"THAT NIGHT GOD APPEARED TO SOLOMON AND TOLD HIM, 'ASK ME FOR ANYTHING, AND I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU!'" II CHRON. 1:7 TLB
So, how would you like to have God offer "ANYTHING" to you simply for the asking? He will, you know... IF! How do I know this to be true, you ask? Well, first of all God's Word declares - "that God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10:34 KJV). Now, stay with me because another KEY to your need is on the way! Jesus confirms this truth in no uncertain terms:
"Ask, and it shall be given unto you... For every one that asketh receiveth..." Matt. 7:7-8
Jesus goes on to make this promise even more emphatic:
"If his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?" Matt. 7:9-10
Finally, to make it crystal clear, Jesus concludes this promise by saying:
"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children..." Matt. 7:11
Now, here it is - the first part of your need, your miracle:
"How much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" Matt. 7:11
Yes, in the spirit I can already hear your cry, "But I HAVE ASKED, I have SOUGHT, I have KNOCKED, but still no answer!" Believe me, I have been there too! But, hold on - another KEY to that unanswered prayer is coming - please read on! This is a BIG ONE! Again, from Jesus' own Word:
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness..." Matt. 6:33
Wow! Here it is - take hold -
"And all these things shall be added unto you." Matt. 6:33b

"But I HAVE sought first the Kingdom of God." You say, "I'm saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit! And still no answer to that need, that life or death miracle!"
Now, dear Partner, let us turn that KEY to that locked door once and for all!
So, what exactly is this "KINGDOM OF GOD" that we are to seek first? Very simply: THE ETERNAL LOST SOULS of humanity! Jesus said, again:
"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that [souls] which was lost." Luke 19:10
So, have you, have I, sought to build HIS glorious and eternal Kingdom? To make it clearer still -
HAVE YOU BROUGHT ANY SOUL INTO THE KINGDOM?
Remember, it is only soul winners that can claim,"ALL THESE THINGS (NEEDS)." Jesus proves it again in John 15:
"I have chosen you." Why? "That ye should go and bring forth fruit [souls] and that your fruit should remain..." Here it finally, is:
"So that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, HE MAY GIVE IT TO YOU!" John 15:16
So, how do we win souls and bear fruit for God's Kingdom? Arthur Blessitt simply said, "Jesus loves you" to the well known rock star Barry McGuire, and that simple seed burned in Barry's heart and finally brought him to faith in Christ. The Holy Spirit will open any number of opportunities for you to be that witness which will bear fruit for the Kingdom. My angel Jan has told hundreds of her miracle healing from cancer! Many have come to faith because of it!

Solomon proved it by giving God his largest offering ever to build the Great Temple. And, yes, that Temple was God's Old Testament witness to all the nations of the one true and living God. By the way, when Solomon finished the Great Temple, God appeared to him again and said:
"Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer [request] that is made in this place [the Temple]." 2 Chron. 7:15
You see why? Because Solomon had built God's soul winning Temple and had also given a gift 100,000 times greater than his first gift!
Oh, dear Partners, do you see it? God is saying to you soul winners just as he said to Solomon -
"NOW ASK ME FOR ANYTHING AND I WILL GIVE IT TO YOU." II Chron. 1:7
Give your best gift to build His Kingdom and you will hear the "click" as you turn these keys in your locked doors!
