ASK! Spurgeon quote on prayer and riches

“My Master has such riches that you cannot count them; you cannot guess them, much less can you convey their fullness in words. They are unsearchable! You may look, and search, and weigh, but Christ is a greater Christ than you think Him to be when your thoughts are at their greatest. My Master is more able to pardon than you to sin, more able to forgive than you to transgress. My Master is more ready to supply than you are to ask, and ten thousand times more prepared to save than you are to be saved. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. Your highest estimates will dishonor Him; when you put the crown on His head, you will only crown Him with silver when He deserves gold; when you sing the best of your songs, you will only give Him poor, discordant music, compared with what He deserves, but oh, do believe in Him, that He is a great Christ, a mighty Savior! Great Sinner, come and do Him honor by trusting in Him as a great Savior! Come with your great sins and your great cares, and your great needs! Come, and welcome. Come to Him now, and the Lord will accept you, and accept you without upbraiding you.”

-Charles Spurgeon

This quote has great meaning for me. It is such a great reminder that God is holy. Many times we complain or get upset and even question God about certain things that are going on in our lives before listening to what the Bible says to do: ASK. I need to apply this in my own life more.

Some biblical references:
John 14:13-14
“And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”

Matthew 6:
“…for your Father knows what you need, before you ask Him.”

1 John 5:14-15
“And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.”

Philippians 4:6-7
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
