Don’t adapt your prayers to your circumstances – your circumstances need to adapt to your faith. Many Christians today are only praying for possible things – the things that they believe are within their reach. What we need to understand is that God is beyond that. He is not moved by what seems possible, but by your faith in the impossible. Faith is not asking for possible things; faith is demanding the impossible.
Beware of letting current comforts keep you from your destiny. You have to let go of what is in your hands, so that God can replace it with something greater. Many believers are living inside the boat and have become attached to their surroundings, while there is a world of promise waiting outside the boat. We inherit the promises of God through faith and patience (Hebrews 6:12). Faith will always be a part of your life and you will unfortunately never get to a place where you have arrived, and don’t have to believe or trust in God’s promises anymore.
But what if I trust God and I am disappointed? We know that, as Christians, we (the righteous) will live by faith (Galatians 3:11) – that is our foundation. If you are trusting God for something, but think you might not have enough faith, ask God and He will give you the faith that you need right now.
“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’” – Mark 9:24.
There are two opposing forces constantly colliding: the natural and the supernatural. At the end, the supernatural will stand. Have faith.
