Heb 11: 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith means that you are confident in God’s Word, giving substance to what you hope for (Heb 11: 1): Faith is the evidence of the things that you can’t see: Faith is acting on what you believe. Whatever Scripture you believe if you don’t do it, then it’s not Faith. Faith is Always now; Jesus Said; I AM (not I WILL BE). Bible F is a spiritual Law. Bible Faith = Rom. 10, 17 – “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”. Faith Comes by hearing not by reading, so Faith Goes hand in hand with the proclaimed WORD. Be careful of what you hear, because it can affect your Faith in a negative or a positive way.
There’s ‘head’ Faith (which just mental accent), and ‘heart’ Faith – Mk; 11 23-24 – ‘heart’ Faith receives what WORD Says. Faith in God = Faith in WORD – Mental agreement (mental accent) = just agrees but doesn’t know how to get it. Don’t be like Thomas ‘Doubting’ (Jn; 20 26-27) but do Mk; 11, 23 & ‘shall have whatsoever he saith’. Thomas was using head Faith but be like Papa Abraham.
Anybody who is born-again gets the Same Measure of Faith. Not that I get a Measure and you get a different Measure, no we all start with the Same Measure. God is Not a Respecter of Persons so when you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, God Gave you the same Measure of Faith as Jesus and God Gave you the same Measure of Faith as the Disciples (2 Pet 1; 1 – ‘… that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:’. Your Faith must Grow: as you hear WORD it will stimulates your F in that area: as you use your Faith It Grows: but it is what you do with yours that will determine whether your Faith Becomes Weak, Strong etc
The walk of Faith, or Faith walk, (Rom 10: 8) – Means that, decide once and for all; (1) that God’s Word is absolutely Final Authority and First Place in your life, (2) that you will live the life of love (love is a Commandment from Jesus Himself), (3) to live the life of Faith to please The Father every day. Love and forgiveness are essential to life of Faith. Faith and Answered prayer are linked together. When we show love to each other, then we are showing God’s Love to the world, 1 Jn 4: 11-12
When it comes to things of God you have to walk by Faith. There are some things in existence somewhere that can only be contacted by my Faith. Just because I can’t see some things it doesn’t mean they don’t exist (ie: are in the spiritual world). Faith Deals with the invisible. Everything God has for you are already Done but you need Faith to Convert it from the unseen realm (spiritual world) into this seen realm. Faith Can Fix Anything
FAITH CONNECTS YOU TO THE ABILITY OF GOD, AMEN
