If we read Romans 4:17-25, we can read about how Abraham (a man who had no son but desired greatly to have a son) was able to manifest a son in his life.
More importantly, we can see God’s formula for manifesting that which we want in our own lives.
Here’s the formula (with the portions of scripture from which the formula is derived):
- “calleth those things which be not as though they were.”
Decide what you want. What is it that you really want. Think it through. Write it down and get very clear on exactly what you want. Then, ask God for it. Once you’ve asked God for it, start thinking, talking, acting, and behaving as if it were already true – that what you want is already manifested in your life.
- “And being not weak in faith, he considered not…”
Do not be weak in faith. Give no consideration for external facts and circumstances that are contrary to what you want. Ignore how much of an impossibility what you want may seem to be. Think no more about what you don’t have or don’t want. Think only about what you do want.
- “He staggered not through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;”
Do not stagger, waver, get discouraged, or grow impatient – all of which are forms of unbelief – while God is bringing that which you want to pass. While God is working to manifest that which you want, give Him thanks for it. Give Him the glory that is due His name.
- “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”
Be fully persuaded that God is not only able to manifest what you want in your life, but that He WILL manifest it in your life.
Based on what you now know, you can more clearly see that “removing a mountain” as described in Mark 11:23-24 is just another example of God’s formula for manifesting that which you want in your life.
Mark 11:23 – “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.”
It’s exactly the same formula.
Decide what you want and then start thinking, talking, acting, and behaving as if it were true.
The reality is that “spiritually” it is true the moment you decide to have what you want and ask God for it. From there, if you maintain your faith in God, He will make it “physically” true – He will manifest it in your life.
We can see yet another rendition of God’s manifestation formula that especially emphasizes the importance of not wavering or doubting in James 1:5…
“If any of you lack wisdom (replace wisdom with what it is that you want), let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.”
Go back up to steps #2 and #4 above and tie them to this verse – you must be persuaded that God will manifest that which you want in your life – not matter what external facts and circumstances indicate and no matter how impossible it may seem.
