1 John · Exegesis of Light

A SURE Word from our Heavenly Father

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]

Do we not find here another guarantee from our Heavenly Father?
Shall we not see in this Scripture that light that reveals the Father’s eagerness to deluge our world with His supply?

I tell you, Child of God!
Our Heavenly Father has made all supply available to us in Christ.[Romans 8:32]
He has already poured out all Grace…all Wisdom and strength…everything we need to make our sojourn here of heavenly purpose and earthly impact.

To this end, let our prayer be unhinged from the rusty doorposts of mere religion. For ours is a call to walk in oneness with the fullness of Deity and learn to receive all that He has made available in Grace.

To this reality, we have a sure word…for us who keep and obey His commandment; as loyal and faithful servants…pleasing Him always in everything we do…
For us who are faithful in this regard “whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

May our hearts be full with all supply met, may our eyes be enlightened always, may our faces be radiant with the Father’s countenance, and may our whispered petitions to Deity always be answered in the name of Jesus!

Amen
