Ye Shall Receive

summer, 2011 024Spider Lilies make me smile.

John 16:23-24
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.
Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name,
he will give it you.
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:
ask, and ye shall receive,
that your joy may be full.

What a promise available to God’s people today!
ASK.
Do you see there are no qualifiers,
no limits,
no restraints?
Just ASK.
Do you see why Christ wants us to ask?
So we may be full of Joy.

Joy – a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

Do you need joy today?
ASK
BELIEVE with your ‘little mustard seed’ faith
WAIT, for God’s perfect timing

See, already, you feel a little joy with just hope in the promise.

Clarke’s Commentary tells me:
John 16:24
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name – Ye have not as yet considered me the great Mediator between God and man; but this is one of the truths which shall be more fully revealed to you by the Holy Spirit.
Ask – In my name; and ye shall receive – all the salvation ye thus request; the consequence of which shall be that your joy shall be full – ye shall be thoroughly happy in being made completely holy.
