Faith is defined as a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny. Do you believe in the power of God? Can you trust Him for your needs and heart desires? Faith is absolute dependence and total believe in the ability of God to do all things. A bad economy does not limit God’s power. What goes on around us does not limit Him; He can be limited only by our thinking. God likes to show up and show out in hard times for us. He likes to do the extraordinary because it brings Him more honour.
Don’t dwell on your problems. If you have a poor mouth, you will have a poor life. You may not be buoyant financially, but you are still connected to the vine. A relationship may fall apart, but God is still on the throne. You may not see a way out because your resources are limited, God owns it all. Have faith in God, and believe that you will thrive, not merely survive.
There will always be bad news, but we always have other news that says, you are blessed. You are prosperous, you are talented, you are creative, and you are well able to do what God has called you to do. Know that God is still on the throne, He is Jehovah Jireh; the Lord our provider. (Joel 2: 21)
When you give your thoughts to fear, it distances your perception. It obscures your vision. It makes things look worse than they really are; but it is mostly an illusion. Negative thoughts turn into negative images. Even small fears can become terrifying when you blow them out of proportion. Why are you fearful when you have a God that can do all things? Matt. 8: 26.
Your mind is like a TV set; do not allow negative pictures play on the movie screen of your mind. You own the remote control. Change the channel; don’t be talked into having a bad day, month and a year.
Our God is all powerful; therefore, there are no obstacles too big for you, no energy too strong. God has brought you through bigger problems in the past, and He will see you through both in the present and in the future. Surround yourself with people of faith who would speak victory into your life; make decision each day to choose faith over fear.
Help me Lord, to exercise absolute dependence on you in every situations of life.
