How God Gave Me a Car 

 by John Edwards



 

One morning when I woke up, still lying in bed, I saw a "vision" of the Mitsubishi Motors logo - the three red diamonds.

 

I told the Lord, "I'm content not to seek a car, so if I'm to have one, it probably won't happen unless someone just delivers one to me, without me paying one cent, not even thinking about it, not even filling-out any paper work".

 

And I left it at that.

 

A short time later I felt the Lord telling me to travel to Boonah to

visit a friend.  In my mind I started thinking about all the train

connections and public transport I would need to use to get there

from the Gold Coast - but I agreed to do it.

 

As soon as I started to go, the Lord unexpectedly said, "Wait until you have a car."

 

I wondered how long that would take! 

 

Only two hours later the phone rang.  It was a friend telling me, "In prayer this morning the Lord gave me two words: car and John.  I fell like I'm meant to give you my car.  But I need a confirmation - Could you use a car right now?"

 

So I told him what the Lord said to me earlier that very morning.

 

"That's all the confirmation I need, he said, “When can I come over?"

 

So the next day he came over.  

 

He had paid for the car; obtained the roadworthy certificate; paid for a full service; already taken it to the Department of Transport for inspection; paid the registration; and already filled-out all the Transfer of Registration paperwork.

 

All I needed to do was sign my name - which I did, without even seeing the vehicle yet: I was so assured it was from the Lord.

 

Having acquired my signature my friend said, "I'll be back about 5pm", and he left to finalize some more details.


When he returned, he handed me the keys and when I had my first chance to look at the front of the car, something inside me said, "There it is."

 

I looked-up, fully expecting to see the red Mitsubishi Motors Logo that the Spirit showed me weeks earlier in a vision. 

beforehand.

 

And there it was: the three red diamonds, on a '93 burgundy Mitsubishi Magna, with a CD player, airconditioner, and all the components I'd desired in a car. 

 

 

 

Whats more, the next day I commanded the angels to go forth and cause whatever money to come in that I may need for any expenses with the car.

 

That very day someone dropped an envelope into my house containing $500 cash. 


 

All this happened while I sat at home, never gave a minute's thought to getting this particular vehicle, never looked for it, didn't fill-out any paperwork, and didn't spend one dollar to get it. 

 

Praise God! 

 

 
 
 

How to Receive from God

 

Again and again I've experienced that this is how it is when receiving anything from God. It doesnt require any strenuous effort.  It all comes from above.

 

Whether it's salvation that a person is asking for, or healing, or the baptism with the Holy Ghost, or a job, or finances, or favour, or guidanceor anything at all for that matter the principles of receiving are exactly the same:

 

1.  Know it's the will of God.   

    Ascertain whether you really want this thing, and whether it is His will

 

2.  Ask for it, claim it 

 

    Or even to just commit it to the Lord is

    enough.  Simply commit it into His heart and into His arms

 

3.  Believe you've received

 

4.  And then leave it there!   

 

    Then, instead of thinking you need to do something more or run around trying to make it happen, don't do anything.   

 

    No need to need to even think about how it may come about, nor whether there may be something more that you need to be doing.   No.   

 

    Instead, whenever you think of the issue again, simply adopt a resting,  trusting, contented frame of mind.   

 

    Say to yourself, "It's already a done deal."   

 

    And don't act any other way.   

 

    Simply think, talk and act as though it is so in  a resting, trusting, content frame of mind.   

 

    Don't be driven into any other type of activity to try to bring it about.

 

5.  And you shall have it!

 

Think about it: that's how we got saved!  

 

That's how we got baptized with the Holy Ghost!  

 

It'll be just the same with receiving anything else from God.

 

Anytime anyone ever claimed salvation from the Lord, they got it straightaway.   

 

No-one ever came out on an altar-call for salvation and the Lord said to them, I will give it (salvation) to you one day  if it be my will – but not today.”   

 

No.  They got it straightaway. 

 

Same with being baptized with the Holy Ghost.  God doesnt delay or hold-back when a person wants to receive.  The moment a person asks for it, he receives it, he gets filled, and off he goes speaking with tongues and glorifying God.

 

Actually healing can be received the same way, because in Gods mind, our healing was already given to us on Calvary.  All thats left for us to do now is claim it and we can have it.   

 

Just like salvation.  Just like being baptized with the Holy Ghost.  Healing is received the same way.   

 

But when it comes to finances, or receiving a material object like a car, sometimes there is a time-delay before we get it. 

 

This is because the money we need or the car we need (or whatever else it is) is down here on planet earth its not up there in heaven. 

 

Spiritual things like salvation or the Holy Ghost God can give someone  immediately.  But when it comes to something thats right here on this earth, God uses people to give it to you. 

 

“Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over shall MEN give into your bosom...” said Jesus (Lk 6:38). 

 

Because God uses men to give you such things, there may be a time delay before you see it. 

 

But in the eyes of God as far as you and God are concerned the  transaction is already done. 

 

You already received it the moment you claimed it.

 

What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  Mk 11:24

 

When do you believe you receive them?  When you pray. 

 

Not when you havethem because then you wouldnt need to believe you receive them you would be able to see them right in front of your eyes.  That wouldnt require believing.

 

So actually Jesus is saying that you receive themwhen you pray even before you have them.  Youve already received them.  Hallelujah! 

 

There is nothing more on your part that needs to be done now.  Leave it to God now.
 

Hes on your case and it will come to pass.

 

“…ye shall have them.”
