1. Give our first and our best
2. Prayer equals relationship with God

B – Believe

Acts 11:21 AMP
20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Greeks as well, proclaiming [to them] the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 And the hand (the power and presence) of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord [for salvation, accepting and drawing near to Jesus as Messiah and Savior].

Matthew 21:21-22 New King James Version
21 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

When the enemy steals our belief he steals a great gift

T – Trust

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Trust is “Choosing”

O – Obey

Hebrews 11:8
8-10 By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith, he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger camping in tents. Isaac and Jacob did the same, living under the same promise. Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations—the City designed and built by God.

Hebrews 11:8
8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.

When I sit I see

It is only when I sit that I can see clearly what He wants me to see!!

When I sit in the hands of God He becomes my…..
– Sustainer
– Promoter
– Comforter
– Healer
– Encourager
– Provider

So when we sit we begin to see….
– Protection from my enemies
– Vision is clearer
– Not distracted
– You see success
– Sleep in peace
– Feel Joy
– No weapon formed against me shall prosper (even in our own stupidity)

Only When I Sit, Can I See

1 Chron. 4:10
10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.
