Fresh Hope – 18th March 2017

1 John 5 v 14 says
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Have you ever tried to send a text message to someone and it says “message failed to send”? What a pain that is. Maybe the wifi connection is down or there is something the matter with yours or their phone.

I’m glad that when I come to God in prayer, my message never fails to send.

That’s right…every word spoken audibly or in my heart ALWAYS reaches the throne of God.
This verse says that He hears every prayer.

The next verse says:
And if we know that he hears us–whatever we ask–we know that we have what we asked of him.

So He not only hears me, He will answer too.

Sometimes my text messages go through, but the recipient doesn’t answer – that can be frustrating too. But not with God. He always answers.

His answer may be ‘yes’ or ‘wait’ or even ‘no’… but HE ALWAYS ANSWERS.

His network is never down, my prayer always gets through and the minute I pray, He’s working on the answer.
