Whatever you’re believing for is what you make room to receive. It’s a principle of agreement that actually produces an expectation in the spiritual realm.
If you come into agreement with negative thoughts, you are actually making room to receive the fulfillment of your fears, and whatever negative words that you speak. Faith works on the opposite spectrum.
Jesus said we would have whatever we believed we would have, and He taught on the principal of agreement. Speak life. Jesus never made room for death. He always prepared for life because HE IS LIFE.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, and so is His resurrection power, to bring forth life. Make room for what you believe by welcoming His Spirit and His life to flow where it’s needed.
If you read Matthew 9:23-24, a ruler came searching out Jesus and ask for his daughter to be healed because she was near death. The first thing Jesus said was MAKE ROOM… in other words he was saying enlarge your faith, step aside and watch Me do the impossible. We have to make room for the miracle to come in!
Faith always requires an action to trigger God’s response. Faith is not passive. When we really grab hold of this truth, it causes people to get up and do something they wouldn’t have done otherwise. It causes them to partner their faith, their conversation and their worship with God.
Backing up in that portion of scripture, in Matthew 9:18, it said that the ruler came and WORSHIPED before making his request. When we come before the king, protocol dictates that we bring a gift. Worship is our gift to God. Sometimes we also need to ask, “God what would you have me do as an act of faith to show you that I’m really believing you for this to occur?”
Sometimes, He will drop a thought into our hearts of something we need to do as something practical or even a prophetic act. When I was believing for a child and was told I couldn’t get pregnant, we went out and bought a little baby outfit and prayed over it and called that child forth, prophesying into my womb.
I declare healing scriptures over myself until my condition changed. There have been other things that we have done when we were standing on other promises. Faith takes a corresponding action to partner with God so that we can receive what we’re asking for.
Praying the Scriptures for Revival and Restoration
Speak life! The natural realm is subjective to God’s spiritual laws. Therefore, when we declare God’s word over troubling circumstances, sooner or later the natural earthly realm must yield in submission to the higher spiritual laws contained in the scriptures.
This is the way God purposed it, and that is why we can boldly and confidently proclaim, “Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven!”
Speak the scriptures and the declarations in faith and expect God to turn that situation around!
Your word is truth. I believe it, and I’m putting my trust in the integrity of who You are. You are holy. You sacrificed your very own life for me, for my household… and for (insert name of person you are praying for).
Your word says in Romans 8:32, He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? I believe in You, Lord Jesus. You would not have died in our place if You did not intend to give us what we ask for and need in order to live in health and wholeness.
You said in John 10:10 that You came to give us abundant life, so I am asking on (_______’s) behalf, that You give him/her the abundant life that You promised.
I stand in faith and remind You of Your promises, and as I declare Your word to You, I ask that You release the power contained in Your word to accomplish all Your will and purpose. I ask You to release angels to carry out the fulfillment of Your promises.
Therefore, in the name and authority that You have given me as Your blood-bought child, and as a co-heir along with Christ, I do declare:
“Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death,” Psalm 68:20.
Declaration: Father, I thank You that You have saved (_____) and delivered him/her from death according to Your word in Psalm 68:20.
