Can I Get In On This?


Most people think faith only works for those who are really good, for those who are really close to God. Although it does help to be close to God it is however, not a requirement for faith. All you need is the faith of a mustard seed. So if your question is "Can I get in on this too?" the answer is yes. I bet you're wondering how this works then. Let me explain it to you.
Pay close attention to what the scripture says:

Proverbs 10:22 NKJV
The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.

It is not painful or difficult to be blessed by God. He wants you to enjoy life. God is not looking to ruin your day. He is not out to get you and, most important of all, he is not setting you up to fail. Most people think he just wants to punish us. Contrary to that, he wants to bless an protect you. I know that many lesson from our childhood gave us the impression that God punished us at every turn for every little tiny thing. If that were the case no one would ever have a good life. You are not the only one who makes mistakes, we all do. God wants you to understand that he wants to bless you. If all he did was punish you, then who would love God? Who is perfect all the time? Who is without sin? He himself state:

Matthew 7:11 NIV
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

Notice he does not say to those who are spiritual giants, or exceedingly holy, or anything else like that. It simply states "to those who ask him." He will not discriminate. He will provide your desires. Notice the previous verse where Jesus states:

Matthew 7:8 NIV
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Use that faith of yours and knock, ask and, look to get in on this.
Also, always remember to live write.
