Indeed our expectation is God’s invitation. This may be contrary to what many may think, but truly the Word of God is not subject to man’s opinions. How can we pray and not expect the Lord to answer our prayer? We might as well not pray! The only way we can be fully convinced is when we go back to His Word and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He will do what He says He will do. If it is His will and His will is in His Word, then, who are we to question?
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” (1 John 5:14-15)
