At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God (John 16:26-27).
God loves you with an everlasting love! This must be a conviction that’s deeply rooted in your heart. The Bible says, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32). So you see, there’s absolutely nothing He wouldn’t give to you or do for you if you only ask Him.
Some people believe they aren’t worthy enough to speak to the Father directly so they go through intermediaries to get His attention. That’s wrong! Jesus said, “At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you. For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God” (John 16:26-27). Jesus made it abundantly clear here that He’ll not pray to the Father on our behalf. We must speak to the Father directly in Jesus’ Name. No wonder the Bible says, “Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace…” (Hebrews 4:16). Hallelujah!
Have confidence in the Father’s love. The Lord Jesus said, “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24). In other words, your joy will be like a river overflowing its banks. So what are you going to do? Ask the Father whatever you desire in the Name of Jesus! He will do what you ask of Him for He loves you so much and will do anything for you.
