Jn 16: 23-24. “Ask and you shall receive”. Reflection by Cynthia Abegail
“On that day, you will ask nothing of me. Very truly, I tell you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, He will give it to you. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy maybe complete. (Jn 16: 23-24).
It was very clear, the Lord reminds the apostles to ask the Father in His name and they shall receive. Will the Creator of everything, who owns everything will not give what we need as long as we ask? Is anything too wonderful for the Lord? The generosity of God is beyond compare!
We must praise the Lord at all times. It’s not that we just ask and ask! It’s good to adore Him first; then let us ask for forgiveness of our sins. Afterwards, thank God for all the blessings you have received. Finally, we ask God for all the things that we need and ask for solutions to our problems.
Dump all worries in the bin! It’s an insult to God if we do not believe that He could do anything. Have solid faith. I know that sometimes we breakdown because of our weakness. But at the end, our faith and confidence in Him must prevail! We were given the intelligence to think, therefore, let us use our brains to figure out the Awesomeness and Majesty of God Almighty! Praise the Lord! Amen.
