God: simplified the process…
Mark 11:24 (KJV) “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”.
In this life we strive to achieve many things, but the biggest obstacle to receiving is ourselves even as we doubt the ability of God to give to us who are His children. And even those of us who are not His children receive bountifully from Him because He cause His rain to fall on the just and unjust.
At times when a desire burst forth in our hearts and we have the courage to act upon it prayerfully, then the next step is believing that the God of Salvation, the one who created us and has sustained us perpetually will be in agreement as long as it is in His will for the plan of our lives.
The process simplified is praying: believing: receiving.
If you trust yourself to want the best for your life, then I believe that God will be in agreement in granting it according to His riches in glory.
