God knows what you need before you ask,
but He can only act on what you need,
… as you respond to His Word,
and when you ask Him according to His Word.

When Jesus encountered blind Bartimaeus,
Jesus obviously knew Bartimaeus was blind,
… and that he wanted to receive his sight.
Yet…

      Jesus answered and said to him,
      “What do you want Me to do for you?”
      The blind man said to Him,
      “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”
      Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way;
      your faith has made you well.”
      And immediately he received his sight
      and followed Jesus on the road.
      Mark 10 51-52

Why did Jesus want to be asked?

      Because God created us with a free will,
      … so unless we use our free will
      … to ask and allow God to do His will in our lives,
      He cannot and He will not work in our lives!

Therefore be sure to answer Jesus’ question to YOU,
what do you want Me to do for you?
So that He can …

      supply all your need
      according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
      Philippians 4 19
