Put Your Prayers in Past Tense

“…Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying.And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me..” John 11:41, NKJV.

Jesus’ words provide wonderful insight into how to receive from God. Right before commanding Lazarus to rise from the dead, Jesus thanked God, His Father, that He had already heard Him before a miracle ever took place.

God has already provided for you and given you everything you need that pertains to life and godliness in Christ. Thank Him for what He has already done through Jesus. Our situations will stay in our present until we begin to push them in the past.

If you’re in desperate need of wisdom. Instead of praying, “Lord, please give me wisdom regarding this situation.” Pray, “Lord, I thank you that you have laid up sound wisdom for me and given me wisdom in this situation. I receive it now by faith (see Proverbs 2:7).” Watch wisdom begin to flow. If your family needs a financial breakthrough. Instead of pleading for a financial miracle, say, “Lord, I thank you for providing supernaturally for my home according to your promise to supply all my need (see Philippians 4:19).” This will cause your faith to kick into gear and you’ll see God provide supernaturally for you.

We are called to live by faith, not by what we see, or hear, or feel. And we can appropriate by faith every redemptive right and any blessing God has provided us through Jesus by thanking Him for what He has already done.

Prayer: Father, thank you for teaching me how to receive from you and live by faith. Thank you that you have heard me. Thank you that you have healed and delivered me, and You have given me strength and wisdom. Thank you for helping me push everything I see in front of me, into the past, and thank you for what you’ve already done. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

(Read Romans 4:17)

Bless the Lord , O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
