Mark 11:24; Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

We need to visualize ourselves where we want to be - in life or in health, as if it has already  happened.  If we believe we have received it, it will be ours.  

We live in the future. We are in the future.  We stay there.   We do not look at, or accept, what seems to be in front of us.  

Ephesians 3:20;  

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly

beyond all that we ask or think, 

according to the power that works within us,

“who is able to do more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think”  Really!!! 
 

"According to the power" (of the Holy Spirit) "that works within us"

 

That means the Holy Spirit  (if we have chosen to have one) is supporting us, beyond all that we ask for or even can think of!  That we can be unbelievably powerful with faith and belief!

 

When I told others about this joyful news, they would look at me in preferred disbelief.

Hebrews 11:1; Now faith is confidence

in what we hope for and

assurance about what we do not see. 

* “faith is the confidence” = we have faith/expect and we are confident.
* “in what we hope for” = what we really want.
* “Assurance about what we do not see” = we are assured that it will happen even though we cannot see it - we 'know'.

We can see that the universe "was formed at God's command" and it was made out of nothing.  That was how the universe and everything in it was formed.  It makes sense that the things we want would be formed the same way: Out of nothing (from our imagination) through faith and belief.

Luke 11:9;  (Jesus speaking).

"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you;

seek and you will find;

knock and the door will be opened to you."

 

"Seek and you will find"  =  Search and you will find what you are looking for.

“Ask and it will be given to you".  =  you will get what you ask for.

"Knock and the door will be opened to you."   (having found what you were looking for you will need to knock at that door to get involved with that opportunity)

It does not say knock a few times and give up.

It is FAITH and BELIEF that will make it happen.

Mark 9:23;

 “If you can?” said Jesus

“Everything is possible for one who believes.”

Everything - everything - "everything

 

is possible for one who believes"

2 Corinthians 5:7;  For we walk by faith, not by sight.

It  takes faith to ignore what the 'natural' (what we see and hear) is telling us

 

and live and walk in our vision.  

Matthew 9:20–22;

“Then a woman who had been bleeding for twelve years came up behind Jesus and touched the hem of his clothes. She thought, ‘If I only touch his robe I’ll be healed.’

When Jesus turned and saw her, He said, "Be encouraged, daughter. Your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that time on.

This woman had FAITH.  She could have been stoned to death for such a deed, because she had a problem of blood and was considered 'unclean'.  She had lived this way for 12 years!

Her unwavering and adamant faith took her to Jesus  and because of this, she was healed.

Hebrews 11:6;

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

Those who do not have faith cannot please God. 

and without faith God is not going to reward us,

because without true faith

we are not believing that He can reward us - "rewards those who ernestly seek Him."

ATTITUDE, TIME, AND TRUST

Proverbs 17:22; A joyful heart helps healing, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

 

Luke 8:50; When Jesus heard this, he responded, "Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”

I live my life joyfully, and why wouldn't I?  If I believe the future that I want is in the here and now (even if in the natural, it isn't), and if I know that it is the real reality (not what I see around me) and I live in that future, then why wouldn't I be full of joy?

If I have God by my side helping, what more powerful force could I have?

Sometimes it is a process, and it takes time.  Just trust in the Lord, and He will always provide.

What works for me is a vision board, which is a board, paper, or.....? with pictures of my desired future visions on it. I take a long time to choose exactly what I want or close to it.   

 

I tend to put mine where I see it often like on the fridge or even on my computer desktop, or cell phone.  If board or paper, I splurge on a full color print at an Office Depot type place.  Then, with the help of the vision board, that is where I live.  I live in that future and it is where I have to be if it is going to happen for me.

It can be quite difficult at first because the reality of the present keeps reasserting itself through people, brain messages and Satan, but I color everything with the future I am living in.  What really helps is living in God's presence and holding the hand of His Holy Spirit who readily agrees with me (as you can see from the Bible verses above).  God knows the universe He created, and He knows how He created and changed it, and how we can change our circumstances using His tools.

2 times a hurricane was going to hit us directly.  I did what I have told you above and in both occasions it went either around us or further North.

This is great except when it comes to the negative.  Just the lightest, even fleeting, negative thought goes into play with a resounding thud! I have found myself fall foul to this on several occasions.   Then I have to begin the up-hill climb to pure faith/belief all over again.  Not difficult, but irritating, at least for me.

WARNING: SATAN; Satan likes to enter negatives into your mind, and into the body's thought systems. See 'YOU, YOUR BRAIN AND YOUR MINDespecially as we get closer to God.

The body gets alarmed and sends negative messages to your mind. The body will even manifest pains, which if we get concerned or worry about - we get.

Faith and belief require adamant and complete non-acceptance of negatives from whatever source.

If you believe strongly enough, there is nothing Satan or his demons See 'SATAN, WHO HE IS'.
