About Faith 275-285

#275 Where there is faith, miracles happen.

#276 Your faith increases as you receive more revelation of God’s Word. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

#277 Faith comes from past victories that God has done for you, and answered prayers.

#278 Abraham did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God; but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God. Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised.

#279 God never gives you a dream that matches your budget. He’s not checking your bank account, He’s checking your faith. He is your Supplier.

#280 Make room. God is enlarging your territory. 1 Chronicles 4:10

#281 Prayer is the key turned by the handle of faith that unlocks the treasures of God. Author Unknown

#282 Having faith isn’t just positive thinking (although that helps). Faith comes from the heart, not the mind. Faith is not mental assent.

#283 Faith is being fully persuaded of the thing you cannot see, and knowing it is going to happen.

#284 True faith manifests itself through our actions. Faith without works is dead.

#285 Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.

#264 God will open the door, but you still have to walk through it. Never let fear keep you from going where your faith is trying to take you.

#265 There is no limit to what God can do! Just believe and have faith.

#266 It is your responsibility to speak to the mountain (problem, obstacle) in your life (not the responsibility of a prophet, pastor or spiritual leaders).

#267 If you don’t speak to your mountain, and tell it to get out of your way, it will speak to you.

#268 Put fear and doubt behind you. God can do the impossible if you just believe.

#269 You have to learn to be the prophet over your own life. Speak and decree what you would like to see happen. Call it into existence.

#270 Jesus said in John 14:14, “If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.”

#271 Whose report will you believe? The medical report may be true, but it is subject to change with faith, and believing that God’s Word is true. He heals today.

#272 Jesus said in Mark 11:24, “What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.”

#273 Speak things into existence, calling those things which are not as though they already were. God has created us to be speaking spirits like He is.

#274 Choose faith over worry.

#253 Faith is not always knowing what the future holds, but knowing who holds the future.

#254 Fear shuts down faith; and faith is what keeps us connected with God.

#255 As a rule, God does not perform supernaturally what we have the power to do for ourselves. Kenneth E. Hagin, Sr.

#256 You can make faith confessions for a hundred years but your faith simply won’t work in an atmosphere of unforgiveness. Kenneth E. Hagin, Sr.

#257 Jesus did not teach Mark 11:23 “he shall have whatsoever he believeth”; He taught “he shall have whatsoever he SAITH.” Kenneth E. Hagin, Sr.

#258 Faith and the Word attack problems at the root (spirit realm). Don’t try to solve problems at the level of the leaves (natural realm). Dr. Bill Winston

#259 Faith is a law (Romans 3:27). The law of the Old Testament was the Law of Works. In the New Covenant, we are living under the Law of Faith and Grace.

#260 A lot of Christians fail to understand that faith is a definite, purposeful act of the HEART. It is not a mental exercise. Kenneth Copeland

#261 Faith first takes the promise, and then possesses the promise.

#262 Your faith can move mountains, and your doubt can create them.

#263 If you can accomplish your dreams in your own strength, your dreams are too small! Faith in God will bring your dreams to pass.

#242 Faith places a demand on your Covenant rights and the promises in God’s Word.

#243 Faith finds Scriptures to back up your petitions, because you first have to know what the Bible says about a certain thing before you can have faith for it.

#244 Connect your faith to someone who is likeminded. If just two of you agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father in Heaven.

#245 Faith expects it to happen (whatever it is you are believing for).

#246 Abraham represents faith, and Sarah represents grace. Faith and Grace always go together. We are saved by faith and grace. Faith believes it has received the answer before it’s happened. Grace gives you the strength and composure to be patient and wait for the manifestation of the answer. Grace empowers you. Grace gives you rest and an ease about things, and as you enter into God’s Sabbath rest you are refreshed and find your strength to hold on until the answer comes.

#247 Abraham was both a prophet and an intercessor. He experienced a contradiction in his life when it came to his faith. He prayed for the house of Abimelech that barrenness would be removed, and God answered his prayer. Yet his own wife remained barren for years and years. However, Abraham never lost faith. He kept on believing despite the odds. In God’s timing, Abraham and Sarah’s prayers were answered when God brought resurrection life back into Abraham’s body (because by this time he was too old to father children) and God quickened Sarah’s dead womb and she conceived Isaac, the son of promise.

#248 Abraham’s faith was tested again when Isaac was a youth or young adult. God told Abraham to offer Isaac on the altar. Abraham obeyed God. Abraham believed that God would raise Isaac from the dead because God promised that through Isaac his offspring would be as the sand on the seashore and as the stars in the heavens. At the last moment, an angel of the Lord stopped the sacrifice. A ram was provided and offered instead.

#249 Faith sees vision first before it speaks. You have to daydream and have an image on the inside, then begin to call what you see into existence.

#250 God wired us for faith and not fear. Faith propels us forward, but fear paralyzes.

#251 Faith is not a struggle. It is a rest.

#252 When you are truly in faith, you are at rest. You trust God.

