Always remember, church; God’s Words are true. I believe the right mental attitude towards any Divine promise of God will bring it to pass, if you can look at it in the right way. But remember, here’s been my standard in life. I have tried to do this. The first thing, I want to find out whether it’s the will of God or not. Then I know it’s God’s will.
The next thing, is my objective to it and my motive in doing it. Then if it’s the will of God, and my objective is right, and my motive is right, I have faith that it’ll be done. Because, first, it’s the will of God…and my objective is to glorify Him, and my motive is to give Him all the glory. See? So there’s no selfish motives about it.
If you have a selfish motive it won’t work. If your objective is to make money for yourself or something, why, you’ll never succeed. And then try to do something outside of the will of the Lord, then it won’t work to begin with.
So there is genuine faith, but you must come into the real channel of God to have that genuine faith. There’s human faith, then there’s faith of God. And you must have a godly faith to believe. Now, then to have godly faith, you must have the mind of Christ in you. Then that’s how God projects to you visions, revelations, and all these things comes by the mind of Christ being in you. You get it? “Let the mind that was in Christ be in you.”
