Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Did you know that faith sees things differently? That’s right. You can see your circumstances, even yourself differently when you look through the eyes of faith. Find out how.

Speaker: Everyday Faith Part 5
Why live a normal life when you could be living the abundant life? Welcome to the Abundant Life program with Ashley and Carlie Terradez.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Hello and welcome to Abundant Life. We’re so glad that you’ve joined us today. Praise God! We’ve got an exciting program because we’re talking about faith. We’re talking about every day faith and about how faith can work in your life.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Faith is how we receive the promises of God, Praise God, and I’m telling you we’re halfway through a series. I’d encourage you to get the rest of this teaching because it’s really going to help you. We’ve been talking about lots of different things about faith. We need to give like a little recap I guess because there’s people that haven’t watched the previous shows. So a real quick recap on some of the things we’ve been teaching.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
We started out by talking about, this is Romans 1:17 “the just shall live by faith.” That we were designed to be in relationship with God and to be in a place of trust and confidence with him. The very word faith is from the Greek word “pisteuo” and it means to be fully persuaded, to trust or commit unto. That we are supposed to — our life, in fact, is supposed to live in conjunction with God. It’s dysfunctional otherwise.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
The normal Christian life is to live by faith.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Yep.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
You know it’s to walk by faith and not by sight.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Right.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
We also looked at how grace is already provided everything that we’re receiving through faith anyways. So, faith isn’t making God do something; faith isn’t moving the arm of God. Faith is just receiving what God’s already provided for us. God’s already provided for us. If we use the example of a Christmas present, right, so the present is ours, that’s grace. Grace has provided the gift, if you like. Now our faith unwraps it and receives it.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Exactly.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
And gets the benefit of it.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Exactly. So faith is basically putting more trust and confidence in what the word of God says about our situation than how we feel about it. It’s going beyond the natural circumstances into a spiritual world. And when we do that, it’s by faith that we access those promises that grace has provided. We’re actually bringing those things from the spiritual realm into the natural realm and that faith has, we know when we’re operating in faith because there’s evidence associated with it.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Yeah.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
We can see the evidence of faith in the manifestation of healing, the manifestation of provision, all these different natural ways. But more than that it changes the way we speak, the way that we act, and it keeps us in perfect peace.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Amen. It really does.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
And then we looked at how faith works by love. Galatians 5, is it 5:6?

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
5:6.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
5 verse 6.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Galatians 5:6 is “faith works by love.” When we understand how much God loves us, when we understand his unconditional love for us, that’s what ignites our faith. When we understand that God loves us, that he’s not withholding from us, that that ignites our faith. That’s our faith. And we love him. We looked at also John … was it first John

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
5

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
5 verse 19. Somewhere around there. We love him because he first loved us. And you know when we receive God’s love for us, we’re able to love and be at peace and see faith working in life, Praise God. So, faith works by love. It’s powerful and so many other things as well. So many other details that we went into. I really encourage you to either go back and watch the previous episodes or better yet get the actual product Everyday Faith because we go into more detail. There’s more lessons. We go into more detail, more examples. It’s really going to help you receive from God, Praise God. God’s heart is for you to receive today. He’s got good things for you. He’s only got good things for you. He only gives good gifts. He only gives perfect gifts and he has good things for you to receive today and the way you’re going to receive them is by faith, by trusting in him and by believing in him, Praise God.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
So today you’re going to learn how to receive from God. Amen.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Amen.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
So the aspect of faith that we’re talking about today is sight that comes through faith.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
You almost forgot what we’re going to talk about today, didn’t you?

