A Faith that Works
The Word of God says that my victory over this world is my faith (1 John 5:4). If my victory over this world is my faith, then I think it most vital and important to know how to walk in faith. As a believer I want to know how to have a faith that works. A working faith is absolutely indispensable in my walk with God. I began by faith, I walk it out by faith and I will reach my full potential by faith. Faith is not elusive, complicated or out of reach. Faith is available to everyone who will choose it.
1. By Faith we Understand. Hebrews 11:3
By faith understand and believe that the realm of the spirit is real whether we see it or not.
2. By Faith we Hear & Believe. Romans 10:9-10
Faith comes by hearing. Romans 10:17
Faith believes the Word of God is The Truth. John 14:6
Faith is produced when we receive the Word of God into our hearts and mix it with faith. Hebrews 4:2
3. By Faith we Speak. 2 Corinthians 4:13
Hold fast the profession of our faith – we maintain a faith filled confession. Hebrews 10:23
Faith says what the Word of God says regardless of the external or natural factors. Romans 4:19-21
4. By Faith we Obey. James 1:22; James 2:20-23
By faith we obey the word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Faith will always require an obedience. No matter how small or insignificant, obedience is necessary for faith to work and the power of God to be released.
5. By Faith we Give Thanks. Philippians 4:6; Colossians 2:7, 4:2
By faith we give thanks to God knowing that we have the victory and the possession of the things we are believing for. Thanksgiving is the evidence that I have received what was believed for.
