Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and
hearing by the word of God.
Faith will always come. It comes by
hearing. The problem is, what are you hearing?
Are you listening to things that will bring
negative faith or positive faith.
What I mean by that is this. If I listen to the
Word of God and to people that will build my
faith in the Word of God, then I am receiving
"Positive Faith". If I am listening to doubt and
unbelief, it will result in doubting and
unbelief in Godís words and what they can do for
you, or "Negative Faith". So regardless how you
feel, you are always building faith for
something, whether positive or negative. I would
say, get the Word of God in you Spirit and start
building Faith in it.
Mark 11:22-23 And Jesus answered them saying
"Have Faith in God! For surely I say to you,
that whoever shall say to the mountain, Be
removed, and cast into the sea, and shall not
doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those
things which he says shall come to pass, he
shall have whatever he says."
The God kind of Faith comes to whoever will
believe. It is an act of our will. We can choose
to believe God, or believe a lie.
The word of
God says in
Romans 3:4 Let God be true, and every man a liar
So if I believe anything that is contrary to
what God has said, I am believing a lie.
2 Corithians 5:7 We walk by Faith, not by sight.
If we are moved by what we see or hear, we are
going to be swayed in our Faith. The sense realm
seems very real to us, but in reality, the
spirit realm is more real.
2 Corinthians 4: 18 While we look not at the
things which are seen, but at the things which
are not seen, for the things which are seen are
temporal, but the things which are not seen are
Even though it is hard not to, we cannot be
moved by what we see or feel. Sometimes that is
very difficult, especially when it comes to the
area of physical pain. But if we can believe
that God does not want us that way, it will
build faith to get out of it.
The devil always
works in the physical and mental realm. It is
something that is "Real" to us. If he can get
you focused on your pain, then you will not be
focused on the Word of God, that says "By His
stripes we are healed." The last thing he wants
you to know is that you donít have to suffer.
That is why he has spread this lie through the
church over the ages. He wants to keep you weak
But "Faith comes by hearing" and as
you "Hear" the Word of God on healing, you will
build your faith, and faith will move that
mountain of sickness out of your way. You just
have to choose to believe.
But it is so hard, people say. I donít have any
faith. Well the bible says in
Romans 12:3 As God has dealt to every man "the"
measure of Faith.
And if we would take that measure as Jesus said,
"as a grain of mustard seed"
and plant it, it will grow. He didnít say it was
the size of a grain of mustard seed, just like
it. Well a seed planted will grow and a mustard
seed is a tiny little seed, but will grow into a
huge tree, if it is watered and taken care of.
God used "the" measure of Faith to raise Jesus
from the dead
Eph 1:16-23, 2:1-8
16 do not cease to give thanks for you,
making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that
the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father
of glory, may give to you the spirit of
wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of
Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding[a]
being enlightened; that you may know what is
the hope of His calling, what are the riches
of the glory of His inheritance in the
saints, 19 and what is the exceeding
greatness of His power toward us who
believe, according to the working of His
mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ
when He raised Him from the dead and seated
Him at His right hand in the heavenly
places, 21 far above all principality and
power and might and dominion, and every name
that is named, not only in this age but also
in that which is to come.
22 And He put all things under His feet, and
gave Him to be head over all things to the
church, 23 which is His body, the fullness
of Him who fills all in all.
By Grace Through Faith
2 And you He made alive, who were dead in
trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once
walked according to the course of this
world, according to the prince of the power
of the air, the spirit who now works in the
sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we
all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of
our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the
flesh and of the mind, and were by nature
children of wrath, just as the others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of
His great love with which He loved us, 5
even when we were dead in trespasses, made
us alive together with Christ (by grace you
have been saved), 6 and raised us up
together, and made us sit together in the
heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in
the ages to come He might show the exceeding
riches of His grace in His kindness toward
us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have
been saved through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Our job is to develop our Faith to make it
"mountain moving faith". It takes time and work
to develop faith. We need to dedicate ourselves
to develop our faith. It wonít happen over night
and we canít get discouraged and give up. "Faith
Will Come!" We just need to be patient.
"Maybe if I pray long enough, God will give me
Faith!" Prayer does not cause Faith to work
(come), Faith causes prayer to work. God is not
going to give you faith just because you pray
for it. "Faith Comes By Hearing" Once we have
developed our Faith, then prayer will work.
Hebrews 12: 1-3 Hebrews 12:1-3
The Race of Faith
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded
by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay
aside every weight, and the sin which so
easily ensnares us, and let us run with
endurance the race that is set before us, 2
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher
of our faith, who for the joy that was set
before Him endured the cross, despising the
shame, and has sat down at the right hand of
the throne of God.
The Discipline of God
3 For consider Him who endured such
hostility from sinners against Himself, lest
you become weary and discouraged in your
Jesus is the author of Faith and will help you
develop and accomplish what your faith is sent
to do. But we must be patient and not give up.
He is our example. He endured the cross, knowing
that God was going to raise him up. If we
remember this, we wonít get weary of believing
and let Satan feed your mind negative thoughts.
If he endured the cross in faith, we can hang in
there for what we are believing for, no matter
how bad it looks, or feels.
v2 "For the "Joy" that was set before him, he
endured the cross, despising the shame."
What "Joy" was set before him? The joy of
knowing that he was doing it for you. That he is
now at the right hand of the Father, ever
interceding for you.
We are His "Joy". He endured in Faith, for us,
for you. How can we do any less? We must endure
in our Faith for him. We must be a witness to
the world of His power and love. When people see
what our Faith accomplished, it will bring glory
to God. We donít believe for selfish reasons,
but that the world will see what an awesome God
Hebrews 11:1 Now Faith is the substance of
things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet
I added the Ďyet", because we are so "See"
oriented. But if we know it is not "yet" seen,
that means it will be "seen" eventually. Faith
gives substance to our hopes and dreams. If we
will only believe, it will bring the "unseen",
into the "seen". The more you develop your
faith, the shorter the distance between the
"amen" and the "there it is!" If we can see
Faith the way God does, the "unseen" will be as
real as the "Seen".
Hebrews 11:3 Through Faith, we understand that
the worlds were framed by the word of God. So
that things which are seen, were not made of
things which are visible (unseen).
To God nothing is "unseen". It is all in the
eyes of Faith. If we can see it, we can believe
for it. If we donít see it, we will never have
Hebrews 11:6 For without faith it is impossible
to please him. For he that comes to God, must
believe that He is, and that He is the rewarder
of those that diligently seek him.
So do you want to please God? Do you want to
receive from Him? Diligently seek Him and His
word and "Faith Will Come!"
