Darren's God Blog: "The Qualifier"

By Darren LaCroix | Darren's God Blog

I still crack myself up as I learn on this journey. It is funny how I missed some of the simplest things even though they were right there in front of me.

John 14:14

You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Thank goodness for my church’s daily reading program that also explains things to help make them clearer. I did not realize that the “in my name” was the qualifier. When you ask in His name according to what He wants, He will do it.

I can’t believe I never got that. So if we are asking in His name, we are aware that if it is His will, it will be done.

When we do not get our requests, it is because it is not His will.

I hope that makes sense to you, although you may have gotten this a long time ago. I feel like this is my own duh. I’m just glad I understand that much better now. Thank you, Verve Catalyst.

Thank you, God, for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,
Darren

P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.
