Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: 3 Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. 4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. Deut 32:1-4 (KJV) glory be to O Lord!
Hope you had a nice time in the place of prayer yesterday? It is interesting beloved, to know that no one comes into His presence and go without a present. What level of intimacy did you had with Him yesterday or you postponed it to another time, or probably your problem is that you have done it before and you don’t have a tangible proof to show.
Not to worry, if only you will believe in that name “Jesus”, O evangelist that is where my problem lies, I have been calling that name “Jesus” and nothing seems to be happening. That is it, you believe that nothing is happening and that is why nothing has happened, my beloved.
God said in His Word, “Whosoever will come to Him must believe that He is and He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. You believed not in Him and that is why you have received nothing. The Word of God said,”The just shall live by faith” (Gal 3:11;Hab 2:4;Rom 1:17;Heb 10:38). More so, is what you believe you are empowered to become. So, if you believe not that God is with you in that situation, it will be very difficult to come through it by the power of God. More from the message below:
But whoever doubts stands condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith, and everything that is not from faith is sin.—Romans 14:23
The writer of Hebrews reminds us that without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). Whenever God reveals something, He expects us to believe Him and adjust our lives accordingly. What does this mean? It means we trust Him implicitly for all of our needs because He says He will provide (Phil. 4:19). It means we approach crises with the assurance that God will bring good from them (Rom. 8:28). It means we overcome anxiety during stressful situations because God instructs us to bring our requests to Him (Phil. 4:6).
It means that we never worry that we are alone because God said He would never leave us or forsake us (Deut. 31:6). It means that, despite what happens in our lives, we will never doubt God’s love because He has told us that He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3).
At times we try to justify our lack of faith! We know what God has promised, but we doubt that He will make a practical difference in our life. We are filled with anxiety and excuse ourselves by saying: “I am just a worrier!” We become bitter during a crisis and reason that “God could not possibly bring anything good out of this pain!” We appeal for help from everyone around us when we have a need; then we explain: “I know God can provide for my needs, but I think I should do everything I can, just in case.” God calls this faithlessness. Faithlessness is sin. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him” (Heb. 11:6).
Beloved, what is that thing you are believing God for? We all have needs, some very urgent, some very important, many very pressing. And this God is slow in coming or bring these needs to past. Hear what the Word of God said in the text below:
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all thing?.” Rom. 8:32
If this is not a promise in form, it is in fact. Indeed, it is more than one promise, it is a conglomerate of promises. It is a mass of rubies, and emeralds, and diamonds, with a nugget of gold for their setting. It is a question which can never be answered so as to cause us any anxiety of heart. What can the Lord deny us after giving us Jesus? If we need all things in Heaven and earth, He will grant them to us: for if there had been a limit anywhere, He would have kept back His own Son.
What do I want today? I have only to ask for it. I may seek earnestly, but not as if I had to use pressure, and extort an unwilling gift from the Lord’s hand; for He will give freely. Of His own will, He gave us His own Son. Certainly no one would have proposed such a gift to Him. No one would have ventured to ask for it. It would have been too presumptuous. He freely gave His Only-begotten; and, O my soul, canst thou not trust thy heavenly Father to give thee anything, to give thee everything?
Thy poor prayer would have no force with Omnipotence if force were needed; but His love, like a spring, rises of itself, and overflows for the supply of all thy needs (Ps 85:12). Surly He will freely give us all things if we ask and believe in Him.
Therefore, beloved believe and receive in Jesus Name! Amen! I hope someone is blessed!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
