1 John 5:14-15.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: 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 what we asked of him.”
The key here is asking in accordance to ‘His Will.” If our will is lined up with His, then we can have all the confidence we need to be bold in our prayer life. God truly instills within His beloved, His plan, His desire, His goal, His direction and His purpose for our lives. If we take the time to be still and listen as He whispers to the innermost part of our being, we will desire to pray for the things that He wishes to bless us with. Isn’t that so exciting? God knows what He wants to do for our benefit and His glory. Prayer releases His power to bring about His will. He is relational to the core and He wants to be asked and He wants to be sought.
In Psalm 31:19 the psalmist speaks of God’s goodness when he says “How great is the goodness You have stored up for those who fear You! You lavish it on those who come to You for refuge.”
God is brilliantly creative, gloriously mysterious and always up to something big. Selfish prayers won’t get past the ceiling, but, as His children, we have the right to boldly seek Him for His direction then simply accept His will and watch as His will, in the form of our petitions, take shape and fall into place precisely on time. Requests are granted and answered prayer becomes reason for praise and thanksgiving!
