Now that’s called Faith
1 John 5:14-15 “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.”
Have faith that Jesus is working for you, and that He wants nothing but the best in you!
John 16:23-24 ” And in that day you will ask me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your Joy may be full.”
John 14:13-14 “And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, that the father may be glorified in the son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
You see, Jesus Christ wants us to call upon his promises with confidence, believing that we will receive what we have asked for, so that the joy the enemy has stolen from us, through our many different trials may be restored to us, so that through us we will glorify God and not the enemy.
He lives to be our endorsement! He wants us to use His name and declare the works of the enemy dead. He his given us access to the entire kingdom of God. A kingdom with nothing but Joy, and love. A kingdom without sickness or loss. He has given us authority to use his name to get into any closed door in His kingdom!
Matthew 16:19 “And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven, & whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Luke 10:9 “Behold I give you the authority to trample on serpents & scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, & nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
He delegates us this authority, and the weapon that is the power of His name, because upon resurrection he was put in the highest place with Authority over every principality and power, might and dominion not only from this age now but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet. (Ephesians 1:20-22)
He gives us the same authority that he has, and that authority is only found in his Name. The enemy and his works aren’t afraid of us, but they are afraid of Jesus. Because he won the battle and will when the time is right, banish them all to hell. So don’t be afraid to use the name of Jesus. He has endorsed you and will until the day you go to join him in the kingdom of heaven.
So don’t be afraid of your situations. Through his name, you have everything you will ever need! So….
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
So go on, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. And am I ever glad, that I know Jesus!
