Meditating on Mark 11:24 today – Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
the word “have” is not in Greek – it is the word eimi meaning to be, to exist, I AM.
I love when Abba breathes on a Scripture, causing it to come to life in us!!
Asking and believing are present tense verbs (present and continual). We’ve been asking and believing, and asking and believing… “using OUR faith.”
But the word receive is aorist (a FINISHED tense; DONE).
When we (amid of our continual, present asking and believing) come to the realization, to the awareness, that we have already received… that receiving is a FINISHED work ( 2 Peter 1:3)… it can’t be done again, and it can’t be undone (by anything we do or don’t do)……. when that awareness happens, we will realize that what we have been “asking and believing” for already exists (eimi) IN us and AS us. Healing, finances, peace, wisdom, etc.
