David prayed in Psalm 86:17, "God, send me a sign of Your favor." When God puts a promise in our heart, He will always give us some kind of sign to confirm His Word that the promise is going to come to pass, something to boost our faith and encourage us. It may be confirmation through a dream, a person, nature or even something that seems like a coincidence. It may look insignificant to others, but to you it will resonate in your spirit reminding you that God is in control and directing your steps.
How different would our lives be if we lived with David's boldness? Instead of waiting for a sign, we would simply ask for a sign. God wants to do something amazing in your life. He wants to strengthen your faith and uplift your spirit, but He is waiting for you to take that first step. Part of taking action is asking. Those promises that you're standing on, the dreams in your heart, the situation you're believing to turn around, dare to say, "God, give me a sign of Your favor. Give me a sign that I'm going in the right direction." Release your faith by asking and then expect God's goodness. He promises He will confirm His Word by showing you some kind of sign that will prove what He is saying to you.
Now more than ever, itís time to release your faith, expect God to move, and speak His blessings over your life. Why? Right now, there are blessings that have your name on them. There is promotion, healing, vindication, restored relationships and so much more. God has already destined them to be yours.

Joel will show you how to make it your number one priority to guard your thoughts, speak words of victory and faith, and believe God for even greater things. When you believe that doors will open for you, you will be accelerated into a future of Godís favor, abundance and joy. You will walk in your due season.
