Faith: Based On Your Relationship with the Father

Wednesday August 1, 2012

What is faith? (Heb. 11:1, 2) It’s a consistent heartfelt conviction, a truth that you can’t be talked out of, even to the point of death. Although it’s based on knowledge, it’s more than that. There’s a caution: we can make “the Word” (written Word) to be an idol, if we replace it for God. You can have lots of knowledge of God and still not have faith in Him. The most important facet of faith is your personal intimate relationship with God, Jesus, and His Holy Spirit. Mark 11:23 and 24 work when we are in relationship and fellowship with Jesus. You need both the knowledge of the Word and relationship with God. Know the Father; spend time with Him in prayer; pray in the Spirit; read the Bible; treat Him with respect; talk to Him and listen to Him. You receive based on your faith and on your relationship with Him.
