Separated Faith

You may not understand that what we believe in our heart charts the course of our life. If we believe the wrong thing, then our lives follow that course out of the will of God. But when we fully understand that God is for us, loves us and has blessed us with every spiritual blessing, then our lives begin to develop according to God will.

Romans 10:9-10 “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth you are saved.”

Two powerful elements of faith – what you believe in your heart and the words you say—they must match to have any effect in receiving the promises of God.

If you believe Jesus in your heart – but the words you say contradict your heart, then your faith is not a separated faith. Remember that one smidgen of doubt or unbelief cancels out your prayerful request. God does not honor doubt or unbelief, however He does know His plans for you and will encourage you to trust Him.

To get the right view of God in your heart, you must begin to believe what He has said about you and to you – that you are blessed, you are welcomed, you are anointed, you have authority in the natural world, you are no longer a slave but are free, you are holy and righteous because God lives in you.

Renew your mind to the truth given in His Word, believe them and your faith will be consecrated unto the Lord. You'll live doubt free and the promises of God will flow in you and through you.

Proverbs 23:17 “Don't envy sinners, but always continue to fear [honor] the Lord. For surely you have a future ahead of you, your hope will not be disappointed.”
