This video was recorded with my dearly departed Tonia. During her last few years on this planet we spent a great deal of time together to no plan of our own. I was blessed to leave my corporate job and pursue my own business ventures which gave me the time to driver her to school daily and we did a lot of hanging out.

We spent a lot of time in the Word of God. Tonia is a true testament to the scripture in Hebrews that tells us how “some even died in faith never having received the promise.” I watched her as she proclaimed her faith to the end. She was adamant that I maintain my faith and never give up.

I believe there is purpose even in death. One minister friend of mine said that he believed her death was a call for all of us to pray and continue praying and to boldly proclaim what we believe.

One of the things Tonia said is that “The people should pray until it happens…” I kept hearing this over and over. One of the things I learned in this is to be alert, pay attention to everything going on around you. Pray and keep praying… fast if you have to to get the end result you want. The other thing I learned is that

God is always talking to us. But we don’t always hear Him or cannot hear Him because of the noise. If we do hear Him we may be afraid to do what He says.

Don’t be afraid to do what you believe God instructs you to do. You may have a prompting, you may hear a small voice or you may have intuition about what to do in certain situations. Do it by faith.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
2 Timothy 2:16 – KJV

Have you ever thought about why you believe the stuff you believe?

Many time we are blinded by people in authority we respect and are influenced by and so we believe whatever they tell us without a second thought. (View on YouTube instead.)

Knowing the truth begins with a sincere desire to know the truth for yourself. Don’t take the words of me. Research everything someone tells you. Ask questions.

Pray this prayer: “Father, help me in my belief. Lead me to what is good and what is true  Show me what the truth really is so that I know the truth for myself.

Is there something you know that is supposed to happen for you but it hasn’t happened yet? However you know it will happen “one day.” It may be a promotion on your job, a new car, a business idea, healing in your body, or a spouse. I mention all these tangible things because these are things we can see.

The good news is that God has already provided all these things. They come built into the promises of God when we accept him into our lives. Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek the Kingdom of God first and “these things” (promises) will be added to us. He wants to give us what we desire. Jesus died so we can have abundant life.

I have heard people say and I have said myself, “God won’t bless me unless I do this or that.” However we want to make sure we are not limiting God with our words. God has given us power and authority to speak His promises on ourselves. The promises of God are Yes and Amen.

God is a God of order and he tells us in Proverbs that we must plan so we can be successful. He also says that while we may make plans He has the last word. I believe we should plan and prepare. It is “part of” our act of faith. Then there comes a time where we have done enough planning and preparation and studying and practice and we must “Go Get” what He said was ours. Things may never line up perfectly until you launch. Don’t allow obstacles or even your own short comings stop you.

I encourage you to GO GET what is yours. Don’t limit God. Everything is about time. But don’t miss your appointed time. Could it be that God has been trying to bless you right now but you have not accepted it? Has someone offered you help or assistance? Maybe someone gave you a coupon to the Spa and you are walking around with back pain. Use the coupon!

I remember a time I was spending money regularly for car repairs. My car was paid for. My son kept advising me to get a new one. But I did not want a car note and he helped me realize that I was paying a car note and then some with all the repairs I was paying for. At the time I could not “see” being able to afford a new car… In short, I heeded his advice. Not only was I able to afford the car, but I paid it off in 18 months instead of 5 years.

Review your plans and assess your progress. You may find You are more ready than you thought. Maybe He wants you to move into that house today despite your credit. Maybe your promotion happens today instead of after you get the degree. Go get your customers now and perfect the business model as you go! Many times the preparation and planning is so “we” can feel comfortable when God is saying I have given you everything you need for success.

 

PRAY THIS PRAYER:

“Father, I remove any obstacles or hindrance preventing me from receiving “what you have promised me” (fill in the blank). I forgive those who have hurt or offended me and ask forgiveness for myself of any offense.

I ask you to open my eyes so I can see what I have not been seeing before. Show me what to do next…  who to talk to and where to go. Let my words be the right words. I open my heart now to receive what you have promised me, in Jesus name. Amen”
