You're Gonna Get It!
And I’m Not Kidding!

by Pastor John Hamel


"And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us: And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” (1 John 5:14-15)


The Bible says that we can ask God for anything according to His will and He will hear us.  


The Bible also says if we are confident that He hears us, we will receive what we’re asking from Him. 


However, there is a key to all of this.  That key is in asking “according to His will.”


Someone asked, “How can I know if I’m asking according to His will or not?”  


Easy.  Learn the Bible.  The Bible is the written will of God.  To know the Bible is to know God’s will




“If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”  (John 15:7)


These are the words of Jesus.  He said when God’s Word abides in us then we will know what is and what is not His will.  This really simplifies things.  


This means that when we have a need, we can go to the Bible and find out what God has agreed to do about it.  


When we find what He’s agreed to do, we can bring His promise to Him in prayer.  That’s when we can know He is hearing us.  His ears are always open to what He has promised.


For example, if I have a financial need, I will go to Philippians 4:19, which reads, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” 


I now know what God has agreed to do about my need by this verse from His Word.  I then go to Him with that promise and pray, “Father, according to Philippians 4:19, I ask You to meet this financial need, in Jesus’ Name.” (John 16:23)  


I am always confident He hears me because I always ask according to His written Word.  The Bible says because He hears me, I will now receive what I’ve asked of Him.  




So, in essence, I receive the petitions I desire because I remind Him of His Word.  Simple stuff!


This will work to get your family saved because His written Word promises it! (Acts 2:39; 16:31


This will work to get your sick body healed because His written Word promises it! (1Peter 2:24)   


This will work in every realm of your existence as long as you can find Scripture that promises to meet your need.  This is why we need Pastors and Teachers.  Their job is to show us what God has and has not agreed to do in His Word.


Oh, yes!  Let me make this point perfectly clear.  


This prayer principle will only work for those who have said aloud, “Jesus, You’re my choice.” (Romans 10:13) 


Once you’ve said that, you are in God’s Forever Family. (John 1:12)  


Once you’re in the family, you can pray with great expectation.


If you have a need and you don't know what the Bible says about it, ask your Pastor to show you.  If perchance he's unable to help you in a certain area, let me know if I can help you.  


I'll be glad to respond to you with what God says in His Word concerning your need.  But go to your Pastor first.  He probably knows the answer and God told you to submit to him as your Spiritual leader.  Honor your Pastor and ask him to help you. 


Whatever you need, go to the Word, find God’s promise and it’s guaranteed ... 


YOU’RE GONNA GET IT!  And I’m not kidding!


Go get it and be blessed ...  John and Barbara Hamel
