Its been proven, that anything you hear over and over again, you will eventually start to believe. And whatever you believe, eventually shows up in your life. Do you know why affirmations are written down and then said aloud every day? Because faith comes by hearing. I had a revelation the other day, and would like to share.
An affirmation is a positive declaration that is designed to promote or encourage the practice of positive thinking. So one would write out a positive affirmation for themselves and say it out loud every day until they believe it, and it actually happens.
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” That’s Romans 10:17 . To effectively increase your faith, read the Bible every day. Consider this, whatever you hear repeatedly, has the power to build you up or tear you down. Just like we need to eat natural food daily to feed our physical body, the same goes for reading the word every day to feed our spirit. When you go a day without eating, your body naturally becomes weak. When you stay away from the word, your spirit becomes weak, creating the perfect opportunity for doubt to rear its ugly head.
God has given to each and every one of us the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). Tap into that faith by hearing God through his word. Let it empower you to speak life into your own life no matter what. If you’ve been praying and asking God to increase your faith, now you know how. He already gave you the answer. Again, Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God!
