“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
1 John 5:14-15
Many times we lack confidence that God will actually do what He says that He will do. We can hear the Word of God and believe it, but many times we don’t truly receive it by walking in it. As time passes by and we don’t see our prayers answered in the natural we begin to doubt. Our assurance that God will do it turns into “maybe He’ll do it” or “maybe it is not God’s will after all.” God wants us to have total confidence in Him.
Mark 9:23 says that all things are possible for those who believe. We need to have the confidence that God does answer us. Unfortunately for most of us, we begin to keep our eyes on the negative so much that we forget about the power of God in our lives.
Satan is good at deceiving us and making us begin to doubt what God has done. We have to fight the good fight of faith to keep on believing that God does hear us when we ask according to His will. When He hears us He releases the answer (Daniel 10:12-13).
I want to encourage you to believe God and not let your faith waver (Mark 11:24). Whatever it is that you are asking God according to His will know that He answers.
