with you, all of a sudden, stuff starts making sense, and things start having meaning. And we start
being powerful. But form by itself don’t tell me nothing. But when you take form and put him in the
middle of that sentence, all of a sudden his life has meaning to me.
You see what I’m talking about? Okay.
When we talk about Faith, He said several things here:
‘That if he will BELIEVE in his heart and CONFESS out his mouth, he shall be saved.’
‘Be’ = is a state of ‘being’ verb. It describes your reality.
‘The sower sows the Word’ - Mark chapter 4 when I started my faith teaching. He sows it in their heart.
Out of the overflow heart, the mouth speaks. Out of the overflow of the heart, come the issues of life.
So whatever Word you believe, you’ve got to speak. And if you believe it and you confess
it, you’ll be it.
BUT… what you have to do to change your reality is you have to change your heart.
Let me end with this concept:
I don’t know a Scripture to turn to off the top of my head. But there is a mindset of FAITH, and I’ve had
it. And there is a mindset of DOUBT, and I have had it. I’m talking about a mindset. There were seasons
in my life and in this ministry. There were days where I felt like I could touch it and God would do it. Or I
could SAY it and it show up the next day. Where if I put my foot down it, God would give it to me. There
were days I lived like that and lived like that for years. And for those that have been on staff will remember.
Man, is there anything God ain’t going to do? Is He ever going to say, ‘no’? Every plan succeeded.
I had a mindset of Faith. It was almost unshakeable because even if you hit me with a problem, I would
respond with faith. The devil would hit me with pressure; I would hit him with Faith. I LIVED in a state
of ‘no weapon formed against me can prosper.’ And God would win and He would win every time.
Until one time when I lost… And then I lost again. And then I started getting beat up. And then got beat
up again. And all of a sudden, I went through a string of losses that shifted my mindset to where I began
to get up in the morning with an expectation that the rug would be jerked out from under me yet again
Now, how many preachers that preach faith are going to get up and tell you that? I’m a faith preacher and
I’m telling you that I went through a time where I had a mindset where I WAITED for the bad news to
Mindsets are created by repetition.
