God commands us to act on his word, he doesn’t suggest that we do, he instructs us to because he has big plans for us to be successful in ever increasing glory. Every good father would not suggest to his child to go to school, he instructs his child to go to school even if the child cries all the way, because he knows that getting education is key to living a good life in the natural world, same with God, he instructs that we act on the word and quit doubting the faithfulness of his word.
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
The apostle, John wrote his first epistle to believers, and for you to be called a believer it means you have come to believe and confess the lordship of Jesus. It is striking to note that one of God’s commandment is that we believe on the name of his son Jesus Christ, now for an unbeliever believing in the name of Jesus would mean salvation from sin and death, but the epistle was not addressed to unbelievers but believers, meaning that God commands us to believe that the name of Jesus can give us the things we so desire when we pray- healing, a good job, a good wife etc.
Knowing that God commands us to use the name of Jesus shows us how much God is out for our success, refusing to use his name is not only short changing yourself but disregarding God’s instructions.
Don’t cry or panic in that situation, use the name of Jesus, declare your rights in the name of Jesus, ask in the name of Jesus and you would receive whatsoever you ask of him.
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
