Probably one of most misunderstood teachings in the bible refers to asking and receiving. There are actually guiding principles and context in their application. Jesus told the disciples they could have anything they ask in His name to do even greater works than what He did so that God may be #glorified. As Jesus glorified God with His life (John 17:4), our lives and what we ask for must be for the works and glory of God. (John 14:12-14). Jesus also explained that when we are unfair and hypocritical towards our brothers and sisters, we cannot expect God to reward us. We are to be ourselves how we expect others to be for God to give us good things (Matt 7:1-12). God also cannot meet our desires when we hold un-forgiveness towards others. You see, God forgives us only if we forgive others and He can’t reward someone He cannot forgive (Mark 11:24-25). Jesus also told the disciples that 'whatsoever' they ask of God, He will give to them if they bear fruit (John 15:16). You see, when we ask God out of our fleshly desires, out of envy or out of our relationship with this world, we ask amiss and so we receive not (James 1:1-5). We are meant to separate ourselves from the world and not to be more embroiled with the things of this world (2 Cor 6:14-18). God does not give in to such requests. These are just a few of the many situations explained in the bible where we may not receive what we ask for. In this video, we see asking and receiving in operation. Kevin asks for God's healing, deliverance and impartation for the church body, doing the ‘greater works’ so that God may be glorified. And indeed people receive and give glory to God (Psalm 50:15) #Hallelujah #ThankyouJesus We also see that God meets Kevin's requests as he asks in faith, without wavering (James 1:6) Those who came forward for prayer, came before God in humility and therefore also receive God's grace upon them (1 Peter 5:5). John tells us that whatsoever we ask, we will receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. (1 John 3:22) And Jesus also told the #disciples they should ask, so that their joy may be full (John 16:24). Have you asked?
