The impossible is an uncharted territory which the faint-hearted dread to explore. It is not that you’re not getting what you want; it’s that you’re not doing what it takes to get what you want. For God to be pleased with you, you must detest what you like and like what you detest for His sake. Often, we say we are waiting on God, but God is actually waiting on us to adjust our ways so we could obtain the promise. You won’t get anything you prayed for until you have become the kind of person who should receive it. People who experience uncommon grace, take uncommon steps towards their destiny. Judith wouldn’t have defeated Holofernes if she hadn’t gone the extra mile of fasting, prayers, and abstinence. What are you willing to give up in order to embrace the impossible? If God could part the red sea, raise Lazarus from the dead and do millions of unbelievable miracles, then there’s absolutely nothing impossible for Him.
What do you seek?
The scripture says seek and you shall find. Do not be hoodwinked into believing that what you seek cannot be found. Dare to venture into the uncharted territory and you’d be amazed at how your miracle will change the world. I have listed seven keys to bare the impossible. Your uncommon victory lies in your strict adherence to these keys…
1) Unwavering belief in His promise: If you want the impossible to happen in your life, you must believe in His promise. God has never made a promise too good to be true. He’s not man that He should lie. If He’s said He’ll set you free then He’ll set you free. Cling to His promises and the unbelievable would happen.
2)You must have a positive attitude of faith.”But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). With faith, Judith was able to go into the camp of the enemy. It was faith that made David face Goliath and defeat him. Everything is possible for one who believes. Your miracle is just at the other side of faith. “Faith comes from the heart (Rom. 10:10), and God looks on the heart — not the actions (1 Sam. 16:7). Of course, God sees our actions and will deal with us about them, but only because they are inseparably linked to our hearts (Prov. 23:7). It’s our hearts that really concern God, and faith in Him (trust, reliance) is what He is searching the heart for.” Andrew Wommack. The language of God is faith. So, if you are speaking a different language, you might want to change it. Faith is knowing God will deliver. Even when you do not see a tracking number, you just know it’s on the way and should arrive any day now.
3) You must put on your cloak of patience if you want the impossible to happen in your life. Judith was patient enough to wait for the right time to kill and hack off the head of holofernes, the enemy. The reason you are frustrated today is because you lack patience. We live in a world of instant gratification where everyone has the quick fix mentality. We want our needs met very quickly even when we haven’t put in the work. Remember,after Abraham had patiently waited, he obtained the promise. Wait patiently and in good attitude. God will deliver His promises at the right time.
4) Purity: If you want the Holy Spirit to continue romancing you with His blessings, you must be holy. The prayer of the righteous availeth much. Judith was able to defeat holofernes because she was holy. “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God” (Romans 8:6-8).
5) Praise: You’ve asked for that favor long enough; it’s time to switch mood…Praise Him. Praise unlocks your blessings. If you want a raise you must learn to praise. When we pray, God sends His angels but when we praise,we connect directly with him. Remember it was after Paul and Silas praised God that the Holy Spirit came down. When we make that decision to fix our eyes on Him, and daily give Him praise, no matter what’s staring us straight in the face, we suddenly realize that God has already begun to release the grip those struggles can have over us. Praise gets our focus off ourselves and on God. “Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!” Psa. 150:2
6)Prayer: If you only pray when you’re in trouble, then you’re in trouble. Prayer should never be an option. Be an aggressive prayer warrior. Pray until something happens. If there’s someone to pray, then there’s a God to answer. It’s not that God doesn’t want to change your situation, it’s that you haven’t asked. Bartimeus asked Him to restore His sight and immediately he received his sight. Have a one to one discussion with God. He’s ever ready and more than happy to help you get to a level people never expected. A closed mouth is a closed destiny. So, pray your way out. Pray until something happens.
7) Proclamation: Do not tell your God how big your problems are, instead, tell your problems how big your God is. Your positive proclamation will set you free sooner than you expected. Every setback is a set up for a comeback. you may be down today, but God can lift you in a split second. Be optimistic. One season, David was a shepherd boy; the next season he was a king. One season, Esther was nobody; the next season she was a queen. Never you underestimate the workings of God. Making negative proclamations has you stuck on stuck. Your faith works against you when you say you believe in the promises of God, yet make negative proclamations. Believe you’ll get there some day. Speak what you seek until you see what you speak.
