Therefore, I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (KJV) Mark 11:24
In the above verse, apostle Mark is encouraging all of us to develop a faith that is as powerful and strong as seen in the verse itself.
The context of this verse is more profound than how it reads. It is a promise of God combined with the power of prayers. The prayers make the promises of Christ come alive in our lives. However, whatever we ask, we must do so with the right intentions and within the will of God. This is the confidence that the children of God must have in Him that whatever we ask in prayer, according to His will, shall be granted. Therefore, let us desire and seek after the things that God desires for us.
It is such a wonderful assurance to know that the Lord we serve hears us and takes great delight in fulfilling the deepest desires of our hearts.
Today, let us all make a conscious decision to strengthen our faith in the Almighty and believe Him for all the miracles that He is about to do in our lives. Let us praise Him today for the things He is about to do tomorrow. The next time we kneel down to pray and place our supplication under His mighty feet, lets just believe that it is done, in the name of Jesus.
