Ask for the Right Things

God wants us to have more, but sometimes we ask for the wrong things. When we ask God for the right things, he will respond. And he will give us more than we can ever ask for. But the key is to focus on Jesus, and ask for the right things.

2 Corinthians 8:7 But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also.

Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
