Promise: Ask And It Will Be Given

“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 he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! — Matthew 7:7-11

Well God keeps His promises. He is so amazing. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but I have really never searched for a job in my entire life. Don’t misunderstand me, I have worked most of my life but God has been so gracious to open doors of opportunity before I even begin the search.

New testimony August 29, 2014. Since I’ve been home (the end of May), from caring for my parents, I have not gotten a job. The good Lord has supplied all our needs with half the income for over 2 years. The other issue is that we only have one car so I need employment I can walk to. I have applied at one place but nothing has come of that yet. We are beginning to feel the need for a little more income in our household. Well this particular morning I went before the Lord God and asked for Him to help bring income into our home. I asked that He would get me a job if that was His desire. I knew that I would have to leave it to Him. I didn’t see any leads or how He would manage but I trusted that He could and would.

That very afternoon after I prayed I received a call from my best friend’s son asking if I would be interested in working at the Bible bookstore he works at. Wow! God is amazing. So I immediately got online and filled out an application, told him I had done it and he said he would be getting back to me early next week.

Also need to let you know that my friend suggested me to her son 2 days prior to his call to me. If I had received that call before the prayer, I would not have thought it to be a divine intervention. God’s timing is perfect. He can be trusted.

God keeps His promises. Sometimes very quickly. You can ask and receive because He does love you, cares for you and wants His best purpose for you.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
