Do not just say "if it be Thy will", boldly declare, "Thy will be done!" The book of Hebrews tells us that it is not enough just to believe God exists. We must
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering, For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. (James 1:6-7)
You must know how to pray in faith believing:
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (Matthew 21:22)
also believe that He rewards those who diligently seek Him:
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
We can pray with authority only when we know that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He still saves, heals, and delivers. His command has not changed, and the proof-producing power delegated to us to fulfill that command has not changed:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, will do it. (John 14:12-14)
The God we serve is one who knows no limits! One of the main reasons why we limit an unlimited God is because we do not see Him as He really is. A centurion, whose story is recounted in Matthew 8, saw Jesus as He was. The centurion said to Jesus, "You don't even have to come to my house to heal my servant. Just speak the word and he will be healed." Jesus was so moved by the centurion's declaration of faith that He said that there never had been any greater faith than that which this man demonstrated.
The new generation of Israelites believed God's Word as it was--a fact--and they crossed a swollen river and conquered evil nations. If you want the same proof-producing power operative in your life, then you must ground your faith in the truths of God's Word. Faith must be grounded in fact.
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
