What are You Believing For?
“You’re my son, and today is your birthday. What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize?”
Psalm 2:7–8, MSG
Did you notice in today’s Scripture how big God thinks? Sometimes we’re praying for a dollar-an-hour raise; God’s talking about giving you nations. We’re praying to pay our bills; God’s planning on blessing you so you can also pay other people’s bills. We’re looking at the five loaves and two fish; God’s thinking about the twelve basketfuls of leftovers.
What does that mean, “Today is your birthday”? On your birthday, more than at any other time, you feel entitled to ask for something special. When you were a child, you knew that was your special day. You had the boldness to ask for what you really wanted. God is saying, “When you pray, act as though it’s your birthday and I am your heavenly Father. Come to Me with boldness. Ask Me for what you really want. Don’t hold back. Tell Me what you’re believing for. Ask for the secret things I placed in your heart.” Dare to ask big.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for declaring that this day is my birthday and for inviting me to come to You with boldness and to ask for what I want. Help me to think big like You think. I believe that You will move heaven and earth to bring about Your destiny in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
