“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24
Believing. That’s the key to everything in the kingdom of God. It’s the way we tap in to the very power of Almighty God. Most all of us know that. But few of us are sure exactly how to do that kind of believing. We don’t know how to put it into action.
Actually it’s so simple, it’s startling. It’s as simple as saying, “I believe I receive.”
Something happens in your spirit when you say those words. I don’t understand how, but it does. I don’t understand how my digestive system knows what to do when I swallow something, but it does. All I have to do is take a bite of food and it goes to work. I don’t have to make it happen. I don’t have to feel it happen. It just happens. That’s the way the body is made.
In much the same way, when you feed on God’s precious promises and “swallow” them into your spirit by saying, “I believe I receive,” faith is released. You don’t have to make it happen. You don’t have to feel it happen. It just happens. The reborn spirit is made that way.
When you constantly say with your mouth, “I believe I receive my healing” or “I believe I receive my financial needs met,” and then quote the scriptures that back those things, faith is released to bring power to bear on those needs.
As Dr. Kenneth Hagin says, you need to “keep the switch of faith turned on.” And Gloria and I have discovered that speaking out that phrase, “I believe I receive,” is one way to do it. We say it when we pray. We say it when we praise God. We say it when we read the Word.
We especially say it in the face of darkness when it looks like we’re not receiving. When everything looks the worst, we say it the loudest. I believe I receive!
Do you want to activate your faith today? Then make these four key words the most important words in your vocabulary. Use them every day. You’ll soon discover, just as we did…they work!

Read this great post on creativity on Tumblr and thought I’d share.
Creativity means making the most of it.
It’s easy to blame a lack of creative inspiration or motivation on circumstance, but to do so is to forget that creativity is about curiosity, resourcefulness, and action.
Creativity takes no excuses.
“My boss doesn’t allow for new ideas,” is another way of saying “I can’t come up with a creative way to sell my ideas, to innovate.”
“My job is too restrictive,” is another way of thinking you’re stuck with the perspective of the work you’ve been instructed to pursue.
But like the painter looking at the edges of the canvas, the best ideas are built within constraints, by seeing what’s possible within the bounds. As Steven Johnson writes in his book, Where Good Ideas Come From:
“Good ideas are…inevitably, constrained by the parts and skills that surround them.”
Often the solution to feeling creatively restricted is more creativity.
If you’re feeling creatively constrained, look at the resources available to you, flip your perspective, ask for help, or challenge yourself to innovate in small steps. If you find yourself constantly restricted in what you can do with your ideas, take a step back and determine what it is within yourself that is making you feel so.
Lack of energy or interest in the work, not enough on the table, feelings of the effort being unappreciated, these are all ways we lose touch with our creativity and turn toward external excuses rather than trying to solve the issues themselves.
Maybe above all, always remember the wise words from Pixar’s Ed Catmull: “When faced with a challenge, get smarter.”

Consider, for example, the time He brought the Israelites out of Egypt. He did such a mighty work of healing among them “there was not one feeble person among their tribes” (Psalm 105:37). Imagine it! God healed millions of Israelites all at once. He is able to do that, so you can rest assured He can handle any sickness that might come against you. You’re just one person. Healing you of anything is easy for God! For Him to do it, however, you need to give Him something to work with.
What do you have to give Him?
Faith! Not just a vague kind of hope that everything will turn out all right. But real, Bible faith based on God’s Word. The kind of faith that makes you bold enough to believe and say,“As surely as it was God’s will to heal the Israelites, it’s His will to heal me. So I believe I receive my healing now.
In Jesus’ Name, I AM HEALED! – G. Copeland
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
As long as you live by the Word of God, you never have to be in the dark again. You never have to remain in confusion about which path to take. You never have to grope blindly along, struggling to find your own way.
Isn’t that great? Isn’t it exciting to know that the Word of God will give you all the light you need every day of your life if you’ll allow it to?
Build your faith in that Word and renew your commitment to it as you make this confession today:
“Father, in the Name of Jesus, I commit myself to walk in Your Word. I recognize that Your Word is integrity itself– steadfast, sure, eternal–and I trust my life to its provisions.
“You have sent Your Word forth into my heart. I let it dwell in me richly in all wisdom. It does not depart out of my mouth; I meditate in it day and night so that I may diligently act on it. Your Word is an incorruptible seed, abiding in my spirit, and it’s growing mightily in me now, producing Your nature, Your life.
“I thank You, Father, that Your Word is my counsel, my shield, my buckler, my powerful weapon in battle. It is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. It makes my way straight before me, and I never stumble or fall for my steps are ordered by Your Word.
“I recognize the strategies and deceits of Satan and I put a stop to them by speaking Your Word out of my mouth in faith.
“I am confident, Father, that You are at work in me both to will and to do Your good pleasure. I exalt Your Word. I hold it in high esteem and give it first place in my life. I boldly and confidently say that my heart is fixed and established on the solid foundation–the living Word of God. Amen!
