Is Your Faith In God Neglecting These 2 Words?

Would you like to know how 2 words can improve your faith in God by removing fear and how 2 simple steps will allow God to bless you and change your life for the better just like you always dreamed about.

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 unto you.

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 consistently.

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 heart is.

#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.
