My previous boss kept on giving me few hours through out the week and they seemed to be packed in to one or two days. I remember one Saturday having a shift from 12:00-23:00, and that was the only shift for the whole week.
I prayed to God that I would be blessed with more hours and that they would be spread through out the week. When I went to work and looked at the new rota for the next week there was no change in the physical.
I still had just one day for the whole week which again was for eleven hours. For a split second I thought 'oh no, not again.
' Then instantly the Holy Spirit reminded me that I should not be moved by what I see in the physical, but only be moved by the word of God. I knew that I had asked and receive and had acted my faith, therefore I should carry on doing so.
So I thanked God again (the first time I did when I prayed) and was excited again that I saw that I had more hours spread over the days (I was looking with the eyes of my Spirit). I went back home, I think it was a Saturday.
I was not scheduled to work until the following Saturday according to the rota. I was happy and joyful because I knew that my prayers had been answered and was acting accordingly.
On Tuesday I got a phone call from work asking me to come in for a couple of hours. I said yes and knew that it was the hand of God as they had never asked me to come in before since I had started working for them, I thanked my Lord.
Then I went in and they asked me if I could come in the next day (Wednesday) from 15:00-20:00 I smiled even more:) and of course I said yes, and thanked my Lord, Praise God. You see if my countenance had changed, my attitude and my confessions I would of never received that phone call.
God saw my faith, Mark 9:23 "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. " You see you have a part to play as well.
When you pray, believe at that very moment, Mark 11:22-24 "And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. (Meaning, have the God kind of faith) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. " If you received what so ever you prayed for in the physical, I'm sure your countenance would change to that of someone who is happy and joyful, so it should be before you receive in the physical, for you know that you have that which you prayed for already by faith.
Hebrews 11:1-3 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. " prasie God! God bless you x
