“And Jesus answered saying to them, ‘Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.” (NASB)
So often life is about what we do with the words we speak. Here Jesus is saying believe that you have received what you just asked for and it will be granted to you. An important aspect of our believing is to speak it as if it has already happened. In other words, thank Him in advance for that wisdom you just asked him for. Thank Him in advance for that peace you asked for. Thank Him in advance for that financial miracle you asked for.
Heavenly Father, enlarge my belief and erase from my heart any doubt.
