How to Present Your Case to God

– Just as you present a fully signed cheque to withdraw money from a bank, presenting your request to God involves faith and action.

– Your heavenly account is overflowing with the riches of God, accessible upon request through prayer.

– Your prayer should remind God of His promises and present tangible reasons for your request, aligning with His Word.

– If you’re troubled by sickness, for example, healing is your entitlement as a child of God; present your case with assurance, knowing that God keeps watch over His word to perform it.

What to do After Presenting Your Case 

– After putting God in remembrance and presenting your case, it’s time to address the situation yourself.

– Jesus’ example at Lazarus’ tomb illustrates the power of speaking directly to the problem.

– There’s immense power in your words; speaking the word of faith activates creative miraculous power.

– Your spoken word, rooted in faith, is as potent as Jesus’ words.

– Even if the situation appears unchanged outwardly, addressing it spiritually initiates its collapse.

– Don’t waver after addressing the situation; maintain faith and visualize the desired outcome.

Demonstrating Your Victory

– Demonstrating victory involves taking action regardless of contradictory feelings or appearances.
