Stop hoping and start being. Hope gets us in position to believe, but it is only step one in the process of achieving one’s desires. Daydream no longer. It is time to feel the desire realized from the end point. Do not get bogged down in how, this is God’s part, but see it from the completed point and God will move that mountain. But to move the mountain, we have to see and feel it already moved. We cannot say I believe that mountain will be moved, for that statement says it is not yet moved. We cannot hope it moves,, we have to know and feel it is no longer there. We have to see the mountain moved, be thankful and start walking toward where the mountain would have been with no climbing gear, because its gone. See no mountain, simply see and feel the otherwise as if the mountain never existed. If poverty or lack is that mountain, then we need to stop saying I believe I am going to be abundant, for this is a wish from a point of lack. God tells us not to pray a beggar’s prayer. Praying from a position of want or lack is a beggars prayer. The story of the talents tells you all you need to know on this topic. Those that have little all will be taken and those that have abundance more will be added. God is telling us how to pray. Pray and thank God for it, but remember, God will not be mocked or manipulated. We have to truly believe the thing is given and truly be thankful for it in our prayer, for God knows our heart.
Know that certain things prepare us for better things. Good gets us ready for great, but we have to learn from good and let go of good when greatness appears. Sometimes we ask for something before we are ready to accept it, we are still holding on to good or we are reliving a past failure. If we need a new car, we may need to practice being thankful for other gifts to truly feel thankful for a larger gift. Just like many lottery winners end up destitute, we sometimes receive gifts that we are not prepared to accept and make fruitful. If our lives are not ready to be thankful for everything, it is easy to start believing in lack again. We have a success and then start saying to ourselves, this is great “how” do I acquire more of this now? How is God’s, judgement is God’s. How is the first step to failure in prayer for it screams disbelief from the proverbial mountain top. God said I am the “I Am” and I am in you. Know that God knows how, God only needs us to truly see and be at our desired end point to deliver the gift. We are here on this earth so that the infinite being, God, can experience all that has been created by God’s hand. Only God can judge it and only God can define it. Believe and it will be. To believe is to see.
