32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
Romans 8:32 (NLT)
Welcome to the continuation of the series in Romans 8. This time we have come to another powerful verse in the Bible. The above verse is the best answer to any question on whether God is willing to give us every thing we ask for in prayer. The verse says: Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? The answer is a definite yes. No matter what you ask God to give you, he is always willing to do so as long as the thing you asked is worth lesser than Jesus.
I remember a religious guy tried to advise me that God can say no to our requests. Sometimes God answers our prayers with a no. Obviously religious people like him do not read Romans 8:32. Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Religious people can never understand the meaning of this verse. Thank God, we Christians are not religious.
The above verse is clear. God values his Son dearly. There is nothing he cares more than his Son. Yet, he is willing to give his Son to redeem us from our sins, what else will he not give us? (I can imagine religious people getting heart attacks reading this but that is not going to stop me from writing about the truth.) You may have realized by now that I am not interested in finding the truth for the sake of the truth alone. I am an engineer. It is my nature to find the truth in order to use it for my prosperity.
So, here is the question: How are we going to take advantage of this truth? How are we going to make use of it for our prosperity? I am sure you can see that the application is obvious. Don’t be shy. Ask anything you want from God. Ask for big things. Do not limit your asking to your own benefits alone. Since God is so generous as to give us everything we ask for, we can be as generous as well. Ask for more you need so that you can bless others as well.
Here is an example:
You may want to ask God for a lot of money because you want to live like a king. That is a great idea. Religious people may scorn at this but we Christians are above them. Unlike those heretics, we have no problem with people wanting to live like kings. In fact, it will be good testimonies for God if every Christian is living like a king. After all, we have no intention of taking the Vow Of Poverty.
However, living like a king is more than just luxuries. Kings have kingdoms. The greatness of a king is measured by the prosperity of his kingdom. A prosperous kingdom is a strong kingdom where its people live in peace and prosperity. It is a place where all their basic needs are fully met. In this kingdom, no one dies of hunger. Everyone have access to basic medical care. Everyone have access to jobs and opportunities for improvements. Every child goes to school.
God does not want us just to live like kings. He wants us to go further to be great kings. He gives us Romans 8:32 for us to establish great kingdoms on earth. Since we can get everything we ask from God, it will be a waste if we don’t use it correctly. Remember his promise: Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
In other words, whatever you want to do, reach for the sky.
This is how I live now. I want to live like a king. I want to be a great king who brings the love of God to the world. I want the world to know the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I want them to know that God is not a pervert as propagated by religious churches. God loves us to much that he is willing to sacrifice his only begotten Son to deliver us from our sins. Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? It is my dream for everyone on earth to live in freedom based on the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The idea of God not interested in our financial wellbeing is nothing more than a lie from the pit of hell.
In conclusion, God wants us to think big. Don’t limit your dreams within your palace walls. Build a great kingdom. Ask for big things. Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?
