"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God" 1 Corinthians 2:12. We have received which is past tense meaning it has already been given. It doesn't say we are to work hard to obtain. The scripture also says that we may know the things freely given to us. We need to know or recognize the power that is already in us.
I know I have used Ephesians 3:20 in many passages before but there is this one fact that many don't notice about the scripture "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us" According to the power that works in us That is the power that is already in you not the power that you have to beg God for. We shouldn't beg God for anything anyway, because His love for us is so strong that all it takes is our faith and our patience and we will receive what we ask.
I end with this scripture of Jesus words in Mark 11: 24 "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted unto you.
