Dr. Creflo Dollar was on TV one day talking about believing and having a faith walk and not doubting about your prayers. We need to have serious faith not just be "Sunday Christians" who think that is all that is needed is a one hour visit one day a week. Dr. Dollar said to walk in faith and keep saying 'and it came to pass' over and over, or in other words you are believing God for a job, 'and it came to pass'. You are believing God for a breakthrough in the life of a wayward child, 'and it came to pass'. You are believing God in other miracles saying 'and it came to pass'.
Now for this to work in a believers' life you have to have your heart right with God. Being jealous, vindictive, hateful, backbiting, is not going to demonstrate a love walk. And without love in your heart it is hard for God to hear you. Psalm 66:18(KJV) says 'If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear.'
If you do more than just show up on Sunday and grow in Christ and have a fierce love for Him and His word, then you will have the faith to believe the ending of what you are praying for will 'come to pass'. You have to hang on and keep believing even when circumstances do not seem like your prayers are making a difference. That is what Satan, our enemy, wants us to believe. Do not focus on circumstances. Focus on ChristConfess things out loud such as:
I have a great marriage
I will find a job
My child will be set free
No weapon formed against me will prosper.All things are possible with God.
In other words think positive and get rid of negativity. Speak positive things out of your mouth. In Romans 4:17 it speaks of 'calling those things as not as though they were.' Believe it and do it!
PRAYER: Lord God I thank you for hearing my prayers. I know that I need to keep persevering in prayer according to Luke 18:1 and never give up. Sometimes the enemy will try to discourage me by planting wrong thoughts or fear in my mind. I resist the attacks of Satan and know I am a child of God and you have good plans for me and my loved ones. I need to believe and receive , not doubt and do without. In Jesus' name. Amen.
