It Starts From Within

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:24).

The word "receive" as used above is the Greek: lambano; and it means to seize or take hold of something and make it yours. This kind of receiving is done first from within, that is, from your spirit. That's because faith is from your spirit, and if you must change anything in your situation or circumstance, the change must begin first from within.

The Bible declares in Romans 10:10 that ''...with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." If you need a miracle, or want to see a change in a particular situation, you must believe and receive it first from within. In other words, you must see the invisible first.

I remember when, as a little girl, our younger daughter was diagnosed with a paralytic condition. My husband and I refused to accept it; instead, we chose to see the invisible. We listened to faith-building messages everyday; and our faith was stirred, we got up, paced the floor, declaring, "We refuse to fear, in the Name of Jesus. Our daughter is walking, in the Name of Jesus!" We prayed, laid hands on her limbs, and spoke God's Word to her body day and night, like this, month after month. Guess what? She was healed, and today she's a walking miracle!

But back then, even when she couldn't walk, we refused to see or call her anything but healthy and strong. We saw her walking first from within. You must see that change or miracle you desire first in your spirit. If you've been sick, you've got to picture yourself healed and doing all what you couldn't hitherto. Take hold of your healing from your spirit and then declare it by faith in the Name of Jesus. You can do this for just about any situation in which you want to see a change. It's a principle given to us in God's Word and it works every time.

My spirit is flooded with the light of God's Word, and I see and apprehend what belongs to me by faith. Therefore I declare that I live in divine health and prosperity; I enjoy success and victory every day, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!
