Today, reflect on these principles:
1.Unanswered prayer has more to do with our having the wrong kind of faith than a lack of faith.
2.Men and women were created in God’s image to operate in the same way He does—through words of faith.
3.Faith is active belief. It is a point of action or belief combined with expectation.
4.“‘The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart’ (Romans 10:8). Positive faith and negative faith come by the same means: what we listen to and believe.
5.Sometimes God doesn’t answer our prayers because He knows what we’re asking for wouldn’t be good for us.
6.What you say reflects what is in your heart—what you believe. What you keep saying is what you will receive.
7.Paul said that the word of faith he wanted to plant in believers’ hearts was the one he was preaching—the one given by God. (See Romans 10:8.) 8.The literal translation of Jesus’ statement, “Have faith in God” (Mark 11:22), is, “Have the God kind of faith.”
9.The God kind of faith comes from hearing His Word.
10.A constant diet of God’s Word will nourish your heart. When you experience troubles, the Word will proceed from your mouth, and you will create what the Word says.
11.If you confess and hold on to God’s truth, you will not be made ashamed. He will answer. (See Romans 10:10–11.) Stay connected to the Word of God to bear fruit in season. (See Psalm 1:1–3.)
12.To keep believing, you must plant yourself in a place where the Word is prevalent and the people around you are continually speaking and living it.
