Text: Mathew 8:1-13
There is no gainsaying the fact that God is willing to do us good. The Bible described Jesus as the one who went about doing good. All he ever did was good and he is still willingly doing good today. If we are willing to wait and obedient, God will give us every good thing he knows that we need. In Mathew 7:7
ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. His words are yes and Amen if we can trust it totally.
Verses 1-3, show us the leper. He was sceptical about Jesus’ reaction. He didn’t know if Jesus would want to meet with him nor heal him. But alas, before he could finish asking, Jesus replied “O yes, I am willing; be cleansed”.
He is willing also to cleanse us from all unrighteousness ( 1 John 1:9) but he says we must confess them first. There is no sin too great for Jesus to wipe away, neither is there any situation he cannot meet. All He wants is for us to trust that he can deliver on his promise.
You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive because you ask amiss ( James 4:2-3)
God is willing to give us all we ask of Him but he will not associate himself with unrighteousness. If your motives are wrong, please be sure you are getting nothing from him. You must get his word inside of you and allow him to transform you in the inner man, then your desires will be in tune with his own( John 15:5)
In this state whatever you ask will be in tandem with his will and you will see him answering each of your request. Be rest assured that he will never deny you anything good that you may ask. Just stay united with him all day long. He is able to do what he says He will do!
