-James 4:2 (NIV)
When we find ourselves caught up in trying to get what we want, there is a way to break free from the process and find an easier way to get our desired result. Similar to the lesson I teach my daughter, all we need to do is ask! Whether we are wanting inner peace, good health, the newest gadget, a new house, or a strong church, God is ready and able to lead us and help us. He may help us realize that we should be satisfied with what we have or He may help us achieve our goal. Either way, we will be better off than expending energy and trying to find ways to get more on our own...all because we ask!
When trying to get something, remember to think, "Did I ask?" Take the time to ask God for His help and guidance!
Thank You for always being ready and able to help me. Be with me and guide me, making sure I remember to ask You for what I need and want. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
