“If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14).Text — John 14:12-14
The life of a believer, especially a young one, is often characterized by disappointment, discouragement, setback and anxiety. However, George Mueller says, “The beginning of anxiety is the bend of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” We often feel bad and sorrowful when our expectations are not met. Sometimes we think no one cares about our worries and feelings. However, in our Bible text today, Jesus assures, “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.”
Friend, what are your fears, hopes and aspirations? When you believe in Christ, you will be able to exercise your faith in God and present your needs to Him with the expectation that He will answer you. This belief gives you confidence and assurance in God. Indeed, you are not a believer in God until you put your trust and confidence in His word, wisdom, love, promises and past miracles. Make sure you act now and take Him at His word; surely you will have testimonies to tell.
He will answer you
Faith is now!
Prayer for today
Heavenly Father, let my faith stand at all times, in Jesus’ name.
