Just do it again

Mark 8:22-25 (CEV) As Jesus and his disciples were going into Bethsaida, some people brought a blind man to him and begged him to touch the man. Jesus took him by the hand and led him out of the village, where he spit into the man's eyes. He placed his hands on the blind man and asked him if he could see anything. The man looked up and said, "I see people, but they look like trees walking around." Once again Jesus placed his hands on the man's eyes, and this time the man stared. His eyes were healed, and he saw everything clearly.
Luke 5:1-5 (NLT) One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, great crowds pressed in on him to listen to the word of God. He noticed two empty boats at the water's edge, for the fisherman had left them and were washing their nets. Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish." "Master," Simon replied, "we worked hard all last night and didn't catch a thing. But if you say so, I'll let the nets down again."
The word of God for some of us is to just do it again. Maybe you have tried before and failed or maybe you have prayed your most faithful and sincere prayer about a certain situation and nothing happened. The Lord is saying call out to Him again.
Doing it again isn't about doubt in fact it is about your faith. Seek the Lord by prayer and petition.
Ezra 8:23 (NIV) So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer.
Philippians 4:6 (NIV) Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
There are some of you that are on the verge of giving up on God and you are closer than you think to your manifestations.
You need to know and remember that God is faithful. 1 Samuel 15:29 (CEV) Besides, the eternal God of Israel isn't a human being. He doesn't tell lies or change his mind." Go all the way with the Lord and trust him again, praise Him again, believe Him again.
In Jesus Name Be Blessed, Manie
