Identifying Limiting Thoughts & Beliefs
Confess Who You Are in Christ
I began studying quantum physics because I was curious. I became enthralled when I realized the similarities to how faith works and what Jesus taught his disciples about the principles of "mountain moving faith" and "the spoken word".
I have attempted to simplify and share with you some of what I have gleaned through my study as it applies to faith. If you are interested in studying quantum physics in detail, there are many books available written in laymen's language such as "Parallel Universes" by Fred Alan Wolf and "The Dancing Wu Li Masters - An Overview of the New Physics" by Gary Zukav.
In 1972, I first heard the teaching on faith and confession. It took faith in God's Word to believe that you can have what you say. I had never heard such a concept and had it not been for the fact that the principle was plainly written in the Bible, I would have considered it to be crazy.
However, there it was in red letters, spoken by Jesus no less!
"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." Mark 11:23
Looking at it from a surface level, it would seem a ridiculous statement that Jesus made. How is it possible that spoken words would send a mountain into the sea? For the past 27 years, it has required faith on my part to believe that words are that powerful. Recent study in the area of quantum physics, however, has convinced me that what Jesus spoke is absolute scientific fact!
As I studied the theories of quantum physics, I was reminded of a prophecy given by my father, author and teacher Charles Capps, "Some things which have required faith to believe will no longer require faith, for it will be proven to be scientific fact".
MUSTARD SEED AND QUANTUM PHYSICS
When Jesus said in Luke 17:6, "If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you would say", He was speaking of the smallest seed that could be seen in His time. If He were here today, He might say "If you had faith as an atom..." or even smaller, "If you had faith as a quark (which is a subatomic particle)". The point He was making was that small things that cannot be easily seen manifest themselves and affect things in this larger world where we live. Quantum physics is the study of things so small that we cannot see them, yet everything we see is made of these subatomic particles.
I remember, Hebrews 11:3 says: "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
The chocolate cake you ate yesterday was made from things which do not appear. The recipe calls for water (H2O). Before the hydrogen and oxygen combined into water, you could not see anything, yet the substance for water was there. Before God spoke and said "Let there be light", the substance for light was there. The sound vibration of His words caused the substance to manifest and appear.
WORDS ARE ENERGY
Words are energy and energy affects matter.
The energy of your microwave vibrates the water molecules and heats the water. The energy of electricity flows to your washing machine and powers the motor that spins the tub and cleans your clothes. So, we can rightfully say that energy affects matter. Your words are energy and they affect the matter in your life. When you speak the words, "This is the worst car I have ever had! You stupid piece of junk!" Those words are vibrations of energy that affect the atoms that make up that car. If you speak those words long enough, your car will obey you!
Scientists have performed experiments with atoms and their subatomic particles such as electrons. If you paid attention in school, you saw the diagram of an atom with the electron orbiting it like the earth orbits the sun.
The interesting thing is that scientists have discovered that the electron that is shown orbiting the nucleus is not always there in particle form. It exists in a wave state (like a cloud, every where at once) until someone looks at it. When the scientist observes it, it suddenly appears as a dot (particle). What we all want to know, is, "How does it know someone is looking at it?" It obviously is responding to the observer's interaction with it.
One of the difficulties in quantum physics is that the particles behave somewhat differently for each observer, which leads me to the question, "Does it behave according to what the scientist believes?" In any event, we can definitely conclude that Jesus was right when He taught that all matter responds to faith and words. The substance from which our world is made is influenced and manifested by words. The things that you desire are made up of atoms. They know what you believe, hear what you say and behave accordingly!
BELIEFS PRODUCE ENERGY
The thoughts and beliefs that you carry also produce an energy around you. Have you ever noticed that when you are angry, things go wrong, and people are insulting and angry with you? Your thoughts and beliefs produce an energy that people can perceive and react to. If you believe that no one likes you, then you emit that rejecting type of energy, and people will be driven away from you.
If you love people and care about them, they will feel that and be drawn to you. Have you ever been around someone who is pleasant and full of love? It is an energy you can actually feel. The energy of love is a powerful drawing card for good in your life. After all, God is Love.
When you believe that God loves you and wants you to prosper, then you change your words and beliefs about money. When financial challenges used to come my way, I would fall into fear and begin to say things like, "Well, now we won't be able to payoff the car, house, (or whatever)!" The fear and speaking of it is an energy that affects your checking account and stops financial freedom. Now, I have learned to think and believe and say, "Things always work out for me. Everything that I do prospers and I have abundance in Jesus' name."
God is not limited to the things that you and I see. There is an infinite supply of substance waiting to be manifest according to your beliefs and words!
