Spirit And Life Devotional: Ask, And It Will Be Done

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:19 NKJV
When man tells you to ask him for anything, he expects you to be reasonable; he expects you to know that he cannot do everything, so he often sets limits. Man says, “Ask for anything, up to half of my kingdom”; God says, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” Wow! Hallelujah!
Jesus said in John 16:23-24 and in John 14:13-14, “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
Twice, He used the word “whatever”. Jesus used words wisely and carefully. If He said “whatever” then He meant that we can ask for anything, and if we dare to ask, He will do it! Psalm 21:2 says, “You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips.” Ah! That’s powerful! Hezekiah asked for life and he got 15 more years; Hannah asked for a child and she got 6; Solomon asked for wisdom, God gave him wisdom and wealth as an extra;
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” The Bible says that God granted him what he requested. Hallelujah!
