“I am telling you the truth: those who believe in me will do what I do—yes,
they will do even greater things, because I am going to the Father.
And I will do whatever you ask for in my name,
so that the Father’s glory will be shown through the Son.
If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it” John 14:12-14
Wow! Whatever I ask for in Jesus name—there has to be a catch? Right? Or we would all be rich as kings on the beach in the south of France—who would want the Bahamas if they could have the south of France?
- What you ask has to line up with what God promises. If you do not know what God promises, you do not know what’s available. What does God promise? Remember that song “Make Me Glad”? “You are my shield, my strength, my portion, deliver, my shelter, strong tower, my ever present help in time of need?”
If you do not know what God wants to do for you, how can you ask God to do it for you and have FAITH and HOPE that it will be done? God’s words are not only an instruction manual for how He works, but they are also a love letter to His children. Maybe you are missing out on what he has planned for you because you have not opened his “e-mails.”
Dear Father, I thank you for everything you have done for me. I thank you for what you’re going to do for me. I thank you that today my body will be stronger, my mind will be shaper, and that not only will I be blessed by my family, but I will be a blessing to them, too. I pray that today I will let somebody know about the love of Jesus Christ either through words or actions. I thank you for answer my prayer because Jesus said you would—it lines up with your promises for it is in His name I pray.
