"Think, Believe & Work”

Post  fennywest on Thu 16 Dec 2010, 9:36 pm




Everything that is existed in God. John 1:1-3 states, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”



Scripture also states, “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible” (Heb 11:3). Therefore, we understand that the words of God created the universe so that things that are seen came from things that were unseen. Similarly, that which is visible came from the invisible. It is interesting to note that God always had everything, but you could not see it. Everything that man has done was in an invisible state first. Consider that all the buildings and businesses that we see were first ideas. Someone had an unseen idea to create stores and markets to provide a place in which you could spend your money. Everything starts in the invisible state.

Everything that we see used to be unseen. Invisible does not mean nonexistent. In Hebrews 11, the scripture says that things are unseen, but it did not say nonexistent. They are simply not seen yet. Therefore, God had the entire universe inside of Him, but you could not see it. This fact is one of the reasons why God is described as omnipotent or “all potential.” All potential is in God. Therefore, everything that is or will be is in God. Why is this important? To understand a thing, you have to understand where it came from.

The concept in biblical record, Mark 11:24, explains that if you can ask anything and if you believe what you desire hard enough, Jesus says it shall be done. His attitude is that if we only knew what we could do. He knows what we are capable of doing, but we do not.

God never told us that all things are possible to those who have a good idea. You have to believe in your idea (Mk 9:23). To believe means to commit oneself or abandon oneself to something no matter what it costs. God is not impressed by our dreams because most of us never wake up. You can have a great dream for your life but never wake up because when we wake up, reality tells us to get to work.

In Genesis, what did God do to get the invisible to become visible? It is exactly the same thing you have to do because you came out of God and operate like Him. We think that He just spoke. He also worked with His hands (Ps 95:5). He worked because Genesis 2:2 says that He rested. Similarly, we cannot just confess things into being; we have to work also. You continue to confess to encourage yourself as you work. You can have all the ideas in the world, but you also have to work them out.



How have you been blessed today?

Yes indeed, we must acknowledge (confess) our faith by being faithful; faithfully making the sincere effort to do the things which He says. For this cause did Christ warn us, saying, "Why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say"? God looks for sincerity in us, and it is the sincere that will continually make the sincere effort to be faithful to His will, which begins by denying our own.
