ASSUME: to accept something as true without question or proof.

DESIRE: a strong feeling of wanting to have something.

WE must learn to ASSUME the feeling that WE would have if we had already received what things so ever we DESIRE. If you try to figure out how, why, and when you will block and hinder the magic of your wish. Never dwell on difficulties, barriers, or delays… your HEART will accept and agree with your feelings of difficulties and obstacles as if that was your request/desire. Then your heart will proceed to produce those difficulties, barriers, or delays in the outer world of your life.

Your heart must be protected and guarded above all else, for it determines the course and direction of your life.

So, by ASSUMING the feelings that you would have as if you had already received the things you’re praying for, the HEART is moved to build the exact likeness of your assumption.

For your desires to truly be accepted, you must be able to ASSUME the feeling of their reality. It is only through feeling it to be real will the idea be accepted by the heart… and only through this heart acceptance will it ever be expressed in the outer world of our lives.

It is easier to associate your feelings to circumstances in the world than to admit that the conditions and circumstances of the world are mere reflections of your feelings.

It is universally true that the outside world mirrors the inside world of your HEART.

No man can receive a thing unless it is given to him from the invisible dimension. The invisible dimension is only accessible from within you.

Nothing comes from without; all things come from within – from the HEART.


Your heart must be protected and guarded above all else, for it determines the course and direction of your life.


Let me explain something… OUR thoughts and words are transmitted like a wave of energy. They send messages out on a specific frequency and are transmitted back to us manifested as an experience or encounter in our lives.

Our thoughts create something like a magnetic field of energy that surrounds us, while our words provide a kind of magnetic pulling mechanism that attracts either positive people, things, and experiences or negative people, things, and experiences. This is why it is so crucial we become very careful with the information we repetitively think about in our minds.


Mark 6:1-6 (NKJV)

Jesus left that place and went to his hometown. His disciples followed him. When the day of rest—a holy day came, he began to teach in the synagogue. He amazed many who heard him. They asked, “Where did this man get these ideas? Who gave him this kind of wisdom and the ability to do such great miracles? Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” So they took offense at him. But Jesus told them, “The only place a prophet isn’t honored is in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his own house.” He couldn’t work any miracles there except to lay his hands on a few sick people and cure them. Their unbelief amazed him.


How do you view the people around you? How do you view your friends, family, colleagues, associates, strangers, etc? Do you ASSUME some as positive influences and others as negative influences? What feelings do you ASSUME?


The feelings you assume about people is what you bring out of them.


For example: They saw Jesus as “just a carpenter” and were unable to receive the miraculous power of the miracle worker himself. However, those who saw him as a miracle worker received the miraculous power of God!


Their ASSUMPTIONS not only limited them by unbelief, but they also limited the activity of God in their lives. Jesus could not do any miracles except heal a few sick folks.


What ASSUMPTIONS are you making that may be limiting YOU???


What ASSUMPTIONS are you making that may be limiting the activity of GOD in your life?


Mark 5:35-43


While Jesus was still speaking to her, some people came from the synagogue leader’s home. They told the synagogue leader, “Your daughter has died. Why bother the teacher anymore?

When Jesus overheard what they said, he told the synagogue leader, “Don’t be afraid! Just believe.” Jesus allowed no one to go with him except Peter and the two brothers James and John. When they came to the home of the synagogue leader, Jesus saw a noisy crowd there. People were crying and sobbing loudly. When he came into the house, he asked them, “Why are you making so much noise and crying? The child isn’t dead. She’s just sleeping.” (Notice what Jesus assumed.) They laughed at him. So he made all of them go outside. Then he took the child’s father, mother, and his three disciples and went to the child. Jesus took the child’s hand and said to her, “Talitha, koum!” which means, “Little girl, I’m telling you to get up!” The girl got up at once and started to walk. (She was twelve years old.) They were astonished. Jesus ordered them not to let anyone know about this. He also told them to give the little girl something to eat.


Why did he make them all go outside? Their negative ASSUMPTION would have limited the activity of God in the girl’s life.


Some people you just have to put OUTSIDE! Outside your life, outside your thoughts, outside your focus.


Your ASSUMPTIONS are affecting your life and also the lives of others. You may as well be blocking the power of God in your life as well as in the life of others based off your doubt-filled, unbelieving, NEGATIVE ASSUMPTIONS.


Your RECEPTION is as good as your PERCEPTION. How you BELIEVE a thing is how you will RECEIVE a thing (whether Negative or Positive). How you see yourself is how you will receive yourself. How you see people is what you bring out of them.


You already are the person you want to be, and your refusal to believe this is the only reason you do not see it. If you search outside of yourself for something that you do not feel you are, then you are wasting your time. 


We will never find what we want to be, we only come into deeper discoveries of who we already are!
