I am sure the title of this blog post has caught your attention, and you are interested in knowing what I am referring to! I want to ask a question to you and have you think about it, before you answer.
What Are You Believing God For????
Are you believing God for: Restoration? Healing? Closure? Peace? Miracle? Finances? Relationship? Deliverance? Wisdom? Revelation? What are you believing him for?
Now that you answered it, my next question is this:
What Have You Done About It????
It is great to know what you want from God, but have you done any action on your part? It is easy to say something and then just sit back, and kick your feet up and wait on God. God operates on Faith!! It is the exchange of currency for us to give to God. We need to have faith on our part and it needs to be mixed with 100% trust. We cannot waiver back and forth and try to put the trust in ourselves and what we can do. It is always about what HE can do!! I am going to share a personal story of what my Husband and I decided to do for our family. We were believing God for certain things and we decided to take action and do our part!! Enjoy!! :)
My Husband and I were believing God for Two Main things!! We were believing God for:
1) A stable job for my Husband and 2) A Home.
We found a logo of a company and printed it out and found a picture of a home that we both liked. We then found scripture in the Bible that really stood out to us and personalized the scripture. We added our names in the scripture! We printed out all of the scriptures that we wanted, and started to "frame" what we were believing God for. We understood that when you "frame" something with the Word of God, that NOTHING can get through to it. We have God's protection in those particular areas. When we were finished we put it up on the Mirror in our bathroom and the rule was that whenever we went into the bathroom that we had to pick a scripture on the picture and say it out loud!! We were to constantly confess Gods Word on what we were believing God for!! We did this for weeks and months. We stood on Gods Word and we were not moved on the things we saw around us. My husband would continue to go on job interviews and some would call him back, and some would not. It came down to a decision on which company to pick and we had to pray about the right path for him to go. Before we could even make a decision, one of the job companies backed out and that was God's way of showing us that the company that backed out, was not the right job for my Husband. With the "house" situation, we were renting an apartment at the time and our lease was coming up. We did not like living an apartment because we have two small children and we were always thinking about our noise level because we had neighbors below and above us. We felt like our kids couldn't be themselves and run around, because we had neighbors around us. That always bothered my Husband and I. God opened up certain doors at the last moment, and we were able to find a home, get approved, and move in after our lease was up!! My Husband found a job that he absolutely loves, and the company has Christian values that they stand on!! My Husband actually looks forward to going to work each day, and loves everyone that he works with. The Lord has blessed him at this job, and my Husband looks forward to growing with this company!! Below, is a picture of what we did. So I want to ask you again...... What Are You Believing God For? & What Are You Doing About It???
