“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have whatever we asked of him.” – 1 John 5:14-15.
In Jesus Christ we are now the child God created us to be. His call to us from before time was to enter into all He planned and purposed for us. His will for us was birthed in Jesus Christ, formed in Christ, provided and given to us in His finished work. The cross was and is the declaration of God’s will to all who desire to listen.
Our confidence is now rooted and grounded in the finished work of Christ. It is not based upon our performance, effort and work. We can now be fully persuaded of God’s goodness towards us, in the fulfilment of all His promises through Christ.
And because our confidence is based on the finished work of Christ, we know that whatever we ask of him, he has already provided and given to us. For today, in Christ, we live in the day of answered prayer, the season of Christ’s eternal harvest, the time of the Lord’s everlasting favour.
You can be certain that God hears you, responds to you and gives you all the abundance of heaven through Christ.
Today is a day of anticipation and expectation. You can anticipate goodness and unfailing love dwelling in you and flowing from you and you can expect the favour of God to shower his blessings on you and on everything you touch.
Let your whispers to your Father be filled with confidence and trust in all Christ has accomplished for you at the Cross. For you live in a day of answered prayer.
