WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
DOES THE BIBLE SUPPORT THE LAW OF ATTRACTION?
Not only does the Bible tell us that our thinking determines whom and what we are it instructs us to change our thinking in order to change our lives. It further addresses the conditions necessary to receive our heart’s desires.
Movies and books like “The Secret” want you to believe that the Law of Attraction is something new to everyone. But the truth is the Law of Attraction has been known since biblical times. In fact, the Bible not only provides clear instructions on how to use the Law of Attraction it also shows instances when the Law of Attraction is in action.
One of the most basic principles in the Bible is “with God, all things are possible.” The Law of Attraction is centered in God. Yet, the Biblical perspective on the Law of Attraction is left
out by many teachers of the Law of Attraction.
God has a plan, a purpose and a reason for every single person on this planet.
God wants you to experience joy, love, happiness, and abundance in every aspect of your life. God even says in John 10:10, "I have come that they might have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”
God wants you to attain your dreams and goals. When you do that, you bring glory and honour to His name. That’s why the Bible teaches the Law of Attraction within its pages.
Did you know the Bible has over 200 verses related to the Law of Attraction?
In them, you’ll find out how to manifest abundance in all areas of your life: love, money, day-to-day life, work…
OUR THINKING SETS THE STAGE : Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Proverbs 23:7 emphasizes the phenomenal power of our thoughts, while Romans 12:2 instructs us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. As humans, we tend to believe that our thinking changes as the circumstances of our lives change, but according to the Bible, that simply isn’t so. Our lives transform as a result of changed thinking. This simple step lays the foundation for attaining our dreams and goals.
FAITH: A NECESSARY INGREDIENT Mark 9:23 “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Matthew 17:20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,” ¹…” Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Luke 17:6 If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this tree, be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it will obey you. In these verses, God adds one more requirement to receiving that which we desire “faith”. In Matthew 17:20 we learn that with faith anything is possible. Many Christians mistakenly interpret this as faith in God and add a long list of qualifiers to receiving anything from God, but that’s not what the Bible says. It clearly tells us that our faith (or belief) in the power to accomplish the seemingly impossible is the key to manifesting it in our lives.
RECEIVING BLESSINGS: Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. Luke 11:9 9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened”. Matthew :29 “According to your faith, be it unto you.”
Here, we find that in order to receive, we must ask, but asking alone is not enough. We must believe and have faith that what we ask for will be brought to pass. Many fail to ask assuming God knows their needs and will provide for them. Many ask and do not receive and rationalize that it is because “the answer is “no”, but that’s not why the Bible says we fail to receive. The Bible clearly outlines the conditions for “receiving” - renew our thinking, ask, believe and have faith that it will come to pass.
