Many times we doubt God’s willingness to meet our needs or give us the desires of our hearts. We call our fear ‘contentment’ and think that our Father is just like us…..limited.
Meditate on the following verses and ask yourself; Does God mean what He says? Better yet, ask Him!
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. (Mt. 7:7-8)

Yet you do not have because you do not ask. (James 4:2)
