When Jesus asks you a question, He wants you to respond in a specific manner. He also doesn’t want to be the only one asking the questions. There are some things He wants you to ask Him!
· He wants you to ask His help in revolving your life around Him. He doesn’t simply want to reside in your heart. He wants total residence in your entire life. He wants to guide and direct each one of your steps.
· He wants you to ask for a hunger and thirst for the things of God. It’s not enough to simply know Him: He wants to develop a hunger within you to know Him better. He also wants you to grow in your desire to be with His people.
· He wants you to ask Him to help you keep up with the basics in developing a growing relationship with Him. Without continuing in a consistent prayer life and in daily Bible reading, your relationship with Christ will slowly fade.
· He wants you to ask Him to deepen your trust in His Word. He wants you to know-beyond doubt – that he never breaks His promises.
