To receive you HAVE to believe. You have to believe in it ALL. The biblical figures we read on and look to in the bible were regular people just like us all with issues needing healing and deliverance. Believe. Receive. And then there's the gift of the Holy Spirit that will reside in you. Acts 1:4-8 "4 While he was with them, he declared, "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait there for what my Father promised, which you heard about from me.
5 For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
6 So when they had gathered together, they began to ask him, "Lord, is this the time when you are restoring the kingdom to Israel?"
7 He told them, "You are not permitted to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the farthest parts of the earth."
