WHY ARE WE NOT ASKING?

WHY ARE WE NOT ASKING? post thumbnail

Greetings brethren. I want to start today by charging you to ask of God more to push the limits of asking.

Take the limits off your asking and push to expand your territory.

Our text is taken from Psalm 2: 8

Ask of Me, and I will give You, The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession. (NKJV)

Why are we not asking of God the nations?

Why are we not asking enough?

I sort of realized that we have become mediocre and all we desire to do is to serve God but we haven’t taken the limit off our thinking.

In Ephesians 3: 20 the bible says;

“And Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”

God can do exceeding abundantly!

That means that we need to stretch our imaginations to be able to ask adequately from God.

God says to us in the text we are using, ask of me the nations.

How many of you today have asked God for Nigeria,Ghana etc? How many business people are looking at expanding their businesses beyond their states?
How many career or professionals are thinking of moving beyond nations or taking nations for their services?
How come we just sit and we are comfortable with where we are?

meanwhile God has given us the charge to ask of him.​

Today this season, this new month, I charge you to start to ask the impossible, start to stretch the impossible in your mind. Start to imagine the impossible. Start to want more as a child of God, a child of the King, a child of the Creator of the universe. Everything belongs to God.

In Psalm 24: 1, the scripture say

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.”

Why are we still limited in our asking.? This is a new month, this is a new season start today to ask of God, start today to imagine the impossible. Don’t stay in the place where you are just managing.

There’s nothing like managing in the kingdom of God.

The bible says “the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12b). You must come to the place where you say “unless you bless me I won’t leave you”. Did you see what Jacob did to the angel when they met? He held him and said “unless you bless me I would not let you go”.

So we must come out this month with the ability to stretch. No longer mediocre thinking, no longer saying “can this be?”. It can be because we have the Holy Spirit, we have the power of God working in us. When elevated in your place of work or you experience increase in your business, don’t allow mediocrity set in. Ask yourself,

“God, what more can I do?”

Prayer

Dear God expand the territory of my mind. Today I refuse to think mediocre. I refuse to be driven by mediocrity in my business, in my life in my ministry. All I ask today is that you expand my territory, expand my territory lord, in Jesus name amen.

Charge
