Trust God’s Word Today.

(1 John 5:14; KJV) "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to HIS WILL, he heareth us”. In this verse we read that we can make any request; as long as it is in accordance with God’s will. This means that we need to find out from the word what God’s will is. If we find that something is definitely God’s will, then we can pray with confidence that our prayer will be answered.

However, the apostle James warns us that if our prayers are selfish and greedy prayers they may not be answered (James 4:3). Having checked our motivation for praying, we need to follow this other instruction found in John’s gospel about prayer that we must ask in the name of Jesus. “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14).

The apostle James wrote, in his epistle, that: “yet ye have not, because ye ask not” (James 4:2). God wants us to ask him for what we need, because he delights in giving us the desires of our hearts (Ps 37:4). Find his promise for your situation and trust God today. “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24).

Praying the desires of your heart

Prov. 10:24 (KJV). “The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desires of the righteous shall be granted. “The word “desire” there means to wish or long for. So, according to this, if righteous men or women have a strong desire for something (which would obviously need to be in line with God’s word) then God will grant that desire (1 John 5:14-15).

That reminds me of another verse along the same lines, Psalm 37:4: “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”. There is a condition there though; we need to “delight” ourselves in the Lord. We do that by spending time with him; worshiping, praying, seeking him and spending time in the word.

In the New Testament we read that if we pray according to God's will, he hears us and answers our prayers (1 John 5:14). The apostle Luke assured us that God will answer the prayers of his chosen ones (Luke 18:1-8). If we pray to the Father in Jesus name the father will give us what we ask: “Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:23-24). Wow, that our joy may be full. I like that, how about you?

Prayer

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and I will look up" (Ps 5:3; KJV). Here’s the best way to start your day; this verse perfectly illustrates what prayer is; a two-way conversation with God. King David prayed to God and looked to him for his reply.

You don’t have to follow any set rules for prayer, and you don’t need to try and pray like some other person that you admire; God just wants us to pray from our heart and be ourselves; that simple!

We also know that Jesus spent a lot of time in prayer, and if it was important for him, then how much more so for us. We also learn from John16:23 that we should pray to God the Father in Jesus name; and if we pray according to God's will then we will receive what we ask for. (1 John 5:14,15).

There are many positive results from developing a prayer life, the main one being that we will get to know God better and we will therefore become more like him.

Pray and ask God who to send this on to. All right reserved.

The Name of Jesus

"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth" (Phil 2: 9-10; KJV).

The name of Jesus is higher than any other name; that means anything else that can be named - any kind of problem, any kind of illness, any kind of anything - must bow to the name of Jesus. The word "name" in Greek means not just a person's name but also their character and authority.

That is why our Lord told us to pray in the name of Jesus (John 14:13-14; John 16:24). He actually said he would do whatever we ask when we pray in the name of Jesus and that we would be full of joy as a result.

Peter did just that in Acts 3:6 when he commanded a lame man to be healed in the name of Jesus: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk”. In Acts 3:16 Peter added the it was through faith in the name of Jesus that the lame man was healed.

We can command demons to leave in Jesus name, sickness to leave, relationships to be restored and so on. There is power in the name of Jesus. Use the name of Jesus today with the authority that is behind that name and expect results.
