The Lord said to me; "Some want to RECEIVE before they put forward the BELIEVE"!
Our God is a God of Free Will, He never forces us to believe & likewise, when His Holy Son put forward His Human life, spilling His Holy Blood for our sins, the moment we accept, acknowledge & believe in that sacrifice only then is the Bond formed and reparation made. Like being ransomed from jail; He then becomes our Lord, Our Master. In that exchange, our New Master & keeper begins to perform & function in our lives, in our hearts, because of that acceptance, free will and BELIEF. That is Faith in action!
God has His hands outstretched to us in so many ways, everyday. Calling out, placing opportunities & challenges in peoples lives; just waiting for them to call upon Him, to place forward the BELIEVE, so that they may RECEIVE! The only equity we have, of any value to the Lord, is that of our belief. It is like Gold, in fact it is of more value. Even displayed on our money, it rightfully reads; "In God we Trust", although, as of late, everyone should begin to wonder has this changed, is it just lipservice?! "Your two cents worth", as they say, is the very thing that I speak of. Our opinions, our belief, becuase God made us to have them, he gave us choice but many misuse it. "No one can steal or invade your mind, right?"; even that is not true! Satan can manipulate and turn your thoughts toward things offensive to God. He can invade, pursuade and run amuck! Unless you are saved your mind is at risk, like a computer connected to the worldwide net without security protection! Yes, Satan is a mind virus that effects every unsaved, unsure life! (Romans 8:6) So, while you still have a chance, a choice....make this chapter of your life the one that ushers in Salvation! Every opportunity, every song, every status, every image that speaks of Him, yuppp; they are all opportunities placed by Him that many will and do turn away from. Those very things will be brought up in that day, the day of judgement... when many will claim they did not know, were not aware or had no idea and in that day, the accounting will be replayed for them, no excuse will stand.
Now, back to this BELIEVE issue; God says, to the believer; "If you believe on me for your salvation, then believe on me for EVERYTHING else". Be thou not a hypocrite; ask Him to help your unbelief and He will. Ask for increased FAITH through prayer! Pray for everything and diligently watch, taking notice. Especially, God builds faith when we pray for others. (Eph 6:18) Did you ever pray for someone and then low and behold, it specifically comes to pass? Yes, I have & I keep a journal of these "praise reports". Write yours down, bind them upon your heart and remeber them. This is proof that God hears and this is Faith being built.
Even a farmer knows good seed produces a good crop. To a farmer his seed is valuable, it's money in the bank. This too is why God calls them seeds of faith. Becuase His word, which holds many countless promises for us and our provision when placed in the firmament of God's soil, placed forward through faith, will for sure not go in vain. Jeremiah 17:7-8 His word never returns to Him void, so your seeds of faith never will either!For what you believe that also is what you receive!
I BELIEVE THAT YOU SHALL RECEIVE ALL THAT YOU BELIEVE; DO YOU RECEIVE, THAT ALL YOU BELIEVE, IS WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE? BELIEVE IT & RECEIVE IT! ~ GOD BLESS!
2 Corinthians 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;Heavenly Father, I call upon you this day in full belief and ready to receive the bounty you have promised your saints who diligently seek you. On behalf of souls of those whom I have petitioned you for, I stand with mine hand over their heads in spirit, requesting Father that you touch them; let the trappings of this world fall away just long enough for them to see your outstretched hand. Draw forward their belief and secure them in the trust they shall place in you. Father, I also stand here in the gap for many souls, your children whom are at all levels of advancement; help us to trust you with everything that we have. Help us to make rightful choices. Help us to see that all things belong to you and that it is your good pleasure to bless us, meeting any and every need. Help us get on with addressing our spiritual nourishment as well as physical, help us to address our financial breakthroughs as we open our wallets to the needy. Help us seek you first in order that we might find what we seek in our day to day life. Lord, if we could only see ourselves as you see us, then we could begin to submit ourselves ultimately and entirely to the creator who formed us, You who have the power to transform us into that which You originally intended! Oh for that glorious day, when we, your children will stand before you, perfected in your Grace and seeing your face! Thank you Lord for providing us with all that is required to achieve this! In the name of your Holy and Triune Son, Our Lord, Savior and Christ, AMEN!

This Prayer event on Facebook :
7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
|1 Timothy 4:9-10|
9This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
10For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
20And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
|2 Thessalonians 3:3|
3But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
9Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
22And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
|2 Corinthians 9:8|
8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
|2 Corinthians 6:2|
2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
43To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
1They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
