A little boy one's said" My dad is so strong ,he can move the car, my dad can run so fast, he can win any race, my dad can climb any mountain, my dad can cross the deepest river,yes I know my dad can!.......but my dad thinks he cant!
The little boy believed in his dad, his dad was his hero, unfortunately the dad didn't believe in himself.
Our confidence level is measured according to our belief.Our character is shaped by our believes.There is an enormous power in believing.
Nothing can stop a person who believes from achiving.Mountains can be moved, dead relationships can be resurrected,the sick can be healed the lost can be found, and the poor can accumulate great wealth.
People believed in Jesus's healing power, and they received Healing Mathew 4:24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon- possessed,epiliptics, and paralitics; and He healed them .
But the opposite of this happened in another scripture Mark 6:4-6 But Jesus said to them,"A prophet is not without honor except in His own country, among his own relatives, and in His own house Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them, and He marvelled because of their unbelief.
WOW thats powerful, thats very powerful friends. Unbelief can even stop the power of God from bringing forth a miracle.
What we see in those scriptures is two different kinds of beliefs. The first group believed Jesus could, the second kind believed he couldn't.
Friends believing in the word of God many times is like swimming upstream.Being positive that something is so, when all evidence proves against it can be hard, because we are living in a negative world and believing comes from the heart and the heart will always produce whatever is full of everytime!
We are created beings, made in the image of God who is our father.Whatever we believe in our heart will come out of our mouth and Jesus said "Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.And our words forced by the power of our beliefs will either bring forth good things or evil things.
Friend What is in your heart in abundance?
Is it faith or fear?
Worry or peace?
Saddness or joy ?
Love or hate?
Forgiveness or wrath?
Success or failure?
Lack or abundance?
Poverty or prosperity?
There is power in believing Friend, and the nature of this power whether negative or positive, will be clearly evident in your life right now, by the production of its fruits, that you either enjoy or dread right now!
