“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” Luke 4:4 (KJV)
When should one believe that his prayers have received answers from God? The word of God says, ” Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, When ye pray, believe that ye received them and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24 (KJV). When we have prayed to God about our needs, we are to accept that God has granted the request. The physical manifestation comes after.
This is what Heb.11:1 says that faith is. That scripture says: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (KJV). This truth should settle in our hearts. Yes! there will be pressures, anxieties, symptons, threats, phone calls, etc. In Luke 4:4, Jesus says “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” It implies that we must continue to depend on every word of God no matter what physical evidences suggest or portrays.
Great faith leaders like Daniel experienced it. His delieverance did not come until he got to the den of lions. God had plans to destroy Daniel’s enemies in their own craftiness and so allowed the process.
Have you prayed? believe that you have received what you asked God to give you and You must keep believing. God will not fail. He told me in my prayer time “I am the God of all flesh, is anything too hard for me?” Jer.32:27.
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent; hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Num.23:19(KJV)
