PRAYING ACCORDING TO GOD’S WILL

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

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.

KJV

David wanted a new car because Simon had just bought a car. Since they both finished school the same time, got jobs and got married around the same time, ‘why should Simon have a new car and not me?’ David thought. Simon already had a renewed mind and simply asked God and received a new car because he needed it and the old one was now bad, David on the other hand came to God to ask for a car for entirely different reasons; his motives were wrong. He wondered why God had not answered his prayer the way He did Simon’s.

People do not receive answers to prayers because their motives are not according to the will of God.

If you abide in Christ and his words abide in you, this will cause your will to synchronize with God’s will so that whenever you ask, God always answers. God does not act outside of His will. You cannot walk in the fullness of God’s will if your mind is not renewed to the mind of Christ. God always answers when your request is in accordance with His will. The renewal of your mind is caused by Christ’s words abiding in you and you abiding in Him.

Go into today determined to let the words of Christ abide in you by reading the bible, talking about the word, listening to sermons, audio bibles, praying in the atmosphere of the word etc. Abide in Christ by staying filled with the Holy spirit; let a Holy spirit consciousness permeate your being and constantly speak to yourself (in your heart) in praises to God; speaking to yourselves in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs… (See: Eph 5:18-20).

Prayer: Thank God for giving you access to His presence. Pray that he will help you dwell in His word and help you stay filled with the Spirit. Thank Him for Hearing you. In Jesus name.
