Thought for the Week 


The Bible says, “This is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him” (1 John 5:14-15). 

When you ask for God’s will to be done in your life, you can be sure God will do it!! And just exactly what is God’s will? Well, here the Bible is very clear. 1 Thessalonians 4:3 says, “This is the will of God, your sanctification,” your holiness, your being set apart from sin unto God. 

God wants you to have complete victory over sin in your life, so ask Him to give it to you even if it seems impossible. Ask Him for whatever it takes to set you apart from sin. Then watch as God fights for you against the forces of evil in your own life. 

Retired U.S. Marine Corps General Charles Krulak recounted a critical event in the Gulf War of 1991:

The prevailing winds in the Gulf area blow from northeast to southwest. 

If you attack from the southwest, your enemy can release biological weapons into the air, and the chemicals will blow right into your face. It was a tremendous concern for the military in the southwestern desert and a grave prayer concern for many, both overseas and back home. 

On February 21, 1991, American forces began an attack from the southwest at four in the morning. Only three hours before, the prevailing winds had shifted from southwest to northeast, exactly 180 degrees from the direction the prevailing winds normally blow. 

The winds blew in that direction for four days, the four days of the duration of the war. Within thirty minutes of the surrender, the winds shifted back (Marine General Charles Krulak, in a message given in Wheaton, Illinois, Leadership journal). 

That is the unbelievable power of prayer. So don’t be afraid to ask God for the impossible in your life if that’s what it takes to accomplish God’s will.
