James said: ‘you don’t have because you don’t ask’ (James 4v2) So why don’t I ask? Do I think I can provide for myself? Am I too proud to get on my knees? Is my faith in God’s ability to provide too small? Do I keep forgetting about the last time God gave me what I needed? Truth is – I see myself as really not that needy.
Truth is – God sees me as completely needy (and that’s a good thing: ‘You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realise that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.’ (Revelation 3v17http://bit.ly/17gJgsZ )
