Faith: Get in the Word

Wednesday August 15, 2012

Heb. 11:1, 3, 6. Faith is evidence. The Bible tells us that both Jesus and Paul perceived or saw faith in someone to receive healing. There’s a difference between a miracle by the sovereign move of God (the gifts of the Spirit) and receiving a healing by faith. Faith is up to you. You can have faith to be healed, but if you don’t act on it, it won’t do you any good. Pray for specific things so you know when you’ve received. Faith pleases God. Do you believe that God is a rewarder to you? If you do, He will work for you. Pastor Dale shared how God rewarded him for not complaining and for leaving his family to serve Him by miraculously healing a man who was deformed from birth. How do you have faith? Rom. 10:17 tells us: by hearing and hearing by the Word. God’s words  are alive and are Spirit, and they are health (Prov. 4:20-23). You’ll sense a difference by spending 30 minutes a day focusing on and reading the Word. The Word feeds your spirit, and then your faith can be released. If you can’t be talked out of believing you’re saved, you should have that same kind of faith to believe you’re healed. Your faith needs to be developed, like working out at the gym develops your body. Get into the Word! Read it! Speak it!
