Many Christians have been made to think God is up there in heaven , maybe ticked off at man ,not willing stretch his hand towards us to bless us . We must therefore by our prayers provoke him to move ! There are some preachers who have made a ministry around this thinking . They suggest that God can , but isn’t willing to do anything on earth unless man sends forth prayers to God .This thinking is very dangerous because it makes God the variable and puts the blame on Him.
If our prayers doesn’t seem answered ,we make statements like “oh maybe God does not want me to be healed “, or “God is angry with me for something “. This is wrong.
Contrary to this popular belief , prayer does not move God neither does our faith . He’s not moved by anything we do here on earth. The only time he moved was when his son came to die for our sins .Hear this and be astonished,God isn’t blessing anyone anymore . He isn’t healing people any longer . He already did that 2000 years ago .
1 Peter 2:24 says
By whose stripes ye were healed ( past ).
What glad tidings for such words to fall on our hearts . When we understand this our faith will go through the roof. Because it is easier to believe in something you already have than believe in something you are yet to receive .
When we believe God has already done his part and that we are already blessed ,the rest of our Christian lives would be spent renewing our minds to accept what has already been deposited in our spirits .
We don’t need God to move .We rather have to move towards God . Moving towards God implies taking the blame off God . It means acknowledging what God has already done and receiving it by faith .
God has already provided everything we will ever need by grace . He has already blessed us with all spiritual blessings. In our spirits we are blessed beyond measure . We don’t lack a thing . The reason you don’t see God’s provisions in your life isn’t because God is withholding them or is waiting for you to pray or serve him perfectly . It is just because you haven’t received by faith what he’s already provided. Faith is simply a positive responds to what God has already provided by grace .
God does not need to move in your life ! He isn’t the one who is stuck . He moved over 2000 years ago by the death of Jesus Christ . He isn’t waiting on you to put up with your best behaviour before he blesses you. He’s already done that.
The book of Ephesians was written from the perspective that it is already done.
In Ephesians 1:3 , it says
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
The scriptures didn’t say God is going to bless us . No ! God has already deposited every blessing we will ever need in our born again spirits . It’s a done deal !
You don’t have to pray for more of God’s blessings . That’s just unbelief. Praying for God’s blessings mean you are doubting what he has said in his word .
Take the blame off God. God is not the problem , we are !
