Make a list of what you’d like to see happen, point God’s Word at it and declare it done”! It’s God’s way to speak and call things into being; to speak the result, not the problem and stand firm until what you desire comes to pass. God is faithful to His promises, and if we hold steady and don’t give up on the destiny that He’s placed in our hearts, He will bring it to pass.
Some things I say are like alpha sprouts; they come up fast when planted, and you see them fulfilled quickly, and then other things might take a little longer. But regardless of when we plant the seed of a prayer request, there will always be something happening under the surface, in the “dirt” where you cannot see it.
God and all of heaven go to work and into setup mode once we pray, and if we keep watering our requests like water to a seed, give thanks and maintain a good attitude, like pouring sunshine on a seed, then that thing will come up; it will come to pass. The key is not to give up; to throw up our hands and say it’s not working, and say it’s too hard and start digging up our seed before it has a chance to sprout and breakthrough.
Some things take time to grow, like a mighty oak tree, but once they develop, that tree (the answer and breakthrough) will last and shape generations. Some of what we are praying and believing for today will affect our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and all those our lives impact, so it matters hugely that we hold steady now and do not grow weary and give up.
God loves us so much, and His thoughts and plans for us are always, always good. He doesn’t want to hold any good thing from us but to bless and prosper our lives so much that we’ll be shouting it from the rooftops. When we have a dream, desire or request, if it is something or someone who will make our lives more whole, blessed, joyful and help us fulfil our destiny in Him, He will move heaven and earth to make it happen.
I might add here that my husband of nearly 31 years was on a list of a hurting 17-year-old young woman. I wrote down and listed the desires of my heart, and God heard and well and truly surpassed my list and sent a handsome, tanned, young man complete with the craziest dimples and a smile that turned heads into my life.. he loved and still loves Jesus first and cherishes me like no-one else.
Whatever dream you have in your heart, facing or struggling with and believe in, I encourage you to write it down. Then go to Gods word and ask Him to give you a word from the bible to stand on. Google scripture if you need to find a scripture verse for the subject you need a promise about. The right verse will jump out at you, and when it does, write it down and start declaring it done.
God says He is alert and active, watching over His Word to perform it, and that the angels listen up and go into action whenever people who believe start speaking and calling in Gods promises. (Jeremiah 1:12; Ps 103:20) When attached to God’s Word, that prayer, request, dream, and desire has the power to come to pass because it has dynamic power in it like a supercharged seed ready to grow and bear fruit.
“Write down the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it” (Habakkuk 2:2)
“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly”. (Psalm 84:11)
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)
Prayer: Lord, thank you that you want to answer my prayers. Please help me have the courage to write down the things in my heart and start believing it is possible that I will see them happen in and through my life. All things become possible when you are involved, so thank you for the breakthrough and answers today. In Jesus name Amen
