God's Word is to be the first & final authority in your life every day.
2 Cor 5:7 we walk by faith and not by sight.
Romans 14:23...whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Ephesians 2:10 NLT For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.
Amplified Bible says living the good life He pre-arranged and made ready for us to live.
In verse 12 of Ephesians 2 it says we were separated from Christ, strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
So when you face a difficult situation, you should go directly to The Word of God first and see what God says about your problem. You will see as you read God's Word aloud, that faith will begin to come back into your heart.
When you are out in the world without God, your faith level has dropped away, you are not close to or recognising the covenants of promise God has put in place for you. Then as you HEAR the Word, faith comes in [Rom 10:17 Faith cometh by hearing God's Word] and as your faith grows again, you can believe strongly and confess what God says about the situation, not what the circumstances are saying to you.
1 John 5:14 Amplified Bible And this is the confidence, the assurance, the privilege of boldness we have in Him; we are sure that if we ask anything, make any request, according to His will in agreement with His own plan, He listens to and hears us.
v15 And since we positively know He listens to us in whatever we ask, we know with settled and absolute knowledge that we have granted us as our PRESENT possessions the requests we have made of Him.
You have to realise God's Word is God's will. If you are doing what The Word says, you are doing God's will.
