Go Confidently to the Storehouse

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

Here is how you go to God’s storehouse to get what you need.

1.    Come boldly to his throne, and ask large for all the grace and mercy you need to see you through every temptation and trial. The devil has a million ways to make you feel guilty, fearful and confused; and he’ll tell you, “You feel this way because you’ve got junk in your heart!” However, I stopped looking in my heart a long time ago because it’s always blackened and stained, yet it’s as white as snow to my Father because it is covered with the blood of the Lamb. It does not matter how you feel. Simply look to God’s Word for what Jesus has done. He has wiped your slate clean.

2.    Remind God that it was his idea for you to come in. You didn’t go the Lord saying, “Father, I want everything you have.” He invited you in saying, “All I have is yours. Come and get it!”

3.    Take God at his Word. The Bible says that everything he has for us is obtained by faith. You need only say in faith, “Lord Jesus, flood me with your peace because you have said that it is mine. I claim rest for my soul.” You can’t work this up or praise it down. It comes from being rooted and grounded in a deep understanding of God’s love for you. This comes not in a feeling but rather in the Word that he himself has spoken: “In my house is bread enough to spare!”

4.    Take God’s Word and hammer all your fear, guilt and condemnation to pieces. Reject it all; it is not of God. You can say, “Let the devil come at me with his lies. My Father knows it already, and he has forgiven and cleansed me. There is no guilt or condemnation toward me. I am free!”

Dear ones, I believe that if you ask the Spirit right now to help you seize this truth, to become rooted and grounded in it, the coming days will be the greatest you have ever had. You can say, “Lord Jesus, I know I will make mistakes, but nothing can shake me because you have everything I need to be an overcomer.” Come into his storehouse, and claim all that is yours from your loving Father!
