"At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, "Ask! What shall I give you?" 1 Kings 3:5

Remember that child-like wonderment as you thought things over, or if you just saw something you have never seen before? Total inquisitive power pumping through your body and brain.

Are you inquisitive of God? Do you ask Him for things that you need and want? Personally I do not believe there is anything wrong with asking God for things needed or wanted. The actual results are already known by Him as He knows what lurks in your mind and dwells in your heart before you even begin to know.

The important thing before you is the asking; the coming to God in the relationship you have with Him and trusting Him to provide what is best as He is the Father. So the outcome is not always what we ask for, but it will be what is needed for His plan for your life.

During this economic disruption I know many of us are praying to make ends meet. Making bills each month is challenging, especially when you are an artist. I constantly am praying and asking, 'should I return to the classroom to teach?'... and I have even submitted a few applications here or there, like casting my net. Something deep inside quiets me...God will solve the problem at hand. Just by asking Him, I have shown Him that I do need Him in my life, yet how He decides to solve the problem is not important as I do trust Him to solve it in the best way possible.

God does not want me to depend on a solution that I have offered teaching... He wants me to depend on Him. So now I go to step two in my prayer and ask for comfort and peace so I do not stress out over the needs our family faces.

If you decide you can do this on your own and do it your way, you are basically saying you don't need God...and you begin to deal with the problem yourself. That is when I believe we take a different path than the intended one and often it takes years to get back to where we were before the situation occurred.

Speak to Him today and share your needs and concerns with Him. Don't seek a resolution, but seek God instead. He will give you exactly what you need.


"So humble yourselves under the might power of God, and at the right time He will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you." 1 Peter 5:6-7
