LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind…” (James 1:6, the Holy Bible).

“IF YE SHALL ASK ANYTHING IN MY NAME...”: A repost from 2009: “Pastor Paul Waldmiller of New York, USA, is a blessing of magnificent proportions to me and to Batas Internet Radio and Batas Internet TV, not only because he diligently broadcasts daily in his 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. program `The Gospel Hour with Pastor Paul Waldmiller’ even if he is not paid anything, but also because of the many inspiring thoughts he showers me and his listeners with.

“On December 25, 2009, Christmas day, he sent me an email written by his friend, Emma Okorie, entitled `If Ye Shall Ask Anything in My Name.’ It contains a simple yet very powerful message and I would like to share it with my readers in full, even if I have to publish it in several installments once again.

“Here is the first part of the email, partially edited, by Emma Okorie: `Lying on my bed in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, a few weeks ago and pondering over mountainous challenges standing before us as a ministry, God stuck this one scripture in my heart.

BELIEVERS OF JESUS HAVE DELEGATED AUTHORITY TO DO MIRACLES: “ `Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:12-14).

“As a habit, I do not walk by sight; I walk by faith. This is easier said than done when the mountains are extraordinary; when sickness, poverty and obstacles are overwhelming. Instructively, Jesus Christ, son of the living God, speaking to his disciples, said, `He that believeth in me, the work that I do shall he do also…’

“Faith and belief in Jesus have the unfailing potential to increase miracle level and transform entire lives. We shall do greater works because Jesus has given us delegated authority while going to his Father.

ASK AND RECEIVE: “As we do the works that Jesus did, whatsoever we ask in His name shall be done. In childlike belief, whatsoever we ask in the name of Jesus we shall receive. John 15:7-8 says `If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.’

“A child of God, abiding in the Lord and His works abiding in Him, shall ask what he will and it shall be done unto him. Tell me, when you come to the presence of God in prayer, what is your real thinking? What actuates you? Money is a legal tender but the name of Jesus is a greater legal tender.

“Your faith in Christ is the most effective legal tender, more powerful than all currencies in the world put together. As long as you bear fruit and multiply the kingdom of our dear Father, you will ask and receive…”
