James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom,
let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach,
and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no
doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and
tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will
receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable
in all his ways.
Be absolutely specific when you pray
You can't scatter shoot a general all
encompassing prayer out to God and have it happen. There are a lot of
scriptures in the Word of God. Find what you need in the scriptures,
and then pray. He wants you to tell Him, just exactly what you need.
give Him detail.
Mark 11:22-24 22 So Jesus answered and
said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you,
whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’
and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he
says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say
to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you
receive them, and you will have them.
Genesis 17:1-6 “I am Almighty
God; walk before Me and be blameless. 2 And I will make My covenant
between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” 3 Then Abram
fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: 4 “As for Me,
behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many
nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name
shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 6 I
will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you,
and kings shall come from you.
Abraham - God gave him a vision. Look
at the stars - that's how many descendents you will have!
Exodus 32:13 Remember Abraham, Isaac,
and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and
said to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants as the stars of
heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your
descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.’ ”
Luke 1:26 Now in the sixth month the
angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of
David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And having come in, the angel
said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you;
blessed are you among women!” 29 But when she saw him, she was
troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this
was. 30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you
have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your
womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. 32 He will
be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God
will give Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign
over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no
end.” 34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not
know a man?” 35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy
Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will
overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will
be called the Son of God. 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has
also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month
for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be
Did you know that Mary could have
refused God, and never given birth to Jesus? She had a free will, the
same as we do. God did not just tell her she was going to do it. But
God gave her a vision and she could see it. She knew it in her spirit
that it was what God wanted to do. He sent His Word to her and she
received it and it came to pass. But just imagine what she would have
missed if she had not caught the vision. What if she had dwelled on
the idea of what people would think of her. What would Joseph do? She
had questions, but as soon as the Angel explained it to her, she
accepted it as truth.
God would have found someone else, but
he wanted to bless her. He saw her faith in him, and he made it come
to pass. This is the kind of faith we have to have in His Word, and
His ability to make whatever you need, to come to pass! For a miracle
to take place in our lives, we have to see it first. Everything with
God is now. It is already done. We just have to line our vision up
with His and it will manifest!
Matthew 9:27-30 Two Blind Men Healed
27 When Jesus departed from there, two
blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have
mercy on us!” 28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men
came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to
do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” 29 Then He touched their
eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” 30 And their
eyes were opened.
Matthew 9:20-22 20 And, behold,
a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came
behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: 21 For she said within
herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
22 But Jesus turned him about, and
when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath
made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Have a burning desire to see it come to pass
Mark 7:26-30 26 The woman was a
Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the
demon out of her daughter. 27 But Jesus said to her, “Let the children
be filled first, for it is not good to take the children’s bread and
throw it to the little dogs.” 28 And she answered and said to Him,
“Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the
children’s crumbs.” 29 Then He said to her, “For this saying go your
way; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” 30 And when she had
come to her house, she found the demon gone out, and her daughter
lying on the bed.
Matthew 12:34b For out of the
abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Mark 11:24 24 Therefore I say to you,
whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them,
and you will have them.
Envision yourself possessing your
Romans 3:3-4a 3 For what if some
did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God
without effect? 4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also
in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in
glory by Christ Jesus.
God not only wants to give us what we need, but also what we desire.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires
of your heart.
In order to receive from God we need that burning desire to see it
come to pass in our lives. Not just a hoping and a praying, sure hope
it happens kind of a desire....but an I'm not letting go until it
happens, believing and receiving kind of desire and faith.
2 Peter 1:2-4a
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of
Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that
pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called
us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly
great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers
of the divine nature.
What is it that you desire? What do you need? Anything that pertains
to life and godliness are yours!
3. Write it down!
Habakkuk 2:2 The Just Live by Faith
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who
Deuteronomy 31:19 “Now
therefore, write down this song for yourselves, and teach it to the
children of Israel; put it in their mouths, that this song may be a
witness for Me against the children of Israel.
Acts 2:17-18 17 ‘And it shall come to
pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on
all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men
shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My
menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those
days; And they shall prophesy.
Receive your vision on the inside!
Visualize everything as though it were already that way.
Don't wait until you need something,
like healing for example, to know what the Word of God says. It is
very hard to believe God for what you need...when the circumstances
are upon you, then to believe for what you need, ahead of time. And
you can only do that by studying the Word.
2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present
yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth
Dream your Dream!
Dream Big Dreams! Don't set limits!
With God all things are possible!
Mark 10:27 27 But Jesus
looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God;
for with God all things are possible.”
Romans 4:17-18 17 (as it is
written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence
of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls
those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary
to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many
nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”
Judges 6:11 Now the Angel of the Lord came and
sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to
Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the
winepress, in order to hide it from the Midianites. 12 And the Angel
of the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, “The Lord is with you,
you mighty man of valor!” 15 So he said to Him, “O my Lord, how can I
save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the
least in my father’s house.” 16 And the Lord said to him, “Surely I
will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.”
Genesis 37 Joseph had a dream and he
held on to it no matter what happened to him and it came to pass.
What do you need to come to pass in
your life? What is your vision? What is your dream? Write it down! Be
specific! Find a scripture that says it is yours, Talk about it every
day, and see it come to pass!
Right now write down two or three top
things that you want to see come to pass in your life. Put the
scriptures that you are standing on to see it come to pass under each
item on your list. Put it up somewhere that you can see it every day
and speak it out of your mouth every time you do.
