Faith isn’t just hoping that God will answer our prayers – faith is also the assurance that God knows and loves us well enough to know what it is we’re really praying for.
This week let us pray fearlessly, friends, as people with a knowing faith – knowing that our Lord is good and knows us – and a known faith – remaining steadfast in all situations.
But Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Yes—and if you embrace this kingdom life and don’t doubt God, you’ll not only do minor feats like I did to the fig tree, but also triumph over huge obstacles. This mountain, for instance, you’ll tell, ‘Go jump in the lake,’ and it will jump. Absolutely everything, ranging from small to large, as you make it a part of your believing prayer, gets included as you lay hold of God.” Matthew 21:21-22 MSG
I’m an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking. Psalm 139:1-6 MSG
