Faith In Your Request

Believe that what you ask of God is done!

I have to admit that for a long time I would pray and ask God to do things for me, but in my heart I didn’t trust God to come through for me.

This has definitly manifested itself in my life. God cannot work where there is no genuine faith. It has and it will take me time to keep moving toward faith. It has begun to shift things in my life around and manifest His goodness of what He has had stored away for me.

Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
Mark 11:24 NASB

He has moved mightly in my life from December through February in big ways that I didnt think back prior was possible, but having faith and having leadership that is anointednin a way to help break me free from things that were hindrances has brought those things to life. I am greatful for their anointing at Reformation Developmental Center of which is Pastored by Juanita Gibbs.

Thay was only the beginning. God is going to do more great and mighty works in my life. Its only a matter of time that they will begin to burst forth. Life and death is in the power of the tongue and now when I ask God for my request I truly believe He will answer and come through in time for all things concerning me.

Pastor went live this morning for a brief encouragement for us. She said don’t give up on your prayer life because things are hard, you haven’t gotten what you asked for yet, or it don’t look like its working. For it is working in waya we do not see just yet. This live stream confirmed my blog post today in so many ways.

Keep Walkin!

But I’m weak and tired to keep going, its easy just to give up!

That has been my way of life for years honestly. I would fight, fight and fight to no end for things that appear to come easy for some.

The judgmental mindset that I have when someone attained something before me that I wanted became my reason to give up.

How crazy is that right!

Those who obtained things before me I don’t know what kind of pain, pressure, growth they had to endure before their blessing came.

It got to a point when I first came to the church I am apart of now that I had to choose to not judge and choose to be happy for the person. The bible says rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.

Instead of rejoicing with them who rejoiced I mourned when others rejoiced. So very backwards and not of the word of God!

In the time of choosing to rejoice and genuinely being happy for people on their time its lifted a mindset of “what about me God?” Its still within me I admit but I have to manage that when it comes on me.

My Pastor Juanita Gibbs has so lovingly instilled tools within her teachings to help me manage myself. I just have to pick up the tools and implement their usage in my life.

As I have used her tools its become an easier fight of faith to keep going. But, I still have to manage the “give up” mindset that I have. Because if I go unaware of its flair up I could stop walking in faith and become much like some of the world.

Faith in God is to have a balanced and stable life in Him and through Him. It takes time and consistent effort to connect with God, know His heart, know His love, and know His plan.

Do I know all this thing from God?

No!

But it is my daily effort to connect and commune with Him that He can speak, lead, guide and direct my life as long as I remain humbly submissibe to his direction. This is the only way I can continue to walk and do Gods will for my life.

By faith the people of Jericho marched when they didn’t know how the wall would fall. They had faith that they were told to do this by God and humbly followed His command and what happened? They saw the wall fall by there obedient faith!

I have to trust Gods leading just like them and keep walking when I don’t know how the wall will come down! If I stop then thats not faith, but if I keep going thats faith and displaying my reliance on God to do what only He can do!
