Turning Everything Over to Him
I remember when we were looking for a house in New Orleans after the Lord had called us to live there. We would come down and stay in a hotel every month for two weeks at a time. We did that for several months and could not find the right house. We prayed in the Holy Spirit for hours each day, and then we would return to Phoenix to work for the remainder of each month. Finally, the answer arrived. The answer came only after continually offering thanksgiving to God, sowing financially into our church, and praying forth the mysteries in the Spirit. On separate occasions, we had two friends tell us that the Lord had the house and that He was hiding it for us, not hiding it from us. Then suddenly, our answer came to us supernaturally. We could not do it on our own, and He came through for us.
I used to have a hard time with faith, which means believing God, until I realized that Jesus Himself confirms everything that was set in Heaven and is written on the earth. His words are not just something you hear; they are something that you eat. They become part of you and grow. Truth can become a reality. This reality is based on a relationship, not on just your position with Him. I may have a position and work for someone, but it is not the same as having a relationship with someone on a personal level.
