NKJV Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Mark 10:27 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
Matt 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Matt 6:5 When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners
7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.
8 So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
9 Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. 11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
UNDERSTANDING THE WILL OF GOD IS THE FIRST KEY TO RECEIVING – ANYTHING.
Eph 5:17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
WE NEED TO FIND OUT EVERYTHING WE CAN ABOUT WHATEVER IT IS WE WANT TO RECEIVE.
YLT 17 because of this become not fools, but–understanding what [is] the will of the Lord,
AMP 17 Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.
WE CAN KNOW AND GROW MORE IN THE WILL OF GOD
1 John 5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
WHEN YOU KNOW HIS WILL… YOU’RE NOT TRYING TO TALK HIM INTO SOMETHING…
John 15:7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
