Anything in His Name

The modern space age began on this day in 1926, when Robert Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket. In the next several years, he went on to develop new applications for a wide variety of inventions to improve rocket performance. He had done what others thought impossible, but, ironically, his work was virtually ignored in the United States.

In fact, few people recognized the significance of his discoveries until the German military successfully used V-2 rockets during World War II. Finally, after the war, Goddard’s work began to receive attention. Eventually, he became recognized as the father of modern rocketry.

Today, many Christians do not realize the extent of the power that God has made available to them. They may read the Bible and go to church. They may pray and believe in God, but they still place limits on Him, or simply feel that His power is not available to them. However, the Bible reminds us of the words of Jesus: If any person believes in Him, we can do even “greater works” than He did while He was on earth. We can ask for “anything” in His name! Anything!

Right now, do you face problems that seem to be impossible? Do you know someone with serious needs? Start declaring God’s Word to be true. Accept the challenge of Jesus: “Ask me, and I will do whatever you ask” (v. 13 CEV). Whatever!

So be bold and ask! Declare His promises to be true in your life. Don’t be crippled by doubt, and don’t limit Him.
