Faith takes work. Faith takes patience. Faith requires love.
If we magnify the problem, we will continue to experience the problem. But if we have faith in the finished work of Christ, we will experience the abundant life that He has promised (John 10:10).
You are killing the dream that God has for your life if you are walking in fear, doubt, unbelief.
Have faith in God.
Whose Report Will You Believe?
If God has given you a dream, a promise, a word over your life, it is your responsibility to stand, believing that you receive the manifestation of it in your life.
When Moses sent the 12 spies out to “spy out the land”, 10 of them came back with a negative report. They complained that the nations over there were too strong for the Israelites to take on.
You see, that be our problem: just like the Hebrew nation, we think that we are suppose to take on the giants in our lives in our own strength.
And that mentality ticks God off. Here’s what He pronounced as a result of the 10 spies negative report:
You, too, have experienced the Goodness of God in the land of the living.
So, as always, we have a choice. We can choose to believe the negative report of the naysayers or we can believe the report of the Lord. It’s serious business. And for that reason, if you feel like you have been going around the same mountain, missing God’s will for your life, know that it’s not too late for God to use you. So be encouraged. The Lord wants you to know that He is all-powerful, He can redeem the time, and He can put you exactly where you are suppose to be.
Ain’t He Good! Won’t He do it! Amen!
Your part in this matter is to repent, become willing and obedient, and seek God daily asking Him to help you hunger and thirst after righteousness.
Use the Power of Your Words to Propel You Into Your Purpose
The Bible says of Joshua and Caleb, that they had a “different spirit”. They said what God said. God had already promised them the land (it had been prophesied to them hundreds of years before!).
Yet, the naysayers could only see themselves as small in the sight of the heathen nations. So they received the fruit of their lips:
Jehovah God is Almighty! Give Him Praise and Glory!
God has given you a promise, a vision, a dream. Yes? He wants you to believe Him for Who He is and what He is able to do. He wants you to love Him with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength, and to trust Him for His Words sake.
Don’t be deceived. If you are going about establishing your own ways (and in fear, doubt, unbelief), you will die in the wilderness.
Stop killing your dreams through doubt, fear and unbelief. Don’t be a dream killer.
Hold on to your dreams. Obey God. And trust Him (the “Dream Giver”) to bring your dreams into reality.
Grace and Peace,
