Write Your Own Ticket


Every promise is given so that when we do not receive we:

  1. Examine by the natural to see if we can locate an obvious open door

  2. Search our Father for the reason

  3. Be patient because the promises are possessed by faith & patience.



Part of our searching needs to be to see if we’ve given any of what we want.


God has a number of scriptures telling us that to get we need to give.


Matthew 5:7 NAS Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.


Matthew 6:14-15 NAS 14 "For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.  15 "But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.


Luke 6:37-38 NAS 37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned.  38 "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure — pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."


2 reasons why

  1. God wants us to be good stewards of what we get

  2. Our giving of what we want to get is a faith seed that opens up knowledge, faith, etc. into hidden things that we can’t see at the time.

Proverbs 11:24-25 ESV 24  One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. 25  Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
