1 John 05:14-15 (NKJV)
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
The Saint is designed to receive answers to prayers. Selah! It is not in God’s agenda that one should spend so much time and energy in prayers and gain so little from it. He is not unjust. Our lead verse points us to a lasting truth on prayer. It renders ”…if we ask anything according to His will…” So the problem is not in asking, the problem is asking according to His will. We can never ask for anything according to the will of God and fail to receive it.
Beloved, refuse to spend time in prayer before you understand the will of God concerning a particular matter because then it will be a waste of time. However, you can decide to know and understand the will of God at all times and pray according to it. You understand the will of God by constantly interacting with the Word. Commune with the Word and understand His will and you will receive answers to whatever you ask! Amen!
FURTHER READING: James 04:03a (NKJV) “You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss…”
“We can never ask for anything according to the will of God and fail to receive it.”
CALL TO ACTION
I will seek to understand the will of God concerning all that pertains to my life so that whenever I pray I have the confidence that whatever I ask for is granted.
