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 if he wants to.......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
According to the dictionary believe means to be confident about something.To be confident about something means to be convinced, to be totally persuaded about something, without any doubt whatsoever.
That "you know,that you know"
In Mathew 7:14 Jesus said to go through the narrow gate "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."
Therefore Friend when you are aiming to achive something your focus must be constantly on "your narrow gate" the final outcome, the fulfilment of the promise in order to achive your goal .It is then, and only then, that the succesful outcome will spring forth, and that's difficult without knowing what the word of God says about it.
Our answer to every wish and every desire is in the word of God.The revelation that we receive from the word- negative or positive- will be based upon our belief system.
Friends "We need to believe the word of God".We need to believe that it is God's will for us to live a healthy and prosperous life in every area, because Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law according to Galatians 3:13 , and we are blessed!
We dont belong in the curse- unless we rebel,and allow our heart to be filled with pride and greed,and be ungreatful and unloving, uncaring,and live the way the world lives, in worry, doubt and unbelief.Or let fear to rule and reign in our life,and get ourselves in strife, refuse to forgive and ask for forgiveness then we deserve the curse, because it was our choice.And I have a personal experience of what it likes and it was not a pleasant experience either.
But I am ever so greatful that Jesus came to my rescue when I called Him in that dark hour of my life and saved me! His love changed my heart, He cleansed me by His blood, wiped away all my sins,and blessed my life forever!
Yes friend the curse is not for the saved, but for the children of disobedience -which I was one in the past.We are blessed, and blessed people believe the word, and those who believe know they have to hold on to the word.
The word of God is our sword, and we need our sword
"we have to fight the good fight of faith"
Yes there is a fight.
We fight doubts,
We fight fears,
We fight wrong ways of thinking,
We fight strongholds,
We fight low self esteem,
We fight what we see in order to allow God to bring forth the supernatural that we cant see, and have no proof other then our belief in a word. The word of God.
His word has such a power in it to change any situation, to bring restoration, healing and any promise we are looking forward to it, because it always brings life if we dont give up!
"Your succeess in life is based upon the measure of your belief!"
Mark 11 :22-24 NKJV So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Therefore I say to you,whatever things you ask when you pray believe that you receive them and you will have them.
The Weymouth translation of the above verse "That is why I tell you, as to whatever you pray and make request for,If you believe that you received it it shall be yours."
Our revelation from the word is based upon our capasity to believe. And if there was a time to stand on the word and fight the good fight of faith, it's now, with all the economic meltdowns, pandemic flu's and all kinds of natural disasters around the world, For if we dont give up we win all the time!
"If you can believe ,all things are possible to him who believes"Mark 9:23
