This is the season of manifestation where the power of God is going to be displayed in his people. I want to be the conduit for miracles, signs, and wonders, the true greater works that Jesus speaks of. The key to this is faith. Faith is not a cliché that people use to distort the facts but is the evidence or proof that God will provide exactly what we need to fulfill kingdom purpose.
Jesus provides a formula for faith that we must use to see the evidence of those things we have hoped for.
Have faith in God.
It is a sure thing to trust in God. He is the creator of all things and without him nothing exist. Everything was made by him and for him. (Revelations 4:11)
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:20) Dare to say out of your mouth what you want from God. God did not think the world into existence, he spoke it. (Psalm 33:9)
Does not doubt in his heart…
Speak as God spoke things into existence. Even in the beginning God gave an example of how to manifest what is needed to sustain the entire world. He simply said let there be and so it was (Genesis 1:3). He was specific and sure that what he said would take place. He left no room for doubt.
But believes that what he says will come to pass…
Faith is the very essence of our connection with God, if we believe that he is who he says he is and that he can do what he says he will do, we have the necessary components to see him. “According to your faith be it done to you.” (Matthew 9:29)
It will be done for him.
Faith is God’s signature on the dotted line, the guarantee of what you ask for. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Whatever you ask in prayer…
Prayer is essential. This shows that outside of prayer we are hopeless. Take what you need to God in prayer. Devote those moments to him and ask what you will. Seeing what you ask for come to pass is evidence that prayer is working for you. This is why it is necessary to pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Believe that you have received it.
When we pray and lay our request down before God we can believe that we have received what he says. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. (1 John 5:14-15)
It will be yours.
