1 John 5:13-15 (KJV)
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

There is power in the name of Jesus. His name is the authority. How many remember when you were young, and you began to act out, but someone said, “I am going to tell your Father.” That straightened you right up because you knew the consequences if he got involved. Well that is how it works in the universe. If you ask anything according to his will, he will hear you, and you know without question that you will receive what you have asked of him. It is the “according to his will” that is the key to receiving. James wrote, “Ye ask, and received not, because you ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.” Is what you are asking in agreement with the plan of God? Or is it for selfish gain? The New Living Translation generalizes it by saying, “anything that pleases him”. Make sure when you begin to ask for things that it lines up with God’s purpose. Healing is one of those things that lines up with God’s purpose or plan. If you are sick, just ask and believe. Jesus allowed himself to be beaten with stripes upon his back so that you could have healing. There is never a time it is the will of God for you to live with disease or sickness. You only need to ask once, then have confidence that he heard your petition, and trust that he will answer by thanking him until the answer has been made clear. Then the Lord will bless you one day with everything that you desire. Receive your blessings today, today may be the day that you receive the answers to your requests.
