Hill tells us that “FAITH is a state of mind which may be induced, or created, by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind, through the principle of autosuggestion.”


My biggest aha moment when I first read this chapter and still is, is that faith can be created. I think back on all the times in the past when I would come before God with an urgent request filled with fear ( Please God, I have to have this OR ) Fear is not belief. When I found out that I could bolster that belief by doing positive self talk filled with emotion everything changed. 


Hill also tells us “Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.” So our self talk creates our belief. The Bible tells us that whatever we ask for BELIEVE that we received it and it is ours but we have to have belief and not fear. I read the story recently about the centurion with a sick servant who had such great faith that he talked to Jesus about authority and told him not to even bother about coming personally, but just just say the word and he would be healed and he was. Jesus was amazed at such a great faith! If we are just praying a prayer and hoping to get lucky it’s pretty sure we wont although I have seen it happen. God must be having mercy on us when He does grant that kind of prayer.  We have to BELIEVE it will happen.


Again Hill tells us “The subconscious mind will transmute into its physical equivalent, by the most direct and practical media available, any order which is given to it in a state of BELIEF, or FAITH that the order will be carried out. We have to make sure that media is positive instead of negative because unfortunately it works the same on both!
