Lots of us work at a job of some sort that helps us earn income. Some people have worked to where they can now draw benefits from their years of working. At some point in life we all are employed in some manner and receive a paycheck for our service. And then we place that money in a bank that helps us keep our funds in order.

Lots of us work at a job of some sort that helps us earn income. Some people have worked to where they can now draw benefits from their years of working.

Now let’s suppose I went to a bank where I had never deposited funds and wrote them a counter check for $100 and asked them to cash it. First of all, I wouldn’t receive any money because I don’t have an account there, and then I’m trying to pass a check by deception which can get me in bigger trouble. But if I go to my bank and write a check and the money is there, it can be given to me.
If a person is a Christian, they are in God’s service. Let’s say by heaven’s standards I can qualify when I go to God in prayer because I’m His employee to serve His purposes. I have access to heaven’s resources.
If I use my name, there is nothing in an account for me because I can’t do anything on my own to earn credit. But if I can use the name of Jesus, I have unlimited resources that grants me privileges for things I have need of in life. God has possessions in that account that draws His interest. And if I honor Him, He will honor my request as He will any of His children who put their faith and trust in Him and live like a faithful employee of His heavenly kingdom.
