because all He sees when we approach Him is the blood of His Son that was shed for our sins. So the next time you are in need of anything- finances, breakthrough, help, forgiveness, deliverance, direction and so on, remember you have a Father whose riches cannot be quantified, just ask Him.

And if you don’t yet have this Father-son/daughter relationship, it’s equally easy; believe He loves you and died for you, confess your sins and yes ASK Him to be your Lord, Savior and Daddy and you bet, He will.


 ‘…if we admit our sins-make a clean breast of them- He won’t let us down; He’ll be true to Himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing’. (1 Jh 1:9 MSG). Just as the case of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32),

God is waiting with open arms to receive you. Remain blessed!
