"The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall NOT WANT." Psalms 23:1
"The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall NOT WANT any good thing." Psalms 34:10
"Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." Matthew 6:31-33
"And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
God says that He's already supplied ALL of our NEED! So it makes no sense to pray and ask Him for what we already have been supplied. All we must do is believe it by faith.
God desires for us to ask Him for the things that we WANT!
"Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalms 37:4
"Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you." Mark 11:24
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
"Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven." Matthew 18:18
"Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son." John 14:3
Who are you going to believe? The lies of the world or the truth of God's Holy Word?!
God is not a man that can lie. His Word says it, so I believe it. It doesn't matter what the wicked or the religious world thinks. Choose to believe what God says or forfeit your blessings. God says, choose life! Be humble to His Word. Trust and rely on Him and not be a people pleaser. God created people so don't ever think too highly of them. Think on God and believe like God.
Jesus came to give us life MORE ABUNDANTLY! His body was not whipped and His blood was not shed for us to live a basic life. We're supernatural beings created in the image of God. We don't have to wait until we get to heaven to live like kings and queens. The Bible says, As Jesus is, so are we in THIS world! We're the righteousness of God in Christ. We're blessed with every spiritual blessing IN Christ. God created us to reign and rule on this earth. Take the land! It's promised to the children of God not the people of this world. We've been given the keys of heaven. We're the head and NOT the tail. We're the lenders and NOT the borrowers.
Don't be deceived by the enemy anymore. Get to know the truth in God's Word and freely receive all that's been given to you by grace through your faith! It's okay to ask God for what you want. It's not greed, it's growth! God wants us to have child-like faith. Parents will feel discouraged if their children always asked them for what they need…(what are you going to eat? wear? etc. It's an honor for our children to trust that we will also provide for their wants. It's okay to want! Everyone wants something, because God created us to stretch and enjoy life (John 10:10/1 Timothy 6:17). Besides, Jesus already died for it so ask for it and receive it!
