Exodus 37 to 40
In Britian we often feel that there is something terribly impolite about asking. Clearly this cultural taboo is a hindrance for a Christian.
How marvellous is our God. He tells us to ask! The improbable, the unlikely, the awkward, the difficult and even the impossible are commonplace to Him.
Ps 2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. NIV
You may not feel 'worthy' of anything that God does. You may feel that this is all too big for you. And yet, God still tells you to ask! Stretch yourself today and see the hand of God in your life – you have not because you ask not!
Matt 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. NIV
James 4:2 You do not have, because you do not ask God. NIV
