My sister has two kids. The first one is 4 years and the younger one is under 1 year. I visited them last June and we had great time together. I didn’t stay for long but I learnt a lot from the few hours I spent with them. My first nephew was misbehaving so I told him that I was going to spank him if he doesn’t stop. Below is the conversation between my nephew and I:
Me: am gonna spank you if you don’t sit down
My nephew: My dad will beat you if you touch me. He is strong
Me: How did you know he is strong?
My nephew: He told me that if anyone touches me, he will beat that person
Me: Then I won’t buy aeroplane and car for you if you don’t sit down
My nephew: My dad will buy me big aeroplane because he has plenty money
Me: He lied to you
My nephew: No, you are lying. Dad said he will buy cars, toys, and phone for me.
My nephew: Mummy, uncle is lying. Isn’t dad rich?
My sister: Daddy is rich. He has enough money to buy everything you need.
My tricks to get this guy to sit didn’t work because he believes his dad owns the world, and his dad is the strongest man on earth. As I watched this boy and his level of faith in my brother-in-law, I asked myself that how many Christians can have this kind of faith in God? I felt guilty because as I sat with my sister’s family, I had my own doubts about many things. I prayed silently within me and asked God to help me grow in faith to the point where I will believe His promises for my life without considering physical constraints.
God, our Father, is the Creator of the universe. The Psalmist said in Psalm 24 (NLT) that “the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. For he laid the earth’s foundation on the seas and built it on the ocean depths.”
He made provision for your needs before you came to your mother’s womb. God isn’t preparing, creating, or packaging things you are praying for. He has already made them. The rest is for you to believe to receive. In Mark 11:24 (AMP), Jesus said “For this reason I am telling you, whatever things you ask for in prayer [in accordance with God’s will], believe [with confident trust] that you have received them, and they will be given to you.”
Sometimes you look at the physical constraints and wonder how God is going to intervene in your situation. The truth is God knows no boundaries so you have to believe that whatever it is that you have prayed or are praying, or are going to pray for, you will receive in Jesus’ Name. Be encouraged to pray for the Holy Spirit to help you to renew your mind in order to believe God, your Father, like a baby. And don’t try to figure out how God is going to work because His ways are higher than yours. Only Believe
