"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)
