TEXT : “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” - John 14:13.

COMMENT: The truth is that when Jesus Christ said whatever the disciples asked in faith in his name believing they shall receive he was not giving Christians a magical formula to conjure whatever they fancy and to make frivolous or outlandish demands not based on knowledge.  The understanding is that since there is nothing impossible with God, (Jeremiah 32:27,17; Luke 1:37) we should believe that God is capable of doing whatsoever we ask that are according to His will - if and when He chooses to give it to us. (1 John 5:14; James 4:3)  The refusal or inability to endure temptation is in itself evidence of lack of faith in God. The Christian life does not promise one overnight wealth; it is one of patience, endurance,  longsuffering and self-denial: but at the end of the day we shall overcome by God's grace. “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” - 1 Corinthians 10:12,13.
