ALL things are POSSIBLE for YOU… if YOU Believe! (Part 2 of 3)

Apologies to everyone for not getting the post out yesterday as promised… but here goes:

On Wednesday, we did Part #1 of ‘All Things are Possible for You… if You Believe!‘. In it, we discussed that when we go into prayer for anything we desire… whether it be for our family, finances, physical & emotional healing, whatever… there are 3 IMPORTANT concepts for us to remember when we aim to get results from our prayers.

Do not think you are selfish when you pray for yourself personally. God is your loving Father… and so there are some things which you should EXPECT to have… since you are the son or daughter of the most High King of the Universe.

DISCLAIMER: Now, these are NOT the ONLY 3 concepts that we need to have when it comes to answered prayer… just 3 that I personally believe are integral in us getting results when we send our prayer up to heaven. If you come up with any other concepts… please write about them in the Comments section.

THREE (3) CONCEPTS:
(1) God is Your Loving FATHER
(2) FAITH is the Engine that Moves Prayer
(3) PERSISTENCE is the Road You Travel until You Reach the Results

FAITH is the Engine that Moves Prayer
Pretty much ALL the big and huge moves & decisions that I have personally made in life have been made in faith.

I believe that whenever we move and act in faith… we are pleasing the Father. I believe whenever He sees one of His sons or daughters moving or walking in faith He looks down from His throne and says, “Now that’s MY boy… you’re making me proud!” or “That’s MY girl… show ’em how it’s done!”

Check out what the Bible says about how faith pleases God:

“But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him… for he who comes to God must BELIEVE (have faith) that He is, and that He is a REWARDER of those who DILIGENTLY seek Him.”  (Hebrews 11:6)

You see my friend… if we have no faith, we ARE not pleasing our Father. Your Heavenly Father is saying to you RIGHT NOW, that if we believe in Him… He will REWARD you!

My definition of faith is this: ‘Believing that you have something RIGHT NOW… even though you can’t see it, feel it, touch it, hear it it, taste it, or smell it’

Faith goes beyond just simply believing in something (such as your healing in your body, or believing that your business will explode financially)… you MUST be able to mentally see yourself in the position that you pray that God will get you too!

EXAMPLE: So if you are praying for a new house… and you have done all that you can do on your side (get your credit in order, searched out homes, etc.)… put it in God’s hands and EXPECT and visually SEE that you have the new home that you are praying for.

Get photos of your new home and place it on your fridge (or wherever you can see it multiple times a day — I know you like to eat, so the fridge is a GREAT place). Start shopping for new appliances and furniture to place in your new home. Imagine what your new home will smell like… and imagine yourself walking through your new kitchen.

Basically, start acting like you have that thing that you are believing in God for by faith!

You see, the Bible is a book of God’s promises to us (his children). Out of the many things He declares in his Word, faith is one of the most talked about subjects in the Bible.

Read a few of the comments that God declares about faith in His Word:

  • Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)
  • Now Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.  (Romans 4:3)
  • Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed from that moment. (Matthew 9:22)
  • According to your faith will it be done to you. (Matthew 9:29)
  • He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”  (Mark 5:34)
  • He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. (Luke 17:6)
  • He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed. (Acts 14:9)

Let me know what you think. I would LOVE to see your comments, questions, and discussions on any of these posts! Part 3 will come out on Monday.

Have a GREAT weekend… and until Monday, be blessed, and walk in God’s abundance for your life, today!
