Sometimes, it is not enough to simply pray for our petitions. We have to take the time out to not only speak it, but also more importantly see it! So, how do you really see it when you are studying for an exam but do not know the answers? Or the doctor’s report is something you have not hoped for? Or your child is not quite making the grades?
Stand on his word
First, you have to find scriptures that speak against anything you are going through. If you are experiencing illness recall through his stripes you are healed (Isaiah 53:5). If your change is acting strange, note he will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19). Desiring a helpmate? Profess two are better than one. If you simply need his guidance today, state he will continue to guide and instruct you. No matter what you are going through, take the time to speak against any negative thought that may have controlled your mind for so long.
Next, after you have declared and decreed it, now you must take it up a notch. See it! See it with your eyes closed. Think of your thoughts similar to watching a movie. If you watch a great movie, you will think great thoughts, however if you watch a bad movie, you will without a doubt think bad thoughts. This is the same as it relates to your thought process in life. If you see yourself failing, I can promise you – you will! If you visualize yourself succeeding, you will without a doubt – succeed. Simply put your mind on positive things and trust me – it is certain to come to pass.
Finally, if you have been thinking the same thoughts for so long, renew your mind today! Remember, he is capable of renewing your mind, all you have to do is ask! Start your day with a different perspective, pray a different way, start believing and seeing what you know he is capable of doing for you! Hey, why not you? He is no respect of persons, so if he can do it for your neighbor, he is certainly willing to do it for you!
