Daily Bible Nugget #668, Matthew 21:22

The Nugget:

Mat 21:22  And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

My Comment:

This is a very encouraging prayer promise. We must use caution in its application. The caution required is stated in the Bible itself. The Bible is its own best interpreter. The best way to understand a particular passage or promise is to discover what the rest of the Bible has to say about the subject. I believe the best way to do that is to carefully read the cross-referenced verses for the passage, which I share below.

The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge:

Matthew 21:22

Mat 7:7, Mat 7:11, Mat 18:19; Mar 11:24; Luk 11:8-10; Joh 14:13, Joh 15:7, Joh 16:24; Jas 5:16; 1Jn 3:22, 1Jn 5:14-15
