In other words, did you get what you went after through the wrong channels, and then later in your remorse, make a request to be forgiven for what you did? And I’m not talking things like calling someone fat, ugly or whatever you may have called them, and all of that is bad in itself; and I’m not talking about taking the last piece of pie from the fridge that you know was waiting there for Uncle Bud; and I am definitely not talking about missing Church one Sunday to meet a client on the golf course; oh I am sorry, to meet the client on the golf course for a beeni meeting at service time. Oh no, I am talking about one of them things that has a pinch or two of evil in it; hurt in matters that concerns the heart, the money, and people that are near and dear to you. Once we get to heaven, it maybe story telling going on about the GOAT dress in good, but can put out a pinch or two of evil around the place with the best of them. One of the first names we may hear about will be without a doubt, the Great King David; now there as I am told in scripture, was a man after God’s on heart. And we found out that he was after a lot more than God’s heart. I bet at the time the King was going through the wrong channels to get what he wanted, he probably didn’t know that he had ask for, without asking for, a difficult thing. King David whole life was riddled by the difficult things that he received, without asking for, during the very moment that he was asking for them. The great David Copperfield, I know you know who he is, but there are one or two around the bend who do not know abut the great magician; well he had nothing on king David’s ability to not be asking for difficult things to appear, and low and behold, they would just appear like magic. The big problem is that we are not given an itemized list of what we might have to pay it with when we go through the wrong channels to get what we want: so we end up asking for, without asking for, a difficult thing.
We are all just like king David to some degree, especially me, we have steered down an unclear path before to find out that we had ask for, without asking for, a difficult thing. The thing that makes the not asked for difficult thing so difficult, is that it will probably require one of our bucket list items just to cover the cost: now that is what really makes what you ask for, without asking for, a difficult thing. On one occasion of King David’s asking for a difficult thing, where things escalated to the point of him having blood on his hand trying to finish a plan that did not come together. I don’t believe that he ever really wanted to have his friend killed, but because his cover up plan didn’t work on this friend of honor, having his blood on his hand cost him the building of the House of God. One thing that King David wanted as much, or more than any thing else that he had done for God, was to build a temple in honor of God. Can you imagine, and we do it from time to time ourselves, how painful it must have been on King David to come ask God to not let him do the thing that he really wanted to do, and had been told by God at one time that he could do it. You know how we tell the kids, sure you can go to the event with your friend, and before the day comes, they mess that all up so badly, and they never make it to that once in a life time event. Ah, I was waiting for someone to say just that, and what did they just say? The person said that not building the temple was King David’s punishment from God, and not a request from King David to self punish himself for doing so wrong. Thank you for presenting that way of thinking; however, it is that way of thinking that is going to allow me to show you how to see it in the way that the Father sees it. You see, this is how you ask for with God, without asking for with God, a difficult thing; in this case, King David as well as you and I, we come to God by our actions, and we allow our actions to ask on our behalf if we could not build his temple, or if we could not do one of the things in him in which we really had our mind set on doing. The way it works with God, when you go through the wrong channel to get what you want, you will be forgiven if you ask, but your actions must pay the piper, and it is by your actions in which you did ask God to take something away to cover your deed. And What you You Ask For, Without Asking For, It Was A Difficult Thing? So Stop asking for, without asking for, and go through the right channels.
