For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
There is an advanced type of faith that will get you to live higher. It will position you to have all that God intended you to have.
FAITH IS EVERYTHING
everything you see around you was built by faith.
SAY - BELIEVE - RECEIVE
How powerful are your words! Your mouth and your words are the birth place of power.
Your world exists because of what you have said. What you have and who you are comes down to what you have said.
It is not reliant on what others say, it is not even dependant on what God says... your success comes down to what you say. (Mark 11:23)
God does not move the mountain... You do!
... and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says
It is not about just believing, it's about believing what you say.
You have two voices -
Outer Voice - speak from your mouth
Inner Voice - thoughts/mind speaks without audibility
Both are the keys to success in life - in order to have success, these 2 voices must be unified.
Genesis 17 and 18 - God told Abraham that he and Sarah were to have a son. Long after the years of childbearing, they would have a son of promise named Isaac.
When they heard this seemingly absurd suggestion, they both laughed within themselves. (Gen 17:17 and Gen 18:12)
When God confronted Sarah, she denied it out of fear.
God hears the inner voice - the voice that no one else hears.
The inner and outer voice must be in unity in order to succeed.
To succeed, your faith has to be different; an advanced faith that comes from the very nature of God and it must start deep within your own heart.
Abraham gave every external sign that he agreed and believed but his inner voice disagreed.
Some of us can be nodding and 'amen-ing' without a deeper registration within you. But that is not being true and authentic to you.
... for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart
1 Samuel 16:7
Your outer voice is cultured by what you are exposed to - the systems of this world which is energised by demons.
Your past experiences can linger and impact your voice well beyond your salvation and you act and respond from the outer man with the outer voice.
When God is talking to you, He talks to your heart, not your face.
When God is listening to you, He listens to your heart, not your mouth.
How aware are you of what you are saying within yourself?
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach)
The outer voice should reflect the inner voice - the closer aligned these voices become, the closer you are to miracles and full power.
... that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Unify your two voices.
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Who do you hear the most in this world? YOU HEAR YOURSELF
So many can not function without being told how to live by others.
DAVID - he pre-conditioned his life long before he met Goliath on the battle field. David was not shaped or influenced by the opinions of others.
People try to make you live at the same level as them. Social groupings want you to stay the same but if you want to live God's purpose to the fullest, you can not try to fit in.
Why fit in when you can stand out?
Have the courage to re-condition your life for what is in store for you up ahead.
Stop listening to other people because it only leads to a dead end.
Rise above the opinions of others and retain your God-given gift of originality.
Self-talk is the most constructive and destructive tool you possess. Talk back to the negative thoughts.
Negativity is a affliction of the mind
Positivity is a condition of the mind
CONDITION YOUR MIND
A negative inner voice is destroying your personality and your potential.
Believing is the entry point but you must do something. Faith without works is dead.
A transformation is the evidence of the inward conditioning.
As you condition your inner voice, this voice grows with the vision and the outer voice fades in significance. You can begin to trust your inner voice and your outer voice no longer affects you.
David would have trained himself with his weapon of choice long before he met Goliath on the battlefield. It would not have been the first time he picked up a sling.
David up skilled and empowered himself to the point of pinpoint accuracy.
He did the same with his inner voice!
I AM BIGGER ON THE INSIDE - I WILL BUILD MYSELF UP!
Even when his men turned on him, David strengthened himself.
He trained his voice to raise him up. To encourage himself. He praised himself from within to that point where it became natural and second nature.
Empower yourself from the inside with your inner voice.
