If you have been trying and trying to manifest that which you want in your life and it continues to elude you, this post may very well be the reason why you haven’t been able to receive it…
A key part to allowing what we want to manifest in our lives is to make sure that there are no obstructions. To make sure there are no negative feelings or emotions hidden or buried deep inside of us. To make sure “the path is clear” so that what we want can come to us.
Most Christians are familiar with these scriptures in Mark Chapter 11 – “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Many people have read this, believed it, and tried to apply it…
And, they did not receive what they wanted.
Because there is one more piece to the equation that is revealed in the very next verse:
“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
This makes it perfectly clear that if we are to receive what we want, we have to forgive, forget, release, and let go of all negative emotions or feelings that we have against someone who we feel has done us wrong, has said hurtful things, or in some way, offended us.
1 John 2:11 tells us – “But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”
Feelings of hatred on your part will cause you to “wander around in the darkness” unable to see your way to receiving that which you want.
Hatred will blind your eyes to the opportunities and “open doors” that will lead to you receiving that which you want.
Fear is a “repellant”. It repels that which you want away from you. Fear creates all kinds of negative emotions that erect “barriers” between you and what you want.
On the other hand, love is an attractor. Love for God and love for people starts attracting that which you want towards you.
When you love other people, you want to help them get that which they want. You want to lift people up and build them up. You want to give yourself to help them – and that giving empties you out so that you can start receiving that which you want.
Ecclesastes 11:10 – “Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh.”
“Feeling sorry for yourself” is yet another repellant to that which you want.
I’m not talking about Godly sorrow and repentance for wrong-doing.
I’m talking about the “nobody loves me”, “nobody cares for me”, “I’m all alone in this world” kind of negative thinking that puts you into a negative state of mind and that prevents you from receiving what you want.
Likewise, sin, evil works, and wrong-doing will stand between you and what you want. Why? Because your God-given conscience knows you are doing wrong which sets up a series of negative vibrations and emotions within yourself – no matter how hidden or deeply buried they may be – that shuts down your ability to receive that which you want.
When we try to bring glory to ourselves instead of to God, we create a contradictory set of vibrations within ourselves that will take us out of the flow that we need to be in to receive what we want.
When we are competing or in conflict or in any kind of “non-unity” with other people, we once again set up negative forces that hinder us from receiving that which we want.
When we envy and covet, we have strong emotional feelings about having what is in someone else’s possession – and these are once again, negative-based feelings that prevent us from receiving that which we want.
Not forgiving those who have done us wrong, hatred towards anyone, fear of any kind, feeling sorry for ourselves, sin or wrong-doing of any kind, contention, envy, judgment or any number of other negative feelings and emotions will distract and prevent us from receiving that which we want.
But, when we get rid of all these negative emotions and feelings, and we move into a positive state of mind, we open the doors, we clear the pathways to receiving that which we want.
How do we move into a positive state of mind?
We focus on love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance just like we are instructed in Galatians 5.
And when we consistently operate with these feelings and emotions, we’ll soon find that which we want manifested in our lives.
