Matthew 21:22 (KJV) “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
When Shane discovered today’s text, he was so excited that he exclaimed, “oh, finally, I can get all I ever wanted!” Being a very ambitious person, he started asking God for very big things but to his amazement, only very few of the things asked for were actualized, one of such happened when he prayed for supernatural provision so he could help the poor widows in his church. “Why did I get answers to some prayers and not the others? What might be wrong?” He asked.
In a bid to get answers to his questions, he started studying the Bible: knowing the secret of answered prayer was his aim. One of such days, he found Jesus saying, “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work” (John 4:34), then, “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” (John 5:30 KJV). The one that blew his mind was 1 John 5:14, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us”.
Oh! So it is his will that he answers! It was after this discovery that he coined the statement, “His will is superior to my prayers”.
This discovery might be what you need too, when this is well understood, you’ll pray prayers that will always receive answers.
Go into today knowing that the power of faith is unleashed when the will of God is in view. It is faith that helps us to do the will of God. If your faith does not propel you in the direction of God’s will, that faith is not of God.
Prayer: I receive grace to seek, pray and do the will of God only, In Jesus’ name. Amen
