Then what? I’ve asked, believing I will be answered, but … After we have asked Jesus for whatever it is we’ve asked Him for, not only do we need to believe that He will answer, we need to be receptive to His answers. If we are not on the “right channel” when He answers, we may miss the very results or information we are expecting from Him. I remember the song recorded by Ray Stevens and others, from quite a number of years ago, “turn your radio on.” It goes as follows:Welcome and listen into a radio station Where the mighty hosts of heaven sing Turn your radio on – turn your radio Turn your radio on – turn your radio on If you wanna feel those good vibrations Coming from the joy that His love can bring Turn your radio on – turn your radio on Turn your radio on chorus: Turn your radio on – oh yes, turn your radio on And listen to the music in the air – and listen to the music in the air Turn your radio on – oh yes, turn your radio on And glory share – and glory, glory share Turn your lights down low – oh yes, turn your lights down low And listen to the master’s radio – and listen to the master’s radio Get in touch with God – get in touch with God Turn your radio on – turn your radio on don’t you know that everybody is a radio receiver All you gotta do is listen for the call Turn your radio on – turn your radio Turn your radio on – turn your radio on If you listen in you will be a believer Leanin’ on the truth that will never fall Get in touch with God – get in touch with God Turn your radio on (chorus) Our “radio” is not of much use to us if it is not turned on and tuned in to the right station. Consider, once again, the story in my previous post. That man believed God would help him, however, he either did not have his “radio” on, or he was not tuned into the right “channel” to receive God’s communication. Thus he totally missed God’s help, probably mumbling and grumbling because “God isn’t even helping me,” when actually He had helped numerous times. It is important, therefore, to ask, believing, in Jesus’ name, for whatever we want/need but not stop there. We also need to be receptive to His answers in our lives and in the lives of others for whom we’ve asked something of Jesus.
