I Am The Way

John 14:6-14 (NIV) Holy Bible

6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

****************************

Look especially at verses 12 through 14. Jesus was saying that “anyone” who has faith in Him will do what He has been doing. He went on to say that anyone who has faith in Him, will do even greater things than these. He will do whatever we ask in His name, so that He (God’s Son) brings glory to God the Father.

Having FAITH is believing in the truth that does not depend on material evidence. Jesus instructed us to HAVE FAITH (which is believing) and ASK in His name.

Do yourself a favor, and get in the habit of having faith and believing in Jesus, so that you align your will with His will for you. Jesus is in the Father and God the Father is in Him. Since God also made us in His image, He is within us. When we are in alignment with Him and His will for us, it is easier to know what God’s desires are for us.

God loves to hear and see the fruits of His desires for us, reflected back to Him. So next time you ask your heavenly Father for something, remember that what you are asking for is most likely what He wants for you anyway…and He’s the one who placed the thoughts and ideas into your mind, and placed the feelings in your heart.

Now have passion and follow God’s purpose for you BEING here. Take your action steps to demonstrate God’s divine plan in your life today.