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
I got a little tongue tied there.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
But developing spiritual sight. You know, faith sees things. Last time we talked about faith speaking, but this time we’re talking about faith seeing. We can see by faith. There are several times in the New Testament where Jesus said he saw by faith or he saw their faith. I’m thinking of the time, the example of the paralytic man, when they tore the roof off, the four crazy [inaudible 00:04:19] tore the roof off to get the man in and lowered him down on the stretcher and it says Jesus saw their faith. Seeing their faith. He could see by their very actions. People don’t just naturally go tearing the roof off to get into a room. That’s persevering —

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
When I was a youth pastor, I don’t know if you remember this, but the church I went to, we decided to reenact this during the sermon. So my friend was preaching, he was, do you remember? There was a skylight in the church so we decided to try and do the lowering the man through the skylight. Do you remember that? So we put like styrofoam, polystyrene, over the skylight and pretended that. It was really bad. The rope slipped and the guy came halfway down. He nearly fell from the roof. He wasn’t that high. Anyways, it just reminded me of that . We reenacted. We were very much into reenacting the stories of Jesus when we preached because we were visual teachers and that one …

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
I’m glad you didn’t go for the crucifixion.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
No, that one didn’t work too well.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
That one didn’t work too well. The guy fell down. He was holding onto the rope. It wasn’t good. Anyways.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Jesus could see their faith.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
He had four crazy friends though.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
Four crazy friends, definitely. See Jesus saw their faith.

Carlie: Everyday Faith Part 5
Yeah, because their actions were changed by it.

Ashley: Everyday Faith Part 5
It’s like James 2. In James Chapter 2 it says “faith without works is dead.” Well, faith without corresponding action, if you really believe something, you’re going to act on it. It’s going to cause you to act. It’s going to cause you to action. And it’s also going to make you speak differently. And that’s one of the ways that we can see faith. When we see people: they’re acting a certain way, they speak in a certain way. You know the woman with the issue of blood. She was saying that within herself – we’ve already look at this within a previous lesson – but she was speaking within herself: “if I touch the hem of his garment, I’m going to be healed,” and then she took a bold step of action. She went into a crowd where she shouldn’t have been to touch the hem of his garment. So it called her to action. So you could see the faith in her. So faith can be seen.

Ashley:
And I’m telling you, when people are in faith. I remember we were in a conference one time, I believe it was Atlanta, Georgia, and a guy came forward and he had these medical shoes on. They had special soles. One was a bigger sole than the other and they were like these black medical shoes. And then he put down a set of trainers or sneakers, depending on what continent you’re watching from. You know this goes out to three different continents so we have to sometimes change our language.

Carlie:
We’re bilingual, honey.

Ashley:
Sneakers.

Carlie:
Tennis shoes.

Ashley:
Runners. Tennis shoes. Trainers. Whatever you want to call them. He actually brought a pair of those with him and set them down and then he came for prayer. And I was like “that’s interesting” and he told me he had this flatfoot condition. He couldn’t run and his walking was very hobbled and he had to have these special medical shoes. He took those medical shoes off and put those runners, those sneakers, on and we prayed for him. I’m telling you this guy, remember he ran around the auditorium and I ran with him around the auditorium. He was healed. 100% healed right there. Now by him bringing those trainers, I could see faith in this guy.

Carlie:
Right, he’s expecting.

Ashley:
It’s important to say this. You don’t do something to produce the faith. We’ve already looked at this before. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. So you get into the word of God, you hear the truth about who God is and how much he loves you and about his promises he has for you. Like health and healing, like provision and prosperity, like the forgiveness of sins, those types of things. Peace, peace of mind. You find out about those things and the more you learn about those things and the more you listen to faith based teachings, the more you listen to these types of teachings, the more faith is going to start to come because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. And then it drives you to action.

Ashley:
Sometimes we make the mistake, I’ve been there as well and made this mistake, I think if I do the action then the faith will come and that’s the wrong way around. We don’t do the action and then the faith comes. We get the faith and then the action comes. We get motivated to do it and then we go out and do it. We can see faith. Have you got some examples on how we can see faith?

Carlie:
Yes, absolutely. We can see faith in others, but we can also see by faith. There’s two different aspects in there.

Ashley:
So there’s seeing faith in others and then there’s seeing by faith. So like Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:7 “we walk by faith not by sight.” So we can see by faith.

Carlie:
We’ve talked about one of the aspects of faith is that faith is spiritual. It’s not all linked to our emotions. It’s not emotional. Hebrews 11:1 says that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” See faith doesn’t operate in a natural sense going by what we can only see. Now you can see the effects of faith, as we just mentioned. But faith, spiritual sight is not developed by looking only at things that are in the natural. It’s the evidence of things not seen. It’s seeing with a supernatural, spiritual vision. It’s seeing things in the spiritual realm before we see things in the physical realm.

