“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.” (I John 5:14-15, NKJV)
What a powerful verse of scripture these verses are. We have the assurance that whatever we ask of God, if our petitions are according the His will, God hears and will answer our prayers. What a wonderful truth to know.
Yet, this is the powerful part of these verses. John says, “This is the confidence we have in Him.” Which means, when we pray, we do not have to pray and wonder. We do not have to pray and question whether or not God hears us or will answer us. We can pray in confidence. In fact, we can pray and begin rejoicing because we know we are going to get what I ask. Whenever we pray what is already God’s will, we know, “we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
Seek God’s will for your life today and pray His will. You can pray without doubting when you pray His will. You are assured of what you ask when you pray His will. You can pray and celebrate the arrival of what you are praying for before you receive it when you pray His will. This is CONFIDENT PRAYER.
