Whose Prayer Is Answered?

FEBRUARY 03, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    WOW! What a powerful verse. In addition, what a misunderstood verse this has been. Too many preachers and teachers today take this verse out of context and tell people if you just believe hard enough you can have anything. However, what if I as a Christian, believe with all my heart that you would squander any wealth God might give you. It is my true belief that wealth would cause you to take your eyes off God and instead trust in the wealth. Therefore, really believing this I pray and ask God to withhold wealth from you for your own good. You, on the other hand, as a Christian really believe just the opposite. Therefore, you pray and ask God to bless you so you can use the wealth for His honor and glory. Which prayer will be answered? We both believe and pray for what we think is good for you.

    To understand this you need to read a couple of verses before today’s verse. Mark 11:22 Jesus begins this conversation by saying, “Have faith in God.” Jesus is trying to help us understand that we need to believe in God, and desire what He desires. Even if it looks impossible, you can believe what He has said. Believe your sins have been forgiven when you trust in Jesus and His blood for salvation. Believe Jesus is faithful to carry out everything He says. Believe your soul’s destiny is heaven as He has said. Believe what God believes.

    So, in the scenario we laid out, whose prayer would have been answered? That is easy. It is the prayer that God knows will glorify Him. He always does what’s right.    

 

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    The foundation to answered prayer is salvation. The ultimate will of God is that none should perish and all should come to repentance. If you believe what God says about this and trust in His Son Jesus for salvation, you can and will be saved. Believe those promises about your soul from God and you shall have them. It all begins with faith in God.
