C.A.C LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR MAY 13, 2024 : TOPIC - KEYS TO ANSWERED PRAYER (V)

--> Note :- Are you born again? You are never going to win the battle against the devil if you are not born again. I plead with you to give your life to Jesus today because the longer you stay in sin and remain unsaved, the more hardened your nature becomes against the purpose and the way God wants you to be for His purpose. To give your life to Jesus now, say this prayer: “Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus. I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself but Jesus died for me and shed His blood that I might be saved. Today, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Jesus, I ask You to come into my heart, be my Lord, wash me with Your blood and make me whole. I believe with my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.” I congratulate you and welcome you to the family of God if you have sincerely said that prayer. Now you are fit to discover, know and walk in your destiny.

TOPIC: KEYS TO ANSWERED PRAYER (V)

MEMORISE : And whatever we ask we receive from Him because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight (1 John 3:22).

READ: 1 John 3:16-23

[16]. By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

[17]. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

[18]. My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

[19]. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.

[20]. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.

[21]. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.

[22]. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.

[23]. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

EXPOSITION

God graciously assures us of answers to our request (Matt. 7:7). Asking is done through praying. When you pray, you are simply asking God to do one thing, or the other. Our prayers bring God's intervention for us. However, many people asked but don't receive. That will not be your lot, in Jesus' name.

In order to be receiving answers to your sincere prayers, you need to understand the fact in 1 John 3:22. The Scripture ties answers to our prayers to our obedience to God's commandments and doing those things that please Him. Do you keep God's commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight? This majorly yields positive results when we pray. Just as true and loving parents do not deny their children who do their will and obey their instructions good things, God doesn't deny those who keep His commandments and please Him, the good and perfect things that come from Him (Jas. 1:17).

The answer to your prayer is tied to doing God's will and keeping His commandments. Yes, ... the confidence that we have in Him (is) that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us (1 Jn. 5:14). Yet, He says, If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you (Jn. 15:7). So, doing God's will and asking according to His will are two important things that guarantee answered prayers. Don't downplay them.

PRAYER POINTS

1. Every impediment to my answered prayer, Lord by Your mercy, help me to uproot, in Jesus' name.

2. The power to do Your commandment and please You always, grant unto me, oh Lord Jesus, so that my prayers will not be hindered.

3. Lord Jesus, let Your authority back the heart desire of Your body in the land, to see the Gospel spread across like wildfire.

SUGGESTED HYMN FOR TODAY:
CAC GHB: 568

1. What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs' to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

2. Have we trials and temptations!
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness:
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care
Precious Saviour, still our refuge
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He'll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Amen.
