Ask Aright or Amiss

Jesus said, “Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16.24).  All I have to do is ask.  It’s easy to ask when my heart is right with God and others; it’s impossible when filled with pride.  It’s reasonable for the Creator to call upon His creation to depend upon Him.  I must open my mouth wide, and He will fill it (Psalm 81.10).  When I ask, God consoles me, draws me near, and helps me to see life from Heaven’s perspective.  If I ask and don’t receive, the problem is with me.  I’ve asked amiss.  Lord, save me from asking without receiving.  When I do receive, allow me to give you the praise and glory!
