Ask and You Shall Receive Bible Quotes With a Twist


Recently, Dorothy H. Beale, a subscriber of our mailing list, sent me a collection of “ASK” quotes from the Bible. These are all quotes that have to do with “asking.” Every time the word “ask” was used, Dorothy put that word ASK in ALL CAPS.

Here’s something to think about as you read these… Most people who read Jesus’s quotes in the Bible think of the man who said them, the human being known as “Jesus.” But Jesus did not see himself as simply a human being. Jesus knew that he was an eternal Spirit, temporarily having a human experience, and that, in Truth, he was One with God and All That Is, just like you are.

When Jesus spoke, he spoke the words of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Consciousness within all of us that reminds us of Truth. The Holy Spirit’s awareness is within all of us and is part of the very fabric of our being.

As you read these quotes, read them as if the Holy Spirit is speaking to you personally. Read them as if the conversation is between you and the Holy Spirit within you.
