Faith Works Both Ways: Ask and it will be given


Do you know you can have faith for poverty? 

This morning God and I were having a conversation, and He was talking to me about faith. He said, “Do you know faith works both ways?” I was really interested in that! So I said, “What do you mean, God?”

He said, “You can have more faith in poverty than My blessing in your life.”


We go through life “expecting” certain things, and what is faith?

Hebrews 11:1

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  • What is the substance that is holding you? Is your mind full of expectation for disaster, sickness, poverty, bad relationships etc. Do we actually say out of our mouths, “I never have money.” Or, “Every one of my friends stab me in the back.”

We are speaking FAITH. 

There is always a distortion to the truth, right?

Our problem is that we look at what’s in front of our face right now. That sickness. That bad relationship. That depression. We don’t realize that we literally call those things that be not as though they were.

Proverbs 18:21

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

 If our tongue has the power of LIFE or DEATH, what is your tongue saying? What fruit is showing up in your life? God has had me on a journey with faith in the area of wealth. I was watching a video by Caroline Leaf at church the other day, and I realized that it wasn’t my “asking or believing” that was hindering me, it was my “receiving.”

Matt 7:7

“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.

It’s time to let go of the past. Let go of disappointments where you asked before and didn’t get it. Were you fully expecting it to actually manifest in your life? If we are double minded it says in James 1:8 that we shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord!

Obviously, how we process and think is important to God. He is a God of reward. Don’t believe me?

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
We have to
  1. Believe that He exist.
  2. Believe He rewards those who earnestly seek Him

I encourage you to stretch your faith. Observe what kind of faith you’re in. Do you have more faith in the negative things that are happening? Or are you fully expecting that God rewards those who seek Him?
