Ask in Faith, Believe, and Receive
Mark 11:23-24 (KJB) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Certainly, you understand that these verses are not a supernatural answer for guaranteeing a man will win the lottery, or even that he will certainly face a financial windfall because he is a child of God! Or that he will be handed the job of his dreams!
The truth is far from that!
However, you do understand that God’s scriptures are genuinely power packed with Truth but His Word does not offer a “nuclear promise” for a man to receive great blessings. However, it is a guarantee from God that as you ask according to His will, believing that you will receive God’s best, He will bring it to pass.
Often, what we may consider or reason best is not what God deems is indeed in our best spiritual interests. God promises to deliver what we desire in our heart according to His divine will and way.
Why then do many people fail to receive God’s best in their life? Either they are asking Him amiss. Or they are failing to follow in obedience to Him. God desires to give every man His spiritual best but a man often limits himself from receiving God’s best.
