Often in the Body of Christ we hear a minister talk about his testimony and how God came through with a miracle for them. They will tell us the steps they took and the things that they did, and then we will try to do the same thing and wonder why it didn’t work for us. Do you know what I am talking about? Have you ever tried it? I know I have and it has only left me disappointed and seemingly hopeless.
If you visit a Christian bookstore you will see the shelves filled with books that tell us how to ‘get’ our healing or prosperity or peace, whatever it is we need, there are hundreds of books telling us how to get ‘it.’
As for my own personal walk, as I have walked through challenging times, there have been so many well-meaning people tell me what they thought I should do. They would say ‘well, if you will fast for 21 days, it will break.’ Or they would tell me if I would check my heart about this or perhaps I had done this wrong. While they were all well-meaning, I learned some valuable lessons through this. Only you and God know where you have walked, no one else, and you should seek God alone for your answers.
Another lesson that has been instilled in me is that no one knows the way God is taking you but you and Him. Follow him. Don’t try to do it a way someone else has done it. It may not work for you. Sure, God may have shown them revelation for themselves but that was for them, it may not be your way out. Seek God and He will show you your way out, after all, He is the way.
I have said it before and it bears repeating; you can’t try marriage and you can’t try God. Either you’re married or you’re not and either you serve and trust God or you don’t. You simply can’t try Him and you can’t try methods just because someone else used them and expect them to work. The only thing that will never ever fail you is the word of God. And you can’t ‘try’ that either. I have heard people say that they tried standing on the word of God and it didn’t work, that is simply not true. What happened was the word of God tried them and they failed, they gave up, or their words did not line up with what His word says. The word never fails.
Then why, you may ask, does it seem like the word failed? Why, when it says that all things are possible to him that believes? Simple. All things ARE possible to him that BELIEVES. Everything is based on your capacity to believe.
Perhaps the problem is your capacity to believe. You see, maybe God has said ‘I am going to give you a new home’ and perhaps your faith isn’t there, you just can’t believe it. Well, until you believe it, you can’t receive it. So you have to do something about what you are believing. The Bible says ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.’ Therefore, you have to get more word in you. You have to begin to operate in one of the Kingdom Keys, Joshua 1:8.
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
If you are having trouble believing for the miracle you need, you have to change what you believe. We all have many devices that have a reset button, you have to reset your belief. You see, what is constricting you is not what you see with your natural eyes, it’s not that you can’t figure out a way, that is not what is limiting you. What is limiting you is what is on the inside of you.
God spoke something to my heart months ago, when I was seeking Him for change. He said ‘everything must change on the inside before anything will change on the outside.’ And my friend, that is Biblical. The Bible says, ‘my beloved, I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.’
When you begin to change what you see on the inside, everything on the outside will change. That comes by meditating on the word of God day and night. I can assure you that if you really want change and are willing to pay a price for it, you can have it. All you have to do is to keep the word of God in you, coming out of you and before your face 24/7. If you do that, things will absolutely change.
Now, let me go back to trying to do it someone else way. The reason what worked for one person may not work for you is this; for them, it was revelation, for you it is only information. Information has no anointing on it. But revelation, that’s a different story. In Deuteronomy 29:29, the Bible says, ‘the secret things belong to the Lord, but those things that are revealed to us belong to us.’
Once it becomes revelation to us, it is ours. It must become revelation to us before that word will manifest. But as long as you are just trying it based on what it did for someone else, or what someone else says that word do, it may never happen for you.
How then do you change the information to revelation? You ask God to give you the revealed truth you need for your situation, then you meditate the word concerning your need,and revelation will come. And when it hits you, it will come quickly, like a light turning on. Suddenly it becomes revelation to you, then it is yours. You have created a new image inside you, you have reset your belief and now, it is according to what you believe.
Don’t ever try to do what someone else did. You are not a carbon copy, you are an original and God has a way of escape for you. He has revealed truth for you to bring you out into victory, seek Him for it. He is more eager for you to get the revelation than you are to get it.
If you change one thing today, change this; begin to ask God for revelation for your situation and then meditate the word of God. I promise you will see things change, as you seek first His Kingdom, His way of doing things.
