“…If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23)
Do we really understand the power of believing? To believe, according to the dictionary is “to accept as true or real;” or “to have firm faith…” Far too often we all have heard someone saying, ‘I can’t believe that’. But what are they really saying? As I pointed out in an earlier blog, The Words We Speak; our words have power and they will either work for us or against us. The power is in us and the choice is entirely ours.
Our lives have been built entirely upon the words we have spoken, which comes from the thoughts we have, which are based upon what we believe. That which we believe in our hearts will dominate the thoughts in our heads and those things we spend time thinking about will ultimately begin to be the things we speak most often. And because our words are the creative force of our lives, we in short will begin to experience the very things we are saying—whether you want it or not!
Jesus told us that it is not the things that go into our bodies that defile us; He said rather, it is that which comes out of us that defiles us…(Matt. 15:16-20). This leads me to believe that the things that we believe are the things that are the foundation of what comes out of our mouths in the words that we speak. In other words, the foundation of our words and actions are the things that we believe.
Consequently, if we are not satisfied with what we’re getting out of life, then we must take an account of the things that we believe. If you want to change what you have been getting out of life, you must build your life and your belief system in what you want to come to pass. God has told us in his word that life and death is in the power of the tongue…(Prov. 18:21). In other words, we have the ability to build our lives, or to create our lives for good or for bad…solely from the things that we say!
We absolutely can change anything in our life by changing what we believe. To achieve that, we would have to choose to study the Word of God to find out what God says about us and His plans for us. God has a design and a plan for each of us…the question is, will we do what it takes to find out what God is saying; and what God’s plan is for us. We must take the time to learn the way and the will of God through the systematic study of the His Word, so we can change our belief systems and subsequently change our way of thinking so that we can change our life. Ultimately the choice, the decision, and change, depends entirely upon us and the effort we make. In other words:
Change your believing, change your life!
