Getting Whatever You Want
Ezra 7:6 NKJV "This Ezra came up from Babylon; and he was a skilled scribe in the Law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given. The king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him."
The Bible says that the king granted Ezra all his request: that's amazing! It happened again and again to children of God in the Bible; Exodus 12:36 says, "And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians." Wow!
Listen to me, it's very possible to have everything you need from anyone at all - your bosses, your lecturers, your parents, from the government, etc. You know why? Because God is in complete and absolute control! Proverbs 21:1 says that the king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, and like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes. Hallelujah! And it doesn't matter whether they like you or not; it also has absolutely nothing to do with your looks! Proverbs 16:7 says, "When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him."
I pray for you today in the name of Jesus, that God will give you favour wherever you go. I pray for you, that doors will open for you whenever you approach them. I pray for you, that from today, no one will turn you down, instead, men will on their own invent ways to help you. Return to those people who said no to you before; go back to those places where your requests were denied previously; God has gone ahead of you this time; it shall be done!
