God is Looking
God calls us to pray, but He also calls us to use the authority that He has given to us, speaking things that are not as though they were. ?Our confession is very important. ?What we confess is what we believe. God is looking for faith. ?Jesus said, “Will the Son of Man find faith on earth when He returns?”
“I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
I do not want to disappoint the Lord, neither do you. ?We need to be believers that believe in what He has promised. ?God promised us that whatever we ask in prayer it would be done. ?He said, “Ask for the nations”. ?God cares about things big and small. ?A big part of really knowing our Father is knowing full well that He is much better than any earthly father. ?Jesus put it this way, “If your earthly father gives good gifts, then how much more will Your heavenly Father?” ?In other words, we need to believe that God will not only bless us in what we consider “spiritual”, but also in the natural need department. ?We are blessed to be a blessing being in the lineage of Jesus Christ, the seed of Abraham. ?Abraham being the father of faith.
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
“So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.”
But there is no way we can ?be a blessing if we are not walking in His blessing. ?I believe God wants to bless us so much that it is literally offensive to others. ?I’m not talking about materialism. ?That is the worship of things. ?I’m referring to biblical prosperity where God delights to give because He is a giver and His people are givers, rather than being stingy and penny-pinchers.
2 Corinthians 9:7
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”
The only limitation God has is our own thinking. ?He is more hindered by stinking thinking than anything else. ?If someone is having a problem experiencing God’s presence it is not because He has gone anywhere. ?It is because people have gone somewhere other than to Him. ?God does not change. ?Only man is prone to change. ?God wants to transform our thinking in such a way that we can believe Him for anything, everything, anytime and anywhere! ?How else is the world to experience Him. God has chosen to use vessels that are yielded to His heart. ?Still the mind must understand truth and just how good God is.
Here are some practical simple steps to move into a place of victory using our God-given authority over the enemy:
1. Yield, worship, give thanks and praise
2. Simply believe in who He is and what He says. God is good. This includes cleansing our hearts of lies and evil speaking.? Bad that has been stored needs dumped & burned.
3. Understand that we are God’s ambassadors, His mouthpieces, in the earth. We are those who speak victory, faith-filled confessions that shift things for the Kingdom of God. We live our lives from a place of being new creations.
With this in heart and mind, speak life! ?Speak the good report because you CHOOSE to believe it. ?Take authority and cause things to happen because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.? Believe that peculiar things happen in your life because you are a peculiar person in Christ. ?Live happy! ?Live in victory! Choose it.
His Overflow Be Yours!
