Jesus showed me how people ask for things according to their own knowledge or lack of knowledge, in some cases, of the will of God for their lives. Jesus said that people’s failure to understand His will for their lives often limits Him on how He can deal with a person’s prayer request. This is because faith is required from all of us as believers.
Jesus said, “Even if they would just want Me to be a friend to them who could visit with them or do some sort of activity with them, I would do that. This is even though I was willing to heal them the whole time. You see, I am limited by their lack of revelation of who I AM.” I would be whatever they asked of Me according to their faith and knowledge of My will.” We need to discern the will of God in the Word of God by the revelation of the Holy Spirit.
