How to Get What You Need

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines
the course of your life.” ~ Proverbs 4:23

Are you trying to get something from God by using your mind? If so, it won’t work. Why? Because faith is not a mental function. Faith is a heart function.Faith - Text on Red Puzzles with White Background and Selective Focus.

Your heart is the seat of your identity. Who you are is determined by what is in your heart. This is the reason it is so important to guard your heart. Your heart is the control center of your life. It is in your heart that the kind of life you lead begins and is generated.  

Faith and your heart are intimately connected. Faith is the currency which your heart uses to create your life. The more you exercise your faith, the better life you will have. If there is lack in some part of your life, it is that you are not applying your faith to that part of your life.

There are two kinds of faith: natural faith and supernatural faith. Everyone has natural faith. If you are born again, you have supernatural faith. Natural faith will get you natural things. Supernatural faith will get you supernatural things. Natural faith makes sense. Supernatural faith does not make sense because it has nothing to do with the senses.

To get what you need, you must use supernatural faith not your senses. To get supernatural faith, you must connect to Jesus.
