A BLANK CHEQUE

Religion has cheated many and deceived them to thinking they’d have to ask for their needs! Paul said, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Paul wasn’t making a promise to the Church on God’s behalf; he had come to know God’s ways of doing things: He supplies not just some but ALL our needs! Therefore, when you recognize a need, you don’t need to pray, “Oh God, I need such-and-such”; just declare that you have it in the Name of Jesus. As the seed of Abraham, you deserve to have the best things in life; there’s no reason for you to be in lack or to envy others over what they have. You can have anything you want. Nothing is too good for you. Be bold to ask what you want in His Name, and receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:24).

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it (John 14:13-14).

Only someone with unlimited power could make a statement such as the one above. Jesus said, if you ask anything in His Name, He’d do it; irrespective of what it is! As long as it’s something that’s good for you and good for God, you can ask and it’ll be granted you. In Jeremiah 32:27 the Lord said, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” He’s the Big Boss; He owns everything; and He’s saying to you today: “Ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you.” Some people say, “We should never ask God for the things we want; God only grants our needs, not our wants.” But the Lord says, “…if ye shall ask anything.” This certainly doesn’t refer to asking for “your needs.” In fact, you’re not supposed to ask for your needs because they’re already catered for by your heavenly Father. The Bible says He’s the One who takes care of the sparrows, and the lilies of the field. If He would cater for the birds and flowers, how much more will He take care of you, His beloved child (read Matthew 6:31-32 AMP).

What do you want today? God has given you a blank cheque today; what are you going to do with it?

Thinking

Say this to yourself: The Lord is my Shepherd, therefore I do not lack. I’m walking in the light of my prosperity today, for I’m the seed of Abraham; I have access to wealth untold; I’m supply conscious! I have all my needs met, because I’m plugged to God’s unending supply.

Use Your Faith

…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.  Matthew 17:20

The Word of God is real and true, but that doesn’t mean the experiences of your life will automatically line up with it. You’re the one to make them so. This is the fight of faith the Apostle Paul talked about in 1 Timothy 6:12: “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”

You’re the one to appropriate all that Christ has accomplished on your behalf in spite of everything your physical senses may otherwise perceive. You’re the one to subdue the circumstances around you, the forces or the symptoms that attack you, and effect the change! There’re those who say, “I believe the Word, but why are things not working out right for me?” It’s like someone who’s hoping that God will set him free someday; that’s not going to work, even though he believes it, because that’s not faith.

“Believing” the Word is not enough; your believing must translate to faith. Faith declares the Word to be real and true NOW, and acts accordingly. The contrary circumstances will not change by themselves, or change because you believe. Romans 10:10 says, “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness….” Believing sets your heart right with God; it makes your heart acceptable to Him; that’s the reason you know in your heart that God loves and accepts you, but that’ll not change the circumstances of your life. For your situation to change or to maintain a life of continuous progress and triumph, it’s got to be by your faith.

Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith is calling real that which you’ve hoped for; you count it done now! It’s like the title-deed to a property. You don’t have to be in the property to know it’s yours; faith is the title deed. Take a hold of God’s Word and affirm your healing and health, prosperity, success, and victory in Christ Jesus! The second part of Romans 10:10 says, “…with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Say this to yourself:

My faith is the victory that overcomes the world; nothing is impossible unto me! I live victoriously today because I live in, and by, the Word; I’ve taken hold of my victorious life in Christ Jesus, basking gloriously in health, peace, prosperity, success, and abundance, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
