1 John 5:1-2
14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.
I truly believe there is a difference between just saying and actually praying. When we pray, we should pray with expectancy. We must believe that what we are praying for will actually happen. No lukewarm prayers, but full on belief.
The one time I prayed with true belief was my sophomore year in college. I had the worst college season possible outside of not even playing. I was down in the dumps and ready to quit, but instead I prayed. I asked God to help me become an all-star that summer in the best college summer league in the country. I knew I couldn’t do it by myself.
In my heart I knew I was doing it for His glory and it’s what got me through every day. I remember hearing my name called and my first thought was God. I started tearing up. I couldn’t even comprehend His power at that moment. I am so thankful God gave me this story to help myself and others ask with expectancy.
God wants to work in your life. He is waiting for you to ask. Ask about that job. Ask about your future. Ask for guidance. Ask for strength. Ask. I believe most things won’t come unless we ask for them. Ask and you shall receive.
What can I start asking God for?
Do I pray with expectancy?
Dear Lord, we are in awe of your power. Help us to have belief in our prayers and belief that You will deliver us. Amen.
Have a great day!
