Encouragement

We asked God for encouragement . . . and we have definitely gotten it in the last couple of days. Why are we always so slow to ask? I’ve been reading through the prophets and one part jumped out at me the other day. Essentially, God says to one of his prophets, “tell the people to start praying; I’m ready to bless them now.” God could have just poured out his blessings . . . and sometimes he does . . . but so often, he just waits until we ask . . .

  1. Anyone know where that precise verse is? I’m reading through the prophets chronologically — very neat — but it means that I’m not always sure which book of the Bible I’m currently in. And, although that verse stuck with me, I didn’t make a point of noting the reference 😦
