Mark 11:22-23: "So Jesus answered and said, "Have faith in God. " For assuredly I say unto you, whoever says to this mountain, "Be removed and cast into the sea; and does not doubt in his heart., but believes that those things he says will be done, he shall have whatever he says."
"Believe you received it and you shall have it." But you must have a belief through the Holy Spirit that you have received it. Just because you desire it doesn't mean you shall get it. It must be purged through the fire of prayer and the Holy Ghost.
How do we know if grandma called you to preach or God called you? How do you know if God gave you the husband or wife, or if you got him or her through your flesh.You can't follow someone else's script.
Don't force you way into something you'll have to cry your way out of later on.
When you pray, you must believe you have already received it and then, you shall have it In your spirit first than in your life. Receiving in one dimension means I have it in another. You cant have it until you receive it in your spirit. If you haven't received healing in the spirit you cannot receive it in the spirit. If you have not received prosperity in the spirit you cannot receive it in the natural. Some people cannot receive prosperity because they have a broke spirit, a poverty mentality.
A carnal Christian is a (Carn meaning carnivore, meat eater or fleshy Christian.) You make decisions through your flesh. You are carnal because you respond with the flesh over the spirit.
We must realize that, what we are doing won't come through our senses. It will come through the Spirit when we get into the posture of prayer. Prayer will help us to birth in prayer what God has for you and me.
Eyes haven't seen neither has ears heard, neither has it entered into your imagination the things God has in store for you. ( 1Cor. 2:9). God is speaking of the tangible things He is going to do in your life. If it's a thing God can do it; if it's a job God can do it; if it's a job, God's got it; if it's a husband, God's got it; whatever you need, He can give that tangible thing to you.
Gods gonna do a new thing! God's gonna do his thing in your body, finances, relationships etc.
The things which do not appear start with a thought. If you can get it in your spirit, you can have it.
How do I know if God has these things in store for them that love him? But it has been revealed to us by the spirit of God because the spirit searches all things.
I love to go to my favorite Search engine, Google! I go there because I don't like to waste time trying to figure things out on my own, or waste time going through too many steps. The Google search engine is like a search engine. The Holy Spirit goes into search mode to find what is your stuff vs somebody else's stuff.
The spirit reveals to your spirit the things he has for me. Now I have a promise from God which is "Yes and in Him, Amen." I also have faith that cometh by hearing.......However, we don't hear with the the natural ear, but with our third ear, our spiritual ear.
The words, "now faith cometh by hearing," you must believe that which you spoke into existence. If you get it in your spirit, its only a matter of time before it shows up in the natural. You will have those things that You believed, when you prayed.
And ye shall have it! Ye shall have whatsoever you say. The word says, " You shall decree and declare a thing and it shall be established." God don't lie, ye shall have it. We must stop merely believing in God, and move onto, "Believing God!"
Father God, teach us how to pray and teach us what to pray for. Lord help us to have faith and believe God. Many of us believe in God, but as my BFF said the other day, we don't believe God! That is why, Lord, we are not seeing the manifestation of what we are requesting, petitioning You for in our prayers.
Lord help us by faith to: "Call those things that be not, as though they are." Romans 3:17. Help us to stop being fleshy Christians. Help us through the Spirit to obtain the promises of God through the Spirit first and then through the natural. Help us to pray effective, fervent prayers. Some things still come only through
fasting and praying. And when giving is added to those two things, you promise to give us rewards, why? Because a three thread cord is not easily broken.
Lord, we thank you for answered prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen
And as always: "Don't Forget To Say Your Prayers"
