Ask, Thank, and Activate

Psalm 104:13 You send rain on the mountains from your heavenly home, and you fill the earth with the fruit of your labor. 14 You cause grass to grow for the cattle. You cause plants to grow for people to use. You allow them to produce food from the earth.

The entirety of Psalm 104 shows God's provision and order for His creation and His people. He has set both natural and spiritual laws into motion.

Too often, we are standing still asking God to do something that He has already provided. If I need light in a house that has electricity, I don't need to ask and then stand around waiting for illumination. I need to go and plug in to the provision.

God is still sovereign, active and merciful, so He brings unexpected blessings. However, most of what we need is already available by asking, thanking and activating God's promises already provided in the Word of God, the Bible.

James put it this way: "But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does." (James 1:25)