#231 Faith is the leaning of the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence (1 Timothy 1:19a Amplified).

#232 What is faith? It’s knowing that His Word is true, and He is faithful to His promises.

#233 The Word of God is the food of faith. Smith Wigglesworth

#234 Faith takes God without any ifs. D.L. Moody

#235 Sticks and stones may break my bones but WORDS—may change the course of someone’s life forever! Roberts Liardon

#236 Faith is not measured by miracles, but by the obedience to the Word of God. Ed Cole

#237 Until you settle the fact that God is Good and you can trust Him with your life, your faith is never going to be great because you will always draw back in fear. Gloria Copeland

#238 Don’t let your emotions interfere with your faith. Fear is the biggest enemy to faith. “Fear Not” says the Lord! God wired us for faith and not fear. Faith propels us forward, but fear paralyzes.

#239 Praise is the language of faith. What are you believing God to do in your life today? Begin to praise Him for it. Sing and dance before the Lord.

#240 Faith is a rest. When you are not at rest you are not in faith. Dr. Bill Winston

#241 Faith is specific in prayer. Ask for exactly what you would like to receive. Write down every detail, and keep it before your eyes to read and pray over.

#177 You have to have the seed of the Word planted deep in your heart, because Satan will come to steal the Word (Mark 4:4-20).

#178 We will encounter opposition from the devil when we stand in faith; resist him, and he will flee (James 4:7).

#179 You have to spend time with the Lord every day to have total victory in your life.

#180 Offense will hinder your faith and keep you from receiving all God wants to do in your life.

#181 There will be giants (problems, obstacles) in the promised land, but faith will overcome every giant.

#182 Faith has to be implemented (applied, executed, put into action, put into effect).

#183 We implement what we want to come to pass with our words, backed up by faith.

#184 Our words reveal what is in our heart, whether good or evil. Out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart the mouth speaks (Luke 6:44-45).

#185 It takes effort to speak in agreement with what the Word says because we live in a negative world. It’s like swimming upstream.

#186 It’s possible to say the right things but have doubt in your heart. Faith has to be in your heart, and if it is, then the things coming out of your mouth will be faith-filled.

#187 Jesus said that if we do not doubt in our heart, but believe that those things which we say shall come to pass, we shall have whatever we ask (Mark 11:23).

#188 Every sickness and disease are under the curse of the law (Deuteronomy 28), and we were redeemed from the curse (Galations 3:13). Healing is for us.

#189 Some healings manifest instantly, while other healings take a while. That’s why we need faith and patience working together.

#190 Keep on confessing healing Scriptures over your body until the healing manifests. Visualize yourself as being healed.

#191 A double-minded man who wavers between faith and doubt cannot expect to receive anything from the Lord (James 1:6-8).

#192 One way of drawing back is to be in faith for a while, but when it takes too long, saying “this faith isn’t working” and give up.

#193 Abraham and Sarah waited in faith for the promise of a son for 25 years before it came to pass. God is faithful to fulfill His promises.

About Faith #162-176

#162 Faith is a spiritual force which comes by hearing the preaching of the Word of God.

#163 Faith hears, sees, speaks, believes, receives (takes, possesses), fights (the good fight of faith).

#164 Mark 11:23 says “Whosoever”—from the top to the lowest spectrum of the scale. Faith will work for anyone.

#165 Faith obtains your victory (1 John 5:4).

#166 Faith is walking out the plan of God as God reveals it to us, step by step, and it takes steadfast endurance.

#167 Faith and hope differ, in that faith changes things. Hope’s job is to keep you moving forward until the manifestation comes.

#168 Faith makes it so there is no separation between Heaven and earth. Faith connects Heaven with earth.

#169 Caleb was a mighty man of faith (Numbers 13:26-30). He declared that they (the Israelites) were well able to take the land of Canaan.

#170 You have to contend for what you’re believing for, because the devil will try to steal your dream or talk you out of it.

#171 Faith recovers things that are lost, faith takes new ground, faith creates if necessary. Gloria Copeland

#172 Engage (battle) with your faith, knowing Heaven will back you up! Gloria Copeland

#173 Engaging your faith brings wholeness and healing. Gloria Copeland

#174 The woman with the issue of blood came in the press. We have to press in to receive our miracle or answer.

#175 The woman with the issue of blood did four things and received her answer: 1) Before she got to Jesus, she already believed in her heart that she had received her healing 2) She said within herself, “If I just touch His clothes I shall be made whole” 3) She took action, and pressed through the crowds to get to Jesus, and she touched the hem of His garment 4) She testified about her miracle when Jesus asked who touched Him.

#176 Jairus did four things and received his miracle. 1) He heard about Jesus and believed that He would heal his daughter 2) Jairus said to Jesus that if He came to his house, laid His hands on his daughter, that his daughter would be healed and live 3) Jairus took action by seeking Jesus out and imploring Jesus to come to his house 4) Jairus was a public figure, so his daughter’s rising from the dead was a testimony to everyone in the area of the power of God.
