“Prayer is believing with thankfulness and believing is HOW we receive from God. Prayer is your opportunity to build a heart-to-Heart relationship with your heavenly Father. Prayer with thankfulness is what builds and strengthens our relationship with God wherein we come to understand the freedom we have to believe and know that God is present, willing, and able to answer our deepest and most desired prayers.” ~LMJ~
“Everything that we receive from God is spiritual; however, spiritual blessings will always come into our physical lives so that we may further enjoy them. For instance – God gave us light, love, joy, and peace – these are spiritual qualities of life that become manifested in our lives as we walk in the knowledge that we truly have received these gifts from God.” ~LMJ~
“When I recall first hearing that I could cast all of my cares upon God, I first thought, ‘Why would I do such a thing as giving God something that I do not even want?’ That is a good question, and the answer is wonderful!
Casting our cares upon God is the will of God, for in doing so He can then go to work delivering us from all our cares. To cast is to deliberately pass it on with mental thought, like as if we were casting a fishing line into a particular spot on a lake where the fish are swimming. Do you know what else? When we cast deliberately, we expect to bring in a catch. It is the same with God; He would love nothing more than to return unto us the true desires of our hearts, and one key about ‘how to receive from God’ is by first casting our cares, then the receiving will come. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you– I Peter 5:7.” ~LMJ~
