Pray According To His Will

Jul 13, 2022

I don't know about you, but when I go to God with my prayers, I have the expectation that He will answer with a yes. How do I know that?

Because before I ever pray for something, I spend much time studying His Word so that I can understand His will. I believe that the Word of God, the Bible, is His will.

I only pray according to His will.

- When I pray, I expect God to answer my prayers.
- I come to God boldly, with confident expectation.

But here's the caveat, when I believe, that is ... have faith, I must trust God for His how and when.

And when I pray for something, I really do believe that I have received at the moment I make the prayer. After that, I wait on God for delivery, placing my complete trust in His how and when.

Mark 11:23-24 AMP - I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea!’ and does not doubt in his heart [in God’s unlimited power], but believes that what he says is going to take place, it will be done for him [in accordance with God’s will]. For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.

Hebrews 11:1-2 AMP - Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. For by this [kind of] faith the men of old gained [divine] approval.

How do you grow your faith? Faith comes by hearing the Word of God. There is a measure of faith already inside you. Remember the mustard seed? Revelation: You gotta plant it for it to grow.

Let me leave you with this simple instruction from Jesus.

Mark 5:36 NIV - Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

Hear the Word. Accept it. Receive it.
