Would you ask for something you already have? If your dad buys you a pair of sneakers, you don’t have to ask for them again, you only have to put them on and walk in them. In other words, all you have to do is appropriate what you ALREADY have! Romans 8:11 says that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is inside every believer. The Word also says in Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. And God has given us so many precious promises regarding salvation, deliverance, healing and prosperity. Why, then do we insist upon asking for, instead of appropriating, what we already have?
