Day 22 | Life Changing Beliefs
The Crucial Moment – This is a great devotional to help us stay grounded when we are experiencing things contrary to God's promises. Yes, the conclusions we place at these times are indeed crucial to our destinies. Speaking of conclusions, here are notes from a message I preached, called "Five Life Changing Beliefs." I will share belief #1 today. Put this promise on your lips and see what happens.
Life-Changing Belief: There is Always a Solution
Out of my book, Let's Just Laugh At That, let me just share this lie: "There are no solutions for this situation."
Here’s some laughable assumptions:
‘This situation is so bad that even prayer is pointless.’ Ha ha ha!
‘The devil has won a complete victory therefore resistance is futile.’ Ha ha ha!
‘God cannot work this situation for good and the lives impacted by it.’ Ha ha ha!
“God does not have any wisdom for what should be done.’ Ha ha ha!
‘Breakthrough is always difficult and will take a long time.’ Ha ha ha!
‘God is angry and does not want to help those involved.’ Ha ha ha!
Now here’s the truth: ‘God makes a way where there seems to be no way.’
Say that out loud – ‘God makes a way where there seems to be no way.’
Say it again – ‘God makes a way where there seems to be no way.’
The Red Sea parted when it looked hopeless. God had a plan to defeat Goliath that no one was aware of. Bitter waters were made surprisingly sweet by the unusual solution of throwing a tree into them. We release unusual solutions over you. We release ideas from Heaven. Jesus multiplied food when it was limited, a famine ended in a day, and money needed to pay taxes was found in the unusual location of a fish’s mouth. Now that’s interesting! There is always a solution.
That’s a power truth. If the brain doesn’t think there is a solution, it won’t look for a solution and hope is always the beginning point of any change. There are no hopeless circumstances, there are only hopeless people. Once people get true hope it’s impossible for things not to change. There is always a solution and when you speak out, something happens. Something happens in the atmosphere and there’s a solution for everything.
I love 1 Corinthians 10:13, it says ‘ No temptation has overtaken you such is common to man.’ The word 'temptation' is also translated as ‘trial,’ ‘But God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape that you may be able to bear it.’ That’s one of the biggest hope bringing verses in all the Bible. Wherever you’re at, God has a way of escape. There is a way of escape. ‘I’m a million dollars in debt.’ There’s the way of escape. You can get out. There is a way! There is a way! That relationship problem you just don’t know how to get through. There is a way! That area of personal weakness. There is a way! You may not know it, but there is a way! There is, there is a way! And once you start believing there is a way you participate in the Divine nature and you see the way! It happens. It manifests. There is always a solution.
LET'S DECLARE THIS!
