Faith is a Promise Enabler!

The enemy of your soul cannot kill your promises from God, but he can attempt to get you to not engage with those promises!

I have been given literally hundreds of Prophetic Words from the Lord over the last 40 years. Many of those Words, I have been given, I connected with by Faith and have trusted that the Holy Spirit was going to cause them to manifest no matter what the circumstances were surrounding them.

If I haven’t learned anything else during that 40 years, the main thing that I have learned is that UNBELIEF IS A PROMISE DISABLER. The Unbelief doesn’t kill the Promise itself, but it will Disable our ability to engage with that Promise.

“And to whom did He swear that they should not enter His rest, but to those who disobeyed [who had not listened to His word and who refused to be compliant or be persuaded]? So we see that they were not able to enter [into His rest], because of their unwillingness to adhere to and trust in and rely on God [UNBELIEF HAD SHUT THEM OUT].” Hebrews 3:18-19

“And [so] the Scripture was fulfilled that says, ABRAHAM BELIEVED IN (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on) GOD, and this was accounted to him as righteousness (as conformity to God’s will in thought and deed), and he was called God’s friend.” James 2:23

The enemy of your soul cannot kill your Promises from God, but he can attempt to get you to not engage with those Promises! For every Prophetic Word, you receive from God is a Promise from Him, which when I engage with them by faith, they begin to manifest upon my behalf.

God doesn’t make empty Promises, because every Word that Proceeds from His Mouth is Alive and Full of Power!!!

“FOR THE WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IS ALIVE AND FULL OF POWER; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow, exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12

A Living Word from the Lord cannot be killed by the enemy, but in order for us to partake in it, we must believe that Word and Engage with it by Faith! While I have talked to countless people about Promises that they’ve been given, but never received, almost every one of them admitted that THEY JUST COULDN’T SEE HOW GOD WAS GOING TO BRING THOSE THINGS TO PASS FOR THEM.

Many of us try to Engage with our brains, but not with our hearts:

“AND YOU HAVE NOT HIS WORD LIVING IN YOUR HEARTS, BECAUSE YOU DO NOT BELIEVE and adhere to and trust in and rely on Him Whom He has sent. [That is why you do not keep His message living in you, because you do not believe in the Messenger Whom He has sent.]” John 5:38


Whatever you truly believe in your heart will eventually come out of your mouth, because out of the abundance of your heart your mouth speaks (Luke 6:45).

Ask yourself, “What is in operation in my heart? Is it Faith in the Promises that God has spoken over my life or is it that I just cannot see how those things are going to come to pass?”

If you’re relying upon the Hope that you’re believing to see from your mind, then you need to transfer that Hope into the Substance of Faith, as it’s Written upon the Tablet of your heart by the Holy Spirit! Meditate upon the Word of God! Spend quality time with the Holy Spirit and Allow that Word of God to renew your mind. 

As you do these things it’ll cause you to engage with what the Lord has told you through Prophecy and other sources and you’ll begin to see in ways you haven’t before. It’s time to Stop Engaging with the Unbelief and allow Faith to Enable you and the Promises God Has Given You!
