It Is Written, Romans 4:21, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was able to perform.
There are over 7000 promises to us in the Bible. Each promise has already been fulfilled and is in the form of a gift to us. The only thing we have to do, is accept whatever gifts we want, by claiming and receiving by faith. You are probably wondering how. Let us take a look at what we are dealing with.
Jesus said that whatever you ask the father in His name, if you believe, you will receive. You might be thinking, easier said than done. Many of us think that if we lived in Jesus day, we would believe. Well the truth is, maybe not.
Let's look at some facts. When anyone asked Jesus for healing or whatever, He never said "I am tired right now" "you don't deserve it" "come back tomorrow", but He did say yes every time. He did not fail anyone who asked.
It is true that the people that met Jesus, seemed to have an advantage over us. But the truth is, those people did not know Him the way we do. They saw other people healed, so they thought why not me? Faith yes, but possibly a fragile faith, in most cases.
If we are saved, we have Jesus in our hearts. We also have the Holy Spirit. The old-timers didn't have the Holy Spirit yet because Jesus did not send Him until after His ascension.
The gifts I mentioned earlier, cover everything you need in life. Remember, God knew your whole life before creation, so when you go to God in prayer in Jesus name, it is covered in what was set aside for you. A little hint. God will not give you something that will cause you to sin, or take you away from Him.
So let's summarize. Jesus never refuses a sincere prayer. The Holy Spirit was the power behind Jesus. Jesus said that He could do no miracles on His own, but through the Holy Spirit. We have Jesus and His love for us in our hearts. We have the Holy Spirit and His power in us, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.
So when you add it all up, what Jesus said and did, the promises, the Holy Spirit, the written word of God. The answer is obvious. If Jesus said it, it is! Believe as a child, and reap the benefits due to a child of God. Ask and you shall receive, if you believe. Stand on the word, and keep standing on it. As I said earlier, all the gifts for you were made available in the spirit world before you were even born.
One more thing I would like to add. The closer you get to God, and the more you sincerely thank God for all He has done for you, the more your faith will manifest. At that point it will be easy to believe. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
