Literally! The solemn truth is that Jesus is just waiting for us to speak up. Fact. God created everything using his WORD. Fact, in order for our prayers to be answered we have to speak it into fruition. Yes, we need to pray for God to give us what we need. However, with prayer, we also have to believe that we already have it. There is a distinct difference, though. The difference is that if what we are asking for is in line with God's will, He will definitely answer our prayer. That is what we are called to do. We are called to distinguish the difference between selfish prayers and prayers that furthers the kingdom of God. Of course our flesh wants what it wants. We are sinners to begin with. We may want something we see others have. A house, a car, a happy family, a great career. We sometimes waste our time trying to take or desire someone else's blessings because we do not want to make the effort to achieve it on our own.
The Bible says it simply, in 2 Corinthians 4:13 says "But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, "I believed in God, so I spoke." The beauty in God's blessings are the words you speak into fruition. Whether it is healing, hoping or happiness.
If we don't speak up and ask God what it is we need, we will never ever experience the true love of God (agape love). Jesus also said, in Matthew 7:7 "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened." If you believe this, ask. God will answer your prayers and you know what's cool about it? His timing is PERFECT! Just as He is!
