God Thinking LXXXIV - How To Get From Believing To Receiving 3

Isn’t this what prayer is?  You asking God to intervene on this side, and do, what you cannot?

If you want to live with expectation that God will intervene, you should expect that God has already revealed to you what your part must be in bringing this relationship to pass? 

Do you believe that God has already provided the necessary components that you would need to build a proper relationship with God?

Is it possible that during the everyday maintenance of providing for the natural?
Going to school - Preparing meals
Working a job - Doing the chores
Nurturing a relationship - Driving the kids to school
Answering phone calls - Changing careers
Repairing the car - Tinkering with Christmas lights
Is it possible that during the everyday maintenance of providing for the natural - that you haven’t spent enough time developing the supernatural?

This pattern that I am going to reveal today is the plan that God designed, so that you can learn more about God’s supernatural intervention and learn how to operate in agreement with what God is doing, while you are taking care of those things that need attending to in the natural.

Lord, I want to get from believing to receiving.
First an overview:
God designed you to receive Him and receive from Him by His Word - Reading the Word and hearing God speak through the reading of the Word or hearing the Word (Logo)
preached or spoken.  

In your hearing faith is conceived and when faith is nurtured by the Word, faith provides proof that you can agree with.
When you agree with God, what you heard from God, by faith you agree to believe what God has said.

Once you believe God - believe what God has said, then there is a season of abiding in the belief of what God has said - staying - abiding in agreement with what God has said so that your faith can grow to where you can receive."
