Apostle Grace Lubega
John 14:13-14 (KJV); And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
God can actually give a man whatsoever that man desires. When He made that promise, He meant it. He does not expect us to water it down with assumptions and qualifications.
Sadly, when some read that scripture, they try to disqualify it by assuming that it gives people leeway to make carnal requests to God because he said, ‘whatsoever.’
In Titus 1:15, the Bible says, “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and UNBELIEVING is nothing pure.” If a man is defiled and unbelieving, he will think that it is proper to use this scripture to ask for obnoxious and immoral things.
What you must understand is that to the pure, this scripture is a blank cheque. You simply need to know how it works.
So, how does it work?
The real issue herein is to align your conscience to God’s, connect with Him and allow Him to work His own desires through you. If a man is separated from God, He will desire wickedness. In fact, there are Christians who are not acquainted with God and so cannot connect to His desires. Ultimately, such men can misuse this great scripture.
When you grow and mature in the things of the Spirit, He makes His desires your desires and when you ask, there is no limit to your liberty because you ask in line with His purposes and plans.

GOLDEN NUGGET: When you grow and mature in the things of the Spirit, He makes His desires your desires and when you ask, there is no limit to your liberty because you ask in line with His purposes and plans.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I am pure in spirit and I believe in You and in what You can do. Thank you because your desires are my desires and your purposes are my purposes. My heart beats after your plans and it is within the boundaries of your will that I dream. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