THINGS OBEY WORDS
So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you." Luke 17:6
Being the daughter of Charles Capps, how many times do you think I have heard that "things obey words"? Many times, I can assure you! Well, bringing things down to their atomic level and learning that scientifically these particles respond to people has had a significant affect on my faith. When Jesus spoke to the fig tree and said, "No man eat fruit from thee hereafter forever", then that fig tree dried up from the atomic level because of His words. When He spoke to the winds and the waves, they obeyed Him. He was teaching us the undeniable Biblical principle that THINGS OBEY WORDS.
Jesus did not demonstrate this just to prove He was the Son of God. He demonstrated it and then told his disciples that they too can speak words of power. He wanted us to have the revelation that we are powerful spirit beings who can speak to the mountains in our life and they will obey us.
One of the reasons that some people have a hard time believing this principle is that sometimes it takes a long time for things to manifest from the unseen into this seen realm. It especially takes a long time when you dig up your seed every day to see if anything is happening yet! The seed will produce in its time if you leave it alone.
Do you believe that the words you speak come to pass? From this time on, listen to what you are saying to the things around you. Are you speaking curses to your checkbook? Are you telling it to dry up from the roots? How about your children? What are you telling them? They will obey your "prophecies" of failure and delinquency.
Things are responding to your words every day, so speak good things to all that surrounds your life. If you really believe Jesus' words, you "will monitor your thoughts and conversations, because you are the one giving substance to your world through words!
FREQUENCY AND VIBRATION
All "things" (matter) are made of atoms, including your children, your car, your computer, and your house. None of these "things" is solid, including your kitchen table even if it is made of oak. You may not see the space between the atoms in your table, but if you could see that small, you could also see movement. That's right! Your kitchen table is vibrating! Everything has a frequency of vibration. You vibrate, your car vibrates, and even the mountain behind your house vibrates. They all have a natural frequency. Go back to our example of the microwave heating your cup of water. How does it do that? The frequency vibration of microwaves is much higher than that of water. When those high frequency waves begin to bombard the water molecules, the electrons in the atoms are excited and move more and more rapidly (a higher vibration).
The result is that the substance (water), becomes hotter. The electrons have jumped to a higher orbit changing the behavior of your water into boiling.
When you introduce. cold temperature to water, it slows down the Vibrations' of the atomic structure to such a degree that the water becomes more solid and freezes.
All "things" respond to the vibration of energy. What kind of energy are you producing? Do you want your water boiling or frozen? Are you introducing faith-energized high frequency words to your children, finances, and health? Or do you introduce low frequency, negative words that freeze your circumstances into a continual series of crises?
You have a choice to use the energy of your words to change matter. The things in your life will obey your words. By speaking to objects such as your computer, "Stupid computer! It's going to crash!" you will find that it obeys you. It doesn't care whether crashing is a good thing or bad thing, it just obeys you. Or you can make another choice when speaking to "things". This is a good car. It always starts and runs well."
"But I would be lying. I have had problems with it" you say.
Yes, but do you want to reinforce that which exists or change it? By acknowledging the good things about the car, you create a positive belief about it which will ultimately change it to what you desire.
Imagine taking the highest frequency of all, the vibrating creative words of God, and
changing the vibration of those "things" you want changed!
STRANGE QUANTUM BEHAVIOR
What is it that you desire? The bigger question is, "What are you choosing?" The possibilities for your life are unlimited!
Quantum physics is a realm where the known laws of physics (Newtonian physics) no longer apply. In classic (Newtonian) physics you can repeat experiments using the same formulas and get the answers and responses you expect. The experiments are repeatable. You can expect that this is the way things work. For instance, when Isaac Newton saw the apple fall from the tree to the ground, he discovered a natural law, gravity. You can experiment with gravity all you like and it will work every time. What goes up must come down! If you jump off the roof of your house, you will always go down, not up. In the quantum, subatomic arena, there are only possibilities and probabilities. Things don't work like you think they should. Nothing is there until you look. All that exists is only an infinite number of possibilities. (Remember Jesus said, "All things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23)
Whereas gravity works whether anyone is present or not (a tree falls down, not up, even if no one observes it), subatomic particles are not there unless someone (an observer) looks for them. We can't really know what they are doing, or even if they exist when we are not looking. It is possible that they "are not".
I Corinthians 1:28 says that God has chosen the "things that are not to bring to nought things that are."
How can a thing not be? This scripture makes no sense at all until you bring it down to the atomic level. All things are made of atoms, which are made of subatomic particles. These particles are not really particles because they exist only in a state of possibilities until someone observes them at which point they appear as a thing (particle).
