Ask Jesus

Driving home one morning after church a handmade sign in red lettering on the roadside caught my attention as a red bird swooped down in front of my car. The sign read: ASK JESUS HE CAN HELP YOU.

In a word/ sign so simple yet so profound it keeps resounding over and over on the inside. Ask Jesus. Ask Me.

So many times in seeking Jesus for an answer; however it may arise. In times of need, unknowns, uncertainties, questions, or just to feel Him near. Ask Jesus. He can and will help you!

In those moments when seeking healing, answers, wisdom, guidance, peace, protection, provision, His Presence, parenting advice, dating advice, revelation, the list is endless. In all of these and so much more. Jesus will answer you if you just ask!

One of our blooms was rushed to the hospital when her water broke and she was concerned and scared since she was going into labor really early. Her due date is July 22nd. The Dr.’s were able to stop the leaking and fluids and in the middle of all of it, the only thing she could do was say Jesus, Jesus! Her Mom recalled the same events and said she just kept saying Jesus, Jesus, Jesus over and over again.

I love the song by 7eventh Time Down- Just say JesusWhen you don’t know what to say…Just say Jesus; there is power in His name! Whisper it now, or shout it out! He hears your cries. Out of nowhere He will come. If the words won’t come cause your too afraid to pray. There is just one name Jesus.

I went to visit this beautiful bloom and her sweet Mom in the hospital. They began to give the full story of what had happened in those moments leading up to her early labor. Also sharing praise reports of how Jesus had heard their prayers and her baby was safe and sound in his mommies womb. They are hoping and praying this little one can stay warm and cozy inside the womb until the right moment of delivery.

His gender reveal party was so special as the pictures showed mommy and daddy opening the oven and a little bun inside. Their hopes are that this little bun in the oven will stay inside as long as he can. Jesus knows the exact moment of his delivery time. Not a moment sooner we pray.

I began to say a little prayer over her and sweet baby. She said he was moving around so much inside during the prayer. His little ears are developing and he can hear the words beings spoken over him. Baby whispers. One moment in the middle of the prayer as I said Jesus can hear you and the moment you need him just ask Him.. the beeping of the monitor began to sound and the nurse rang in the room Can I help you? At that moment I began to laugh during the prayer and said see, just like that…its that easy. So simple. As you speak out and ask Jesus to help you… or the nurse in this instance… He will listen and help you. He will assure you. She began to smile and could sense sweet peace settle in her hospital room. She trusted that everything would be ok.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God. Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord, for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good…
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord; hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me. {Psalm 86:1-7}

Whatever you have need of today and always. Remember. Just ask Jesus- He can help you!

No question or concern is too big for Him. In the little details and big. Big decisions and small. Trust Him. He will answer you. He will bring answers and deliverance in His own special way. He is listening. He will hear you. He will always come through. It may look a little different than you expected. He is creative in His ways. Trust Him. He loves you and says JUST ASK ME!

Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come {Jeremiah 33:3}
