Do you have big faith in God–but you struggle sometimes because doubters and unbelievers come against you and your faith? If so, the Lord led me to write this Believer’s Manifesto for YOU.
Beloved, if you are struggling today: please. Read this Believer’s Manifesto. Confess it out loud. Print it off and keep it with you. Plaster it on your mirrors, your walls, and in your car. Read it to yourself daily, and continue believing God no matter what other people think of your faith!
Speak this Believer’s Manifesto over yourself today:
“In the name of Jesus, I decree and declare that I am a believing believer. If God said it, I choose to believe it.
I believe that God is not limited. He can do all things He said He would do, and He can do them all at once.
I choose not to limit God. My resources are limited; my power is limited; my strength is limited. But God’s are not. I will not limit the Holy One of Israel (Psalm 78:41).
I believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God.
God is not a man, that He should lie. He is not the son of man, that He should repent. What He has said, He will do. What He has spoken, He will make good (Numbers 23:19).
I believe that “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God [both sons and daughters of God] may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV, brackets added by me).
I believe that God is good, and that He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants (Psalm 35:27).
Therefore, I believe God’s Word when it tells me that God has all the wealth in the universe. The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains belongs to Him.
I believe that God is omnipotent. All power belongs to Him. He is an unlimited and undiminishing Fountain and Source of power and strength.
I believe that all victory belongs to God. There is victory in the camp of the Lord, never defeat of any kind.
Do you need boundaries?

I am a believing believer. I believe God’s Word that everything God promises is meant for me.
All His promises are “Yes” and “Amen.” This means they are done for me already if I will only believe.
Jesus said over and over, “According to your faith be it unto you.” So I choose to have big faith. In fact, I choose to embrace and maintain wild, radical faith in what God says.
People may laugh at my faith, but God sits in His heavens and laughs at His enemies. He will have the last word over those who laugh at me for believing my Father.
Doubters and haters may come against my faith with their unbelief and discouragement.
Doubters, haters, unbelievers may try to derail my faith because they have no faith of their own. But, God says, “Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:38 NKJV). I will not back down or draw back from believing God and His Word.
People may try to get me to agree with their doubt and unbelief. But, God says, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23 NKJV). So I will continue to confess my wild, radical faith–and I will not be swayed, convinced, or derailed by the doubt and unbelief of those who have no faith in God.
Sometimes discouragement may test my faith, but God says that “whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23b). Therefore, I choose not give in to discouragement or self-pity. I choose to stand in faith and believe God, in order to keep from sinning against Him.
I am a believing believer. I choose to dream big and do great exploits on this earth.
Faith without works is dead (James 2:26), so I choose to do great works by my faith. Others may not believe these greater works are possible, but Jesus promised I would do greater works than even He did on this earth during His earthly ministry (John 14:12).
My faith works together with my works, and by my works my faith is made perfect (James 2:22). I know my God, and I am strong; and I do great exploits (Daniel 11:32b).
I submit to God. I resist the devil, and the devil flees from me. I draw near to God, and God draws near to me.
I ask God in the name of Jesus for whatever I need, want, and desire, for Jesus said, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (John 14:14 NKJV). And Jesus answers my prayer, for He said He would.
I choose to stand in faith, without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
I do not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season I will reap, for I do not faint (Galatians 6:9). I choose to strengthen the hands that hang down, and make firm the feeble knees, that what is lame may not be dislocated, but may rather be healed (Hebrews 12:12).
I choose to persevere in faith, no matter how long it takes for God’s promises to be manifest in my life.
I persevere because He who promised is faithful (Hebrews 10:23). I persevere because those who doubt will not receive anything from the Lord (James 1:5-8). And I persevere because Jesus suffered far more than I ever will, and He is worthy of my faith-filled, humble trust and service (Hebrews 12:4). In patience I possess my soul (Luke 21:19).
I consider Jesus, who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself. I do this lest I become weary and discouraged in my soul (Hebrews 12:3). Even if I am burdened “above measure, above strength,” so that I despair even of life, I trust not in myself but in God who raises the dead (2 Corinthians 1:8-9).
I am a believing believer. I choose to stand strong and firm in faith.
I have faith in God, and I have the faith OF God. And whatever I believe God for, I receive, for I am a believing believer–and my faith is in the Solid Rock, the Rock of Ages, Jesus Christ Himself.”
