Make Large Requests

Thought For The Week 125

Treasure spilling out of a chest

The philosopher immediately demanded, in the king’s name, the enormous sum of £10,000! [Approx. 330 BC] Apparently the startled and horrified treasurer thought this exorbitant [don’t you?] and went to the King to complain about the request. Alexander listened patiently, but replied, “Let the money be instantly paid.  I am delighted with the philosopher’s way of thinking; he has done me a singular honour: by the largeness of his request he shows the high idea he has conceived both of my superior wealth and my royal munificence.”

When we pray we make our requests not of the conqueror of the world, but of the Ruler of the Universe!  Yahshua said, “Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” [John 16:24]  Is there anything we cannot ask of Him? Indeed, have any of us plumbed the depths of His generosity and ‘royal munificence’?  What of our requests?  Do we present them in a way that is befitting for favoured children of the Most High?  You don’t have faith for this?

The function of faith is to link us with our trustworthy, faithful Father; He responds from His bounty and is not, in any way, affected by the ‘size’ of my faith!  I need just enough to trust Him completely!  I am asking myself if I have a realistic idea of Yahweh’s pre-eminence and endless resources; and considering how I approach Him.

American clergyman Phillips Brooks wrote, “You cannot think of prayer so large that [Yahweh], in answering it will not wish that you had made it larger. Pray not for crutches, but for wings!”

[Yahweh] always does what is good for us. If you believe that he gave his own Son for you, this is what you believe. And all of the Christian life is simply the fruit of that faith. Look to [Yahshua]. Look to the love of [Yahweh]. Live in love. And fear no more.
