"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 ask
the question, "Look, I have tried that "faith
stuff" and it didn't work for me, why not?"Well, according to this scripture, we fail or are
destroyed for a lack of knowledge. The Hebrew
meaning of the word "destroyed" in this verse
literally is, "To be dumb or silent, hence to
fail or perish." In other words, God's people
are failing in their faith walk because they do
not know what to say and are being silent. Or,
even worse, they are speaking negative things.
We have seen in our studies on the power of
confession that the course of nature in our
lives is determined by our words. (James 3:6)
And 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 are placing ourselves at the
mercy of Satan, and he has no mercy! We must
make the quality decision to speak God's Word!
His Word will promote us and prosper us. Remember, its not enough to "try" that "faith stuff",
we must walk and live by faith and having done all to stand, stand!
The scripture in Eph. 6:13, 14 doesn't say stand in faith a week and
then give up, it says to stand! Be determined to stand forever if
necessary, you'll find that when you assume that kind of winning
attitude you won't have to stand long! We need to receive revelation
knowledge of God's Word and act on it!
