Learn The Language Of Success

So many times when people pray, they only pray the problem.
“Dear God, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I owe all this money! I’ve lost my job! No money is coming in. Lord, I’ll never get these bills paid! This is a big mountain in my life, Lord, and I pray that You’ll move it out of the way. Please do something about these problems.”
In a prayer like this, the goal is set only on the problem; and as it is prayed, the impulse is released to the heart to produce that goal.
But Jesus said that the Father knows what we have need of, even before we ask Him. (Matt. 6:8.) Our part is to pray the answer.
“Father, in the name of Jesus, Your Word says that whatever I desire, when I pray, believe I receive it and I shall have it. So I am doing that now. I have given, so I believe that it is being given unto me-good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. I proclaim that all my needs are met according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I can pray this, Father, because it is according to Your Word, and I know that Your Word works!”
When you pray such a prayer as this, there will be people around you who will try to talk you out of it. Don’t listen to them. Set your goal on the solution and keep it there!
One lady said she received healing for arthritis after hands were laid on her in the name of Jesus. She was almost totally well for several months. Then people started calling her and leading her into conversations like this: 
“How are you doing?”
“Oh, I’m just doing fine.”
“Well, you know these things come back sometimes. Don’t you feel any pain?”
“Well, yes, there is just a little bit.”
“Yes, that’s what I thought.”
That lady said she began to listen to that until she eventually lost her healing. When she started talking about her problems, her mind was soon back on the arthritis and it came back on her.
I can never overemphasize the importance of the words you speak. Jesus said that we will have whatsoever we say. (Mark 11:23,24.) We cannot talk sickness and disease and expect to walk in health. The same is true of prosperity. We cannot continue saying things like, “We never can afford the things we need,” and expect to walk in prosperity.
It may be true that you can’t afford very much at that time, but don’t talk about it. Instead, keep your words in line with God’s Word: “I have given, so I know it is given unto me. It’s mine now even though I don’t see it. It belongs to me. God said it is mine, so I am going to believe God!” 
God’s faith will never fail and God’s Word will never fail, but you can cause your own faith to fail by getting your eye on the problem. Learn the language of success and practice it.

A Double-minded Man Gets Nothing from God

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8
A double-minded man allows circumstances to influence him and keeps changing his goal. He may set his goal on prosperity; but if somebody tells him, “It’s not God’s will for you to have riches, ” he dials back to poverty. 
After he goes to an uplifting meeting, he switches his goal to prosperity; but when he goes back to his church and hears, “You’re never going to get anything in this life,” he turns back to poverty again. He will never become prosperous.
A certain minister tells the story of a paralyzed man who came to one of his meetings in a wheelchair. God healed him, and he walked out of the meeting that night!
The next day his pastor came to see him “to straighten him out.” Though the man walked to the door and let him in, the pastor wasn’t impressed. He said, “Brother, all healing went out with the apostles. This is of the Devil, and you would be better off in a wheelchair than to be healed this way!”
When the pastor left, the man was unable to move from his chair: He had lost his healing! The goal-setter-the impulse to that man’s heart-had been reset for sickness by the words that pastor had spoken.
When he thought, The pastor may be right. It must be God’s will for me to be sick, he became double-minded and the paralysis came back on him. 

Release Your Faith

During the winter months, heat is the thing you hope for, and gas is the substance-the raw material-of the heat you hope for.
The raw material for heating your home is connected to the heating unit at all times, but whether or not that raw material is used is another matter. You have to turn the dial of the thermostat. When you do, an impulse will be sent to the heart of the unit, a little valve will flip, the pilot light will ignite the gas, and heat will be produced.
The gas, the substance, is there all the time; but until the goal-setter signals the release, it is tied up. This is how some people are with their faith-they have it, but haven’t released it.
You must learn to release your faith. Turn the dial of your renewed mind and set it on the goal you want by speaking God’s Word concerning that particular area. It will then release the impulse to your heart and produce the desired results.
As you go about your daily activities, speak words of healing and prosperity. Even while you sleep, your heart is working to produce everything you need. Once the thermostat is set, you can rest assured that it will work day and night until it produces what you programmed into it. 
If you turn the thermostat to 60 degrees, then up to 90 degrees, then back down to 60 degrees, you will probably blow a fuse somewhere. The unit is not designed to function that way. You should set the thermostat at a certain temperature and leave it there.
