Are you a Person who tries and tries to get rid of all the “bad” things in your life — fear, doubt, unbelief — but continually struggles? It seems that the longer we’re Christians, the more we try to do everything right. And that’s a good thing but there’s an easier way. I call it the Displacement Principle.
For example, if you took a glass of water and dropped red food coloring into the glass, the water would turn red. So how do you get the water clear again? By adding more water until everything is clear and no more color.
That’s the way to get rid of the junk in your life — keep adding the Word day by day by day and you’ll get so full of the Word that there won’t be any room for the junky bad stuff — fear, doubt, and unbelief . Not only that, you’ll find yourself memorizing scriptures almost effortlessly!
When fear, doubt, or unbelief try to creep in, the Word that’s in you will come forth and drive out those negative thoughts. Now, it doesn’t happen overnight but diligence and perseverance will pay off and you’ll see success and victory. Winners never quit and quitters never win!
Then, on the other hand, if you do have some Word in your heart, but start getting into fear, doubt, and unbelief, that evil stuff will displace the Word and you’ll be in big trouble! You see, the Displacement Principle works both ways—positively and negatively.
Be a Word person and be a person of your word and you’ll see great things happen in your life!

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
