How to Trust God to Get Your Answer

How to trust God to get your answer. Keys to victorious faith.

We are to pray always no matter what the circumstances are. We are not to listen to what others say; we are to walk by faith and live according to the Word of God.

So many people sit down with their “grocery list” or their “wish list” to God and ask Him: “Help me, bless, me, do for me, change them” prayers. That my friend is not how we are supposed to pray. We are to pray according to the Word of God – period! We are to pray always and not worry! We are to pray and stand on the Word of God!

Ephesians 6:18 tells us to “Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty.”

Paul tells us in this verse to pray with all matters of prayer or another translation says with all kinds of prayer. There are various kinds of prayer according to the New Testament: prayer that changes things, the prayer of thanksgiving and praise, and the prayer of dedication and worship.

How do we face things in our life which seem impossible? Well if you are a child of God then you have a Father in Heaven who makes the impossible possible! Our responsibility is to know how to access the proper way to pray in order to see God move in our life!

The book of James tells us we have not because we ask not {James 4:2}. Then he goes on to say the reason we are going without is because when we are praying we ask amiss. {4:3} That means it is one thing to not pray and it is another thing to pray but not pray accurately. We must learn to pray accurately!

What if we need healing in our bodies and it is an impossible situation according to the natural. Well my friend the Word tells us all things are possible with God! We must learn to let God’s Word be final authority in our lives, not what a doctor says. What the doctor is telling you may indeed be a fact but the Word of God is truth!

Remember you are the one who has the choice – you choose who you are going to believe! Whose report shall you believe? Will you believe the report of the Lord {The Bible} or will you believe the report of the doctor, or your bank account, or your child saying they will not serve the Lord! You have the choice! You must determine that the Lord’s Word IS final authority in your life! What you see in the natural may be real however, God’s Word is the highest form of authority and you must act on what the Word says! I remind myself everything we see has an expiration date- it will change, it will expire! But God’s Word never changes or expires!

Have you done all you know to do and have not been getting anywhere? Then it is time to learn to pray the prayer of petition! The prayer of petition is the prayer which gets the quickest results in impossible looking situations.

Under the category of the prayer that changes things there is the prayer of agreement, the prayer of loosing and binding, the prayer of petition and supplication, and the prayer of intercession. When these prayers are prayed according to the Word of God they are prayers that change things. Do you need some changes in your life?

The prayer of Agreement when prayed according to Matthew 18:18-20 will cover every circumstance in life. The first thing to do is agree with the Word. Read the scriptures that cover your circumstance and pray THAT scripture over your situation.

The prayer of binding and loosing stops Satan’s activities. Matthew 12:29, Luke 10: 19 give you the right to stop the enemy in his tracks. Then pray Matthew 18:18 over the enemy binding him from your situation.

The prayer of petition and supplication is a formal request. You go into God’s presence knowing what your rights are {as His child} and what you have need of and you stand on the promise of Philippians 4:6 “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

To pray the prayer of petition you must first spend time with God and His Word; you must take the time to research the Word to find out what it says about your healing, finances, lost loved ones, wayward spouse, or any impossible situation you are facing. {Petition also means a formal application in writing; so I like to write out the prayers I am declaring over my situation. However, this is not a magical formula, just something I do} Then we do as Jesus said In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name…” Therefore we are to ask the Father in Jesus Name and according to 1 John 5:14-15 we can ask anything in God’s will and it builds our confidence in the fact that God hears us, and therefore if we know He hears us, then we also know that He WILL grant us the petitions we have asked of Him!

When we research the Word for our situation and pray that promise over our life we are now basing our petition or prayer according to the known will of God! Remember His will is ALWAYS His Word! If it is in His Word it IS His will! He already said it and promised it to us in His Word; we must take it, declare it, and stand on it!
