God Will Always Provide. I Just Need To Ask

In review of Romans 8:32 it says, “Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?”

Bottom Line:
He did not spare his own Son, but rather gave him for us. So with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.

What this means to me:
Since he did not spare even his own Son, but gave him up for me. Won’t he also give me everything else I need. When I was younger, any time I needed something, I’d go talk to my dad. Sometimes what I needed was expensive, but I remember that not once as a kid did I worry about where my father was going to get the money for whatever I needed. That wasn’t my job! It was my dad’s job to figure out where the money was going to come from. It was my job as a child to simply ask. Likewise it’s not my job to figure out how God’s going to provide. It’s simply my job to ask. The Bible says in James 4:2, “You do not have because you do not ask God” (NIV). A second key to stress management is: Worry less, and ask more. Instead of worrying, pray about everything. Romans 8:32 says, “Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?” (NLT) If God solved my biggest problem, everything else is small by comparison. If God loved me enough to send Jesus to die for my sins, he loves me enough to help me with my finances, my health, my relationships, my career decisions, and with my deadlines. There’s no area of my life that God is not interested in. He already knows what I need, but he still wants me to ask him for it. Instead of worrying, pray about everything. I used to think it was unusual for me to ask if he already knows what I need. However, what I’m learning is that God wants me to ask so that I can learn to count on him and not take it for granted. Also, it helps in me knowing that God will respond to my requests.
