St. John 15.7: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall Ask What Ye Will, and It Shall Be Done Unto You. 8. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit: so shall ye be my disciples. 9. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue in my love. 10. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in His love. 11. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12. This is my Commandment, that ye love one another as I have loved you. 13. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his Friends. 14. Ye Are My Friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.
What a privilege it is to walk to with Jesus! On in the next verse he says something so beautiful, “Henceforth I call you NOT Servants…..but I have called you FRIENDS. Wow, do you realize you are His Friend, and He is Your Friend? and on in the next verse after, he reiterates that Any thing we Ask of the Father in His Name, He may Give It You!! It is a wonderful relationship with Jesus, He does not Lord over us, nor does He oppress us, nor hurt us. But he wants our Joy to be full!!, We also have the right to ASK in His Name, of the Father, and it shall be given to us. Praise God, just some thoughts for the day, God Bless You, in Jesus Name, Amen. P.S. So Ask today, that ye might receive! Write down your requests of the Father this year, and examine how many requests were answered by this time next year! You just might be surprised.
