I’ve taught you before that praying for possessions like a car may not necessarily be a prayer of faith, it’s simply an expression of your desire to God, and your desires may not come to pass except it is sponsored by your convictions from God’s word.
Mark 11:24 says,” Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”. In other words, after you pray to God about your desire, you have to believe or have faith in His ability to meet your desires. Many believers pray about their desire but neglect the believing part – which is the most crucial part of the process.
You can’t have faith or believe you will receive except you understand a word from scripture or you understand the character of God concerning owing possessions like a car. I know you may have quoted Phillipians 4:19, “God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”, but if you still don’t feel your faith after quoting that scripture, then you may need to sit down and study your Bible until you understand the character of God in that area.
For instance, back in the old and new testament, they clearly didn’t use cars, but what did they use for mobility? Why did they use them? Was enhanced mobility important to the work of God. You’d be amazed by how the answers to these questions will inspire faith in your heart.
Jesus had been going about his earthly ministry on foot, but when it was time to enter Jerusalem as a king, He had to enter with a donkey. He probably would not be given that celebrity attention if he didn’t enter riding on that donkey. The people spread their garments on the ground just so that he could ride on them. That’s royalty indeed!
We understand from scriptures that we are royalties and that we are redeemed as kings and priests to reign on the earth. If Jesus used a donkey to showcase his royalty, then it’s certainly okay to ride in the best of cars if the world would acknowledge our royalty as ordained by God. This revelation alone should spark up your faith to get your own car soon. It’s enough reason for God to favour you with a car. You have to showcase your royalty in the kingdom.
This is why it’s important to be kingdom minded. Clearly, a person who is not kingdom minded cannot be inspired by this kind of scripture. Matthew 6:33 further guarantees us that material possessions will be added to us as long as we give priority to the kingdom of God. God has an endless supply of all the possessions we’d need in this world, and He adds them to those who give priority to His kingdom. Think about it, the donkey that Jesus used belonged to God and God gave it to Jesus when there was a need for it. Isn’t that beautiful? Personally, there are many things I have today that I never prayed for, I just received grace for them through kingdom alignment.
Now let’s go back to understanding the character of God regarding possessions like a car, it was Zechariah that saw a vision of heaven where chariots of horses were moving back and forth. In other words, they also use mobility in heaven. The bible tells us that as God is in heaven, so are we in this world. If God has chariots of horses in heaven, then you can have fleets of cars in this world. Isn’t this powerful?
Asides those two characters we’ve mentioned, we’d also discover from scriptures that horses were used to move or travel faster in scriptures. In other words, the possession of a car would add speed to your movement. Believe me, that’s a good thing, and God will not withhold any good thing from you. The plans He has towards you are plans of good.
So now that you understand how to build faith through understanding the character of God, keep exploring the bible and you’d be amazed by the characters of God you’d unveil.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
