I have shared this many times before, but it bears repeating! Psalm 25:4-5 from today's Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan is a great prayer t pray before you study the Word of God!
1 John 5:14-15 tells us this:
We KNOW that if we ask ANYTHING that is in line with God's will, then he HEARS US! IF He hears us, we HAVE what we have asked for! How simple and clear is that? Look at The Passion Translation:
So all that we have to do to ensure that our prayers are answered is to make sure that it lines up with His will! His Word IS His will! So, fins out what the Word says and then ask it! AMEN! So, going back up to Psalm 25:4-5, we KNOW that this is God's will for us! He has instructed us to know His Word and to DO His Word, so this prayer is one that He is SO excited to answer! Even more than we are to ask it! Make that request of the Lord before you get into His Word and you will find that you are learning and growing at a faster rate than you ever have before! The only thing that will hold you back is if you LEARN and then don't DO what the Word says! James 1:22 tells us that if we do that then we will be deceiving ourselves! Thinking that we know something, when KNOWERS are DOERS! Be a HEARER and then a DOER! You will never regret that decision! AMEN! Here is Hillsong UNITED with "So Will I":
Shalom in Him!
