Matthew 14.9 "King Herod was very sad. But he had promised to give the daughter anything she wanted. And the people eating with Herod had heard his promise. So he ordered what she asked to be done."
Here's the story: On Herod's birthday, his step daughter entertained him and his guests with a dance; she must have danced so well that day because Herod was very pleased. In that elated state, you know how excited we are on birthdays, he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked. The young lady consulted her mother who advised her to request for the head of John. Herod wouldn't have done it but because he promised, and because of the people around who heard him, he got John killed.
The Bible says that God is not a man that He should lie. Are you getting it? Now, if a man would not lie, and would keep a promise despite the fact that it involved taking a life, would God then lie and not keep His promises? No, He won't!
Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened." That's all you need! If you want a million before the end of the year, ask Him; if you want a job, ask Him; whatever it is that you want, ask Him! He promised that it will be given unto you; He will never fail. Amen!
