Ask Believe Receive
Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive it all.” Matthew 21:21-22
As a child, you may have written Santa a long list of everything you hoped to receive on Christmas morning. And when you were making your list, you held nothing back. You did not consider the cost or impossibility of what you wanted, you simply asked for it and believed you were going to receive it. You had great hope and expectation on Christmas morning because you believed you were going to receive everything you asked for.
Like a child who boldly and confidently makes their Christmas list, Jesus wants you to ask Him in prayer for everything your heart desires no matter the cost and no matter how impossible it may seem. And like a child expecting to receive everything on their Christmas list, Jesus wants you to live with great hope and expectation that you will receive everything you have asked Him for without a doubt. This Christmas, have faith like a child and believe that what you have asked for will happen.
Matthew 7:7, Hebrews 4:16
