The Power of Belief: “I think, therefore it is, and so shall it be”


Faith Is

Hi Everybody,

The Power of Belief is more powerful than speech because everything created began with a thought before it was spoken into motion.

Did you know that you were first thought of before you were created?

imagesCAIDMM6RJeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

We were all in the mind of God before He even spoke the world into motion.  He knew how we would look like before we were created. We were part of God’s imagination before we became His manifested creation. We can never know the mind of an artist until they translate their thoughts and ideas into something tangible, into something we can see and experience just like how you can never know the mind of a writer until they put their thoughts into writing so that you can read to understand their thoughts and ideas that are translated into words written on paper.

The Lord has been showing me how incredible we as people really are.  In the Word we are described as “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” (Psalm 139:14) and even though this is true, as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God, we still struggle with an inferiority complex. We still don’t know who we are in Christ Jesus because we simply do not believe in God’s Word and what He says about us.

God Thinks, therefore I AM a Child of God created in His Image and Likeness.

How many of us really believe that?

Did you know that Miracles are a substance created from Hope that is rooted in Faith that comes from the thinker who decides to simply BELIEVE?

When you believe something is…it becomes your reality.

God has been speaking to me about guarding your mind as you build up your Faith. What you believe is what you become. It is important to guard your mind because even though there is power in spoken words, those spoken words first come from the heart of the thinker who believes in what they are saying.

imagesCA91MCEAProverbs 23:7

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
 
Whatever philosophy that you hold onto as Truth, inevitably becomes your reality if that is what you choose to BELIEVE.
 
So the question is: “What do you believe?”. Whose report do you Believe Do you believe in the Report of the Lord?
 
I believe that in the present time, we have to prepare our hearts to believe that what may seem impossible to us can become possible if we put our Faith and Trust in the right place which is in God’s Hands. If you believe in your heart that whatever you have need of  from the Lord and believe that God is able to meet that need, your thoughts will translate your faith into something that will become a tangible reality. If you believe that you are healed, your healing shall become so according to the proportion of your Faith. If you Trust God to break the bondages of poverty, sickness, divorce, abuse, addictions or whatever need you have of the Lord, and believe that He is able to break the chains and these reoccuring patterns of curses operating in your bloodline/generation, then your freedom will become your reality if you just believe that God is able. When you allow doubt to enter into your mind….that is when your belief system is crippled. Negative thoughts prevent people from seeing and receiving miracles because miracles are birthed from Faith that is rooted in ones belief.
 
thomasSome people have a “Doubting Thomas” spirit that needs to see things in order to believe”. Thomas was one of the disciples who needed to see the physical manifested resurrection of Jesus and touch his wounds as proof in order to believe that Jesus did in fact rise and is risen from the dead in fulfillment of the scriptures.
 

John 20:24-25

[ Seeing and Believing ]24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
 
Thomas did not believe in the miracle of Christ’s resurrection until he could perceive things with his own eyes. This is something to take note of because he totally missed his chance for his miracle that would transform his destiny just because of his doubt. Before meeting Thomas, the other disciples met Jesus and were commissioned to become apostles while Thomas was not there with them to witness this great miracle of Jesus’ Resurrection. The Lord Jesus breathed on the disciples who believed and they ended up being the ones who received the fire of the HOLY SPIRIT.
 

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them,Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

What you receive from the Lord is attached to your level of Faith and Belief.

Thomas missed his chance to receive the Holy Spirit in this way just because he was stubborn in his DOUBT.

This event spoke volumes to me because it tells me that we need to have an already built-in expectation of Faith in order to receive a miracle. If you prepare your heart and choose to believe, you will see what you believe before it even happens. Those who doubt do not prepare to receive and therefore, it is no suprise that when a miracle does occur even in their midst, they that doubted often are the ones who miss out on their blessings.

So How Do We Go About Preparing for a Miracle? 

“How does one prepare for a storm?”

Sometimes weather forcasters tell us to prepare for hurricanes and other types of weather. You’ll have some people the will hear the report and believe in the report and will act on what they believe by preparing to stock up on food, boarding up and reinforcing their houses and whatever property they have to ensure that they are secure before the storm hits.

What was demonstrated here? FAITH IN ACTION.

The people first hear the report, believe in the report and act on it by preparing for what they believed in.  Wisdom is also demonstrated by those that don’t yield to doubt and hold on to Faith. Such people don’t need to see the storm in order to know that they need to prepare for it before it hits.

At the same time, we will have people that will hear the same report and will choose not to respond to it simply because they do not believe in the report of the weather forecasters.  They will choose not to prepare for it because in their mind they think the storm is highly unlikely to hit them and even if it were to hit, they will be convinced that it wouldn’t necessarily affect them or create real damage. Such people and their DOUBT causes them to miss out on the opportunity to prepare for the storm. By the time the storm hits, it is already too late to prepare to shield yourself for the onslaught that the winds bring as damage ensues from the rage of the storm.

This analogy is the same for miracles. 2Cor5-7

Just because you don’t see the storm doesn’t mean it won’t hit. A gentle wind can turn into a furious toronado filled with power given the amount of time and pressure required to gather momentum. If you are warned before hand to prepare for a storm, you will be prepared to handle what it brings if you respond to the report. However, for those who ignore such reports because of their heavy-seated doubts, they end up potentially being robbed of their chance to preserve their belongings as everything is taken away by the storm.

In the same way, those that believe in a miracle are the ones who prepare to receive one when they choose to BELIEVE IN THE REPORT OF THE LORD.  If you doubt God, you won’t receive your miracle because you failed to prepare your heart to build up your faith so that you can believe in what He has for you.

Belief in God is required in order to receive your miracle. It’s as simple as that.

Seeing is not believing, believing is seeing.

You have to prepare your heart so that it is unwavering in order to receive a miracle. Undaunted faith releases that which you hoped to receive. If you allow room for doubt, you will miss your blessings. I sense that the Lord wants people to prepare their hearts to believe so that we can receive that which we hoped for as the rain of miracles will rain down in due season.  If you don’t believe, you won’t receive and you will miss opportunities just because you didn’t prepare your heart and build your Faith. The time is NOW to prepare your heart and build your faith because the latter rain is going to be greater than the former.

So People of God…. Pursue to Build up your Faith in order to see the tangible manifestation of your miracles that God has waiting for you. Confess your doubts and ask God to give you more Faith. The more faith you have, the greater the miracle that will be released; however, God is searching for mustard seed Faith in the Body of Christ because there is such a stronghold of unbelief that is locking up people’s miracles. Be encouraged and seek God to increase your Faith, today! God bless you everybody!

  1. This is a timely and awesome reminder of who God is. I love your writing too. It is so clear, and easy to understand. I was especially tuned into your explanation of Thomas. Thanks again. Peace, Ressurrection 🙂
