“I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:13)
Dear friend, the promise verse for today is from John 14:13, “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” Whenever we read this verse we feel so happy. We think we can ask anything to the Lord and He will give whatever we ask. We also read in Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” We should always remember to find delight in the Lord. Only when we delight ourselves in the Lord, God promises to give the desires of our heart.
What does it mean to delight ourselves in the Lord? We have to enjoy His presence and feel His love. When we do that in our lives we show Him that we give complete control of our life into His hands. We would say, “Lord take control. Whatever You desire let it happen in my life.” We say so because we know that the Lord will do everything for our good only. When we have that belief we won’t feel like asking anything to Him for He will only give the best for us.
Ever since I was a little child I was very fond of dogs. I loved dogs a lot. I always wanted a golden retriever. I asked my parents for a golden retriever to have it inside our house. But we knew how hard it is to maintain a dog. A golden retriever sheds its hair everywhere and it is difficult to maintain. Most of the time I was at school or away at college so we couldn’t get a golden retriever. But after I got married my husband got me one. I am able to be with it all the time. This was just a small wish. But even that God granted it to me at the right time. Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” So when we leave everything in God’s hand, the Lord will give the right thing at the right time. But that doesn’t mean we should stop asking Him. The Lord wants to speak to you and have a close communion with you. So whatever you desire tell Him for He is willing to listen and He will give the best in your life. Believe this word and thank the Lord today.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I believe You will grant all the wishes in my life. Whether it is a small wish or a life changing decision I know You will give me only the best, Father. Make everything beautiful in Your time. I commit my life into Your hands. Do wonders in my life.
In Your precious name, I pray. Amen.
