Fake it until you make it

Matt 15:18 tells us that things that come out of a persons mouth come from the heart and defiles therm.

Mark 11:23 tells us that if we would just believe, that we could tell a mountain to go and throw its-self into the sea and it would be done for us. So, this verse tells me that God will do for us what we believe. It’s not us doing it, it’s just us speaking it forth.

I have heard both sides of whether people should fake it until they make it. One side says you should never fake it because you are lying if you pretend to be happy or healed or whatever. Then you have the other side saying definitely fake it until you make it! This is seeing into the spiritual instead of the natural. I lean more toward that side of the line. 

I have, many times, told people that I’m doing great or that I don’t need anything, when, in fact, that was not the case. But, if I started speaking everything that was not going right, I would be giving life to the lie of the enemy. So which is it? Fake it or speak the lie? Are we healed by the stripes for Jesus even if we don’t feel healed or are we getting our healing in heaven? Didn’t Jesus come to earth so that we might have life and life more abundant?

You can’t go by your feelings. You’re feelings will lead you straight to hell. Besides, I don’t necessarily believe that people are faking it, they are just calling forth those things that are not as though they are. Don’t we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us, who has resurrection power? Didn’t Jesus say that we would do greater works than he did? So, isn’t that Biblical? Romans 4:17 says that God gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.
