Pray And Ask Big


When God sets a plan into our lives, He did not just put it just for us to live, survive, and to sustain but instead, He put more than enough for us to reach and meet out our needs, because He is God of abundance and we read this in the scriptures if you read your bible. An example of this is when Christ Jesus multiplied the five loaves of bread and two fishes to feed the massive number of people, and after that, there are still twelve baskets full of leftovers. What interesting is that they know and have counted the people more than a thousand gathers together?! And Christ Jesus knew how many people in the crowd that day. However, with God’s mercy with them, He had given more than enough.

In the Old Testament, David said my cups run over. He had an abundance more than he needs it. It is essential for us that we should thank God that the supply of our need met and we should be grateful that we have enough, but don’t settle there because that is not your destiny, it is good that we have enough. But God wants you to have more than enough so that you can be a blessing to those who are around you. It is where the Israelite missed it; they have been to slavery for so many years and had been conditioned to barely not enough.

It took me a couple of years to understand these principles until a dream came to mind. John 3: 16 -For God so love the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. Mark 11:24 – Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. These scriptures became my principles in life.

Take heed and dare ask God for big and be bold but not on the slave mentality. God created the universe for us to enjoy and have a healthy life to its fullest, His grace and love for us has no boundaries, and even when we make mistakes He is ever ready to accept our faults for as long we acknowledge Him as our God and repent for the sins, we have committed. How good is that? That we serve a forgiving God!

Many reasons that take so long to receive what you prayed for it is because God wants your faith to grow. On the other hand, the negativity that you planted in your heart the so-called what if not going to happen. You quickly get discouraged, especially when you wanted it so badly you want it to arrive at the right moment. In Proverbs 3:5-6; Trust in the Lord, with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; (6) in all your ways, submit to Him, and He will make your path straight. So let God your vindicator.

God has something more significant for you that He had stored, ask Him and remind and remember His promises; whatever circumstances you have and are facing in all walk of life. In Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God, will be with you wherever you go. Psalm 37: 4 – Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 50:15 – And call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me. Ask God and pray with boldness about your dream and your purpose; again remind Him his promises; pray as a child does, after all, we are His children.

Experience An Abundance In Life.

  1. Very very very true, Leonie.

    Ever since the start of this year, I’ve been trying to post a vampire novel chapter, short story, poem or haiku to my blog each day so I can get my writing out there and become better known as a writer.

    Trusting that somehow God will see to it that my writing does become known around the world.

    And this year, I now have readers from every continent around the world (with the possible exception of Antarctica).

    And just today I noticed that a fellow WordPress blogger wrote and published a glowing book review of my first published vampire novel The Vampiress With Amnesia on her blog. 🙂

    1. Chris, we serve a God-loving and got it in control what you want of having into your life. You will be amazed at His greatness when He exceeds what you don’t expect to happen in your life. So keep on trusting Him, and quit doubting. God sets the time for, and that is now, claim it! God bless you!

  2. We have to take into consideration IF our prayers are not answered, that one, they truly are not for our highest good, or two, we have to exhibit both Faith and Patience until God’s perfect time comes for that prayer to be answered. Can you imagine the horrors we would have in our lives if all our prayers were answered? I for one am glad God knows more then I do! (smile)

    1. Amy Rose, thank you for commenting: first of all, God answers prayer based on the desired of our hearts, He is too good in all His ways to give what we want and need in His Own timing. An example when He gives rains to the Land for farmers to grow their crops and sunshine to sustain it. For without agriculturist we have no food to buy in the supermarket to sustain us. 🙂

      1. Leonie, I truly understand where you are coming from, believe me. Yet, due to “life experience” which has taught me vital lessons, I am very cautious as to claim I know how God will answer prayer. Bottom line, we don’t know …. thus God remains a mystery as He should. The important factor in the radius of our prayers, is our FAITH that not only has God heard our prayers, but He will answer them in His own timing and His Way. Not ours.
