Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1 John 5:14-15 New King James Version
Do you notice the important key word in this passage?
It is IF.
In other words we are to pray for Gods will to be done in any situation we are asking help in instead of our will.
Too many people in the Christian community mistakenly pray for our will to be done in a situation instead of Gods will. Sometimes it will not be the answer you want, however God see’s the big picture while we see only the little one.
For example I prayed the Lord bless me with getting a contract and he did not give it to me when I really needed the money.
I was very disappointed.
However, a couple of months later I found out the employer cheated all his employees out of their wages. Boy was I ever glad I did not get that contract.
That is why we must trust the Lord is doing what is right for us even when it does not look like it to us.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4 New International Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be open and obedient to Your wise word even if it is not what the answer is not the one I desire. I humbly request this in the name of He who was obedient to You even to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
