Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Our potential is activated by faith. It is not an option; it is a requirement for the child of God. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world (I John 5:4).
In Genesis, God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” (Genesis 1:26). The Hebrew word for likeness means “to operate like” – not to look like. How does God operate? He operates with faith. If we are not functioning like God in faith, we are malfunctioning.
For the believer, hope is based on the evidence found in the Word of God. Hope is based on the substance of what God has done in the past – knowing that if He has done it before, He can do it again in our lives.
Faith is not mystical; it is rock solid. It does not demand miracles; it creates miracles. Faith takes the first step before we know the outcome. It is not a leap in the dark; it is a walk in the light. Faith believes because of the proof in God’s Word.
Because Jesus healed, the potential to heal is inside of us. Because Jesus worked miracles, the potential to work miracles is inside of us. Faith is fact – not fiction. As children of God, we have the potential to receive whatever we ask.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Be bold and courageous in your prayers! Ask, in faith believing, that His answer is on the way!
