Promises of God

Promises of God

God wants us to want him because we want him and not because we are seeking him to get to other things. You should treat God like your heavenly Spiritual father. When you focus on God first and not your problems, you will be able to face problems with Godly rest and Godly peace. Never limit God based upon your worldly expectations of what you think God should do for you, when, and how. You will fall into the enemy's trap.

God has already done, all that he will ever do for you. What I mean is that God has already provided all believers with health, provision, spiritual life, peace, joy, and righteousness through his son Jesus. If you truly believe that God has provided you with these things, you should not ask for those things that you already believe God has given you.

If you are a believer and you are missing any of the promises of God that are listed above, it's because one of the following:
1. You are not a believer because you are living in sin. This means that you hear the word, but you don't do it. Righteousness is a practice.
2. You are a believer, and you have faith in God, but you don't confess the promises of God.
3. You are a believer, that confess the promises of God but you have doubting faith.
4. You are a believer and while you are not living in sin. You have sinned by not loving your neighbor. Unforgiveness and hate will block your blessings. You need to repent from your heart!
5. It's not God's will at that particular moment, because he is testing you to see what's in your heart/strengthen your faith.

Sin is a spiritual issue. The reason why some people who say they are believers don't have the things in the bible that is promised to them, is because of sin. In the scriptures below, Jesus is telling us to seek spiritual help from him, so that the sin can be removed and the promises can be made available through Jesus and by our faith in him. God has literally given believers all they need to do what he has planned  and purposed them to do.

Why does the bible tell us to ask, if we aren't supposed to ask?
In Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus tells us to ask, seek, knock. If you read chapters 4-8 in one setting, you will realize that Jesus told his disciples and us to ask God for spiritual blessings, seek God for spiritual blessings and knock until you receive the spiritual blessing. His sermon was discussing spiritual matters.

In Mark 11:23 Jesus tells us to tell the mountain move and it shall be done. God has given us authority to command problems to be removed. In the very next verse in Mark 11:24, Jesus then tells us that whatever we ask for, if we believe, we shall receive. So from verse 23, we know that we don't have to ask God to remove problems out of our life because in Jesus name, God has give us Jesus's authority to do so.

Then what should we ask for, if we have authority in Jesus name to remove problems? If the promises are ours already? We should ask for spiritual blessings!!!!
"Now eagerly desire the greater gifts." 1 Corinthians 12:31
How do I get the promise of God to manifest in my life?
If you have faith, and you're practicing righteousness, to activate the promises you have to speak them. Not only do you have to say it, you have to believe that what you're saying is already yours.
Romans 10:17 tell us that "faith comes by hearing the word of God."
There's one hindrance to faith and it's love.
Galatians 5:6 says "faith worketh by Love."
The reason why God wants us to speak the promises is because faith is a spiritual force, and when we speak what the Bible says it makes it alive and active in our lives.
 " the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:10-11  
When we believe something we will speak it no matter what situation we are. 
"For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Luke 6:45 
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:10-11 
But I've tried this and it didn't work?
If you're wondering well, I've tried it, but it didn't work!!!! Read the post titled, Overcoming Fear.

I spent most of my life oppressed by the spirit of fear, which is why I didn't believe when I was confessing for provision. It wasn't until God helped me overcome the spirit of fear, and I started confessing what has been given to me, that I started to see the provision. After almost a year of confession, I finally believed in my heart what I confessed (Glory be to God). Unfortunately, I thought to myself I finally believe without doubting, now everything is just going to happen lol. I waited for the provision to jump into my lap. I even asked for provision, out of ignorance, not realizing that God has already given it to me.

The Holy Spirit and my Lord began to speak to me again about confession. When I didn't believe in my heart, I was confessing the promises of God in the word. When I finally believed I stopped confessing the promise sin the word. God was trying to get me to do both. It took a couple of days for me to understand that I have to speak the promises that are in the word of God, although it's already mine. 

Keep saying your confessions until you see the manifestation. Keep believing no matter what!

Paul tells us in Galatians 3:13 that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us [note: he redeemed us from the curse of the law, not the promises]. What is the curse of the law? Read Deuteronomy 28:14-68. Paul lets us know in 2 Corinthians 1:20 that God's promises are Yes and Amen. What are God's promises? Read Deuteronomy 28:1-13.