Carlie:
Many years ago I was in a wheelchair. I’d had a lot of seizures from epilepsy, had brain damage. And they weren’t sure if I was ever going to walk again. I was 18 years old, in a wheelchair probably about a year old believer, a year old in faith. And I didn’t have this, one of the things that we’ve said is that faith is not complicated. And Praise God because at that point I needed faith to be very uncomplicated. I was facing, literally, a mountain of struggle. My whole life was about to be turned upside down and as I started to study the word of God, I saw that God had a different plan for my life. I just started to see myself differently and this is where faith starts to kick in. My spiritual sight started to see things that my natural eyes couldn’t yet see. In my spiritual sight I could see myself climbing a mountain. I could see myself walking and running and in my natural sight all I saw was a wheelchair.

Ashley:
So naturally you just saw the circumstances. But you’re saying in the spirit realm you could see, you had vision, you could see spiritual sight.

Carlie:
Absolutely. You know, I started to meditate. I started to think about. I started to dream about being out of that wheelchair, dream about the next few months ahead of that. Climbing a mountain, about going on this vacation with my outdoor activities, my youth group, and climbing mountains and canoeing and all those things that right at that moment seemed completely impossible. But the more I started thinking about it the more real it became to me. What was happening in that moment was spiritual sight, the faith sight was being developed on the inside of me. We see things on the inside before we see things on the outside. This is hugely important.

Carlie:
It’s a long story but in a nutshell, it was that spiritual sight that helped me to take my first few steps. If you’re in a struggle today, you don’t have to believe God to get up and run a marathon, you just have to believe God to take the first step. Amen.

Carlie:
So faith means being prepared to take the first step. And sure enough all those things that I saw on the inside of me, they came to pass.

Ashley:
So you saw yourself healed. This is really important. Sometimes we see ourselves sick, we see ourselves poor, we see ourselves struggling.

Carlie:
Because that’s all we can see in the natural.

Ashley:
And we don’t see ourselves, that that vision for ourselves, we don’t see ourself. I’m thinking “as a man thinks himself in his heart, so is he.”

Carlie:
Yeah, Proverbs.

Ashley:
And as we see ourselves in that condition. If we see ourselves like that, it can be very hard. Just in the natural they take people that are just in the natural very successful and say they’re a millionaire in the natural and they lose everything. It’s just a matter of time before they get it all back again and become very wealthy financially again. And the reason is because they see themselves as that person, they see themselves with someone who’s rich, they see themselves successful. And then the other extreme is they did a study of lottery winners and they found out, I think it’s something like, over 80% of lottery winners end up going broke because they saw themselves poor. Because people usually, I don’t want to get people mad or anything, but I’ve never played the lottery because if you look at it it’s like a tax on the poor person. The odds are so stacked against you, why would you spend money on it?

Ashley:
So wealthy people don’t usually play the lottery…

Carlie:
Because they don’t believe their life is up to chance.

Ashley:
They don’t believe their life is up to chance. Anyways, the people who play the lottery are already inclined to think that they’re poor. They already have that way of thinking so that’s why they have the lottery kiosks and that in poorer neighborhoods. Anyways, they play the lottery. They win the lottery. But they still see themselves poor even though they might have millions of dollars and before long they end up poor again.

Ashley:
So it shows you how you see yourself beyond the natural circumstances. Even in the natural makes a big difference. If you see yourself sick, if you see yourself… They’ve done other research with cancer victims and they’ve made them have visions of their future and made them think about their hopes and dreams. They maybe have goals of doing things. Goals of getting married or goals of doing a marathon.

Carlie:
There’s one thing that sickness naturally does is that it will make you focus only on what’s happening now.

Ashley:
And what you can’t do. You can’t do this. You can’t do that. Rather than have you focus on what you can do.

Carlie:
Because faith plans for the future.

Ashley:
Faith plans for the future. That’s great. Faith plans for the future.

