As a Man Believes - The Power of Faith

Dear Mathew,

Do you believe? What do you believe in? Do you know that there is power in your belief?

Let's explore this topic together in today's devotional:

As a Man Believes - The Power of Faith

"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." -Romans 10:9 (NKJV)

In December 1994 at a church men’s retreat, I accepted a call to come up to the altar to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour. I was so excited when the minister said, "You are now saved!" When I got back to my room and reflected upon what had happened, I was uncertain if I was truly saved. I did not understand how a simple verbal confession could be the key to eternal life. Later that day, I was in a cabin with my mentor who was sleeping under the bunk bed. I woke my mentor up and asked, "How do I know I’m saved?"

My mentor took me to the pastor's cabin, and said to the pastors, "This young man just got saved but he is not sure if he is truly saved. How does he know if he is truly saved?" One of the pastors said, "Turn your Bible to Romans 10:9."  I did and he said, "Read it." I read, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." When I finished reading, he asked, "What do you think?" I responded, "What do you mean?" He said read it again and I read for the second time; "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."  


When I finished reading the second time, he asked, "What do you think?"  I responded, "What do you mean?"  He said read it again and I read it for the third time, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and 
BELIEVE in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." I said, "So all I must do is BELIEVE?" He said, "Yes! Do you BELIEVE?" I said, "Yes, I BELIEVE!"  He replied, "Then you are saved!" and I shouted with joy, "I’m saved! I’m saved!"  

That was the happiest moment of my life that, redefined my future and set the course to of my destiny.  What was it about that day that changed everything for me?  Was it the confession? No, it was the belief in what I had confessed. Words have meaning but belief has power. Belief in the words you say gives power to the words. What is it about belief that is able to get one saved, move mountains, and do miracles?  


To believe is to trust with conviction. It is to allow the meaning of the words to sink into your heart and release power with your conviction. It is that which releases faith.  Faith cannot exist without belief. Belief is the catalyst of faith.  


What areas of your life and business do you need to see change? What dreams do you want to see realized? Are you realizing God’s promises for your life and business? In order to see them come to the past, you need to believe, so do you believe in them? If you do and if they are according to God’s plan for your life, it will be realized. If a belief can change someone’s destiny and give them eternal life, imagine what it can do for you. Now the question is how do you believe?  

Here are the keys to believing:

  1. Trust in the words your read and say and make sure that they align with God’s plan for your life and business

  2. Be convicted by the words you read and say and make sure that they align with God’s plan for your life and business

  3. Have confidence in what you read and say and make sure that it aligns with God’s plan for your life and business

  4. Accept what you read and say to be true and make sure that it aligns with God’s plan for your life and business

  5. Act on what you read and say and make sure that it aligns with God’s plan for your life and business


Belief is about trust and conviction which releases faith. Faith has the power to help you realize God’s plan for your life and business.


My prayer for you today is that God will give you the grace to believe in His promises for your life and business so that you can fulfill His plans in the marketplace.

Reflection: Do you believe in the Word of God? Is it bearing fruits in your life?
