Ephesians 3:20 ” Now to Him Who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…”

Most of us don’t like to ask for help, directions, or answers to questions we have. It goes against our stubborn, willful, independent heart & nature. The same goes for making a request before the Lord. It’s usually after we’ve tried everything ourselves that we finally come to Him for help. So why is it so hard to take our supplications and petitions to God? Are we afraid He’ll refuse us, revile us, Or belittle us? Maybe we’re just mad at ourselves for not being able to figure the problem out and are then forced to ask for help? Perhaps in the past we’ve pleaded to the Lord for something…only to have the opposite happen, and now we’re not sure if we want to try it again. In God’s limitless vision for us, He can do only good, and our asking isn’t nearly as important as how we ask. I John 3 & 5 tell us that we can have confidence to receive from God anything we ask if we obey His commands, do what pleases Him, and ask according to His Will.
