"And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it."
God wants us to ask. Ask for what you seek. And why? So that He may be glorified. Miracles are not for miracles sake. Miracles are so people can see God! It’s for God’s glory.
One time Joel and I were at a retreat and we were placed in small groups and encouraged to ask God for what was on our heart. One of the guys in our small group prayed for teleportation.
At the time I remember trying to hold back a laugh. It was so preposterous! But the more I read the Bible and talk to people the more I realise what weird and wonderful things God did and does.
I mean God spoke through a donkey to Balaam (Numbers 22:30), sends a fish to swallow Jonah and wrestles with Jacob. In the New Testament Jesus walks on water, causes a four-drachma coin appear in a fish's mouth so Peter can pay the taxes, casts out a legion of evil spirits into 2000 pigs who then run into a lake and drown. God moves in mysterious ways!
I don’t know why miracles don’t always happen when asked. But God says to ask in his name. So let’s ask!
