Ask And It Shall Be Given – Steve Harvey Motivational Speech | This Speech Will Make You Cry

Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want. It is the belief that God will do what is right. The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.

Steve Harvey is an American television and radio presenter, actor, author, businessman, and former stand–up comedian.

[Music] I have to say this first no matter what You hear me Say no matter how I tell my story no Matter what piece of information I lay Out in front of you please tag that with Cause of God my life is Favor when you got favor on your life no Matter what you throw th into you going To always rise to the top I have been Thrown into a lot but because of favor And Grace I just keep I just keep Showing up somehow man no matter what They do and so all of this that I have Is really because of the grace of God Now I'm going tell you Something you got to have a tremendous Work ethic to be successful in here in Other words and you can relate to this You got to have a lot of dogging You really do man if you want to be Successful cuz it's it's going to be a Lot of trying times so you have to have A tremendous workout but you got to have Faith faith without works is Dead Albert Einstein said once he said Imagination is Everything it's the preview to Life's Coming Attractions everything you have Everything everything we have in this World somebody imagined it it's your Imagination is tremendous somebody was Sitting on the phone one day talking

With a cord to the wall and said man I Wish I could just go outside with this Phone everybody in here got a cell phone Somebody imagine that somebody got tired Of riding in a wagon cross country from Slavy to Freedom somebody said I wish we Had something that made these wheels Move by the we drive cars people got Tired of driving from New York to LA Somebody said I wish we could fly we got Airplanes imagination is everything it's The preview to Life's Coming Attractions your real life the one God Really got for you is in your Imagination it is not in your current Situation or your current paycheck and If you've been living like that you have Then restricted yourself to a Commonality that is really not yours Because what really God got for you is Really in your imagin ation faith is the Substance of things hoped for and the Evidence of Things Not Seen so when I Told you a minute ago you got to have a Tremendous work ethic but you got to Have a lot of faith I talked to so many People who get older like some of us are And they've lost the faith well faith is Really simple it's the faith is the Substance of things hope for all that Mean is in the beginning you just hope Something pop off you know you just kind Of hope something happen for you I was Hoping I would get on TV I wrote it on a

Piece of paper when I was 10 I want to Be on TV the problem I had when I wrote It at 10 was I suffered from a severe Stuttering problem I could not talk Outside of my house so can you imagine When I wrote on a piece of paper I want To be on TV and turn that in but when I Wrote it on the paper it wasn't Factual I was just Hoping you just got to start with the Hope faith is the substance of things That you hope for you just hope Something jump then what happened is Through grace and favor he give you a Couple of them things you hope for and Then you supposed to start believing Then because now it turns into Faith but If you take this scripture faith is the Substance of things hoped for and the Evidence of things not Seen what is the evidence of Things Not Seen I just told it to you Albert Einstein said imagination is everything It's the preview to Life's Coming Attraction but guess what your Imagination really is it's the evidence Of Things Not Seen because your imagination you know Why it's evidence of Things Not Seen cuz You're the only one can see it your Imagination is actually God showing you A preview of a Coming Attraction that he Has for you the moment you don't believe In your imagination you negate what he

Got for you your Imagination is to preview to Life's Coming Attraction it is the evidence of Things Not Seen cuz can't nobody see it With you your problem is you keep Telling your imagination to the wrong People see if you want to kill a big Dream tell it to a small-minded Person is dead how many times man have You had a tremendous idea something you Thought was the one and you wouldn't Told It to your loved ones and your so-called Friends and they shot it Down I mean you was convinced that it Was just oh man I just came to you and You told it to me and they shot it down And you thought since they was your Loved ones and they friends and they got Your best interest at heart you believed Them you was wrong they talk you let Them talk you out of what God got for You some of y'all still sitting here With the ambition of opening a business One day but you scared to go start the Business cuz you got a job and you got Bills rich people got bills everybody Got bills hell I got [Music] Bills you going to let the fact that you Got some bills stop you from opening the Business the thing that God done put in Your imagination so you going to squash That cuz you got
