Faith is not a product of reason, it is the
product of the recreated spirit.
Whenever the scribes and Pharisees "reasoned"
between themselves, they lost out on what God
had for them.
Mark 11: 27-33 Verse 31-33 And they reasoned
among themselves, saying, If we say "from
heaven" he will say "Why then did you not
But if we say, "From Men" they feared the
people, for all counted John to have been a
prophet indeed. So they answered and said to
Jesus, "We do not know" and Jesus answered and
said to them "Neither will I tell you by what
authority I do these things."
If they had accepted Jesus for who he was and
believed what he said and just accepted that
John was from God, they would have received a
revelation from God. But they talked themselves
out of it.
But when we reason with the Lord that is a
Isaiah 1:18 Come let us reason together says the
He will show us the word and explain it to us,
and show us in our spirits what he wants us to
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your
heart and lean not on your own understanding, in
all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall
direct your paths.
God knows everything. Trusting him with your
life should be the easiest thing you could do.
But unfortunately, sometimes, we trust our own
understanding more than we do his and we mess
As we read in Mark 11, Faith can move mountains.
It is a powerful force and we need to learn how
to develop it in our lives. We do this by doing
Put the Word first place in your life. Make it
Psalm 119:1 Your word have I hid in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
Psalm 119: I delight myself in your laws and I
will not forget your Word.
Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers and the flower
fades away, but the word of our God shall stand
Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goes forth
from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please, and shall
prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
If we believe that the word of God is final
authority in every area of our lives, we will
not listen to what the enemy says, because we
know what God says. If God said it, that settles
it. Whether we believe it or not, His word is
always right. We just need to put it into
practice in our lives.
Meditate in the Word
Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart
from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it
day and night, that you may observe to do
according to all that is written in it. For then
you will make your way prosperous and then you
will have good success.
Psalms 1:2-3 But his delight is in the law of
the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and
night. He shall be like a tree, planted by the
rivers of water, that brings forth itís fruit in
itís season. Whose leaf also shall not wither
and whatever he does shall prosper.
1 Timothy 4:15 Meditate on these things; give
yourself entirely to them, that your profiting
may be evident to all.
As we meditate in the Word it will become a
reality in our lives. Our faith will be built
and we will trust God and what He says.
Act on the Word
James 1:22-25 But be doers of the word, and not
hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if a man
is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is
like a man observing his natural face in a
mirror. For he observes himself, goes away and
immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But
he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and
continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer
but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed
in what he does.
Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary while
doing good, for in due season we shall reap if
we do not lose heart.
There is an expression "Talk is cheap!" Well
that is why we need to put actions to our faith.
God is looking for people that are "Acting" on
His word, not just quoting it. Anyone can quote
scriptures, but not everyone believes they are
real and alive and for us today. There are many
churches that read scriptures and there is no
life to it, because, they donít really believe
what they are reading. Acting on the Word makes
it come alive to you.
Pray in the Spirit
1 Cor. 14:4 He who speaks in tongues edifies
Jude 20 But you beloved, building yourselves up
on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy
Our prayer language is perfect prayers unto God.
We canít mess it up. It is like a battery
charger to our Spirit. We plug into God and he
fills us up with a Faith charge.
So we see through all of these scriptures that
in order to get the "Force of Faith" to move in
our lives, we need Godís word in our Spirit in
We need to meditate in it day and night. We need
to act on it in every area of our lives, and we
need to charge up by praying in the Spirit.