If that sounds crazy, read Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
When you hope for something, where does it exist?
Only in your mind and heart. It "is not", it is only a possibility.
"Through faith we understand the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Hebrews 11:3
The Concordant Literal New Testament says, "that what is being observed has not come out of what is appearing." (what is visible) This is a statement that could have been made by a physicist!
What makes it appear? You, the observer, with faith that gives substance to your hopes and dreams.
Faith observes that which "is not", and gives it substance so that it may appear and become visible. The key to manifesting matter, is to interact with that which "is not" so that it becomes what you hope for.
Your expectations and beliefs (or what you observe) is of primary importance. If you observe and expect failure, sickness or disaster, that is exactly what will manifest.
There are an infinite number of possibilities that exist for your life. You alone have the power to choose which possibility becomes reality in your life. Choose wisely.
FAITH LANGUAGE AND QUANTUM THEORY
The way things work in quantum theory is so weird and bizarre that we really don't have the language to describe it. This is one of the reasons that most people have no interest in quantum physics. It simply isn't understandable to most people.
If I could show you an example of subatomic behavior in this macro world where we live, you would be able to grasp the idea. But sometimes the quantum micro world seems upside down and backwards from what we observe everyday in the natural (macro) world.
As I studied quantum physics, it sounded very familiar to me. It sounded like "faith language".
All I had been taught over the years about faith and confession suddenly sounded scientifically possible. All the things I accepted on faith because Jesus taught them, now sounded as if Jesus was speaking the language of quantum principles. After all, just how bizarre is it to say that words can move mountains?
In order to believe the words of Jesus, it is necessary to let go of old ideas and open yourself to new ones. You let go of your beliefs in the way you think things work and accept a new set of beliefs. The principles of faith and confession that Jesus taught seem like nonsense when seen from a worldly point of view, but Jesus said that we are not of this world. We are in the world, but not of it (John 17:16). We operate in a different set of laws which Jesus called the laws of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is the realm where God lives.
DIFFERENT REALM, DIFFERENT RULES
The laws of the kingdom of God defy explanation. That is because they do not operate strictly in the material, physical level, but on a higher overriding principle that is the basis of creation. Genesis chapter 1 tells us that God spoke the unseen into existence by His Word.
Words are unseen vibrations that obviously have an effect on manifesting or changing matter.
You may have already experienced these laws that defy explanation. Have you ever planted a financial seed in faith? How is it possible that a person can give away $10.00 and be $100.00 or $1000.00 richer? (Luke 6:38). There is no mathematical explanation as to how this principle works. Giving away dollar bills does not make them multiply. And if it did, it would multiply in the receiver's hand not the giver's hand. Yet this is exactly how Jesus taught that the principles of the kingdom of God operated.
The classic laws of physics, specifically gravity says that a 180 pound man cannot walk on top of a surface of water without sinking. So Jesus must have known about a law that supersedes the law of gravity.
Current medical science says that lepers and cripples cannot be healed and restored to perfect health in seconds or minutes. It takes time. Did Jesus bypass time? .
Scientists and even small children know that solid matter cannot pass through walls. Jesus assumed a form that walked through a wall. Did he transform his physical matter into energy that passes through matter like radio waves through the walls of your home?
These behaviors were so strange that many people choose to believe that they did not happen, because it is not possible in the physical, macro world where we live.
Physical laws we take for granted were superseded by the person of Jesus Christ and can be superseded by those who accept the principles of the kingdom of God. "...He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" John 14:12.
By comparing quantum physics with spiritual laws, I want to present you a different way of thinking, and by doing so open a whole new avenue and understanding of the faith that moves mountains.
Faith is an unseen energy force. It is not matter, but it creates matter and actually becomes matter. The faith that you use to call forth the manifestation of healing or finances changes form when the manifestation takes place. That is because faith-energized words converts energy to matter. Words are the catalyst that turn the substance of faith into physical manifestation. Faith is the raw material from which all matter is made. Hebrews 11:1 says that "faith is the substance..." It is the invisible substance from which your physical world was and is created.
God used faith-substance and word-energy to create the universe. He spoke and the vibration (sound) of his words released the substance that became the stars and planets.
Words are the carrier of substance. They carry the substance to wherever it is directed. If you direct your faith toward your bank account with the intention of filling it to overflowing, then your word-energy vibrations causes your bank account to become a magnet for the substance of money. Money (substance) will begin to come to you through a variety of different places.
If you direct your faith to the healing of your body, then your words carry healing energy to the cellular level of your body. On the vibrations of your words, faith-substance is carried to your body where it becomes healing-substance.
