Faith is the noun from the Greek verb ‘pisteuo’, which is usually translated as ‘believe’. It means to be fully convinced of something – to know without any doubts. So if you have doubts, then you are not believing or exercising faith. Anything that does not give you the total assurance of God’s provision and answers to your prayer is not faith at all. It is simply very strong hope at the best. And if you think that living that way is going to bring results, then you are going to fall flat on your face.
No, living by faith is not something that only certain people do in special circumstances; it is the way we should all be living. In fact, it is the way the Lord has commanded us to live. “The just shall live by faith,” says the Word. Don’t you think it is time you learned what faith is and how to obtain it, so that you can start living by it?
He is the God who heals me!
Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world.
Father God, in your deepest love You so delighted in the sons of men, that though they continually committed disobedience against You, You sent your only Son, Jesus the Christ, from heaven to this earth, to be born in the likeness of the sons of men, in my likeness, a human being, so that the just penalty of my disobedience, my sinful nature, would rest upon Him, and His righteousness and life would abide in those who chose to believe in your Son. It is this great work of grace in the person of Jesus Christ that your Word has clearly revealed to me, and I trust in the Lord of creation who is now my Redeemer and Sustainer, and I know I am saved from eternal damnation by your grace through this faith that Your Son has given me, and I know that I will live forever with the You, the Living God. (John 3:16)
Let My way be yours. We are one, you and I. No one can take you out of my hand. You are engraved in it. Let My Word be in you like a fire with a forge rushing in. My Words create faith when you hear with your whole ear. I need you. Do not be afraid of their faces. Do not run away from praying for others. They are waiting on you to give them hope. Sometimes you are their only hope.
I walk in faith believing:
I am set on high above all nations of the earth.
All blessings come upon me and overtake me.
I am blessed in the city and in the field.
