Years back I had given so many things away and was faithful in tithing. I had given cars away, watches, jewelry, electronics money to strangers, you name it. The Bible says give and it shall be given unto you. But I wasn't seeing it.
So one day after being enrolled in a Charismatic Bible college I took a Kenneth Hagen Faith study course. The course was great and it said faith is a now word in the present tense and you had to put action to your faith in order to see things manifest. It also said to remind God of his word. So I got to thinking that I didn't see a blessing from giving and maybe that was because I didn't have the right faith and action. So one of the ways to put action to your faith was to speak it out, the course said. So I started to remind God of the times I gave and remind him of what His word says about giving and then speak that all the blessings will come now because faith is a now word.
As His Word Promises
So I would see a return tenfold, not tomorrow, not next week or year but now. I started speaking that out constantly and I even told my pastor and he said, "Well Adam sometimes God gives back and blesses you in other ways in time as you work toward things and work" and I said, "No God's word says give and it shall be given unto you and it will happen now because faith is a now word." And sure enough two weeks later a close friend called and said his brother just died. And he has to go get things out of his house and if I went with him he would give me some things. I ended up getting new computers, a real Rolex watch, a brand new motorcycle with only 100 miles on it, a SUV, jewelry and gold, and everything else you could think of then a few months later I was given a nice house free.
God came through, and He brought forth the blessings just as His word promised. I just had to speak it forth and to expect it now in the present tense despite what others said. Standing on the promises of God works if you put faith and action with it. Are you believing God for your miracle today? God wants to bring it through, can you believe God for it? There were some other reasons why God would want to bless me though as I walked out my faith in a very Christlike commitment and did an act of love and sacrifice that will last for many years but that is a story for another time. I believe Gods word if it promises you something you can have it.
I love the song "I Hope You Dance." If you have never heard it you can look it up on YouTube and listen to it. As I look back on my life I can honestly say I danced. I may have failed sometimes but even though I could have chosen to do nothing in life I tried. I had some success, and some let downs but I wasn't willing to settle for the path of least resistance. I stepped out in faith many times, even when I didn't have to.
We are to desire the gifts of the spirit and especially prophecy. The Bible says in the last days I will poor out my spirit on all flesh. It says your sons and daughters shall prophesy and your old men shall dream dreams. So in the last days people will be hearing from God through prophecy, dreams and visions. We can also hear the Lord through that inner voice or some people and audible voice sometimes but mostly an inner voice. But are these things reliable? Can we always go by prophecy, dreams, visions and that voice? The truth is no. I have heard from the Lord for others many times.
Are you waiting for good things to come? Sometimes good things are on the way from God but it may take time. I can remember when God used to do good things and answer prayer within a few days. He was always doing something in lightning speed and doing something often. But as time goes on God wants to develop faith and patience in us and He doesn't answer as fast as he used to or may not be doing as much things. That doesn't mean He is not going to do it. It just means we have to be patient. Maybe you have been waiting for a while, well its coming.
