Faith come from hearing…what you hear determines what you have faith in or what you believe will happen. Is this not why the media tells you what they want you to hear and nothing else? Have you ever noticed how few news stories are on the news? Have you ever wondered what the thought is behind only sharing the same story over and over again? It is because they have one narrative they want you to believe, for they know that faith comes by hearing and their goal is to get you to believe them.
The enemy is a counterfeit not an original. The devil is not a creator he is created, so he cannot come up with any new ideas. All he can do is twist one of God’s ideas. So the Bible says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God!” The enemy says, hmmmmmmm faith comes by hearing, let’s control the narrative then we can control what the people believe, that is if they listen to what we have to say. My friends, it is not a new strategy, it is a tried and true tactic. The only reason it works is because many believers listen more to the news than they do the Bible. Thefore, their faith is in what another person says, rather than what God says.
I was praying Psalm 74 this morning and verse 12 leaped off the page at me and I knew the Lord wanted this verse to be what we believe. “God is my king from of old, Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.” The truth is we have an enemy and he is working with people to destroy our lives, but the superior truth is we have a God, a King of old, who is working deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth. I am not preaching a happy gospel, I am declaring to you, daily, the deeds of deliverance God is doing in the earth, because Psalm 24 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness their of and all who dwell in it!” The enemy does not own the earth, God does and the owner is working deeds of deliverance even right now. Can you see it? Can you hear it? Do you believe it?
