(Genesis 8:22, AMP)
Jesus taught that God’s Word is a seed. It will produce in your life after its kind. “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.” (Luke 8:11 NKJ)
Whatever your need — plant the seed from God’s Word covering that need. Then you will reap what you need, if you don’t give up (Galatians 6:9)
If you have big needs — plant more of God’s seed.
In Joshua 1:7-9, God gave instructions for success. They will still work for you today. It is not enough to read God’s Word. You must also speak it. By hearing it and speaking it, you plant it in your heart.
First Thessalonians 5:17
(NKJ) pray without ceasing,
(TEV) pray at all times,

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen
Chapter Two - Effect of Thought on Circumstances
Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself. No such conditions can exist as descending into vice and its attendant sufferings apart from vicious inclinations, or ascending into virtue and its pure happiness without the continued cultivation of virtuous aspirations. And man, therefore, as the Lord and master of thought, is the maker of himself, the shaper and author of environment. Even at birth the soul comes to its own, and through every step of its earthly pilgrimage it attracts those combinations of conditions which reveal itself, which are the reflections of its own purity and impurity, its strength and weakness.
Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are. Their whims, fancies, and ambitions are thwarted at every step, but their inmost thoughts and desires are fed with their own food, be it foul or clean. The "divinity that shapes our ends" is in ourselves; it is our very self. Man is manacled only by himself. Thought and action are the jailers of Fate - they imprison, being base. They are also the angels of Freedom - they liberate, being noble. Not what he wishes and prays for does a man get, but what he justly earns. His wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when they harmonize with his thoughts and actions.
