I have a confession to make.
I have been pretending.
I have been walking with unbelief (secretly).
Like an affair I have been sneaking around with unbelief for awhile now. And it has ruined me.
Proclaiming Jesus can do the impossible but not believing He can do the impossible for me.
Preaching Jesus can change lives but not believing that He can do that for me.
Texting friends that there is hope but not believing hope can exist in my situation.
Teaching that words have power to give life but not believing my words have value.
Posting on social media about the power of God but not believing God is powerful to break through for me.
Witnessing miracles around me but not believing that God can do one for me.
Believing that God’s promise are Yes and Amen but not fully sure how they will come to pass in my life.
Reading how Jesus can set us free from shame and bondage of sin but not sure how He can do that for me.
Speaking purpose and potential to everyone but hardly believing in what God has given me.
Too afraid to ‘Amen’ in bold and confident proclamations with regard to my life.
Wallowing in self-pity and fear and anxiety and disappointments. Hardly living in freedom of the abundant life Jesus came to give.
This was my life.
But I’m done.
I’m breaking up with unbelief. Oh wait, I broke up with unbelief.
It has no place in my life.
It can’t visit me. It can’t take over my life.
From today on, I’m defined by every word God has spoken and I’m just going to BELIEVE it. BELIEVE that everything God has spoken over my life is true and that He can and that He will. Whenever and however.
But whatever, I’m going to praise Him till I see every promise and prophecy fulfilled. I’m going to believe every single word He has spoken to me and take it as it is. I’m not going to think that my life is too difficult for a God who created the heavens and the earth.
I’m changing the locks of this house. So yeah, unbelief you can’t come to my house anymore. This new house has been washed in the blood of Jesus and Jesus lives here. This new house is all things glorious. Fear and anxiety and doubt has no place here.
And oh, by the way. Let me just add.
God can do the impossible for me and He is already doing it.
God can change my situation and my life and He is already doing it.
God is powerful enough to breakthrough for me.
My words have power and I can breathe life because Jesus lives in me.
All the promises God has spoken over me are ‘Yes‘ and ‘Amen‘ in Jesus’ name.
Jesus’ blood is enough to break every bondage of sin and shame in my life and I will never go back to that life again.
I will walk on water with Jesus.
I will inherit every promise He has given
I am a child of God and I’m going to start living like it.
Friend, If you’ve been walking around with unbelief, confess it now. Unbelief is a sin. You need to let it go. And like a good friend told me “Throw your unbelief in the garbage!”.
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:23-24
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:27-29
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6
So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief. Hebrews 3:19
