Ask Great Things…

Posted on May 1, 2020 by Catey Stover in Victory Call

“I ask great things of a great God.” The Valley of Vision pg. 6

When was the last time you asked a great thing of God? Something you CAN’T do, make happen or accomplish? Something that, humanly speaking, is downright impossible?
Are you praying big prayers? I’m not suggesting an arrogant heart or demanding anything of God but rather a humble request made to a great God fully aware of His greatness, goodness and sovereignty.

Every time you pray for an unsaved family member or friend, you are praying a great prayer. For any soul to be saved, God must act by His Spirit to regenerate that one’s dead spirit. There is nothing they can say or do, there is nothing you can say or do to make that happen. When that loved one comes to Christ it is a result of the working of the Holy Spirit giving them life leading to their faith response. That is a great prayer – let us never forget we are asking God a humanly impossible thing when we pray for one’s soul.

When we ask God great things we need to persist in hope, believing Him for His promises and goodness and that He is able to do abundantly above all we ask or imagine.

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Ask great things of a great God.
