1 John‬ ‭5:14‬ Daily Devotional

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”

1 John‬ ‭5:14

1 John‬ ‭5:14‬ Devotional:

We can have confidence in approaching God through Jesus. We can be bold in our requests. If those requests line up with his will, he hears us. This doesn’t mean he’ll answer our request like we think he should, but he does hear us.

Sometimes we can treat God like he’s some kind of genie. This is why we sometimes don’t get exactly what we prayed for. God isn’t someone that we just list off our three wishes to. He’s someone that we’re in a relationship with.

1 John‬ ‭5:14‬ Devotional Applications:

This confidence needs to be applied to our prayer lives. We should have the confidence knowing that the Lord hears us when we pray and wants to meet our needs and desires.


Lord, help me to pray big, bold prayers. I know you’ll hear me and answer me in some way. So I pray with expectation knowing you will move in my life. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
