Blog 16 ON FAITH

       Faith is a life style.  We are to live every day by faith.  Only faith pleases God because He has already accomplished everything through Christ (Hebrews 11:6).  Not blind faith—our faith is based on God’s word.  He tells us all that we need to know in His word.  It is His will for everyone.  A person is set free when he comes to the knowledge of the truth through the word of God by the Holy Spirit.
      There is no getting away from the word faith because everything that is not of faith is sin.( Romans 14:23)  The just shall live by faith it reads in Romans 10:38.
        God tells us not to have an evil heart of unbelief like those in the wilderness for forty years.  God proved himself over and over to the children of Israel.  He brought them out of the bondage of Egypt, and He brought them through the Red Sea when Pharaoh was pursuing them. He fed them with Manna in the wilderness.  He supplied all their needs, and all they did was to complain, wishing they could go back to Egypt to their fleshpots.  They had forgotten their plight in Egypt: Making bricks without straw, Working sunup to sundown with no pay year after year.  How soon did they forget all their hard times!  
         God is a good God; and He has completed everything for His children through Jesus at the cross  Actually, He did it for everyone, but not everyone will receive the gift. God is not a man that can lie.  We can believe Him.  The Bible says in Psalms 84:11, “No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly”  ( those who are born again of God’s Spirit )  
         Faith doesn’t look at the physical realm. The Bible is a spiritual book, and the scripters are supernatural. As a person reads and studies them, they are renewing their mind,and growing their faith to believe God  He gives all His children the measure of faith.( Romans 12:3)  We all start off with the  same scoop of faith; but it is up to us to develop it.  Faith is not a religion. It is the belief in God, and in His word regardless of the circumstances, or consequences.  “Now faith is,the sudstance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Substance equals assurance. When one prays in faith, and believes in his heart that what he prays for will come to pass; he has the assurance that he will receive it.  He must pray according to God’s word. ( which is His will )  We have confidence that He hears us if we pray according to His will. ( 1 John 5:14,15 )  Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ( Romans 10:17 )  
        Faith uses the word of God, and speaks to situations, and to obstacles.  We believe we receive when we pray. ( Mark 11:24 )  We know there is power in God’s word to bring to pass what has been spoken, and, or prayed.  We believe we receive when we pray, not when we see it come to pass.  In other words, one does not wait for it to come to pass before he believes.  It will never come because if it has to be seen first before one believes; it is not faith.  
        If you abide in Me, and my word abides in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you’. ( John 15:7 ) Abide means that God’s word lives in you.( remains in you & is attached to you )  
        Faith requires a corresponding action. We act on our faith.  We act like the Bible is true.  (because it is )  After a situation has been spoken to, it does not matter what it looks like in the natural, physical realm.  Having symptons doesn’t mean you aren’t healed.  When you have prayed the word, just thank God and praise Him.  Jesus said in Mark 11:23, ” we could speak to the mountain, and believe in our hearts, and not doubt, we could have what we say.” ( I am paraphrasing) It does not matter what it looks like in the physical. You know you have received because God says you have. In fact, we were healed at the cross.  Saved and healed are the same in the original Greek.  When Jesus saved us, he also healed us all.
        Satan,the enemy will try to steal the word from you.  He will even try to bring more symptoms  on to make you believe you did not receive. You have to put faith in God’s word. He sees you already healed, and set free from the thing that was prayed for.  It just does not matter what it looks like.  Faith looks at the unseen realm.  Praise God every day and thank Him, while continuing to stand on the word.  One has to hang on to the word “like a bull dog with a bone”.  
        There is no faith without the knowledge of the word of God.  
         Being sick, or disabled, or in poverty does not bring glory and honor to God, but believing, and acting on His word does.  
 
         This is Faith Cabin signing off for now.  Love, blessings, and smiles.
