How Faith Works.
The amount of belief you apply to something you expect to happen.
Bishop Dr Michael L. Craddock Sr.
That measure of faith that is given to all men. Is equal, but most have learned to increase it.
Where others have left it alone.
Our faith must exceed the day before. Because, you have an example now that faith has worked for you yesterday, so today you add a little bit more until that mountain scratches the ground under the pressure of your pushing it.
Now faith is the conviction concerning those things that are in hope, as if it were these things in action, and the revelation of those things that are unseen;
It is already done.
Whatever we ask for in Jesus name is done for us. Because we are people who believe God can and will keep His promises to all men.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
But you and I have to start standing on what we say we believe. How can you test something works if you do not use it.
Faith Works because you put it to action based upon your conviction that it will take place.
They said: A spoonful of sugar, helps the medicine go down.
Where is the faith in that?
It is in the fact that you believe what they said it will do, before you open your mouth to take the medicine.
My faith is not in the doctors yelling me I have a condition that needs to be worked on.
My faith is in the Lord who promised to heal my infirmities. I believe He is a healer, over the medicines that I do take. I do not have faith in albuterol for asthma, I have faith that there is something more I must do to be healed.
Follow the plan God gives for healing our bodies.
“So, doubt is the substance of things you do not receive and the evidence it never was on its way in the first place”.
The enemy gave us a measure of doubt. He did everything accordingly to remove all hope in God that is in us as believers. We allowed that to take place, and now we doubt more of the time than we believe.
Your faith is a commodity. It acquires what you want and need.
Faith is measured to every man. It means God equally started us out at the same level of faith. Some increase it more, because they have learned to trust in God to get what they want.
Once He gives you His favor and permission on a thing.
That should increase your belief, your faith, and trust in the Lord.
Faith can be seen, but it must be used in order to work properly.
You can’t just see a thing accomplished and not apply faith to make it work in your favor.
Abraham saw the place where he had to take Isaac.
His faith began, when he told the servants.
Me and the lad will return.
You go into the situation with a strong ending already in mind.
You won’t be motivated to believe inside the problem.
If you don’t believe He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
Why then would He give you what you ask for, when you need faith in Him to get it?
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith
If you live your faith, it will work.
If you live your doubt, fear, and frustrations, it will work.
Whatever you apply to you life will either increase or stand still.
Faith longs for increasing.
Doubt backs us away from forward motion.
24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
2 Cor. 1:24
We are not in competition with faith. Whoever is trying win the most faith awards. You can’t win at faith, you must endure to the end.
The race is not given to strong, but to he that endures to the end.
Even when you have losses along the journey.
Endure to the end. Stay faithful. In faith are we strong. Muscles thin out over time, and become feeble. Faith is lasting strength from the inside, with outward results.
Now that’s how faith works.
