Position yourself to receive His best


So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

The Word of God promises so many blessings to us. Some of those blessings or promises are as follows: faith, joy, hope, victory, peace, abundance, eternal life, wisdom, protection, righteousness, love, the Holy Spirit, power, prosperity, health, and so on. Believing and receiving all of God's promises however, is after salvation, the most essential step we must take in learning how to be in touch with God through prayer, and to lay hold of His promises. Faith is the key, "for without faith it is impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrew 11:6).

Isn't it exciting to know that the lasting success and prosperity that you desire is on the path God has prepared for you? You don't have to wonder whether you can experience health, wealth and the fulfillment of your dreams; God's Word guarantees it. All you have to do is get on the right path so that you can begin to live the abundant life Jesus came to give you (John 10:10).

The first step to getting on the right path is to accept Jesus as your Lord and personal Savior and allow your heart to be filled with the love of God. Being born again includes you in God's family and gives you the right to go to Him for help and direction. As a loving Father, He has made it His duty to guide you in your life. You must also make a commitment to renew your mind with the Word of God (Romans 12:2). By applying the scriptures to your thinking, you will change your old mindset and become more open to hearing from the Lord. As you fill your spirit and mind with the Word, your thought process will become aligned with the mind of God. His thoughts will become your thoughts. And you will find yourself walking a path that lines up with His will for your life because you've made the Word your final authority. The next step to discovering the will of God for your life is to yield every aspect of your life, spirit, soul and body, to Him (Romans 12:1). Doing this signals that you are ready and willing to do what He tells you to do at any given moment.

Proverbs 3:5, 6 says "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." Once you present yourself to God, trust Him to lead you to the right path. Always acknowledge Him and allow Him to lead you even when you think you have it all figured out. There may be times when you have a plan mapped out, but when you acknowledge God and allow Him to lead you, He may tell you to go a different way. By seeking Him first, you position yourself to receive His best.

Praying in the Spirit is another essential key to getting on and staying on the right path for your life. When you pray in tongues, you are communing with the Spirit of the living God. During those times, He will release His will for your life and give you the wisdom you need to take the next step (Romans 8:26). The most vital part of getting on this path to the good life is trust. No matter how you feel or what you think you may know, trust God and do not attempt to rationalize His will. Seek Him every day and walk by faith and believe that His will is done in your life.
