Ask and It Shall Be Given You

This statement sounds incredible. ASK and it shall be given. It sounds amazing, doesn't it? It sounds almost unbelievable right? Imagine if all you had to do to get anything you wanted out of life is ASK. It sounds a little farfetched doesn't it?

But the Bible tells us to ASK and it shall be given you.

No matter how farfetched it may sound, it is so true. If it weren't true, the Bible wouldn't say it.

If you go to God and ask Him to help you discover His purpose for your life, and if you are truly sincere and truly desire to find your purpose, "it shall be given you." It will. Try it. Go somewhere you can be alone. Find a quiet place where you can talk with God.

Tell him your desire. Let him know that you are unhappy with your present situation. You know you were meant to be great! Let Him know that want more for your life than your present situation.

Let Him know that you desire to lead the life He has planned for you. Remind Him that He said "Ask, and it shall be given you." Let Him know that you are ready to start living His purpose for your life.

And then listen. Listen for the answer. Listen to your heart, to your soul, to your quiet spirit. Spend sometime in mediation and clear your mind until ideas start to flow from God directly to you. It will happen.

Write down what God is directing to your soul. Write down every thought and idea that enters your head.

For the next week, write down every single idea that comes to you. The idea may come when you are eating breakfast, or driving to work, or when you're in the shower. Generally, it comes when your mind is not occupied with your daily thoughts. It will generally come when your mind is free of thought. That's why it's important to mediate each day.

By meditate, I don't necessarily mean that you will have to sit with your legs crossed and palm up, chanting. I simply mean find some time when you are alone and in quiet surrounding. You cannot mediate if the kids are running around you, screaming. Or the spouse is telling you about their day. You can't mediate watching the prime time special on television--because your mind will be occupied with other things.

Make it a habit of spending at least 15 minutes each day in complete quietness. Clear your mind and let the thoughts and ideas flow. This is God's way of communicating with you. Pay attention. He is trying to give you the answers you need to lead the life you know you are meant to live.

Seek, and ye shall find.

Once you get your answers from God, it is now your responsibility to seek out ways you can live your life's purpose. Do research. Talk with people who know about your life's purpose. Seek others who are presently doing what you will be doing. Research your purpose via the Internet or the Library. Go to the bookstore. Believe it or not there is nothing new under the sun. If you are interested in a subject, there are others interested in the same subject and someone, somewhere has written a book on it. So seek, and ye shall find.

Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Once you realize your purpose, research it, study it until you know a lot regarding your subject, all you have to do is knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

You will be amazed at all the opportunities that will start coming your way once you learn your purpose. Once you start the wheels turning others will start materializing that will help to bring you to the next level. The Universe will start to work in your favor.

Let me give you an idea of how this works. When I decided to write a book, it was simply a thought I had. The very next day after having this idea, I went on the Internet and in my mailbox, there was an email on How to Write an Ebook. I hadn't even looked up this information yet. It was simply there, in my mailbox, waiting for me to read it.

There are thousands of others examples I could give. It is truly amazing and God never ceases to amaze me.

ACTION POINT: This week, ask God to help you discover His plan for your life. Once you receive His answer, research your subject and keep your eyes open for all the doors that will start to open.
