In "A Christmas Story" a young boy named Ralphie wants nothing more in the world than a Red Ryder 200 shot range model air rifle for Christmas. When he finally mentions it to his mother, she responds with the famous line, "You'll shoot your eye out!" Is that how you feel God responds when you ask for things? Have you reached the point where you don't even want to ask because you just don't think he's there or will really respond? This sermon looks at Matthew 7:7-11 and dives into how we are to understand God's willingness to give us what we ask for.
