You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

John 14:14 NIV

He Will Do It

Canadian trampoline gymnast Rosie MacLennan was the first Canadian to defend their gold medal in an individual sport at the Summer Olympics. She won gold at the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics, the inaugural Olympian to defend their title in that discipline.

After captaining the women’s ice hockey team to gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics, Canadian Caroline Ouellette became the first Winter Olympian of any country or either gender to enter four or more career events and win gold in each.

We are used to people not keeping their promises. I can’t be too critical of others – there have been too many times in my life when I’ve missed an event I promised I go to, or forgotten to do something I said I would do. If you’re honest with yourself, you would have to agree that you’re not perfect in keeping every promise you’ve ever made. Which makes us sometimes skeptical that even God is able to keep every promise. The difference, of course, is that we are not perfect, and He is. So, when he makes a promise like He does in John 14:14, He will keep it: “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” The context of this promise, that the context is important, is serving the Lord and accomplishing what He has called us to do for His glory and His Kingdom. As we commit to being faithful to His call on our lives, we can ask Him for all we need to accomplish what He has called us to do, and He will provide it. God never fails to keep a promise and He never gives an unfunded mandate.

These have been words from the heart.
