Trust God’s Will
31st DECEMBER 2021
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” [1 John 5:14 NIV]
Prayer is the way in which we communicate with God as believers. It is how we get to know God’s will for our lives. As believers, the only way to get a positive response to our prayers is if we pray according to the will of God.
The scripture above helps us to clear the misconception that God promises to give us absolutely anything we ask for, no matter what. God acts according to His ways, not ours. He hears our prayers all the time, but we must not be surprised that He responds to those prayers according to His will.
God is a good Father, and so He will never give harmful gifts to His children.
Peter tells us in 2 Peter 2:13 that we have received everything we need for holy living, which means that we have received everything we need to pray in faith, according to His will.
Even as we enter a new year, let us remember to pray according to His will so that we can always be in alignment with His will for our lives.
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the privilege to call on You at any time because You always listen. Help me God to always pray according to Your will. Amen
