For the Love of (Part 3): The nations

Ask.

Seek. Knock. That’s what the Bible says in Matthew 7. We can ask for cars, houses, babies, relationships, success for your business, jobs, etc. Nothing wrong with that, I’m also praying for those things. Interesting about God is that He also wants us to ask for this one thing He loves–the nations.

“Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psalms 2:8 NIV)

But we have to remember that when we ask for certain things there are prerequisites. Like, when we ask for a car–we need to have a driver’s license; when we we want to travel outside the country–we need to have a passport. And when we ask for the nations–we need to have a big heart to love the people–

broken people

selfish people

lost people.

We can’t love the nations if we’re too busy loving ourselves. Are you ready to die to yourself in order to serve others? Are we ready to ask God to have a big heart and a strong faith to love His people? If yes, then what are you waiting for? He’ll give it to you. Go and

Ask.
