Now I am talking about the promises and petitioning God for a need. This would apply to physical healing, etc. When I spend time just hanging out with Jesus I don't use promises; I just tell him thanks and I love him. I feel his Spirit inside of me loving on me. Even when I am petitioning for myself or my family or interceding for others I spend time with him first.
I used to pray formerly: "Almighty God." There came a point in our relationship where I just started called him Abba Father (which means Daddy). At first, I was so steeped in religion; I was looking for a lightening bolt to hit me. Then I begin embracing his love.
Did you know that the Word of God (the Bible) is Alive and Working)? Well it is!!!
Hebrews 4:12 tell us that very thing!
12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE NOT JUST MERE PAGES NOT JUST FOR DEVOTIONALS ONLY: IT CONTAINS THE POWER OF GOD, ALSO-IF YOU WANT TO NUKE THE DEVIL THIS WILL GET THE JOB DONE!
This is one of the most important revelations God has given me. It is found in II Peter 1:2-4 (ESV)
2 May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature,
The Seed I am talking about bustin over your problem is the Word of God specifically in this case: THE PROMISES
(Place close attention to the underlined words)
Grace and Peace are multiplied not added through the Promises
God’s Power is given to us to meet what does it say:
(ALL THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO LIFE)
That means he meets all of our needs not just a few
(I Am talkin Spiritual/Emotional/Physical/Financial)
GOD’S POWER FLOWS THROUGH THE PROMISES
THAT IS HOW IT WORKS!!!!!
ISN’T THAT AWESOME--MAKES ME WANT TO SHOUT!
A few days ago, God gave me this illustration to compare prayer only with prayer with PROMISES!
Prayer alone is like trying to reinvent the wheel each time. It's like trying to duplicate a recipe by memory that you have having a difficult time with what exactly is within in. I noticed in my own life that I was always asking the questions: Did I pray it right? Did I pray long enough? Do I have enough people praying with me? etc. etc.
Prayer with the Promises; God showed me was like pouring simple child-like faith into the promises (think of them as molds that are tried and true and work every time.) They worked for Paul and Peter and they work for me and they will work for you, too.
You are going to have to deal with your unbelief my mediating (thinking on) the Promises (not just reading them) and getting them in your heart. It will take some time. I believe you will notice some change right away. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you.
SO AGAIN; IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE RESULTS YOUR WANT-BY PRAYER ALONE; IT’S TIME TO BUST A SEED-THAT IS A BIBLE PROMISE OVER YOUR NEED! I did and I wouldn't trade the positive results for the world!
