The hard part of believing

Yes, that means there also exist an easy part, and most of us take the easy way out, most people turn towards the path of despair(doubting, fear) rather than the path of hope( faith, believing). unfortunately this easy way out robs us of our victory and inheritance. Its just like handing over the mantle of authority of our lives over to the devil all over again.

Mark 11: 23 – 24.

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Christ meant and still means every single word of this promise, meant for His born again children.

Just as He means every single word of His promises in the bible which is His will, if only we would take time out daily to feed on it, sit to study, dig and discover the treasures in His will, The Bible.

He is not a liar, the devil is the liar and the father of all lies.

Have you ever considered that it is so much easier to believe a lie than it is to believe the truth?

In fact, you make little or no effort mentally to believe the lie than you do when you try to believe the truth, what the word says concerning your situation mentally.

But that’s where we are missing it.

If you ‘try’ to believe the truth ‘with your mind'(reasoning), you will wear yourself out, cause if your believing is based on a sensory organ, then your believing will soon fizzle out by means of the same sensory organ.

Remember what the word of God says in 2 Corinthians 5: 7; “We walk by faith and not by sight” Then that means we should walk by believing the word of God and not by sight (our senses)

Take God at His word. And stand your ground! For He stands with you.

You see, we are always afraid to trust, due to fear of being mocked or fear of loosing or looking stupid, typically, the fear of people. this stops us from believing God.

2 Timothy 1: 7;  “But God has not given us the spirit to fear, but of love power and a sound mind.”

Proverbs 29: 25; “The fear of man brings a snare but whosoever puts his trust in God shall be safe.”

So how do you overcome fear and how do you believe God’s word?

Fear works hand in hand with doubt, and it all works on your mind.

Like 2 timothy 1 seven states it, it is actually a spirit, so you can speak to it either in agreement or disagreement.

Most times, people speak in agreement with fear and doubt when they are actually supposed to speak in disagreement.

All you need do is resist it. Anytime you recognize fear and doubt bringing scenarios and facts that stand against what the word of God has promised you, concerning any mater you have found His word for, simply say;  “I resist you fear in the name of Jesus. I believe God’s word concerning (fix in whatever it is you  are trusting Him for) and He shall see to it that I receive it according to His word, in Jesus name”

James 4: 7;  “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Its not your job to figure out how it will become, your job is to feed your faith constantly with the word of God that supports your claims, until the manifestation comes. And it shall come.

You also do not have any business explaining your faith with faith extinguishers, you’ll only be undoing yourself.

Rather, I would advice you relate more with faith edifying people.

How else do you believe actively and receive?

Live a life of thanksgiving and when you pray, after you have asked Him for what you want, if you truly believe that you have received it, then rather than ask Him for it again the next time, thank Him for it instead.

Does this mean that doubt and fear would not come again on this issue?

Nah!

The devil doesn’t give up easy, its sad though that we Christians are usually the ones who do.

The devil will definitely bring more ‘ideas’ for you to doubt, fear and be weighed down, but that doesn’t mean you have lost your faith, it only proves that you are almost there, and he’s scared of you.

So all you need do is to keep resisting him in the name of Jesus, and he shall flee from you.

For, “At the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2: 10 – 11.

Believe with your heart and with the confessions of your mouth, do not let your senses determine your faith.

I pray for you today and agree with you, that when you are weak, you shall be strengthen, When you have no words to say, the Holy Spirit will help you to pray by giving you utterance, may your faith increase and may you stand your ground until you have your victory, in Jesus Christ name.

In the name of Jesus, let every chain and weight over your spirit, soul and body be broken.

Amen.

“That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” 1 Corinthians 2: 5.
