FAITH AND POWER


“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you,” (James 1:5).

“Think about what you are thinking about,” Joyce Meyer teaches. Instead of dwelling on what is wrong in your life, or on the lies Satan throws at you, think about the strong omnipotent power that God brings into your life. Think about open heart-felt prayer between you and God. Seek greater faith to trust His faithfulness.

Without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Pray for greater faith to believe. Think about having greater faith to believe. Dwell on that thought. Roll it around in your mind until it is what you think about continually. Get into the Word and learn that faith comes by hearing and understanding the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Ask for wisdom to discern the Word. He does not withhold it from you. He gives it generously. That wisdom helps you discern the author of your thoughts, and His power brings your thoughts under His control (2 Corinthians 10:5).

Faith enables you to test His power in your life. As you give Him the gift of your determined and mustard-seed faith, He gives His faith back to you with increasing power to believe. But that power must be exercised. Determine to overcome Satan's lies or your own fearful thoughts, and determine to believe in His truth. His power and your faith go hand-in-hand. His faith in you is completed by the power you exercise.
