May God's will always be done


Abhi Sewak's comment on 2015-07-03 21:11:18:

John 3:3-7 Jesus said that- "no one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh,but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit....You must be born again. " The Spirit that has to be born again lies within you in a dormant state in your sacrum bone. You do not seek material gain.You only seek to be born again as Spirit to reach God.Faith in God and adherence to rightism is of-course pre-requirement.


MockingBird's comment on 2015-05-22 10:07:27:

You must ask according to the word of God. God will not give you anything that will turn you away from Him . He will back off and let you get what you want but He may not be in it. You cannot gamble with God . Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above , and cometh down from the Father of lights , with whom there is no variableness , neither shadow of turning.


Anthony Sims's comment on 2015-03-08 11:48:12:

I want a new job, I want a new truck, I want more money and a big fine house. Want, want, want. The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Taking on the mind of Christ in such a material world is quite the struggle. There are so many barriers between us and Jesus. The only word used to describe Jesus ' relationship with the disciples is that they followed. God created us to serve him. As our bond grows stronger and deeper with God, as described in Eph. 3:14-21, our need for things of this world diminish. What we want changes. And whatever God blesses us with is to be shared with our less fortunate brethren. Before we ask and knock let 's first ask God what HE wants.

What ever u ask u need believe and. Have. Faith that is. Done before. Seeing it and what ever u seek u shall find. If u are right with God cause he knows our heart and when u knock. The door shall be opened because. He is the only one who can open doors that are closed in our life

Always Ask, seek and knock the door of God 's kingdom. Believe me he will always be their for your help.


Toni's comment on 2014-02-25 06:19:24:

Randy read Romans 10 pay close attention to verses 8 10 You are correct God looks at the heart But the heart and mouth go hand in hand Romans 10 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation


Randy's comment on 2014-02-22 20:40:41:

You create everything that happens to you by your intent and inward asking You ask and it comes to be by your thoughts which might not be what you are saying with you voice You can say anything from your mouth but what you get is what you are asking from within That is was is dominant


Toni's comment on 2014-02-22 06:10:31:

We must put forth effort if we want to please God First of Jesus says ask this means we must open up our mouths and talk to God Come to Him with words The fervant prayer of a righteous man availeth much Next we have to seek that means if we want God we have to look for Him whatever we need we have to diligently seek out the answer from God and finally Jesus tells us to knock If we are standing on somebody s front porch but never take the time to knock on the door then how will they know to let us in Same thing with God if we never pray if we never call on His Son if we never let Him know we want to be saved He isn t going to open the door and that door is to the Kingdom of God I do not see this verse as talking all together about financial blessings or getting a wife or a husband or a new job this verse is about asking for the Holy Ghost and the fire If we want the Holy Ghost then we must ask for Him and must not stop until God opens that door and pours His Spirit freely upon us


Tina Marie Bradley's comment on 2014-01-10 04:33:30:

One of my favorite Biblical quotes...


Reddysreerama's comment on 2013-12-28 05:25:44:

Ask it shall be given
seek it shall be found and
knock and it shall be opened unto you.
Here we should ask which is well pleased to our Lord
Seek the kingdom of god first and then every thing required to us in his will, will be given;
knock the door of Gods kingdom then it will be opened is the meaning of Mathew 7;7


Simon P. Sanchez's comment on 2013-12-16 18:53:12:

I pray, for a beautiful wife, and a home to have , before I found out how many grandkids , I would have to take to church. I also prayed for the Lord, to make it harder on me and not my friends and family, which he did , but know I await my wife, even though I may know whom she is I await to see, what and where she may find me or I may find her. It is terrible, that it seeems as if everyone knows but me, excwept for I know, my faith will not let me down, nor will my Lord, because of the Blood of his begotten, Son, Our SAVIOR OF THE wORLD, tHANK yOU jESUS FOR ALL THAT yOU HAVE DONE FOR us.


Joseph Gakura's comment on 2013-11-28 18:31:52:

what a good love?
just do what He tells.

Can God? God can.
