Bible Reading: Mark 11
Memory verses: 1 John 5:14-15, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
We have been told that when we pray for healing or other needs and there is no manifestation, it means that God said no, or we should wait. This lie puts the blame on God as being responsible for the results of our prayers. It implies that God refused to do something for us. Jesus made it clear that God wants to answer our prayers. He made this possible by paying for our sins which stood between us and God. He finished the work of redemption on our behalf. God is not doing any more things for us. Our responsibility is to receive what has already been provided for us through the death of Jesus on the cross. We don’t have to pray and fast for God to move. He already moved through Jesus. Prayer and fasting do not move God, but position us to receive the finished work of Christ.
All the promises in the Bible are Yes and Amen in Christ. However, you need to say Amen (so be it), 2 Corinthians 1:20. By faith, whatever you agree with God to have is done. When blessings are delayed, it is not because God refused, but because we have not positioned ourselves properly to receive them. God does not lie, and He is not a respecter of persons neither is He partial (Romans 2:11; Acts 10:34). His word is clear, if you believe, you receive when you ask according to His word. Remember they are spiritual blessings, meaning they exist in the spirit realm. Faith is what brings them into the physical or tangible realm. Stop petitioning God and bombarding Him with prayers. Do not give up on your prayer, stand your ground, and tell the liar to back off and it shall come to pass.
