What BOLD and COURAGEOUS Trailmen Ask For
8/24/2016 12:00:01 AM BY Rob Green, Director of Field Operations

Last time, I related in Acts 4 how Peter and John stood up to the religious rulers, the bullies of their day – by the power of the Holy Spirit living in them. But is that boldness reserved for first-century apostles only or is it for us today also?

1 John 5:11-14 answers that. “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the assurance we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Take note as you let that sink in: the Bible is very clear; there is only one “path to God”—Jesus Christ—and He wants us to recognize that first and foremost. Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.” Now, back to the blog…

He tells us again, in Matthew 7:7, to come to Him, to talk with Him. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

We have assurance that we can go to Him and ask Him for what we need, even what we want. But our desires must be aligned with His desires for us. Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”

The wisest man who ever lived before Jesus’ time, King Solomon, was asked early on what he wanted from God (see 2 Chronicles 1:8-12). Rather than asking for riches or honor or long life or triumph over enemies, he asked for wisdom; he received that – and all the other things as a result. Just like Jesus told us in Matthew 6:33, “Seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

James 1:5 says “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” He wants you to seek wisdom, to seek Him – not stuff – to find true fulfillment.

So, Trailmen, “Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence (Hebrews 4:16)”…and ask worthy.
