You have held you back!

I have made the comment on so many occasions, that I would rather be physically imprisoned as opposed to being physically free but mentally bound. Being physically imprisoned, at least I am aware of my situation because I can see it.

To constantly think in the same destructive non-progressing patterns every day is MENTAL IMPRISONMENT! While giving the impression that because there are no visible chains or shackles on you it appears as if you're free.

Every dislike situation or circumstance you've found yourself in I can promise you at least 50% of it is due to the way that you process your thoughts towards it. In fact you aid your situation by agreeing with what you DISLIKE about your situation in terms of always speaking according to what you see and not speaking or thinking according to what you'd like to see.

To change your situation, you must ignore, dismiss or revisit the way you have come to think about your situation. There are many who are in worse situation but have decided to think the best towards the situation. As a result they've position themselves to manage what they've been given instead of what they've been given managing them!

This is why scripture says crazy stuff like, bless those that curse you, pray for those that spitefully use you and say all manner of things against you. Love them that hate you....... The whole idea of these seemingly crazy statements is to CHANGE THE WAY THAT YOU THINK! Which of course is opposite to these statements.

Wrong patterns of thinking equates to SELF IMPRISONMENT! Things can not get better if you're not thinking better. You will not be financially stable if you have a poverty mentality. You will not be healthy if you're thinking sickness.

Nelson Mandela was able to endure 27 years of physical imprisonment and never held anything against his oppressors simply because of the way he THOUGHT! Thus, Nelson Mandela was free mentally prior to his physically freedom.

I am lead to say to someone this morning, that unforgiveness, hate, bitterness, pride, selfishness and the like has held you captive all your life. I strongly advise you to release yourself from the mental prison you have created for yourself by letting the hurts, disappointments, pain and whatever else of the past go! What folks have done to you is nothing compared to what you've continued doing to yourself. Life is short, I beg you to please begin living by releasing those that have hurt you in the past............

Is your method of prayer causing a delay?

 If you're believing God for something to materialize in your life and the foundation of your belief is focused more on the actual thing rather than the word of God that will manifest that thing, then sad to say you're in for a very, very long wait.

The word of God which is the POWER OF GOD will only be manifested based on the belief of his word. The apostle Paul said it this way, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is THE POWER OF GOD unto salvation to EVERYONE that BELIEVE!, Romans 1:16. Therefore the power in which we need to make things happen will always be "THE WORD OF GOD"

With the above being said, I strongly suggest you revisit your method of praying. For example, Is it a house or a piece of property you're seeking God for, then search the scriptures in regards to what God has promise us in this area, such as, " I will give you land which you did not labor for" Joshua 24:13 or "I will give you houses filled with all good things which you did not fill" Deut. 6:10-11.

The manifestation of your physical house or property would be as a result of you praying and believing these scriptures and many more like them back to God. In fact he said that we must remind him of his word, not that he forgot his word, instead it is his word that he responds to. The object of your prayer MUST always be God's word, while the subject of your prayer would be whatever it is you're believing the word for.

So your pray should be as follows: Father, I am believing you for a home and your word says that you have already blessed us with ALL SPIRITUAL blessings in heavenly places, Eph. 1:3. Therefore I am asking you to manifest my spiritual blessing to physical blessing according to your word that says you'll give me houses I did not built and land that I did not labor for. I thank you because I know your word can not return unto you void but it must accomplish what it was sent out to do and also that you're watching over your word to perform it. Father, it is these promises (which is your word) that I am believing for the manifestation of my home in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

Again, if your prayers to God is centered more on that person, place or thing instead of his word that is embedded with the power to change or manifest that thing, then don't expect change or manifestation anytime soon.

"Therefore I say unto you, that whatsoever you desire when you pray, you must BELIEVE that you have RECEIVE them and you shall have them" Mark 11:24.

Understanding Faith!

The just shall live by faith, Romans 1:17

 The just shall live by faith, Galatians 3:11

 The just shall live by faith, Hebrews 10:38

Why would the bible repeat itself in three separate books that the just shall live by faith? Well, clearly it's something important due to its repetition and something that we seriously needs to look into.
Firstly, what is faith? Well,
most folks will repeat Hebrews 11:1 as the answer to that question, "Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen". However, this still does not explain what faith is.

Scripture tells us that Faith comes by hearing, but not just hearing anything. In fact it was specific as to what we aught to be listening to in an effort to receive faith and that is listening to or reading the WORD OF GOD! Romans 10:17

With the above understanding in mind we can safely and confidently conclude that FAITH is indeed THE WORD OF GOD! So the "JUST", which are the believers of Jesus Christ are repeatedly being asked in the above scriptures to live by the word of God, which is FAITH!

This is why scripture strongly expresses that it is impossible to please God without faith or his word, Hebrews 11:6.
Let's take this revelation a step further. In regards to Hebrews 11:1, which states that, "Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen". Let us substitute the word "faith" with the revelation of faith being "The word of God".

"Now the word of God is the substance or material of things that we are in expectation of and the word of God is also the evidence or proof of that expectation that has not manifested itself as yet!

Friends! Please, you must use your faith or the word of God in your prayers, in fact you must make a conscious effort to live by faith or the word of God, why you may ask?, well because the word of God or faith, is the POWER OF GOD TO THOSE THAT BELIEVE! Romans 1:16. Therefore whatever your request is to God it must be accompanied by FAITH which is the same as his word....... God I need you to heal me, then your faith will be, "Because of his stripes we are healed", Isaiah 53:3 or "He sent out his word and heal them" Psalm 107:20, For they that wait on the lord shall renew their strength" Isaiah 40:31.

Find the scriptures that supports your request from God, for it will be those scriptures that acts as spiritual currency in exchange for your request from God. As a reminder, it is impossible to please God without faith/his word!

According to your faith (the word of God) be it unto you, Matthew 9:29.

It shall come to pass!

The word "shall" is a word that is frequently used in the bible. However, little attention is given to this word in spite of the authority and determine outcomes it speaks to.

The word "shall" for the most part is always indicating DETERMINE FUTURE EVENTS, suggesting what one's intent, plans or expectation is concerning future events. In other word it speaks ...
of a determine or establish end or result. Unlike words such as may and might that suggests or detains an uncertainty, the word shall indicates what will happen or what will be.

Amazingly, the etymology or origin of this word is of an old English origin which means to "owe". It goes even further back to a prehistoric Germanic word skal or skul which means "debt"

It is used in English as an auxiliary verb, again denoting future time with such phrases as intends to, plan to, or expects to, must, ought to etc. The bottom line is when this word is used it speaks directly to a future obligation.

To owe someone or to be indebt to anyone suggest that the one that is indebt had to at some point borrowed from the one that they're indebt to. So the revelation of the word "shall" will always be accompanied with the understanding that the future owes you but for the most part that owing is conditional.

For example, scriptures says, "And it SHALL come to pass if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I commanded thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth, Deut. 28:1

So in order for what is being promised to come to pass, then we must lend our belief to whatever the biblical command may be and as a result the future now owes us the promise.

Further proof of this revelation extends to Deut 28:2, which says, that ALL these blessings "SHALL" (OR WILL BE OWED TO US) come on us and overtake us, if we shalt harken unto the voice of the lord thy God.

So rather than being so caught up on the Prophet/prophetess saying that it "shall come to pass" you aught to be more concern about the INSTRUCTIONS, that if followed will cause it to come to pass.

"You can not be owed anything if you've not invested something"
