Jeremiah 1:12 "I am watching over my word to perform it."
You may be certain that if you accept God's Word and act on it, He is watching over that Word to make it good in your life. All you need to do is to act on the Word. It is very important that you learn this simple little lesson.
Acting on the Word is not struggling. It is not crying. It is not praying. It is simply acting on what God has spoken, and that brings results.
Praying is important, but praying does not bring the answer if we are not acting like the word is so. You can pray and pray but the answer is not coming until the acting comes. There is no such thing as praying through.
The Bible says to pray and then to "say." Say unto this mountain, be thou removed..."
So the right things to do is to pray and then to say, say and say.
His Word is sufficient for you. We may not be acting like His Word is so. In fact, we're acting as if it were not so. We are acting as though you think if you pray long enough and loud enough, you might eventually talk the Lord into the notion of keeping His word.
Once you pray, then you praise and keeping confessing the Word. You can pray, believing you have received.
Confession: I believe God. And I act like I believe Him!
