Under the reaction…

Rom 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

We hear, we believe, and then we act based upon our hearing and believing. 

Ok so we all know, well I hope we know that having Faith in what the Lord says is Good!! Believing the promises given to us in the Word – Strengthens us!!

But lets move this over into an emotional and mental realm…the practical daily fight we live in!!!

We hear, we believe, and then we act based upon our hearing and believing. 

Those words  – ACT BASED UPON OUR HEARING…

Sounds a lot like REACTION to me!!

We react to what we are hearing a lot don’t we?? If we hear just the slightest tinge of a tone that don’t agree with our hearing we REACT..and sometimes badly!!

I find it interesting that this –We hear, we believe, and then we act based upon our hearing and believing is Gods formula for us growing our faith in Him, but it can also be used to enforce our fears that we are listening to and believing. When our mind and soul uses this formula to create and recreate their insecurities and doubts we find ourselves in a garbage dump truck load of trouble.

The key then becomes KNOWING what God wants our faith to be in…do we believe those things we heard about how we are not good enough…how we are smart enough….all those lies that hold of in bondage to fear. Start to believe…choose to believe that one person that said that you are a wonderful person…that you are a beautiful person…that you are AWESOME and God made someone AMAZING when He made you!!!:0)

Chuck the lies and grab the GRACE!!!
