“I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big” (Donald Trump, Entrepreneur)

To think big it is a great thing. But how much greater would it be if you could also be guaranteed to have the 100% assurance of accomplishing whatever you “think big”?!

Jesus gave to His own this promise: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you” (John 16:23).  What limit did Jesus promise state to His followers as  to what can be given by His Father? Whatsoever. Whatsoever they will ask in Jesus’ name God the Father will grant it to them!
