Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. When Jesus talked about faith he said “If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed.” He said that because he was comparing faith to a seed. When you plant a seed that seed works to produce the very thing it was planted to produce. That seed does not produce in the earth until it breaks through the ground. Sometimes that seed will sprout and produce a little but so often it will produce much more. That seed that is faith is faith.
Looking at faith from this perspective lets us see the infinite possibilities that can come from each and every seed that is planted in the ground. When that seed is planted in the ground it can come forth and produce much fruit and be much help to the grower and all of humanity.
Your seeds can be planted in the heart of your most difficult life problem and they will produce a harvest for you, much peace, much fruit and much love. Seeing faith this way can change the way you approach your own problem.
Jesus taught by the lake. Jesus said if you will hearken to the words that I am saying you will have what is called ‘terminus’. This means the end to the information or problem that you are facing. It is at this point that you resolve any problems by taking your stand on the Word of God. You stand your ground and your faith will produce. At this point you are prepared to be stagnant for a time. This is no easy task. It takes a lot of effort and energy but it also works. I have to admit my life has been easier because of faith that I have had in God.
You can not rise to the job of your life unless you first believe you can. You have to believe that you were made in the image of God and through Jesus Christ. If you believe this then you will believe that anything is possible with God. I believe that my daughter needs some serious healing not because of her health but because of her belief that she can be healed. She is doing much healing and leading the way for others by her strong faith. Can you believe that your health can bring you so much blessing?
With God all things are possible. We were made to do many things on this earth. We were all given abilities and although much of us have chosen to hide our God given gifts that God has instilled in us, it is our inability to serve the greater good of others that allows the lies, fear and hardships to beset us. You can not put a Switzerland hat on a sow. sow is the word that produces the fruit of the earth not the swine. If you truly believe that you are serving others by your faith then stand on the word of God and take the necessary actions to reach your goal.
Know that with your mouth you have revealed your faith or you wouldn’t have said it. Faith is what pleases God. Faith is the assurance that God is moving in your life and is at work for you even though it may be very hard on your own spirit. Faith is believing in that which God has spoken unto you. Be willing to stand, change and believe even though you “know” things aren’t going right. With God nothing is impossible with you. ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
In the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses shall every word be established.
The bible is the book, its messages read to us by the 2 or 3 witnesses. Jesus called the testament a mystery. Something which is not passible unto man. Yet it is. The fact that it is a mystery is only an acknowledgment of the fact that it is God’s word to us. He has placed within us these words to show us what is written in his word and to show us that we have no right to question what it says.
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”. (John 14:6) Those who have the word of God in their heart and believe in it with all their heart are not foolish. Jesus said in John 10:27 but the (fool) will receive such with their heart; even as the (fool) they have received, that they have truly received. Those who have faith in it without reading the (spiritual) book are not doing it for the truth sake but for the pleasure sake. This is true, many people have this (good) word planted in their hearts but don’t act on it. They are still as selfish and mock it when it isn’t in fashion. This is not true faith.
