The scripture for today, May 11 (5/11), is 1st Peter 5:11 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
God has the power to do more for you than you ever dreamed. He can take you in new directions in your life; arrange for you to meet wonderful people; provide the ability to overcome not-so-good things in your life.
All you have to do is ask. Perhaps more than once. Perhaps many times. But he wants you to ask. Why?
Parents sometimes tell their children “no” the first time they ask for something. Maybe it’s because children need to find out for themselves how badly they want something. It’s in the asking they find out. So, God waits for the request. Sometimes the request never comes. And so, the blessing never comes.
Remember, God has the power. He probably has something (in his eyes) special in mind for you. So, ask. Again.
A CHILD’S BIBLE HEROES: ABRAHAM reminds us of the greatest man of faith in the history of mankind. Though it is written for a child, it wouldn’t hurt more adults to read it as a gentle reminder that we must keep asking and keep waiting. Be patient. Your big blessing will come.
