As a child of God, there is no longer any reason to wonder if God wants to bless you. It was forever settled that issue at the cross. The waters are flowing from the Rock (Jesus Christ). Because of this eternal truth, we can expect to be blessed, redeemed and healed in every area of our lives. There are eight points that explain how the miracle is your mouth and how you can speak it forth.
1. How You See God Affects How You Receive From Him
How you see God will affect your faith and how you receive from Him. Do you see an angry God? Or do you see a gracious, giving Father?
Your perception of God will determine the quality of your relationship with Him and this affects everything else.
When you see Him as He really is a gracious, giving Father, it will put so much faith in your heart to receive from Him that if it’s a miracle you need it is a miracle you will get.
Many see God as a strict disciplinarian who is ready to strike you down because of sin. They believe that God puts poverty, sickness, and disease on them to punish them.
God is not like that. He is a father who is always thinking of ways to put a smile on your face. Matthew 7:11 says,
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heave give good things to those who ask Him!
Right now He is thinking of you and He has a smile on His face because He has something wonderful prepared for you.
2. Faith Is Best When You Know God’s Love
In your time of need, receiving from God becomes easy if you will see Him as a gracious Father who responds immediately to your cries. You will then expect a miracle from a God of mercy.
Don’t get me wrong, God does teach us. But He does not teach us with tragedy, accidents, or sickness.
So how does God teach us? He uses His Word to discipline or train us. If there is an area in your life that needs to be corrected, God will speak to your heart about it. Sometimes it may come through a sermon or even your spouse (watch out).
You may not like what you hear, but you need to know that He is doing it for your benefit because you are His child and He loves you (Hebrews 12:5-11 – Amplified Bible).
3. Stop Complaining - Trust God in Every Situation
Your current situation is not your future destination!
Don’t have a complaining attitude. Even if you don’t understand why you are in your current circumstance and you can’t see a way out of it, trust the Lord to supply the waters you need because He has been smitten for your blessings.
Look to the cross and the finished work of Christ.
The Bible tells us that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
So don’t grumble if you have a flat tire. Don’t grumble if you are stuck in traffic. God may be delaying you because of a fatal situation ahead.
4. He Sees beyond the Physical - Trust God
God is all knowing and all seeing. And He wants us to see beyond the physical too. Hebrews 11:1 declares, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. So don’t go by what you can or can’t see.
Don’t base your faith on your environment or your experiences. Don’t base it on what you cannot see. You can’t see air but you have the faith when you breathe it is going to be there.
If you are facing difficulties and challenges, and what you see tells you that there is no hope, turn your eyes instead to God and His Word. Put your faith in the finished work of the Son. God is a good God!
5. Don't Quit Before You Get Your Blessing
God will not forget your request. You may have forgotten about it, but God hasn’t. God is faithful to His promises. His Son paid for your blessings with His blood. And God is faithful to what His Son has done.
Quitters never win. Don't quit!
6. The River is Flowing
When Jesus died, the river of blessings was unleashed for you. Whatever you need today has been released to you because of Jesus’ perfect sacrifice, not because of your good works.
As long as you are a child of God, there is no longer any reason to wonder if God wants to bless you. He has forever settled that issue at the cross. The Rock (Jesus) has been struck and the waters are following.
