How often is it when someone is telling us a story that we just want them to skip to the end? That would be dangerous to do with this verse and yet, sadly, many have. We read that we can ask what we desire and it will be done for us, but there is a stringent condition to that promise. We must not only have our hearts occupied with Christ but our lives must be regulated by the Scriptures. When we know the Word of God, we will know the will of God and in His will, we can ask those things that are in our hearts.
When our hearts are filled with Jesus and His Word dictates our lives, our first desire will be to have more of Him. And the more we get of Him, the more we’ll ask according to His will. What a glorious exchange.
In His Word and His will,
Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
