- “And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father” (John 14:13).
It’s all for a single purpose–to bring glory to the Father. The more you study God’s purposes in the earth, the more you realize there is really only one–to bring glory to the Father. The original purpose of Creation is found solely in God’s desire to be known or to be made evident to those He has created. His purpose in redemption is, once again, the desire to be God with us–to be known. Indeed, God’s very purpose in the eternal plan is to be with us forever. While we can’t guess as to why that is Heaven to God, it is surely Heaven for us. He wants to be glorified (or to be made known) so that we might come to Him and dwell with Him. When you see this motive and how it affects what you ask God for, you can begin to understand Jesus’ willingness to do what we ask.
