The scripture for today, May 11 (5/11), is 1st Peter 5:11 as found in the New Testament of the Bible: “To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.” God has the power to do more for you than you ever dreamed. He can take you in new directions in your life; arrange for you to meet wonderful people; provide the ability to overcome not-so-good things in your life. All you have to do is ask. Perhaps more than once. Perhaps many times. But he wants you to ask. Why? Parents sometimes tell their children “no” the first time they ask for something. Maybe it’s because the child needs to find our for him/herself how badly s/he wants it. It’s in the asking that they find out. So God waits for the request. Sometimes the request never comes. And so the blessing never comes. Remember, God has the power. He may have something special in mind for you. So ask.
