Hello [subscriber:firstname | default:Beloved],
Last week I spoke to you about the importance of inquiring of God in times of adversity. This week, we will continue in the same vein. Inquiring of God is covered in the second part of Matthew 7:7. After “Ask, and it will be given to you”, the Bible says “…seek, and you will find…”. You seek something or someone when you don’t know where it/he is, right? Otherwise, the verb “seek” would not be used. Obviously, when inquiring of God, one must seek God, one must ask Him questions in order to obtain answers.
Before you get involved in a business or relationship in times of adversity, for example, spend some time alone with your Lord to seek His face. Ask Him the many questions that are on your mind and wait until He answers you. Remember that you need the anointing of the Holy Spirit to be able to receive and discern God’s voice.
Many children of God do not consider themselves holy enough to inquire directly of the Lord and prefer to ask a pastor or prophet to inquire of God on their behalf and then give them the answer. Yet these people need the blood of Jesus and the grace of God as much as you do! That is why, in your search for divine answers, it is important to combe boldly to the throne of grace through the blood of Jesus, to obtain mercy (Hebrews 4:16).
Do not forget that God is your Daddy and that He loves you. Didn’t He say in His Word: “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). Have faith in your own prayer, seek God with all your heart and you will find Him; inquire of Him and He will answer you! “I love those who love Me And those who seek me diligently will find me”, He assures us (Proverbs 8:17). Believe in this word when you inquire of the Lord on a given subject.
Do not make hasty prayers. Do not be agitated or in a hurry when you stand before His face. Do not seek human solutions with your relationships. Take some time for a retreat if you need to, but do not engage in any business or relationship without first inquiring of God, especially in times of adversity. The divine breakthrough you desire depends on it!
May God bless you!
