- The key to receiving is to believe.
- You can be happy.
- Dare to dream big.
Beloved, Jesus said that all things are possible to him who believes.
Isaiah 1:19 says:
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Does that sound too easy? Beloved, it really is that simple. God wants the best for His children. He wants us to be happy, healthy, and prosperous. He wants us to have nice things and do well in life. He wants to love on us and bless us, the same way that any good earthly father would.
Jesus spoke these Words to His disciples:
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Now, you might be thinking, “But Brother Cerullo, I am sure that the Lord wants me to have the things that I need, but I am not sure that I can actually have the things that I desire.”
Take a look also at the 34th Psalm:
The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
When you seek the Lord, and truly believe in your heart the Words that He has spoken to us in the Bible, then those very Words will come to life and fulfill what you need and ask for.
… If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
The key to receiving is to BELIEVE! Now, don’t take that too lightly; you may need to get in the Word for a while and meditate on the promises before you get to that place of true belief. But rest assured:
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?
Beloved, don’t let the devil tell you that you can’t have something that you need or desire. If you read the Scriptures, you will see that we are told repeatedly that God wants to bless us — with healing, finances, a strong marriage — the smallest things to the largest things.
A sweet lady told me recently how she desired a particular kind of table to set her tea cup on next to her chair. The image she had in her head was for something she hadn’t really seen before. She didn’t mention it to anyone, and she didn’t even pray over it, but only a few days after having the thought, she walked into a store and found exactly what she wanted.
Beloved, that was the gift of a sweet Father who just wanted to dote on His daughter. And make no mistake, He loves all of us just the same.
Say this faith declaration out loud: Lord, thank You for loving me so much! Thank You for caring about the things that I care about. I choose to believe Your Words. I will meditate on them until they come alive within me so that I can truly “believe” for the things that I need and want.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
… with God all things are possible.
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
