Matthew 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! As you have believed, so will it be done for you.” And his servant was healed at that very hour.

God can do some awesome and amazing things in our lives if we let Him. The key words in that sentence is “if we let Him.”

God is a lover and He’s given mankind free will, therefore, He’s not going to force His will or His blessings on our lives. The magnitude of the promises we receive from God is going to be according to our faith (Matthew 9:29). If we have faith for a multitude of God’s promises found in the Word of God, we’ll receive numerous promises; and if we have faith for the bare minimum of God’s promises, we’ll have just that. One is not better than the other. It’s up to us.

Regardless if we desire a multitude or the minimum, we should stand in faith for those promises. We stand in faith by acknowledging Jesus sacrificed Himself and made every promise available to the believer. After asking God for a certain promise, we thank God that Jesus has made it available to us.

We often have a tendency to make a blessing ourselves. We get married to a person we’re unsure of, buy houses we can’t afford, take jobs we shouldn’t have accepted, but want God to bless it. However, if we stand in faith, totally relying on the wisdom of God, we’ll receive every promise from God, at the right time, with no sorrow.

Trust God, stand in faith, and receive the promises of God.
