Did you ask?

I always try to have a journal handy in the morning.  Sometimes I use it to capture thoughts that come to me during my morning devotions.  Sometimes I write about yesterday or what is ahead of me today.  Sometimes I write as though I were speaking with God.

This morning, my first words were “Lord, I am in need”.    Then I put the journal down to go refill my coffee cup, and on the way (in all of 5 steps) I hear a voice from within bring to my recollection a passage from Psalm.

“The Lord is my Shepherd, I (you) shall not want (lack/need).”
Psalm 23:1

Coffee cup refilled, I settle back down and continued on in my writing:

“But I am in need, or at least it sure feels like it.”

And again, another Scripture:

“You have not because you ask not.”
James 4:2

Hmm.  I guess sometimes I just assume that He knows what I want and what I need.  And of course, He does – even before I ask it.

But that doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t be asking.

I would love to hear your thoughts.
