In pharmacological research, every test that is done on a group of individuals must also have a “control group”. Instead of getting the real test drug, they get a placebo – a pharmacologically inert drug. It’s simply a substance that resembles the actual drug in appearance, but is nothing more than water or something else of no medicinal value.After years of research, it was determined that when patients take a substance that they THINK will heal them, their symptoms often start to disappear.
This “placebo effect” has become well documented over time, and much research has been done on it. The phenomenal reality of this effect is that when patients BELIEVE they will get better, somehow they do.
Such is the power of faith.
The mechanics of this are unknown to me. Undoubtedly it involves complex neural processes, activating synapses and neurotransmitters that somehow awaken the divine nature of our soul embedded within every recess of our person, and which in turn creates a sanctifying effect on our physical bodies. But however it works, it works. You just have to believe.
The power of God is within us, we are His children, and as such, we can overcome any barrier placed before us through the effective and inarguable power of faith.
Through faith the earth was created. Through faith Moses was able to command the Dead Sea to part, allowing him to walk through on dry land. Through faith incredible events have transpired. And through faith, you can affect miracles within your own life.
While some have made a science out of understanding mechanism of faith, there is no science to implementing it within your own life. The steps are easy. There’s only one. Believe.
Picture what you want, and believe that it can happen. The power is within you, and it doesn’t take a pill to bring it out.
Believe that you can overcome. Believe that you can do better. Believe that you can be healed. Believe that you can learn. Believe that you can succeed. Believe that you can accomplish. Believe that you can be remarkable. Believe that you can be forgiven. Believe that you can endure. Believe that you can do anything. Believe in God. Believe in yourself.
