“And you shall do what is right and good in the sight of the LORD, that it may go well with you, and that you may go in and take possession of the good land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers” (Deuteronomy 6:18 ESV)
I hear people all the time make these type of faith confessions: “My God shall supply all my needs.” (Philippians 4:19) but in actuality, there is no evidence in natural lives of all their need being met. This creates a false witness to those who observe your faith in God. They see your confessions but not your possession. Faith requires possession of the things you prayed for and are believing God for.
Obtaining anything that you believe God for is simply renewing your mind to believe that what God has promised you belongs to you. Scripture says: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by [YOU] changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 NTL) First, “YOU” is implied. Without exercising this new way of thinking, how can you know God’s will for you? You have to step out of your comfort zone and make these scriptures a reality in your life by trying them. “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!” (Malachi 3:10 NLT) God says: Try it! Put me to the test!” In another scripture it says:
”so shall my word be that goes out from [YOUR] my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 ESV
“YOUR” is implied and that is where the power exists when you believe what you speak about your circumstances. So the question becomes: are you having faith (believing) towards the negative outcome in your situation or are you always believing the best in each situation for yourself. It comes out in your words.
Most of your problems are given too much credit. They wear on your emotions and stress you out far beyond what you can sometimes bear. A simple remedy to this is to do what is right because it’s the right thing to do. Even at those times when things don’t seem logical. Why? The Kingdom of God works the opposite of the way the natural world has trained us to think. As an example, the Bible says: “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” (Luke 6:38 NLT) In the natural world this way of doing things makes no sense, does it? Most people would rather keep what they have and hold on to it because of fear of not getting any more. Well, the truth is that when you walk away from the natural way of doing things, then you enter into the dimension of the supernatural where God exists and faith rules. This causes you to trust in God and not on your own ability to make things happen. Since God deals in multiples, when He gives you something, it becomes far greater than that you can get on your own.
