-Ooooo…that’s a nice car. I believe I’ve receive that car for my life, amen.
-That job makes a lot of money. I receive that job, in Jesus name.
-That’s a one of a kind outfit. I thank you Lord in advance for that outfit.

When something appeals to us, some of us immediately want to throw faith at it. We want to believe God for it, thank God for it, and declare it in our lives. That’s the correct process, but we may have missed one important thing. That’s knowing if it’s God’s will for us to have that particular thing. God’s ultimate will for our lives is in His Word. However, specific decisions we need to make such as accepting a job or not, will only be revealed through His Spirit (1 Cor. 2:10).

We may want the thing, but have we asked God if He wants this in our lives right now? He may have something better for us. He may have something that aligns more with our current budget. He may expose the faultiness of the product. He may know it will be more problematic for our lives.

Whatever we desire, simply present it to God. He’ll make it clear to us if the thing we desire aligns with His will or if it’s just an impulse feeling that won’t benefit our lives.

Proverbs 16:3 (AMPC) Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
