God has been really showing me some neat things in His Word recently regarding faith. In Hebrews 11, we find that faith is based on a convincement that comes from God’s Word. We have so many examples in the Bible of men and women who did something because they had God’s word on it. 1Jn 5:14 -15 says. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
We learn what God’s will is by the Word of God. So if we ask according to God’s Word, then, we should be able to pray fully expecting that we will receive that request! If we as Christians were to get ahold of this simple truth, how radically would it change our prayer lives?
