I'll get right to the point, the two words that you
may be neglecting that might be causing you to lose
your faith in God are, God's words and your words.
1 - Hear The Word Of God.
In order to depend on God you must depend on His word
and in order to get answers to your prayers you must
know His word.
John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in
you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done
This is a very costly mistake that you can't afford to
continue to make, and here's why.
The fact is most people will do almost anything to
hold on to the things they love or enjoy; that which
makes them happy.
The things that are most dear to you are the things
you spend the most time thinking about.
Since the devil knows this he will attack whatever it
is that you hold dear in order to draw you further
away from God, making you an easy target especially if
you are slack in your knowledge of the Bible.
What is it that you hold dear to your heart? Think...
Now imagine how you would react if it was taken away
from you all of a sudden.
"I would be totally stressed out", is probably an
understatement for most people.
In order to defeat this type of fear you must learn to
meditate on the verses from the Bible, and do it
There is nothing that will defeat fear more than
spending time with God, period.
I covered this topic extensively in my last article,
"How To Meditate Using The Bible Like A Double-Edged
Sword", therefore I will move on.
But keep in mind that the words that you say you
believe but don't do are not fully manifested in your
heart yet. Solomon said, "For as he thinketh in his
heart, so is he". (Proverbs 23:7). Which means
whatever you think about the most that's where your
2 - Speak The Word Of God.
The next thing you must do is to speak the words from
the Bible that you meditated on. The secret is to use
these word's as a defense against negative thoughts
and words that are trying to take over your brain.
For example: If someone you know says, "you're a
loser who will never amount to anything, just like
your father, and your marriage is going to fail
because you can't control your temper".
Don't even consider this as being close to the truth.
No! Not even for one second and especially if it looks
like they may be telling the truth.
I'm warning you about this because it could cause you
to meditate on that statement as a negative thought
which will produce more fear, doubt and replace the
faith in God in your life which in turn will cause you
to suffer and may even unwittingly help bring that
statement to pass.
But instead of letting that statement take hold of you
what you do is speak the truth in the word of God
against the lie pretending to be reality.
Which in this case would be, "No weapon that is formed
against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that
shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the
LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the
LORD." (Isaiah 54:17). but you can just say "No weapon
that is formed against me shall prosper".
Or you could be like Jesus and simply say "get thee
behind me satan" (Matthew 16:23, Mark 8:33, Luke 4:8)
Yes, this is simply positive thinking but by using it
in conjunction with the incorruptible word of God it
is infinite in wisdom and power and can do anything.
In order to manifest the power of those words you have
to live your whole life like you believe those words
and have a strong image in your mind of how those
words are beneficial to your life.
The way to do this like I demonstrated above is by
practicing renouncing all negative comments that you
hear and thoughts that show up in your mind by
speaking the word of God against them.
