There have been several movies about faith that have been shown to thousands of people around the world. One of them is The Jesus Film. Another is a movie called The Secret. This is a quote from the book The Secret:
“As the film swept the world, stories of miracles began to flood in: people wrote about healing from chronic pain, depression, and disease; walking for the first time after an accident; even recovering from a deathbed. We have received thousands of accounts of the Secret being used to bring about large sums of money and unexpected checks in the mail. People have used The Secret to manifest their perfect homes, life partners, cars, jobs and promotions, with many accounts of businesses being transformed within days of applying The Secret. There have been heart-warming stories of stressed relationships involving children being restored to harmony.”
So my question to you, dear reader is, do you believe in miracles? I certainly do because I have seen so many in my lifetime. When I was a missionary to China I began to spend a lot of time praying and I saw many amazing answers to prayer. Actually many of the miracles I saw and heard about happened in the USA.
Another question, do you believe that a movie or book like The Secret, which expands on Jesus’ teaching of faith, can really inspire miracles? This movie is free to watch on youtube.com. Please leave a comment. Let’s get a discussion going here.
Many people pray and don’t get answers, so they feel Jesus was not accurate when he taught about prayer, or that they are misunderstanding what Jesus said about prayer. But what if the problem is that they have not been trained to have strong faith? Over two dozen times Jesus said the key to answered prayer is faith.
John 14:14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
John 15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
John 16:23 Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
Remember, it took three years of full time study with Jesus for the apostles to learn faith well enough to perform miracles. Don’t expect to suddenly have mountain moving faith. It takes time. But never give up. Keep building your faith. https://bradstanton.com/2013/06/03/faith-takes-years-to-develop-but-it-is-worth-it/
I wrote a book about prayer. In it I include a number of things you can do to strengthen your faith, including memorizing Bible verses about faith. Another is an acrostic FAITH
F Find a Bible verse that addresses what you are praying for. This is easier to do than it seems. For example, you can do a word search in Biblegateway.com to find a verse.
A Ask God in faith
I Imagine you already have the thing you asked for. This is amazing, it really strengthens faith
T Thank God for it as if you already have it. Don’t beg, that shows a lack of faith. Once you place your order in a restaurant you don’t keep asking for it do you?
H Hold on and be happy while you wait for the answer to your prayer.
