    Higher Everyday Devotional By Pastor W.F Kumuyi THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2017- DEMAND YOUR DESIRE


    DEMAND YOUR DESIRE



    BIBLE TEXT: I KING 3:5
    "In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, Ask what I shall give thee" (I King 3:5).

    A story was told of a sitting Governor in an oil rich West African Country whose old time friend made frantic efforts to meet, and when he eventually met him, the Governor asked him, "What can I do for you?" The friend replied to the amazement of the Governor, "Please give me 100,000 (in the local currency).

    The Governor gave him his request, but instructed that the friend should never be allowed to see him again for demanding for something too meagre. Make your request big before God, because He can do all things. Someone wrote, "Nothing lies beyond the reach of prayer except that which lies outside the will of God."

     The Almighty God gave King Solomon a unique opportunity; a blank check, "Ask what I shall give thee" and Solomon made a request that "pleased" the Almighty God: he asked for an "understanding heart," "a discerning mind" for good government. God gave him more than he demanded. My dear, ensure you are born again then tell God your desire. He will do it.

    Challenge: God grants the requests of His children.

    Prayer: Oh God, give me the grace to ask wisely.

    Quote: Make your request big before God.

    Bible Reading in one Year: 1Kings 3:5-15; Mark 11:24
