“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him.” – 1 John 5:14 (KJV)
Do you ever ask anyone for something or to do something that you know they don’t have the capacity to give you or do for you?
If the answer is “no,” think about why.
Many of us probably think like this. We tend to only ask people for things and to do things we know or feel that is within their capacity.
But what if the person tells you “no”? Do you get offended? Do you say, “I won’t be asking them for anything again?”
Well, guess what? We serve a jealous God. We have been instructed to ask God for ANYTHING and we have been promised that whatever we ask for He will give to us according to His will. If you’re ever wondering why you haven’t received in a capacity in which you think you deserve, it may be because you don’t know God’s will in that area, or you have asked someone else to meet the need in that area before asking God. You may then ask: “What is God’s will?”
You may then ask: “What is God’s will?”
God’s will is found in his Word (the scriptures). I first heard Kenneth E. Hagin say, “Faith begins where the will of God is known.” If you don’t know God’s will for your life or what He says concerning various situations you encounter, you’re not going to know what to ask for or have knowledge of what’s already been provided to you through the finished works of Jesus Christ. You will never be able to receive anything from God if you don’t know it’s His will to give it.
Application For The Day:
Seek God’s will for your life. Your entire life depends on it.
Prayer For The Day:
Heavenly Father, I am now confident that whatever I ask you, according to your will, has already been provided for me because you have heard me, in Jesus’ Name.
