It’s easy to ask God for things. 

To cry out to Him in times of trouble.

To seek His face when we feel lost. 

To run to Him when we are afraid.

Yes, going to God is the easy part—but that should come as no surprise. We are used to seeking help and guidance when it will benefit us.

But the act of asking is not enough. 

God requires us to have faith when we bring our petitions to His throne. He wants us to truly believe He is able to perform that which we ask. 

Scripture says, “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).

I don’t know about you but I often seek the Lord while silently doubting His power or willingness to answer my prayer. 

I heard a quote related to this a while back that shook me to my core. I don’t remember who spoke the words, but I remember them as clear as day. 

“If you don’t think God will, don’t worry, He won’t”

How profound. 

How often I doubt the Creator of the universe.

The One who made the blind to see again.

The One who made the lame to walk.

The One who made the dead to rise.

How often I doubt the Savior of mankind. 

I wonder how many times my lack of faith has hindered blessings in my life

It is my heart’s desire to grow a faith that is unwavering.
