Whatchu say? Manifest! Manifest what?

Lisa Thomas
When we as Christians or Spiritual people talk about God and read the bible we say we believe his word but on some deep level unbeknownst to us, we don’t really believe.

I know we have all heard the verse “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”

Some may have even heard this one “Faith without works is dead!!!”

In the new world of today, some of us have heard this: “have an attitude of gratitude; be grateful for what you have and then you will attract more of what you want.”

You’ve probably even heard me say, “know your vision and focus with great intention.”

All good stuff but what’s missing is a strategic plan, belief along with dedicated, concentrated action.

So here’s the deal, use what God gave you. Matthew 7:7 says “Ask and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be open unto you.”

Well what are you asking for? Are you clear about “what to ask for”? Are you actually knocking on doors or waiting for god to mysteriously bestow your wants on you for your good samaritan attitude? Some believe if you’re just a good person, you practice gratitude or you pray, you will eventually get what you want.

Well James 2:20 says,  “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

I don’t care how good you are at being grateful, praying or the good deeds you do – you cannot escape the work; the dedicated concentrated work.

We tend the fail in this part of our daily responsibilities.

Even God worked 6 days and he rested on the 7th day. So we don’t get to sit back and not take consistent action everyday thinking he is going to reward us because we prayed or we worked a little bit.
So here’s what I’m saying:

Believe – you must believe in your vision and destiny. You must believe without doubt that god will deliver you to your destiny.

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, “BELIEVING” it shall be done.

And Matthew:21;21 Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree but also if ye shall say unto the mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

So belief is critical, it makes the impossible possible.

De-mystify manifesting – the problem with the word “manifesting” is it can be unclear. There’s no “how” to do it. So you find yourself manifesting with no real knowing of “how to do it”.

But if you look at one of the definitions in Dictionary.com on manifesting, it will offer the following:

“to make clear or evident to the eye or the understanding; show plainly”

Which leads me to the next step:

Make your path plain and create a strategic plan – no vision or purpose manifested without a plan of action.

And here’s the clincher, you must execute the plan. There’s no escaping the plan. You have to take the actions laid out.

Think about it – here’s a great example and I’m going to be brutal to take the point home. 

So you read the scripture as it is written which is  “ask and it is given unto you. Seek and ye shall find; knock the door will be open unto you.”

 And no sooner than you ask, you get the answer to take seven steps but for some reason you do not do all seven steps you are given. You stop at 2, then you might go into a state of gratitude to manifest your destiny, or pray to ask god to help you or you stop and do something totally off the beating path when what there is to do is step 3,4,5,6, and 7.

That’s what really makes your destiny manifest itself.

Nothing happens by osmosis or in a vacuum. Prayer works, yes; God answers prayers. Meditation works, yes. In the solitude of moments you are given peace and answers to your prayers however nothing happens without action; deliberate consistent concentrated planned action. NOTHING!

No beautiful masterpiece of art, landscape or building ever just appeared. It became a reality by someone laying a foundation and building on it through work or action.

So go to “work” on making things happen.

Your destiny is in YOUR hands. Everything you want is awaiting you, now go get it!
