So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Rom 10:17)~
Faith isn’t something that we do or build up in ourselves. Rather, it’s something that God, the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2) does to us when we suspend our disbelief and place our trust in Him. People are always asking how they can have more faith. They believe that they somehow need to pump themselves up so that they have more faith. They believe that faith comes from their own doing. They are wrong.
Faith comes from trusting in what God says. When you have a close personal relationship with the Father, you have all the faith you need. It’s comes with the relationship. Without a close personal relationship with God, we don’t understand His plan, and our hearts are full of fear. When our fellowship with God becomes up close and personal, for the first time we understand His plan, and we put our faith in it. We know that if we follow His plan, nothing can happen to us until the plan has run its full course. Once we have faith in His plan, we no longer have any reason to fear.
Faith naturally flows into your heart when you trust God.. Faith is a product of trust, and fear is a product of distrust. When you trust God to take you through the storms of life, faith naturally wells up in your heart and your Spirit. You don’t need to muster your faith. It’s not something you do. Faith happens to you, because God puts it in your heart and mind when you trust Him.
Faith empowers God to do the things for you that you can’t do for yourself. You can’t pull yourself up by your own spiritual bootstraps. No matter how hard you try, you can’t be born spiritually without God’s help. Only God can make your spirit come alive.
Faith makes it possible for God to work in your life. It happens when you open your heart to God’s love and become one of His children. The power of God’s love flows through your life transforming your mind and healing damaged emotions. For the first time in your life, you dare to call God your Father, and you have a relationship with Him based on love. God has been waiting to perform a miracle in your life since the day you were born. Faith takes the handcuffs off God so the miracles can begin.
Hear the Word of God and have Faith!
