Just a few years ago, I started a secretarial position. This was a blessing for me, as so many people are struggling in getting a steady income these days. After a full year of working as a substitute I finally was offered a permanent position with a 5 dollar hourly raise, which is something I could really be thankful for, despite it only being a part time job.
I was told that as soon as I had accepted the job, I would be able to actually start applying for full time positions. And, that is exactly what I did! I probably applied for about 7 or 8 different openings beginning at the end of that August. Without discouragement, I prayed about what I wanted, and thought positive about the situation every day. I claimed to anyone who asked, “I WILL BE in a full time position BEFORE Christmas.” And, on October 13th – a little less than 2 months from first starting my permanent position, I finally got the news that I was highest bidder on one of those jobs.
Which leads me to my question: Can man speak things into existence supernaturally?
If you were to listen to popular Word of Faith & prosperity Preachers like Joel Olsteen, Creflo Dollar, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and the like, they would probably say of course. If you read books like “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy, it would say that you definitely speak whatever your heart desires into existence, and you can learn how, starting today. Let me be clear, I am not referring to people speaking of the power of prayer or even questioning the Power of the Word of God. I am asking about the idea of men and women being able to literally talk about something that they desire to happen – in this case, wealth and health, and have it actually come into fruition by speaking a mere number of words.
Of course, the answer to this lies in what you choose to believe.
If you’re a wiccan, a soothsayer, or follow magic spirituality like hoodoo, voodoo, santeria and the like – you may be inclined to believe that things like this very well can and do happen with the help of your ancestors, different spirits and certain gods.
If you’re Christian, you may have noticed that Word of Faith teaching has become quite prominent among some of the most popular evangelical preachers today, and yet it’s theology in the “force of faith” and the idea that we all all “little gods” are clearly unbiblical when tested against scripture.
I’m interested in knowing what do you think? In my case, I believe that whatever I’m blessed with is not because I simply spoke it up.