Ashley:
Here’s an example of this. I’m looking at the feeding the 5, 000 and we don’t have time to go into the whole story, but basically Jesus was teaching, there was 5, 000 men present it says besides women and children, so it could have been 10, 000, 15, 000 people. And they got very hungry. The disciples tried to fix it. They couldn’t fix it. The hour was late. There was no Walmart or [inaudible 00:13:26] or any big store anywhere.

Carlie:
No 24 hour stores.

Ashley:
No 24 hour stores around. No 7-11. So they needed some food and what happened was they found a boy with some loaves and fish and they said we have no more than five loaves and two fish and Jesus said, I’m reading now out of Luke’s gospel, this is Luke 9, this is Luke’s gospel and Jesus said, bring them to me. Bring the loves and fishes to me and watch this. This is Luck 9:16 “then Jesus took the five loaves and two fish and looking up to heaven” and if you study this verse out, “looking up to heaven,” this phrase “looking up to heaven” means looking into the spirit realm, looking beyond the natural resources, looking into the kingdom while doing things. He blessed and broke them. He gave thanks for those few loaves and fish. Imagine this. Imagine you’ve got, this is the equivalent to if you’ve got a $200, 000 debt and someone gives you $10. How many of us would give thanks? Thank you God for this $10. I have a seed.

Carlie:
Most of us would just look at it and think “what is so few among so many?” Right?

Ashley:
Exactly right. “So few among so many.” We curse our seed and say “That’s not enough. That’s not going to work.” And sometimes, God’s given you opportunities, he’s given you small business ideas, he’s given you jobs, overtime, whatever it is. He’s given you something small as a seed for you to start thanking him for and he can multiply that seed, Praise God. And just like he with the feeding the 5, 000. There’s 5, 000 men who ate and were filled by these few loaves and few fish because Jesus looked into the spirit realm and he saw that God was going to provide. He gave thanks for the seed and then he broke it and distributed it amongst them. Gave it, if you like, and it says here that “they were all ate and were filled.”

Ashley:
So Jesus looked beyond the natural circumstances, the natural circumstances were that the hour is late, they were in a deserted place, and all they had was a few loaves and a few fishes and they had 5, 000 men. He looked beyond the natural circumstances …

Carlie:
He saw the same things as everyone else in the natural light. It wasn’t like his eyes were closed. He didn’t [inaudible 00:15:18] and say, “oh, no, really, there’s a whole lot more fish.” This is important. Faith is not denying the truth, there’s a fact in the natural realm. It’s not saying, “I don’t have cancer,” when clearly the doctor’s report says that you have cancer. Or “I have enough” when clearly you’re starving. It’s not denying a natural circumstance, but faith goes beyond the natural circumstance. it goes beyond the lack of resources. It goes beyond the symptom in your physical body. It goes beyond the doctor’s report and it says this might be a truth, but I have another truth. I have the word of God. I have another report.

Ashley:
The truth.

Carlie:
I have the truth. And the truth of what God says about it in the spiritual realm, it trumps how I feel about it in the natural.

Ashley:
Amen. This is another great example. This is Abraham believing for Sarah. I’m just going to jump right in here. This is Romans 4 and in Romans 4 it said that, Romans 4:19 “God gave Abraham a word, a promise, and said that you’re going to have great descendants. And listen to this Romans 4:19 “not being weak in faith,” so Abraham used his faith “he did not consider his own body already dead” since he was 100 years old. So I don’t want to go into a biology lesson here–

Carlie:
In the physical world, the body was exhausted.

Ashley:
100 years old. 100 years old. He was, he said his body was dead. I’m not going to go into that you can google it or ask your parents or whatever, if you … since he was about 100 years old. And the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He chose not to consider the deadness of his body or the deadness of Sarah’s womb and he did not waver at the promises of God through unbelief but was strengthened in faith “giving glory to God,” verse 21, being fully convinced that what he had promised, what God had promised him, he was able to perform. Therefore it was accounted to him for righteousness.

Ashley:
Abraham, similar to Jesus here, didn’t look at the natural circumstances. He looked beyond the natural circumstances and Abraham concentrated on the word that God had given him. Your descendants are going to be like stars of the sky. Your descendants are going to be like the grains of the sand. Grains of the sand, is that right?

