Is the Law of Attraction Biblical

Is the Law of Attraction Biblical?

If you actively practice the Law of Attraction you probably already understand the spiritual connection.  Being spiritual is not necessarily following a specific religion, and although all religions are different there are common ideals.  The question I am exploring is whether there is any foundation for the Law of Attraction in the bible?  Is the Law of Attraction biblical?

When The Secret film and books came out they took the world by storm repackaging a philosophy that has been available for hundreds of years, and with that the Law of Attraction movement was born.

The bible is full of references to the Law of Attraction, although not actually referred to it as the Law of Attraction but rather describes the principles and philosophies behind it. 

It is interesting that many people who believe in the Bible and God, dismiss the Law of Attraction as hocus pocus and some new age movement that is against their religious beliefs.  It does not have to be one or the other when you take a closer look at the biblical references that highlight the law of attraction philosophy.  So if you've been asking is the Law of Attraction biblical, the references below make an interesting read.

Bible References to the Law of Attraction Principles

Matthew 21:22 If You Believe

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen. If you believe, you will receive” whatever you ask in prayer."

Ask, Believe, Receive. The core principle of the Law of Attraction is having the belief and mindset that whatever you want you will receive.  It’s not that you will receive everything you want, it’s that you will receive everything that you truly believe.

Matthew 7:7 Ask and It Will Be Given

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened

Your life is only as good as your mindset.  Think about what you want and examine your beliefs on the subject.  You need to put energy  and action into what you think as your thoughts create your beliefs.  Become aware of what you are thinking and learn to change your thoughts.  Focus on how your thoughts make you feel.  Always reach for thoughts that make you feel good.  Open your heart to all that is possible and become aware of what you think.

Mark 11:24 Whatever you ask for in prayer

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Truly I tell you that if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and has no doubt in his heart but believes that it will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
And when you stand to pray, if you hold anything against another, forgive it, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your trespasses as well.”

Act As If.  The power of belief is fundamental.  You have to act as if you already have what you desire and the manifestation will follow.  You also have to be on the same vibrational frequency as you will attract only things and circumstances that match.  If you want to attract positive circumstances, then remove all negativity from your thoughts.  Refer to our article How to Act as If You Already Have What You Want.

Matthew 17:20 Because you have so little faith

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you".

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve.  Thoughts are cosmic orders waiting to happen.  If you keep thinking a thought it will become your belief.  Remember whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting.  Believe in who you really are.

Romans 12: Do Nor Be Conformed

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Open your mind to the possibilities of the Law of Attraction for all things are possible.  Change the way your look at things and the things you look at will change.

Proverbs 23: 7 Do not eat the bread of

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Do not eat the bread of a stingy man or crave his delicacies, for he is keeping track, inwardly counting the cost. “Eat and drink,” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.

Scripture Explanation: For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

You attract who you are.  Who you really are inside is what matters.  Your vibrational frequency equals your point of attraction.  If you are kind and genuine, you will attract kind and genuine circumstances.  If you are stingy and mean, that is what you will attract.  Attract what you want by being what you want.

Mark 9:23 Everything is possible for the one who believes

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

It often throws him into the fire or into the water, trying to kill him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” If You can? echoed Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes!” Immediately the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe; help my unbelief!"

You can have anything you want when you give up the belief that you can’t have it.  To see a positive change on the outside, you must first change your belief on the inside, for you get exactly what you believe.  So you attract what you believe you deserve.

John 11:40 Did I Not Tell You That If You Believed You Would See the Glory of God

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Take away the stone,” Jesus said. “Lord, by now he stinks,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man. “It has already been four days.” Jesus replied, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”  So they took away the stone. Then Jesus lifted His eyes upward and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me".

You will attract whatever you are a vibrational match to.  Your thoughts create your emotions which is what you vibrate.  This becomes your point of attraction.  Your perception of life is decided by your core beliefs.  If your life is not working out the way you wish it to, it is your core beliefs that need to change as you will only get what you believe.

Philippians 4-6 Do Not Be Anxious About Anything

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

Let your gentleness be apparent to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Adopt an attitude of gratitude.  The grateful heart is a magnet for miracles. It is not possible to be in a state of worry and gratitude at the same time.  Be positive and thankful and you will attract more to be thankful for.  Focus on lack and worry and that is what you will attract.

John 10:30 I and the Father are One

Biblical Quote

Law of Attraction Philosophy

My Father who has given them to Me is greater than all. No one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.” At this, the Jews again picked up stones to stone Him.

You are source energy.  The non-physical part of you projected part of it's consciousness into you.   Your soul is like a drop of water in the Ocean that is God.

The above biblical references are only a fraction of what can be found.  If you are interested in finding more, then an excellent resource for this is Bible Hub which provides links to similar verses. 

What is clear from the examples above, is that your prayers will be answered.  You can have anything you want as long as you believe.  You must firstly believe in who you really are and secondly, believe that what you desire has already manifested, although still unseen in our physical reality.  

Have you heard the expression Doubting Thomas?  This stems from what Jesus said to Thomas after the resurrection.  “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20: 24-29). 

The Law of Attraction is faith based.  Remove your doubts.  Don't be conflicted about believing in the Law of Attraction.  Don't doubt that whatever you truly believe in your heart and soul can manifest and don't doubt who you really are.  

Jesus said ” Now go and sin no more. I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.” (John 8.12)  

So what is Jesus really telling us here?  

We no longer have to sin against ourselves by denying who we really are.  He has told us over and over again who we really are and if we follow his truth, we will experience the wonderful things life has to offer.  

Jesus clearly stated in Psalms 82.6 “You are Gods.  You are all sons of the most high”. 

All we have to do is believe, live in gratitude and act in alignment with who we really are.

About the Author Holly Bennett

I am a firm believer in the Law of Attraction. The phrase Law of Attraction often seems to most people as an unrealistic, wishful thinking idea, not at all based in our reality. But to me, it's everything - it's lining up with the God source energy, believing God is there for you and having faith in his love for me.
