until something happens. I saw this on a sweat shirt and liked it. This doesn’t
mean we have to keep asking God for the same thing over and over again. Once we
have asked, we stand in faith, believing, praising and thanking God for what we
have asked for until we see the victory in the natural with our eyes.
I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive
them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24; KJV). What this mean is that when we
pray, we must believe that we have received the answer to our prayer, even
though the actual manifestation in the physical realm may not appear immediately
but may take some time. However, in the interim, we must stand and maintain our
faith because: “faith and patience inherit the promise” (Heb 6:12).
I was thinking about this it reminded me of the story of the paralyzed man and
his 4 friends who wanted to bring him to Jesus so he could get healed (Mark
2:3-12). As you know, they couldn’t get into the house where Jesus was teaching
because of the crowds but they were determined and full of faith. They let their
paralyzed friend down through the roof. The apostle Mark wrote (Mark 2:4): “so
when they had BROKEN THROUGH, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay”.
They had to work hard to break through the roof, and they weren’t about to give
up till they got him to Jesus.
woman with the issue of blood, described in the gospel of Luke the physician, (Luke
8:43-48) pushed through a huge crowd to get to Jesus; driven by her faith. In
her condition she would have been regarded as unclean and could have been
stoned for being out amongst people with a bleeding condition.
determined are we as Christians to seek Jesus, or pray and believe till we get
results? Again, in Luke’s gospel, (Luke 11:10) we read: “For every one that
asketh receiveth”. I encourage you to be persistent and don’t give up but pray
in faith until something happens, until the expected result manifests.
