Just Ask!

“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do┬áit.” (John 14:12-14 NIV)

Whoever believes–will do–even greater things! Do we really believe what Jesus said? And if we do, are we doing the greater things? Are people being healed–supernaturally–because of what we do? Are we living an abundant life and blessing those around us with instruction and guidance? Are we teaching The Word and people are receiving it–getting ready to march onto the battlefield, armed, and fully prepared for victory in this spiritual warfare? Are we introducing people to our Risen Savior by how we live, not what we say?

If we’re not doing greater things, why aren’t we? Is it the environment of unbelief or our own lack of faith? Have we not studied the Word enough to understood how God will use us to do great things? Or is it that we are so consumed with desire to pacify people and fit in with the crowd that we ignore God speaking to us and through us?

We have all been given the gift of the Holy Spirit–to guide, instruct, correct, and supernaturally do–all we need to do, but if we never access the power that has been given, we will never see the greater things accomplished in our lives.

Do we not understand that in order to fulfill our destiny according to God’s plans, all we need to do is ask? But when we ask, in Jesus’ name, we must believe that all He says is true and will come to pass.

Father, we thank You for the gift of grace, salvation, favor, mercy, and love. We ask You for direction in doing the greater things that You would have us do, so You might receive the glory for all we do. We ask for supernatural healing of bodies of all who believe in You. We ask for wisdom to use our financial resources for supernatural increase so we might bless others in need. We ask for supernatural favor in the sight of all to accomplish all that You would have us to do. We ask for peace and wisdom to abide in the hearts of all leaders so that all may enjoy peace in the land. All these things we ask of You, in Jesus’ name and we receive it–as done! Amen!
