EDITOR — James 1:5-7 says: “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.”
The scripture expressly says that God gives generously to all without finding fault but there is a stipulated condition for receiving from God, you must believe and not doubt because without faith it is impossible to please God.
So God has made a provision for us to receive from him, therefore do not blame him for not answering your prayers but you must work on your faith and believe whatever the Spirit says to you, either through the written word or the spoken word.
Hebrews 4:3 “Now we who have believed enter that rest, just as God has said, so I declared on oath in my anger, they shall never enter my rest.
And yet his works have been finished since the creation of the world.”
God’s benefits have been made available for all to receive before the very foundation of the world.
There is no need for God to come down from heaven and give you a house or a car because he has created a system for you to receive everything before the very foundation of the world.
Consider what the scripture says in Ephesians 1:3 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”
The word of God clearly states (in the past tense) that God has blessed us with every blessing.
Note that, it does not say will bless us after a fasting or can bless us or even must bless us.
Past tense means the provision has already been made.
Let us consider some well known spiritual blessings; healing, seeing visions, performs signs, miracles and wonders, prophesying, speaking in tongues and interpreting them, word of knowledge, even walking upon water and raising the dead.
If you are a believer and yet none of this happens to you when the Bible clearly says (in the past tense) God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing then you need to interrogate yourself.
What ever is born of the spirit is spiritual how then is it that none of the above takes place in your life?
Rather you are plundered and victimised daily, left, right and centre by demons and ancestral spirits?
