“So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.”
The presence of the Lord in our lives brings joy, in His presence there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). Though there are times we may experience grief or sorrow, but the Lord turns our sorrow into joy.
As children of God, we are privileged to receive from God the Father anything we ask according to His will in Jesus’s Name (1 John 5:14-15). May we be encouraged and confident to ask anything to God our Father.
