Last teaching as you might recall we started a new series, on new beginnings where we covered Praying with Believing. Today we’ll cover this topic in more detail, where we’ll look at the Law of Believing. We call it a law because, God guarantees it. Just like gravity it is reliable and works all the time.

Verse Listing and Notes
Mark 9:14-27 If you can believe.
Matt. 15:22-28 Canaanite woman believed for daughter.
Luke 4:33-36 Man with unclean spirit in synagogue.
Acts 9:36-42 Peter prayed, Dorcas raised.
Two types of believing:
Mat. 9:22 Woman with issue of blood healed.
Job 3:25 Fear brought disaster. Later, believing restored all.
Mark 11:23-24 Do not doubt in heart.
(Mat. 12:34 Out of the abundance of the heart.)
Romans 8:35-39 Persuaded – confession (practical key).
Heb. 4:2 Mixed with believing.
II Cor. 10:3-5 Every thought to the obedience of Christ – Synchronized with God’s Word.
What we confess with our mouths will eventually make it into our hearts. What we believe in our hearts determines what we receive in our daily living. We need to synchronize our words, our actions, and our thoughts with God’s Word in order to walk in the deliverance to which God has called us
For the last couple of years, we’ve focused on practical living. We’ll still focus on what is practical and be living, but at least for the next few months we’ll focus on New Beginnings. It has been a few years since we covered this, so we’ll look at an important concept — that of prayer with believing. Since God doesn’t control our lives and won’t overcome our freedom of will, we need to pray and ask God for help if we want Him to help us. And when we pray to God, we need to actually believe that He will actually help us — we need to pray with believing.
