Ask Whatever You Wish

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7)

I’m amazed at the promise in this verse. Ask whatever you wish? That’s pretty absurd. Almost “genie in a bottle” absurd. But that’s what Jesus says. Ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

As amazed as I am, I know it’s true. I’ve personally seen it happen time and time again. When we ask, Jesus answers. When we abide in him (trust him, seek him, talk to him, listen to him, soak in his life), he grants our requests. He responds by giving us good gifts – great gifts, actually! Gifts that are “immeausurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).

This is the great God we serve. When we come to him needy, dependent and clinging to him like little children, he smiles and lavishly pours out his grace upon us. It’s remarkable and it’s awesome. When we abide in him and his words in us, we can ask for anything and it will be done for us.

What are you asking Jesus for this week?
