Things I've Revealed

Things I've Revealed

23 December 2010

Today’s Reading: John 15-18


23 …“This is what I want you to do: Ask the Father for whatever is in keeping with the things I’ve revealed to you. 24 Ask in my name, according to my will, and he’ll most certainly give it to you. Your joy will be a river overflowing its banks! (John 16:23-24 MSG)

Jesus had only a few more hours with his closest followers. It was time for them to do some spiritual “growing up.” He told them that after three years of asking him questions about everything, it was time for their relationship with the Father to become real, personal, and intimate. He said, “Now it’s time for you to go directly to the Father, my Father, your Father, and ask him for what you need. This is not some kind of spiritual shopping spree. Ask the Father for what you need to do my will. Remember the things I’ve revealed to you – my mission, my purpose for you. Then ask for things in keeping with who you are and why you’re here.”

There are specific things Jesus has revealed to me concerning his purpose for my life, my mission on earth. Some of those things have happened, some of those things show signs of developing, some of those things I can just glimpse up the road ahead.

It’s time for me to be more passionately disciplined in asking the Father to fulfill the things Jesus has revealed to me – the things I know to be in harmony with his will.

What about you, friends? Are there things Jesus has revealed to you, things about his purpose for your life, that you can begin to directly ask the Father to begin fulfilling? Let’s purpose to passionately seek and ask for all that is according to his will, so that our lives will be fruitful and our joy will be full!


Father, I ask you today for a fresh infusion of passion and enthusiasm for the things you have revealed to me concerning my purpose and my mission. With your help and with your Spirit’s stirring, I’m going to begin asking in a consistent, disciplined way accordance with your will for my life. May it be unto me according to your Word and your Will. Amen.
