I believe so I do – what? 2

What about the link between believing and receiving? Should you believe good enough to receive something? The ‘name it and claim it’ movement says that in order to get what you want, you really have to believe you will get it and you will have to proclaim that. According to me, this is not believing, this is magic or superstition and has nothing to do with faith in Jesus Christ.

I believe God is my Father. I don’t have to meet all kinds of conditions or perform certain rituals. I don’t have to be absolutely sure or have the faith that I will get it before I got it, to get it. If I want to have something, I only have to ask and then it will be given to me, or not.

I have heard people mention James about doubt. When you doubt you should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. This is not about you doubting if you will receive what you have asked for, it is about you doubting if God is able to do it. If you don’t believe God can do what you asked for, why do you think you will get it?

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
