In this age it's not just about what are you praying for, it's about what are you "faith-ing" for? what are you declaring and actively moving to get.
Faith is not for the idle or the still, it's not for those who will sit and wait for something to happen, it is for those who take action, who are made strong in the process. Faith is a powerful thing, just by nature it is. Faith without works is dead.(James 2:17) When we pray it is a powerful declaration and communication. Praying in wait to receive something is not as powerful as praying in declaration, meditation, and action to get it or to accomplish successfully whatever were trying to do. Because we are alive we must be walking faith. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of
God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through
Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:6-7)
The peace of GOD which passes understanding is found in the faith that keeps us. This is the faith that moves us even when we don't understand or a situation looks impossible. placing a clear, direct focus on GOD blocks everything useless to our purpose out. When we take a moment to put our mind sincerely on GOD it changes our lives. For a long time faith seemed to be mere expectation. A prerequisite for spontaneous miracles to take place, but we are the makers of miracles through faith. The focus behind faith is what causes its operation to flourish. A lot of people who are not Christians or who do not claim to be, produce and achieve in abundance. How much greater should we produce with faith? Nothing is off limits. Faith is action, it is for momentum.
So many times we think prayer is for GOD, like He needs it; prayer is for us. Like Israel Houghton said "say what you heard, so you can see what you said" If we are in faith, prayer and meditation is for our ears. If we continually review and focus on that which we aim to manifest we are in achievement mode, we are actually positioning ourselves for our dreams to come to pass. We should not only let faith guide us, but we should Guide our faith in the direction of focus and clarity, based on God's purpose. Faith is for the strong, and the weak, but it's especially for those that are geared and aimed toward producing. So we should not only get ready for faith, we should make our faith ready.
What are you speaking and aiming for in faith? and are your actions lining up with it?
