“Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.” John 16:23
“For the Father Himself loves you.” John 16:23
“Before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:24
He that converses much with God in prayer and has childlike confidence in His word shall certainly be heard — and these answers of prayer are undeniable evidence of the truth, faithfulness, and love of God. They also greatly strengthen one’s faith and promote an intimate acquaintance with God. The more we receive, the more we are enlightened to see how much there is still wanting. This stirs us up to more frequent and fervent prayer. And the more we desire (believing that we shall receive it), the more shall we be gratified. Unbelief receives nothing (Matthew 13:58) — but faith opens all the treasures of God and never goes away empty.
My soul, it is in God’s heart to bless you, to make large communications to you; and therefore He has given you so many, such exceeding great and very precious promises. These promises are solemn pledges, given to assure you that God waits to be gracious, delights in mercy, and rejoices over His people to do them good. “Ask,” then, as Jesus bids you, and “receive, that your joy may be full.” Ask in His name and expect for His sake.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
