How to prepare for manifestation

It is extremely important to stay focused if you really want to see spiritual manifestations in your life. Sometimes the good Lord tests our patients by not answering our request immediately.

As human beings the temptation to give up will always be lingering on our minds especially when our faith is weak.

We must also not lose sight of the fact that the devil is always looking to put self doubt in our mind to prevent us from staying resolute.

As noted in Luke 2:25-32, Simeon never gave up on the promise given him by the Holy Ghost.

Also note that righteous, virtuous lives are key ingredients when it comes to manifestation in the Bible. Purity of heart will draw you closer to God.

And that will in turn speed up the manifestation of your desires that you so much need.
