Your Will Be Done
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” I John 5:14
There is only one way to be sure God hears us. God listens to us when we ask according to His will. A human being that understands what the will of God is and makes requests according to that will gets a hearing from the Creator. Praying in the will of God is the key to being heard.
It is as if there is only one kind of human communication that God captures and takes seriously. That communication involves sincere requests that are in sync with His character and His intentions. It would seem that requests that do not match His character and intentions are not heard as valid communication toward God. When we make requests that are not in sync with His will it is as if we are speaking without spiritual sound.
It follows then that in order to pray we need to become clear on what the will of God actually is.
Ephesians 5:17 says “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”
I believe that each believer needs to be able to clearly express in their own words what the will of God is. I believe that one must ask God to reveal His will to them and be willing to live His will as the initial training in prayer. Have you had a personal revelation of what the will of God is? Have you asked Him to reveal His will to you?
Desiring the will of God is the first step in true prayer. What comes out of your innermost being that is consistent with God’s will is always heard by the Creator.
To be heard by God is the most important part of prayer.
Become intimately aware of what the will of God is and want it enough to speak your requests in His will. You will be heard and an answer will come.
“And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” I John 5:15