Carlie:
Yeah, that’s right.

Ashley:
Grains of the sand on the beach. I guess it wasn’t the beach. It was the desert.

Carlie:
The thing I love about that–

Ashley:
God gave him specific instructions, specific promises and Abraham was able to focus on them rather than focus on the deadness of his body and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.

Carlie:
We’ve talked about him in previous lessons as well. When, we really believe something it changes how we act. Now I’m not getting into a biology lesson either, but if Abraham really didn’t believe what God has spoken to him, that he was going to be the father of many nations, he would have looked at his body, he would have looked at his wife’s body and thought–

Ashley:
No chance.

Carlie:
Nothing going on here. Well there’s only been one immaculate conception and it wasn’t Isaac. They had to put some action to their faith.

Ashley:
Explain.

Carlie:
Yeah. Well, anyway.

Ashley:
Tell me what you mean.

Carlie:
Well there had to be some antics, you know. There had to be some romance. There had to be something going on there, right?

Ashley:
I thought the stork came in…

Carlie:
Anyway, there was action to their faith and the evidence was Isaac. I think you know the rest of the story. Okay?

Carlie:
Oh my goodness, you’re making me blush. Every time I got pregnant. Actually we have three kids, Ashley said “How did that happen?” I’m like “You were there.”

Ashley:
I don’t know how it happened.

Carlie:
Anyway. One day he’ll figure it out.

Ashley:
I had a small part to play.

Carlie:
Maybe you can write to Ashley and explain these things to him.

Ashley:
I had a small part to play in it.

Carlie:
Very small part, honey. Anyway.

Ashley:
Moving on.

Carlie:
Moving on.

Carlie:
Faith sees beyond the natural circumstances. Let’s look at this in 2 Kings. 2 Kings, we’ll start on verse 15. “When a servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out a force surrounded the city both with horses and chariots. And his servants said to him, Alas my master, what do we do?” They were having a bit of a trouble here. And he said “Do not be afraid for there are more with us then there are with them.” Now he’s probably thinking, hang on a second, I’ve just got up. It’s in the morning. I’ve opened the doors. There’s a whacking great army out there. I haven’t even had my coffee yet.

Ashley:
Whacking great army. There’s a big army. Thousands of soldiers. Big army.

Carlie:
And Elijah’s like “Hey, no problem, there’s more with us than there is with them.” And Gehazi is probably doing this double take thinking “Is he not woken up yet? Because I’m seeing a huge army and there’s like one, two. There’s only two of us and there’s lots of them. Something’s not computing.” Verse 17 it says “Then Elijah prayed Lord open his eyes and let him see. So the Lord opened the eyes of the young man and he saw that the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding Elijah.” Now it wasn’t that Gehazi the servant couldn’t see. His eyes were open. His physical eyes were open. What Elijah was talking about here was the eyes of Gehazi’s understanding. His spiritual eyes so that he can see into the spirit realm like I can see into the spirit realm. So he can see by faith like I’m seeing by faith. “And when they had come down, Elijah praised the Lord, strike these people with blindness. And he struck them with blindness according to the word of Elijah.”

Carlie:
Basically, the end of the story is the prophet and the servant were supernaturally delivered from this whole situation because it just took the Lord to open the servants eyes so that he could start seeing, for a moment he just took the veil away, so he could start seeing with his spiritual sight.

Ashley:
Into the spiritual realm.

Carlie:
Into the spiritual realm the power that was on their side. And I think sometimes that we forget this. We look only at our natural circumstances. We look at the lack. We look at the so few among so many. We look at the bank account. We look at the doctor’s report. We just look and we only see naturally and we forget the almighty power of God that’s in us and through us. Man, God is on your side today. I just want to encourage you. You are a person of faith. You have, if you’ve received Jesus into your heart at some point you have all of the faith that you need, that God’s called you to do, to receive every single one of his promises that he has laid out for you. You are not weak in the faith department.

Carlie:
And here’s my prayer for you today. That the Lord would open the eyes of your understanding that you might be able to see into the spirit realm what is the immense riches of his grace and his power towards you, in you, and through you. Amen.

