HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? When you say to the Lord, give me, give me, you're really saying I don't believe you. Because he has already said I am giving you all things richly to enjoy; you have it already. Hold everything, preacher; what about prayer? How can I pray to God if I'm not asking him for something? That is a general thought among many Christian communities that prayer is only for asking for things. Many in the body of Christ come into the prayer closet with a list of requests, and after they deliver that request, they usually leave the closet. Then they wait to see if their faith is strong enough to convince heaven that they really need the things they asked for. When we understand that he has given us all things richly to enjoy, prayer becomes a relational fellowship with our heavenly father. If you know how big business and entertainment work, most deals are done on the golf course or at the club party. Relationships are cemented in that environment, and deals are made out of that. Why would it be any different in the spiritual world with our heavenly father? After all, the scriptures tell us that if we draw nigh to God, he will draw nigh to us. That sounds to me like a relationship that is building a bond between two people. We know God loves us but do we love his company and friendship enough to hang out with him in the quiet places of prayer? In the intimacy of the prayer closet in the quiet times of meditation, our father begins to speak to us about the mysteries of heaven. As that conversation continues, the things that we had planned and asked for begin to come our way because our father knows all of our desires. He has provided all things for you that you may receive them with lavish Joy. Your position is one of receiving what he has provided. The sign of an open heart is the sound of worship and praise, thanking him in advance for what he is giving.
