The real success factor revealed: “And I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father's glory will be shown through the Son. If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it (John 14:13, GNT).” I believe Jesus is challenging us here to increase our faith. He is so confident in His Father’s ability, he said…I WILL DO WHATEVER.
This is one of the most affirmative statements that Jesus Christ made. He assured us that whatever we ask for in his name, he will do it so that the Father’s glory will manifest through the Son.
The success factor is the assurance that the Father will answer our prayers when we ask.
Jesus knows the one who awaits on the other side is someone greater than himself. So, he patiently waits on us to ask.
Our heavenly Father has dunamis power meaning he has inherent power, strength, and ability waiting to be released on us. These powers are attributes of God’s character. Everything we need exists in God to open the streams of blessings, breakthroughs, moral power and excellence of the soul, and wisdom in our lives. That’s just who God is.
I WILL DO IT
Jesus is saying, let me give you a hint. In John 14:14, we get reassurance by Jesus Christ, “If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it (John 14:-14, GNT).”
The success factor is that Jesus has provided purification for sins and given us access to live like no one else lives through the dunamis power of Almighty God.
God’s power is released on us when we pray.
Dear Almighty God,
I enter in through the blood of Jesus Christ, my big covenant brother. My prayer request today is for moral power and excellence of the soul to conquer temptations, in the name of Jesus, amen.
I pray for wisdom to make wise decisions in my finances, my career, and my moral life, in the name of Jesus, amen. Grant me your dunamis power so that I may be victorious. Be glorified in my life today, Lord, amen.
~inspire hope and season faith through Jesus Christ,

P.S.: When you pray, open your heart and get personal with God. He knows what we have need of before we ask, but we must ask. Have a blessed day!
