For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. For we which have believed do enter into rest (Heb 4:2-3a)
According to the scripture above, we understand that the word preached did not profit them because there was no result to show it in their lives. This was because they did not mix the word they heard with faith and those who have believed do enter into His rest. This means if you mix the word of God with faith in you, you will enter what is called the rest of God. The rest of God means to seize moving from your own works and activities. By doing so you see God moving on your behalf, fulfilling in and through you beyond the regions of your own natural reasoning and even human consciousness to produce things in your life that He has promised.
To further explain this, we can see in the scriptures, when the disciples went to meet Jesus and they saw the fig tree which He spoke to wither away and so they asked Him how they can also do the same. Jesus answered them and said, have faith in God or have the God kind of faith. Jesus explained further and said, ‘For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have fought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses (Heb 11:23-26). Therefore, you can only have the things that you are saying and that law cannot be reversed. In order words what you have are the things that you have being saying. This is because there is a connection between what you are experiencing in your life and the words that are coming out of your lips. Words always precede event. What will come next in your life can be heard first in the words coming out of your lips. Also always use words that are consistent with the things that you are praying about and you shall have them. Finally it says when you stand praying forgive so that your heavenly father can forgive you. A forgiving spirit is important to answered prayers.
When things on the outside start going wrong, know that they can only become permanent features of your life when you subject your words to the circumstances that surround you. For instance, if a person’s business starts going down, it will only become a permanent feature in the life of the person when he starts telling people about it. This is because what the person is doing is simply establishing the situation because your words are your authority on the earth. But if you really want to get results and change your situation you have got to mix the word that you know (scriptures) with the promises that God has made concerning that situation with faith on the inside of you. It is only through this process that you can enter into the rest of God where you seize from your own works. This means you are no longer doing anything within your own human capacity to change the situation apart from your daily confessions.
Therefore stop talking about the problem. What the bible says is this, whosoever shall say to this mountain and not speak about the mountain or about how strong the mountain is. But will say to the mountain be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and will not doubt but believe that what they are saying will become the experiences in their life in the nearest future, shall have whatsoever they say.
