Believe That You Have Received It

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” 
-Mark 11:24- 

There are many reasons why God does not answer prayer.
The common reason is that we live in sin.
Now, let’s assume that in overall sense, we live a sanctified life.

Whatever things we pray for, as long as it is within God’s will, let us believe that we have received it even as we are waiting.

The season of waiting can be filled with anxiety.
We may struggle with the following thought.
-Does God keep His promise?
-Does God care about me?
-Why does God grant my friend’s prayer but not mine?

How do we fight back this anxious thought?
By believing that we have received our request.
It is difficult to do this, indeed, as we often move by physical senses.
However, isn’t that why we need faith?  
It is the evidence of things not seen.

How do we know we believe we have received it?
When we can feel His peace in our heart and mind (Phil 4:7).
We may not feel His peace after one or two prayers.
But, we can feel  it if we persist on prayer.

We may pray for financial blessing, physical healing, family salvation or a life partner.
Let’s believe that we have received the answer to our prayer.
And in His timing, His answer will come.
