Ask God First

Today may not be completely perfect. Challenges are likely to arise. They may be at home, on the job, in your relationships with others, or in goals that you need or want to accomplish. Often, in our haste to “put out the fire,” we fail to ask God to step into our crisis situation. But, God’s desire is to be with us in each minute of our day. Spirit is waiting to lead and guide us through anything and everything that comes. Today, remember to put first things first. Stop. Pray. Then, react with God’s help and wisdom.

Matthew 7:7-8 — 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 the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 

James 1:5 — If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

1 John 5:14-15 — This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
