5 Steps for Receiving From God
(Based on Hebrews 4:12-16)
Present the Promises (Present Your Case). For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (verse 12).
Go to the Word of God and find the scriptures that fit your situation. (Romans 10:17)
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you the promises He desires you to apply. (Romans 8:1-16)

Humble yourself before the Lord. (James 4:10)
Lay the promises before Him. (I John 5:15)
Hear His wisdom and the instruction of the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13)

Present it to the high priest of your confession, Jesus.
Prepare to Receive. Let us hold fast our profession (verse 14).
Let faith and patience work together in your life. (James 1:3-4)
Praise God for the Manifestation of Victory! Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace…and find grace to help in time of need (verse 16).
