1 John 5:14-15 - And this is the confidence that we have towards Him: if we
ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He
hears us, and then if we ask, we know that we possess whatever we requested
when we asked it of Him.

Part 1 ~ Confidence

When Jesus was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, John reports that He
lifted His eyes toward Heaven and said, "I thank You Father that You have
heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me" (John 11:40-43). Our Heavenly
Father wants us to have this same confidence in the relationship He has
freely invited us into because He made us His partners when we became part
of His family, and we must stop wondering. Christ Jesus, the only begotten
Son, has brought us into sonship so that we might function, not as
children, but as heirs (Galatians 4:1-7).

The confidence and faith that Christ Jesus expressed in the Father should
also be developed in us if we will hearken to the leading of the Holy
Spirit (Romans 8:14-17). We must recognize that we are called to live the
life of Jesus and to walk in His ministry. The joy and wonder of this kind
of relationship with the Father will result in us receiving a supernatural
confidence to know that He hears us -and if we know that He hears us, then
what we have asked, He will do! We will not wonder if Father will answer.
Rather, we will know that He has already supplied; and what we have asked,
is already ours.
