Yes, you shall get the desires of your heart when you ask the Lord for what you need. That's the spiritual part of it. Your chances of receiving what you want also increase dramatically when you ask for things in the natural. That means, we have a greater opportunity of getting closer to greater things when we open our mouths to God and to man. It's amazing how many of us don't use what we have to get what we want. Use your voice to ask. No, God is not a santa claus and no He's not a genie who performs when we rub the bottle. But He is a God, the God, who wants us to seek Him first. That's means uttering words to Him and being led by the holy spirit (that's another blog post though).
The bottom line is that He's God. The one and only. Like no other can or will be. And He wants the best for us. His answer may not be yes, but it may not be no either. It simply may be, later. It may be that He wants us to trust Him even more as Ruler and Guider over our lives and is positioning us nicely for the great things He has for us. That may take us saying more and doing more. He doesn't want us to just accept the mediocre. Asking sometimes involves waiting, but we have to at least ask then wait on Him. He'll answer. Ruth got Boaz because she sacrificed and waited. Esther got the king because she sacrificed and waited. Rahab and her family were spared because she sacrificed and waited.
So, it's quite simple really. Ask and if you're willing to sacrifice and wait, great things will come. I totally believe that.
