You have to believe The Word – believing The Word of God is a spiritual exercise. You exercise your spiritual muscles when you believe The Word, when you say, ‘I believe that’, ‘I take that’. When you are listening to word preached on TV/Radio or in church & you are hearing a Strong Faith, you say to yourself ‘I believe that Word’.
God operates by Faith. You are not going to come up to a new level of Faith, believing what you believed on the old level. You are going to have to stretch your Faith so that you can come up into that place. Start where you are. We must break the limitations of what kept us back from believing what He Wants To Do for us.
Deuteronomy 30:9 (AMPC): “And the Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, of your cattle, of your land, for good; for the Lord will again delight in prospering you, as He took delight in your fathers.”
(1) “Don’t be asking me to live sparingly when the Bible says, ‘The Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous…
(2) “Don’t expect me to drive an old, wornout car, fly an old, worn-out airplane or live in an old, worn-out house. I don’t serve an old, worn-out God. He Said He would Make us abundantly prosperous. That means more than just prosperous. That means abundantly prosperous. Deuteronomy 28 Says your storehouses will be blessed. ‘Storehouses’ is over and above what you need. That’s abundance!” —Gloria Copeland
Say out loud, “I believe I receive that Word!”
Believe in the Goodness of God. Learn how to expect and receive His Goodness in every area of your life because God Desires only goodness for you!
Hebrews 10:38-39—We Are Believers
Verses 38-39: “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.”
The Reason why His ‘soul shall have no pleasure in him’ is because it gives Him Great pleasure to Prosper His people. If you draw back then you are not giving him any pleasure but if you don’t draw back then you give Him pleasure, and then He Will Bless you. He is a ‘Blesser’, He Doesn’t Want you to be cursed, for we don’t draw back. The actively you believe the Word the Stronger or Greater your Faith becomes, and the More Pleasure God Has, because He is now Able to Bless you (If you do not cut Him off). Do not cut God off: We Cut Him off when we stop the Development our Faith, because we receive from Him by Faith. Once you cut off then it Stops Him, because the limitation is our capacity to receive from Him and He Has so more He Wants Give to us. Be a believer on the Word that get you on the road to Development of your Faith. First of all, you have all the Faith you need (you don’t need anymore). You must however, Develop The Faith (if you are born-again).
Romans 4:17-25: Abraham believed God, & He was Strong in Faith (The more you have God’s Word, The Stronger your Faith Becomes). He believed in agreement with The Word. He didn’t consider the problems at all but he just believed (agreed to) whatever God Said. Faith (The more you have God’s Word, the more Faith Capacity you will have, to receive what God Wants to Pour Out on you.
2 Corinthians 4:13: “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.”
“You could just meditate on the phrase, ‘I’ve got the God kind of Faith.’ I HAVE THE GOD KIND OF FAITH! I—me—Gloria—I have the God kind of Faith. I’ve got it! I don’t have to let the devil run over me. I don’t have to let defeat take me over. I have the God kind of Faith. There has been given to me the measure of the God kind of Faith. All things are possible to him that believes. All things are possible to God. But, also, all things are possible to the one who believes God. That’s me. I have the God kind of Faith. The same Faith that Created this world was Put into my heart when I was born again.
“Now, I have to grow in Faith. I have to be nourished in Faith. I have to do what the Bible plainly Tells me, to increase my Faith if I want to operate in the God kind of Faith. But there is no question about it. I have the God kind of Faith if I am born again.
And that makes me feel good to know that I have that world-changing, world-creating, supernatural power that can create a whole earth from words. I have that in me.” —Gloria Copeland, Faith School
