In John 14:12 & 13, Jesus says to us, “Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will do the works that I am doing and even greater things. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified.” Well then, why do we have unanswered prayers? Terry Modica uses an often over-looked clue in this scripture to turn your prayer requests into miracles.
When Jesus goes to the Father, he will send us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit manifests God’s divine power in us and through us — in us for our own faith growth, and for others through us, so that we can bring the world to Christ, so that we can minister to others and be Christ’s hands and feet, doing the works of Jesus in this world today. In other words, we’re supposed to be able to do miracles!
Scripture is never meant to be read one verse at a time, out of context with the bigger picture. He says, “Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me” – now we’re getting to verse 13 – “whatever you ask in My Name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