Just as God created the universe by faith substance and word-energy,· you create your own universe by your faith and your words. If you don't like what you have created, you can change it!
EVERYTHNG IS CONNECTED
In quantum mechanics, the observation of something changes it. You can never really be sure if it even existed before you looked. Because you looked, you actually interfered with whatever was before you looked. If this sounds confusing, it really isn't. It just means that we affect everything around us just by how we see it or what we believe. Jesus said to the centurion in Matthew chapter 8, "...as you have believed, so be it done unto thee." It's a good thing he believed his servant was healed! Our perceptions return to us exactly what we perceive.
How you interact with this quantum field of possibilities, the unseen realm from which all is created, determines what manifests in your life. We have been given an empty slate and Jesus said it is up to us what we choose to put on It (Mark 11:23-24, Matthew 9:23).
With the disciples, Jesus used farming to illustrate His point. Whatever you sow, that you will reap. If you sow corn, you reap corn. However if you choose to sow weeds, you will reap weeds.
We have been programmed in this world to sow the wrong kind of seed and then wonder what happened. Everything has become separate and disconnected, but quantum physics brings us again to the reality that Jesus taught that all things are interconnected. God is not up in heaven sitting on His throne sowing seeds and making choices for us that may be bad or good!
We are sowing our own seeds and making our own choices for good or evil.
"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live." Deuteronomy 30:19
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue." Proverbs 18:21
We make the choices. What you do and believe affects everyone and everything around you. You actually create your own reality. Your perception of life becomes your life.
That is why it is so important to change your perceptions, beliefs and expectations so that they agree with the abundant life that has been provided. Are you perceiving and believing in the blessings or curses?
IDENTIFYING LIMITING THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS
In order to change your circumstances or any "thing" in your life, you first go to the controlling beliefs in your life. Your heart and your words must agree to produce the kind of mountain moving words Jesus said we could have.
"...but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass..." Mark 11:23
Do you sincerely hold the belief that your words can change, demolish, or heal that which exists, and create that which does not exist?
If you don't believe that you are as powerful as Jesus said, then why not? Is it because you feel unworthy, less than, or inferior? Where did this belief come from? Your schoolmates, parents, siblings?
If you hold negative thoughts and beliefs, then you must discover them and change your beliefs. Until you uncover the hidden beliefs that control your life, you will not be able to operate in the kind of power Jesus said we have.
What you believe in your heart is the controlling force of your life. You are either controlled by faith or fear.
It's fairly easy to identify negative, limiting thoughts and beliefs.
+ They bring fear.
+They make you feel bad.
+ They manifest in your life as hopelessness, and expectations of sickness, poverty, failure and defeat.
+ They make you feel stuck.
You can reprogram your beliefs by speaking energizing, life-giving words of power. Speak only what' agrees with who Christ said you are and you can eliminate the old belief system that has dominated you.
Remember, what is seen is created from what is unseen. Your outward circumstances are a reflection of your beliefs. Before you can change circumstances, you must change yourself. To speak to the mountain and have it removed, you must believe those things you say will come to pass. Hearing yourself speak (confess) what God has said about you, puts faith in your heart and changes your perceptions and interactions with the world around you.
CONFESS WHO You ARE IN CHRIST
These confessions when spoken aloud will cause the energy of faith to rise to new levels in your heart.
You will be quickened to operate in a higher level of faith and expectation.
I am strong in the Lord and the power of His might. I draw my strength from Him, that strength which His boundless might provides. (Ephesians 6:10.)
I am strengthened with all might according to his glorious power. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Colossians 1:11, Philippians 4:13.)
The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me and quickens my mortal body. (Romans 8:11.)
The law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:2.)
I am complete in Christ and the fullness of God dwells in me. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge dwell in me through Christ Jesus. (Colossians 2:3, 9-10.)
Wisdom in my heart is like water in a deep well, I am a person of understanding and I draw it out. (Proverbs 20:5 Amp.)
I have perfect knowledge of every circumstance and situation in life for the Spirit of Truth dwells in me. John 16:13.)
I am delivered from the power of darkness. I know the truth and the truth has set me free. (John 8:32.)
Jesus said that whatever I bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven. I now loose the blessings of God to flow into my life. I expect to be overtaken by goodness. (Matthew 18:18.)
The Holy Spirit teaches me all things and brings all things to my memory. I know and remember who I am. I now use my words and my faith to manifest God's highest and best for me! (John 14:6.)
By taking these scriptures and the principles of God's Word, you can access the unlimited possibilities for your life. You are giving substance to your world through words!
