Where is your faith?

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

Do you ever talk yourself out of a relationship, because you think that person is just out of your boundary?

Do you ever have difficulty getting out of bed in the mornings?

Have you ever backed out of a job opportunity, because you thought that you couldn't do it?

How about trying something new?

Are you afraid to fail or to look stupid?

Do you have the will power to finish what you start no matter what the outcome?

If you can answer yes to these and many others like these, you may be filled with self doubt and negative thoughts.

We can change these thoughts of I can't into I can.

You will never know what you can do until you try.

Would you like to change those thoughts, and get rid of that stinking thinking?

If so, read on.
There are many, many people who are defeated by everyday problems that don't have to be.

We have let ourselves become defeated by problems, cares, difficulties, and tragedies of this world.

Should we allow them to dominate us?

Are we supposed to feel and act lifeless, hopeless, and half dead as Christians?

No!

No one has to stay that way!

Ever think that you don't have a prayer?

You do have a prayer and it will carry you through!

Christ came to bring everyone a joyous, enthuastic life.

We can do nothing without Him!

"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

We need to fill our brains with heavenly word from above.

You can rise above the obstacles which try to defeat you.

You can develop a faith in yourself, faith that is justified from above.

We have learned what we put into our brains, is what we will get back out; garbage in, garbage out.

We have to change those thoughts to good healthy thoughts, instead of negative, controlling thoughts.

They are those thoughts that we chosen to dwell in our minds, they are there by our own permission.

"We need to be renewed in the Spirit of our mind." Ephesians 4:23

"It is the Spirit that quickened; the flesh profited nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

Having a terrible disbelief in one's self, no confidence, discouraged, depressed.

I have found a solution by trial and error on my part.

We can find all of our solutions to this problem and many others in the principles of faith brought forth in the Bible.

These principles can heal any negative feelings; those constant thoughts of insecurity, doubt, fear, discouragement, and inadequacy that have dominated our thoughts.

We need to fill our mind with overflowing faith, putting in confident thoughts, putting in God's word.

We can get rid of those negative thoughts, build confidence, self trust, and our faith by getting saturated with God's presence, and reading His word.

We need to build our lives around worshiping our Father, rather than making it another part of our busy schedule.

This will help develop a tremendous faith in God, and that will also give you a humble, yet sound faith in yourself.

"When a man gets to God, it is by the most simple way of words." Oswald Chambers

Here are ten little words that I thought would be helpful to get you started.

By saying these words aloud to yourself, you are putting in good things into your Spirit.

You can and will be able to cope with anything that comes your way.

You can have the ability to meet the adversity and failure and misfortune with a smile.

You don't have to lose your enthusiasm, but keeping faith and confidence.

You never know what you can do until you try.

I took this one little scripture and kept repeating it, as I have needed it often, and is so easy to remember.

It has built up my confidence, self esteem, self worth, and self trust.

I'm finding out that His word will carry me through anything and everything.

"I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Another suggestion that has helped me is to make note cards with some scripture on it, such as...

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall move, and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20 or "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23- or "What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31

There are many, many more scriptures, these are just a few to get you started.

Use these cards, memorize these sayings, take them to heart.

They will take those thoughts of negativity and change them to thoughts of faith and courage overtime.

We have to change what we fill our mind with, they need to be good affirmations.

With the support and help of God, He can and will change our thought process. We have got to have a continual attitude of dependence upon God.

"He went out, not knowing whither he went." Hebrews 11:8

Faith is not knowing where you are going, but knowing the One who is leading.

Faith is a life of walking it out, not getting weary, not fainting.

"For we walk by faith, not by sight." II Corinthians 8:7

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

We must build our faith on that light that never fails, not on our own circumstances.

Once we start trusting Him, watch at how quickly all your difficulties will vanish because we are standing in faith.

As we keep standing our faith will become natural, and our difficulties will become less, and our trusting will be natural and an unconscious action.

We need to stay in tune with God at all times.

He has to be our focus!

Our whole heart must belong to Him.

Everything that we do must be done with an attitude of love and obedience.

We have to act responsibly with what God has given us.Prayer is another great way for each of us, in helping with our daily circumstances.

It will help open up our mind to His will, to know what He wants for our life.

It is not enough to be emptied of negative thoughts, but we need to be filled with His Spirit, to accomplish the purpose He has for our life.

His purpose is to simplify our faith, to that of a child. God will sometimes allow you to be tried in a place, a place of testing, to see if you are willing to joyfully waive your right and let Him chose for you.

This will bring you to a continual dependence upon God.

Always remember that God will see you through anything, and everything, so stay close to Him!

Looking for what to say, how to overcome problems, reach goals, live a more stress free life, and want a solution that will work?

A must read book for anyone of all ages.

Are you a business man, a parent, a student, or educator?

No matter who you are, or what walk of life you come from, anyone who wants to overcome in daily life can.

One can learn to solve problems, help conquer intimidating problems, accomplish goals that were never thought possible, and finding that long term inner peace.

All things are possible to those who believe.

Take your life and all it's problems and put them into God's hands.

If you really try you can!

Trust Him now for everything, and see if He will not do for you exceedingly abundantly, above all you could ever have asked or thought.

My heavenly Father,
Give me the strength to face each night
Let there be no sorrow in my smile
Let me count each passing moment
Give me hope for each tomorrow
Today is where I am
Let me be concerned about today
Let there be no sadness
But only let in, that joy, that comes in the morning!

Thank you Lord, for that gracious gift of forgiveness and peace of mind I receive each and everyday.

I will trust in Him!

Live by Faith
Walk by Faith
Stand by Faith
