Why We Should Be Taking God for Granted.
The realm we inhabit in the spirit is never about problems; it’s only about promises because they are the language of Heaven. This is the place where we are learning to take God for granted because when He says something, He intends to fulfill it. When we are in peace and rest in this truth, it makes Him happy. We’re trusting Him!
Where the world constantly focuses on problems and negativity, the Kingdom sees possibilities and solutions.
The shift from problem-focused thinking to Kingdom minded possibilities is where we experience the abundance He has for us in Christ.
I had a season with the Lord, where He would not let me earn any money for nearly nine months, but He had promised to provide everything we needed. Everyday my family and I prayed and thanked the Lord for what we needed, and He always took care of us.
We had breakfast coming in everyday. I would pray with my children at night, and ask them,
“What do you kids want for breakfast tomorrow?”
They would order, and it would show up on the doorstep the next morning.
I ran my car for months without putting gas in it. If we were driving down the road, and the engine started to die, I would turn around and ask the kids, “Who’s not speaking in tongues?” We would all pray out loud, the car would pick back up, and we would get to our destination.
My children grew up knowing how to get their needs met, and now they are moving into their inheritance. If you got a prophecy, or a scripture, then you have an inheritance.
Promises are our currency and we can start believing God for their fulfillment.
We might not know how or when we will see a promise fulfilled, but we can always be confident in the One who gave us our promises.
God wants us to take Him for granted so we can experience the fullness He has for us.
Meditate on these words from 2 Peter 1:2.
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”
God is moving us from a place of getting our needs met to experiencing everything He has granted us pertaining to life and godliness.
He’s given us precious and magnificent promises so that we can become partakers of His divine nature.
So what are the scriptures, prophetic words, and promises that God has given you?
We shouldn’t be taking these lightly because God wants us to keep them at the front of our lives and our walk with Him. Jesus is a quickening Spirit and He is looking to partner with us to see them become our reality.
Let’s continue to explore what God has for us!
