And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, he heareth us: 1 John 5:14. What a wonderful little verse this is and what a glorious Promise is given to us. Whatever we ask for, IN FAITH BELIEVING, we get. Everyone loves this verse, especially the Prosperity Preachers. This one's their favorite. Let's take a close look at this verse again. It says nothing about in faith believing and nothing about we get what we ask for. Reread it again, in its full context, and suddenly this verse becomes a burden to the Believers. It's worth repeating, "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, he heareth us: 1 John 5:14". And here's the burden part, "ACCORDING TO HIS WILL". This means we must spend time in the Lord's Presence to seek His Face, and to Know His Will about what HE wants us to pray about. This now goes from "ask and receive" to "seek out the Lord and what's on His Mind". This isn't even about reciting God's Promises from Him to us and picking the ones we like for us for this moment. It's that He will Gladly give us ALL WE ASK FOR, because we have spent serious time with the Lord and KNOW THE MIND OF CHRIST, we Know what's important to Him during our Prayer Time, RIGHT NOW. He will give us step by step directions about what's on His Heart if we will ask Him, What's on His Heart. This calls for daily Fellowship, sometimes moment by moment fellowship to understand His Will. And to understand His Will means its all about Him and His Heart's Cry, and not our crying heart for stuff from our "Genie in our bottle". When our heart's cry syncs up with His Heart's Cry, THEN Things begin to happen. We've heard from God Himself, and what's important to Him, is now what's important to us. Add in Obedience from us, and it's a Glorious Thing to KNOW and OBEY His Heart's  Cry. Now He can use us for His Purposes and EVERYONE will, Be Blessed.
