I've remembered that advice for times when I'm in places where I might stand out as a foreigner or stranger. Walk fast, look straight ahead, and don't ask questions.
With the Lord, though, we don't need to follow that advice. We can ASK him anything at all... and there are great and wonderful promises that come with asking FOR THOSE WHO FOLLOW HIM with everything they have and all that they are.
- Ask and it will be given to you...
- Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
- If any of you lacks wisdom, he or she should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault.
- This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
