Smelling Bread

You may be beholding a relationship that seems as if it’s hardened like a stone. Your natural senses register that, for the present, it looks like a stone, feels like a stone, and weighs like a stone.

Test a stone and you will find that it is typically hard enough to build on ~ such as, build a case on. We are tempted to rehearse all that has transpired and rationalize how much of a “stone” it’s become. The relationship can even become a stumbling block of offense. So what do we do with these stones that present themselves?

Jesus said, in Matthew 7:9, 11, “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? … how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

The more we declare the current relationship as a stone, the harder it becomes. The more we pray into the situation and call the relationship bread, the softer it will become. Jesus’ words declare it, as He said in verse 8 of the same chapter: “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

We are admonished to use the authority that’s been given to us to declare that what is presently a stone will become bread! We use our words to declare good instead of evil. After all, it is baking because of prayer. So, call to remembrance what fresh bread smells like in the oven. Waft it across your memory and build your faith.

Call Heaven’s door open, in Jesus’ name, and expect bread to come forth! He promised bread instead of a stone.