Carlie:
He has called you to victory over whatever situation you’re going through. There really is no weapon formed against you that can prosper. God is on your side and he has set you up for success. It doesn’t matter what the doctor says. It doesn’t matter what the bank manager says. Doesn’t matter what it looks like. Doesn’t matter what the government says. Let me just say this. It doesn’t matter what government is on the throne, Jesus is still on the throne.

Ashley:
What government’s in power.

Carlie:
Doesn’t matter what government’s in power. It doesn’t matter what king is in his kingdom. Jesus is still on the throne.

Ashley:
Again, they may be watching in countries that —

Carlie:
This is important.

Ashley:
Some countries have godly governments. Some countries have ungodly governments. At the end of the day, Jesus trumps it all. Jesus is on the throne. He is the lord of lords and the king of kings. Your government can not stop you from receiving the promise of God. Your parents can’t stop you from receiving the promise of God. Your employer can’t stop you from receiving the promise of God. Your bank manager can’t. Your doctor can’t. Your spouse can’t. The only person that can stop you receiving the promise of God is you. If you choose to resist God, if you choose to not be in faith, if you choose to only look at the natural circumstances, if you choose to only go with the natural, then you can stop the promise of God from coming about. That’s why death and life and the power in our time. THat’s why God says, “I sit before you and I call heaven and earth as witnesses. I sit before you. Life and death. Choose life.”

Ashley:
It’s our choice. We have free will and it’s our choice to choose to receive the promises of God. And these can manifest in all different ways. I’m telling you, if you’re in a situation, look beyond the natural circumstances. Get your focus beyond the natural circumstance and look into the spirit realm. Look into the kingdom way of doing things. The way you do that is by finding the promises of God. If you’re in a situation, maybe like we’ve talked about, maybe you’re in a situation of lack, whatever that may look like for you. You haven’t got enough. You look up, you look up Philippians 4:19 “My God will supply all your need according to his riches and glory.” Not according to your government, not according to your workplace, not according to your savings account, but according to his riches in glory. You start meditation on those promises, start realizing, look up places that God’s got promises specifically in that area. When you do that, you take ahold of that promise, you start meditating on that promise, you start thanking God for that promise.

Ashley:
Jesus said when we pray to start giving thanks like we’ve received it before we’ve received it. Was Jesus telling us to fake it until we make it? No. He’s saying you’ve already received it in the spirit, start thanking God for it. That will put you in faith and that will bring that from the spirit realm and over into the natural realm. That’s why Jesus gave thanks for the loaves and fish.

Carlie:
This is really important because sometimes if we’ve been dealing with a situation for such a long time it’s actually our spiritual sight that’s damaged. If you’ve been chronically sick, I was chronically sick for such a long time. I thought sick. I dreamed sick.

Ashley:
You saw yourself sick. You saw yourself sick.

Carlie:
I saw myself sick. I saw myself as Carlie the epileptic, as Carlie that can’t work, as Carlie that can’t drive, as Carlie that has to take medication multiple times a day that’s never going to be free from this. And the whole time I was thinking sickness doesn’t just get into your body, it gets in your mind. Poverty doesn’t just get in your life and your finances, it gets in your mind. It starts to change how you see yourself.

Carlie:
It wasn’t until I allowed God to show me a picture of me, how he created me to be, on the inside of me, that to really form my identity as a child of God. To start to see myself as well, that I could ever start to experience healing in my physical body. I just want to encourage somebody. If you’re chronically sick or chronically poor, whatever the situation is. If you’ve been dealing with a situation for such a long time that you can’t imagine yourself any other way there is still hope. Amen.

Carlie:
So we’re going to pray for you in just a moment, but God can open the eyes of your understanding and start to paint on the inside of you a new picture of how he sees himself because he wants to lead you in health, in wealth, and in victory of every area of your life. Amen.

Ashley:
We’re going to pray for you before we go and just like Carlie said, you can see into the spirit realm. God’s going to give you eyes to see into his kingdom, Praise God. So I’m going to pray for you wherever you are right now receive this.

Ashley:
Father God, thank you for everyone watching and listening today. I thank you that you have good promises for them. You’ve got good things for them. I thank Lord that you’re their provider.
