Luther: more than they dared ask

Tuesday, October 30, 2018
    Commemoration of Martin Luther, Teacher, Reformer, 1546
    [Jesus:] “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
    —Mark 11:23-24 (NIV)
    All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired, although not in the hour or in the measure, or the very thing which they ask; yet they will obtain something greater and more glorious than they had dared to ask.
    ... Martin Luther (1483-1546), Watchwords for the Warfare of Life, Elizabeth Rundle Charles, ed., New York: M. W. Dodd, 1869, p. 71 (see the book)
    See also Mark 11:23-24; Matt. 7:7; 21:22; Mark 11:24; Luke 11:9-10; John 16:24; 2 Cor. 12:8-9; 1 John 5:14-15
Quiet time reflection:
    You bless Your people, Lord, far better than we could have imagined.
