People can be hard to please, but this does not apply to God. We don’t need to jump through the hoops to please Him. We don’t have to bend over backwards to get into His graces. He already loves us. The Lord is good, and it’s His desire to be good to us. Asking Him triggers a boatload of blessings:
- God is ready to forgive and forget. Often a major hurdle for us is to forgive ourselves, God help us! The blessing of getting unstuck, the blessing of moving on, the blessing of experiencing God’s tender mercies are a huge milestone in many people’s lives.
- Unloading burdens not meant for our shoulders is another huge blessing. I for one have a tendency to obsess over things I have no control over.
- God is good. His goodness is a great blessing. What a relief to know that He’s on our side, He’s our advocate and He has our best interest at heart!
- God is love. Goodness and loving kindness will follow us for the rest of our lives. Think about that for a minute. His love never goes away!
The beauty lies in the simplicity: we unlock His blessings by asking. Just ask Him and see what happens.
