For. Here. Is. Eternal. Truth.
We are able to have access to the Father to ask of him anything. Why? Because of our relationship with Jesus!
This is what we experience as believers today! We have that relationship that Jesus spoke of to his disciples.
In these past weeks, I have experienced intense prayer time with others regarding my grandson. Not only that – BUT I have experienced seeing others on their knees asking the same Father for someone they know and love in the ICU. Walking through the hallways, you look into another’s eyes and words are not needed. In these moments, time seems to stand still. Nothing else matters.
No matter where I am, I can go to the Father in prayer and ask him for help in my life. And I can keep asking! AND I ask in the name of Jesus Christ because of relationship with him and with the Father.
Let’s take a look at Scripture today:
“Let me make it quite clear: You will weep and be overcome with grief over what happens to me. The unbelieving world will be happy, while you will be filled with sorrow. But know this, your sadness will turn into joy when you see me again! Just like a woman giving birth experiences intense labor pains in delivering her baby, yet after the child is born she quickly forgets what she went through because of the overwhelming joy of knowing that a new baby has been born into the world. So will you also pass through a time of intense sorrow when I am taken from you, but you will see me again! And then your hearts will burst with joy, with no one being able to take it from you!
For here is eternal truth: When that time comes you won’t need to ask me for anything, but instead you will go directly to the Father and ask him for anything you desire and he will give it to you, because of your relationship with me. Until now you’ve not been bold enough to ask the Father for a single thing in my name, but now you can ask, and keep on asking him! And you can be sure that you’ll receive what you ask for, and your joy will have no limits! I have spoken to you using figurative language, but the time is coming when I will no longer teach you with veiled speech, but I will teach you about the Father with your eyes unveiled. And I will not need to ask the Father on your behalf, for you’ll ask him directly because of your new relationship with me.” – John 16:20-26 (TPT)
Remember, this is an eternal truth. Relationship. Relationship with the Father. The Son. And the Holy Spirit.
Satan would desire that you don’t believe this truth. That you don’t believe that there is relationship with the Father. He makes up lies as he goes in order to keep us from the Father. You can have religion all you want. He doesn’t care. BUT when he sees you reaching out in relationship, he attacks.
My song. It is about the Father. He is a good, good Father. Reach out to him.
