To receive what you asked requires something on your part. In the September 29 devotional several Bible verses are listed concerning asking and receiving. Do you notice this principle in each of these verses?
Matthew 21:22, your asking requires faith that your prayer life is something Jesus hears, is capable of answering, and will answer.
John 14:13, your asking should ultimately result in God being glorified.
John 15:7, your asking requires that you incorporate the Bible into your life.
John 16:24, your asking requires that you ask in Jesus’ name.
I John 5:14-15, your asking requires confidence in your prayer and that you ask for God’s will above your own.
Jesus says if you ask, you receive.
Get lined up with God’s plan!
God of Creation, I want whatever I ask for to ultimately glorify You. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ knows what my asking requires—He teaches me!
