How Will He Not Do It?

Updated: Jul 4, 2023



We know what the scriptures say ...


Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 11:24 NIV


“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Matthew 7:7 NIV


And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

John 14:13 NIV


But I was given more clarity on this. If someone is willing to die for you, then yes, they are willing to do anything for you. Dying for someone is the ultimate way to express love. I can't imagine any other expression of love that can top it.


So, it only makes sense that any other expression of love given by someone who's already given their life for you, wouldn't be as big as what they've already given. In other words, Christ already gave you His life, which was the most precious thing He could've given. Nothing you are asking for is greater than what He already freely gave.


That's like me giving my husband a huge gift by way of a five-star course meal today. But he becomes hesitant to ask me for a snack tomorrow. In earthly terms, one may say he shouldn't ask for a snack the next day because I've already given him such a big gift. But that's not how Christ operates. Christ gives the meal and then tells you to ask for a snack too. Because what's it to Him to give a small gift if He's already given a big gift?


Yes, He has already given us so much by His death, burial, and resurrection. Thank God that we have access to the Father due to this great expression of love. But the Giver just keeps on giving.


He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all---how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

Romans 8:32 NIV


The text says, "How will he not graciously give us all things?". Don't ask yourself, "Will God do it?" ask yourself, "How will He not do it?" There is nothing you can ask for that will be as precious as the life of God's Son. Anything we ask for will be beneath what God already gave. So, please know that whatever you are asking for is not too much for Him to give. Your request isn't too lofty. What is it to Christ to give you that thing, if He's already given you His life?


That dear reader, is why Christ said if you ask Him, He'll do it. He loved you enough to give you His life, and He loves you enough to answer your prayers. And yet, He answers prayers not at the expense of your destruction or demise.


For somewhere there's a woman praying for a husband. But marriage for her may mean the end of her relationship with God. There's another soul somewhere praying for wealth. But wealth for them will make them forget God. So, for them, a petition for holy matrimony and wealth will likely be denied.


God would have all things go well for you, and being separated from Him will not go well for you. Thus, our prayers are interceded by the Holy Spirit according to our soul's wellbeing. And for that, I am thankful, as should you.


I've nothing else to say on this subject. I just wanted to encourage you. To remind you of what a Great Giver God has already shown Himself to be. The biggest gift has already been given. Your requested gift from Christ is feeble compared to the gift He gave 2,000 years ago. So, come boldly to the throne with audacious requests. For nothing you ask for will exceed what He's already done.


That's all! Have a blessed day and week. If it's God's will, I'll see you next week.
