Ask In Faith

Ask, and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him, that knock it shall be opened (Mathew 7:7-8).

 In the Christian community, you will sometimes hear, if you pray more than once for a thing, then you don’t have faith;  this misleading information has made many stop contending with God until they receive an answer. In this Scripture, Jesus is telling us to be persistence in our pursuant of God. It’s not like God doesn’t hear our prayers, and it may get discouraging to continue to do right, praying consistently and not see tangible results,  but that’s the time we need to continue to pursue Him.

We shall reap the benefits of our prayer if we faint not. God has instructed us to delight ourselves in Him and as we delight ourselves in Him, He would give us the desires of our heart. To delight in someone means to experience great pleasure and joy in his or her presence, we get into God’s presence by prayer and praise. We are the children of God and just like in the natural when our children ask for something, if the answer is no, they will return and ask again; it should be the same way when we go to our Father in prayer; we pray until we  receive an answer to what we’re praying for.  As born- again Christians, we never ask the Father for something that is contrary to the Word of God, so when we pray and we pray according to God’s Word, we will receive an answer. Jesus said, whatever we ask the Father in His name, that would He do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. When you pray, believe God will hear and answer your prayer, ask in faith.

When we go to God in doubt and unconfessed sin our prayers will not be answered. If you need to confess your sin and ask God for forgiveness do so and pray in faith that your prayer has been heard and will be answered.  The adversary wants you to live in doubt and shame, but Jesus came so that you can have life and have it more abundantly.

Building A Spiritual Foundation

He is like a man which built a house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock; and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it for it was founded upon a rock – Luke 6:48.

In order to live a successful Christian life, it is determined by the foundation of what we have been taught. Many built their foundation on everything except the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles. Sometimes people build the foundation they learned from their parents or grandparents from other professing Christians. If the foundation is not built on the Word of God there will be a flaw.

Converting Souls

Let him know, that he which converteth (turns) the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins – James 5:20.

It has been a disagreement among the Christian community whether or not a person can lose their salvation, but it’s one thing for sure, whether one believes he or she can’t lose their salvation, if they continue to practice sin without repentance, they’re jeopardizing their relationship with God and entrance to heaven. They may be saved from receiving the recompense of their sins during their lifetime, but the Word of God has promised, no sin will enter into heaven (Revelation 21:8). Read More
