You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!John 14:13-14
Ask In His Name
There are some in this world that take the Bible out of context, especially when it comes to prayer. Some think that God is a genie in which you can just ask Him for whatever you want and He will grant it to you. This is not how God works at all. Sometimes you may not get the answer you want. You may get a “no” or a “wait.” When Jesus says, “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it” it does not mean that we should ask for any material thing we want. Instead, we should make sure our desires align with God’s desires. When that happens, then we can ask for anything in His name because it will be His desires and His will.
Take some time to pray today and ask God to place His desires in your heart, so that you will know what He wants.
A Prayer to Remember
May your desires become my desires. I long for what you long for. Amen.
