“Why Do Some Christians Fail?”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” This scripture from Hosea 4:6 answers many questions that are bothering Christians today. Many have made the statement, “I’ve tried ‘that faith stuff,’ and it didn’t work for me!”. Why did they fail? Hosea 4:6 says it was a lack of knowledge that caused their failure! Not only that, you have to LIVE faith (Hab. 2:4, Heb. 10:33), not just TRY it!
What about Hosea 4:6? The word “destroyed” used in the King James in this verse literally means, “to be dumb or silent (not speaking), hence to fail or perish”, in the original language. God’s people are failing in their faith walk because they are not speaking correctly (according to the Word of God), or they are simply not confessing the Word at all. The direction of, and the events in, our lives is determined by our WORDS. (James 3:6) Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue…” We can choose life by choosing our words. If we remain silent, or speak negatively, we leave ourselves at the mercy of satan, and he has no mercy! We must make the quality decision to choose the Word of God and speak it! His Word will promote and prosper us! Remember, it is not enough to “try faith stuff,” we must live and walk by faith, being consistent in our confession and DO THE WORD!
Make a stand on the Word and don’t waver! Ephesians 6:13, 14 does not say, “Stand a week, or a month, or even a year, and then give up!” NO! We are to stand and having done all… STAND! If you are determined to stand forever if necessary, you will usually find you won’t have to stand long! Praise God, satan is defeated! We have the victory! And that victory is our FAITH! (1 John 5:3, 4)
