Why do we pray for what we already have?
If Jesus died on the cross, then we have been given access to everything we need. Because of His resurrection, we don’t need to ask God for freedom from sin, we already have it. We don’t need to ask for wealth even, because we already have it.
You already have everything you need.
While praying this morning, God wanted to show me a practical way of seeing this revelation. He told me to pick up a pine cone. So, I picked up the pine cone and started asking God to send me a pine cone. I was lifting up the pine cone and asking Him to give me what I already had.
I started laughing, because it seemed silly, but that’s what we look like when we ask for what we already have…
Every time we ask God to free us from the bondage of slavery or make our businesses prosperous, we are asking God for the “pine cone” that we already have.
Why do we do this? We ask God for these things because we are looking at the natural and not looking into the Hope realm.
The Hope realm is the unseen of God’s heart. It’s the place of intimacy where we see His heart for us. From that place, we can see the freedom He has already given us and from His heart we can also see all of the promises of God in Christ.
Walking in freedom, prosperity, healing, and all of the promises of God come from one thing: Faith. What you believe is what you have. If you believe you are in lack (looking at your natural circumstances), then you will manifest lack. But, if you believe you are in abundance (even if the situation is the opposite), you will attract abundance.
