Why you can have full confidence in God
December 3, 2010
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.
1 John 5:14-15
A well-known brain surgeon was taking a stroll one day when he saw a boy on a scooter crash headfirst into a tree. When he realized that the boy was badly injured, he told a passerby to call an ambulance.
But as the surgeon began to administer first aid, another young boy pushed through the crowd that had gathered and said, "I'd better take over now, sir. I'm a Boy Scout and I know first aid!"
When it comes to prayer, many Christians often have that same attitude towards God, don't they? It's almost like they say "God, I can tell you're in a little over your head. So let me take over and fix this mess!"
But in reality, God is the one who can really fix the messes of life when we are over our heads! So when you pray, ask with confidence for God to lead you and guide you in the right path and surrender completely to his will.
Confidence is easy to have when the stakes are low. But when they are high, that's when you need to trust God the most and be confident that he hears you and has the perfect answer!
WHEN YOU PRAY, PLACE YOUR FULL CONFIDENCE IN GOD KNOWING THAT HE WILL ANSWER EXACTLY ACCORDING TO HIS WILL.
