Scripture Reading: John 16:24
“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
Have you ever asked? Jesus said you have not yet asked for anything in His name. He said you have not yet cashed any of the checks He has signed for you; that is why your joy is not full yet. He said: “Ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” Pray that God will cash all the unpresented checks written to you in the name of Jesus.
When you receive this harvest of blessing, Jesus will say, “Ask again!” He will say you have not yet dented His account because His resources are unlimited; they are infinite. There can never be a debit to His ever-increasing account in the Bank of Almighty God.
Brethren, make a fresh list. Ask again that your joy be full. The greatest hindrance to asking again is the notion that we have asked already for the same thing. However, in the scripture above, we have a command from the Lord of abundance to ask again. Everything we need on planet earth belongs to Him. He is the controller of resources and He decides the time of the eruption of blessings.
Pray for the grace to receive your released blessings. Ask that you may receive until your joy is full. Exercise your faith.
Substantiate the things you hope for. Give God pleasure as you prosper for he takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants.
O Lord take me to the realm of persistent praying without feeling condemned by the limitations of my mind. Put your mind in me and let me have the mind of Christ I pray.
Give me your vision so I can visualize your provision. Give me the grace to ask until my joy is full and shower your blessings on me I ask again.
