God Thinking X - Deep Calls Unto Deep 8

"Matthew 20:33 V33 “They say unto Him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.”

Is it spiritual to ask for something for yourself?  Of course it is.  And you should do more of it, according to the will of God.
Matthew 20:34
V34 “So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.”
Jesus opened their eyes.  I don’t believe that crying out is some kind of spiritual formula to get what you want from God, but I do believe that there have been many times in your life when you were in the presence of God and did not cry out because  there were people around you or because it might embarrass you, and because of it, you missed a brief and intimate encounter with God.  And you missed what could have been yours if you had cried out and asked.

God says ask.  God wants you and I to reveal your deepest thoughts and express your most precious goals to Him, (not so that God will then know what He doesn’t know, but so that you can show your love and trust and dependency in God.  Then God can fill your tomorrow’s with today’s prayer of faith.
