ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive
them, and ye shall have them." -Mark 11:24
I remember a little over twelve years ago when I heard Apostle Beverly Thomas taught this scripture during a service in her home. She really broke this word down like a fraction. It was over a year since I graduated from college and I still haven't found employment. I was at my wits end. I was praying for a job, but I could not get results. However, when she taught on this scripture, this was so powerful.
One, the Lord will not only supply your need, he will give you the desires of your heart. You have to get this in your mindset, or believe this in your heart. While being under the leadership of Apostle Lorenzo Green of Cutting Edge International Deliverance Center, I remember him making this profound statement, "We do most of our thinking in our hearts." And come to think about this, I belive this is so true. And because of disappointment, setbacks, discouragements, etc., we may have either experienced or experiencing spiritual blockages in our hearts. What I mean is because of setbacks, either we question if God really going to do it for us, or if we have enough faith or power to receive what God have in store for us. Thus, this hinders or block our ability to receive what God has for us.
When you pray, you must believe God heard your prayers and have already answered your prayers. You must have faith that you have access to the throne of grace. And when you pray, not only believe he answered your prayer, receive that you already have the answer by faith. And by faith, you really do have the answer, you own it, just wait for the manifestation of what you prayed for.
For example, you work on a job and you expect them to pay you on the 1st and the 15th or twice a month. It is not the 15th yet, but you know you will be paid because you come to work and do your job during the work week. You do not see the check yet because it is not the 15th, but you know you will be paid on the 15th. You don't see the money yet, but you believe you will be paid and you received already that they will pay you your money on the 15th. And because they hired you to do the job, and you did the job, and you will be paid on payday. And when its payday, you get your check.
After that lesson on that Saturday afternoon, it really was the first real lesson on faith that I saw instant manifestation. I applied for a job during the week before the service. But after the service, not only I believed I got the job, I received that job. And I spoke out of my mouth, "That job is mine in Jesus name because that is my desire!" On Sunday, not Monday, but the next day, Sunday, the HR department of that job site called me telling me I was hired. Thank you Jesus 4 God is Good!
Be encourage because your payday is coming! While you are waiting on your payday, just delight in the Lord because he will give you the desires of your heart. And what you desire, pray, or inquire into the Lord. Don't pray your problem, pray your desires, or what the results you want in the situation. Then believe that you receive the desired outcome. Also, confess your outcome out of your mouth. And you shall have what you have prayed for.
REMEMBER PAYDAY IS COMING...JUST BELIEVE AND RECEIVE...AND YOU SHALL HAVE IT!
