This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. – 1 John 5:14 (NIV)
Have you ever met anyone that had a lot of confidence? Maybe they just weren’t afraid to do anything. Or perhaps you saw them say things to others that you just wished you had the boldness to do. Some people just seem to have natural confidence built into their personality. Regardless of whether you’re naturally confident or not, you can have confidence when it comes to talking to God.
You don’t have to be afraid of God. He is love and He wants only good things for you. That’s good news. So when you go to God to ask for something or even to pray, you don’t have to be afraid. You can talk to Him confidently.
The other great thing is that if we ask things according to God’s will or according to the Bible, He hears us. So when we pray and talk to God, we can be confident. We can know that God is wanting to hear from us and that He hears what we ask.
So today, spend some time praying. Be confident in your prayers, knowing that if they are lined up with God’s will that He hears you and wants good things for your life!
