KEY SCRIPTURE Joh 11:23 KJV” Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again”.
The scriptures have shown that God always responds to our faith in Him. Just after Martha said, I know that God will do whatever you ask Him; the Lord promptly answered her, and said, your brother will live again. Heb 11:2 says ” through faith, the elders obtained a good report. It also adds that without faith, it is impossible to please God. Faith in God honours Him the most. Faith in God places one on God’s level and makes his or her actions as God himself.
Why is functioning in faith so important to relate with God? God is a Spirit, and faith in Him makes the individual also function in that capacity. Your faith is the spiritual hand to receive from the Lord. Our nose is our physical ability to smell. The mouth of a man cannot smell anything. You would always need the nose to do the smelling. The nose cannot also taste anything. The spiritual is a very real world. The spiritual is absent in the eyes, nose, ears, skin, and tongue. These parts are the body’s sensory organs, to contact the physical world. How does a man contact the spiritual realm? He does it by his faith.
Faith functions from the heart. The heart of man is where his spirit is. Rom 10:10 KJV “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.” We believe with the heart. We do not believe with our minds, sight, or any of the senses. Just as you cannot see with your ears, so can’t a man believe with physical senses, but with our heart? This is the reason faith may not sound reasonable, yet always brings results.
Thank you, father, for your word that builds faith in me. By my faith in you, all things are possible with me. My faith takes me I am free from the world of stress and anxiety. My faith put me in charge of every situation.
