For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened. – Matthew 7:8 WEB.
Isn’t it just amazing that there is nothing that Jesus has ever prayed for or asked from the Father that He never received? Every petition that was rendered to GOD by Jesus was always granted. Every time I would think of this I would have what I normally call “holy envy” and I would wish that whatsoever I ask of the Father I would receive without sweat. The word of GOD would then remind me, “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours,” Mark 11:24.
I would like to believe that our Lord had confidence that most Christians are lacking hence we sometimes ask and do not receive. The confidence that Jesus had was that He knew the will of the Father, He knew that what He was asking from the Father was within His will and therefore there was no way He could be denied. If you knew the will of GOD for your life it would be easy for you to believe for the greater things that are within His will for you.
You would never believe GOD for a mansion at your lowest if you don’t believe that it’s His will for your life. How then do we aid ourselves from this unfortunate circumstance? By determining to know the will of GOD for our lives. Pray without ceasing that GOD reveals His heart to you regarding your life. It would be very much easy for you to pray and believe for something that you know very well that it is what GOD wants for you.
