As I was preparing a teaching for my new mentoring group about how to confidently hear God, suddenly a “thought” came to me:
Doubt/Unbelief comes the same way faith does: by hearing!
I had never thought about this, so I asked the Lord (prayed) about it.
Immediately a Scripture came to mind: “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
Then I thought:
“Doubt comes by hearing, and hearing by the world.”
Wow! I had never thought about it that way, but it’s the same process!
What the world is saying is contrary to the WORD! It causes fear, distrust, doubt and unbelief! The “L” makes a lie of God’s Word!
We must guard our hearts to what we are hearing! Jesus said to “Take heed what you hear.” (Mark 4:24, Luke 8:18)
If we don’t take the thought we are hearing captive, it can go into our heart and become a belief that we will live from! “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23 NLT
The same process that brings salvation and faith (believing in our heart and speaking with our mouth) will be hijacked by the enemy. In order to live empowered, you will need to protect what you are hearing and spend time listening to God’s Truth!
