Asking from a Different Perspective

We ask things of God all the time without having any idea of His perspective. And we call it faith. How can we have faith in God though, if we don't understand who He is and what He represents? He wants us to agree with Him—to say what He says is so, to establish a different reality than the one we experience with our physical senses:
• God is holy
• God's kingdom has come and is here on this earth
• God's will is what I do, just as it is done in Heaven
• God takes care of me each and every day
• I live under God's forgiveness
• I forgive others
• I live free from the fear of temptation, knowing that through His strength I can handle any temptation
• I live free from the fear of evil, knowing that through His presence Satan has nothing to work with and no place to hide
When we understand the nature of God and the nature of our relationship with Him, then and only then can we begin to “ask” of Him what we have any business in asking of Him.
