About Faith #401-450

About Faith #401-450

#401 To get into your full potential, you must take a step of faith. You must have the Word of God to develop the faith that pleases God. Dr. Bill Winston

#402 Your faith grows as you use it.

#403 Your faith cannot live without hope! Hebrews 11:1

#404 When your hope dies, your faith will soon follow! Hope is the lighthouse for faith!

#405 When it’s time for you to get up from a situation, you will get up!

#406 You can get up from sickness, lack and depression. It all begins with making a decision to become well.

#407 Jesus knows how to manifest anything for you, no matter how unlikely you think it is; including your healing and prosperity. 3 John 2

#408 It’s believing and saying that causes things to come to pass. It’s believing and saying that causes us to increase.

#409 Your faith is not to help you avoid problems, it’s to help you go through them with stability. Joyce Meyer

#410 The believing part is the faith part. Our words must have faith behind them for them to be faith words.

#411 If we speak the right things, yet have doubt and unbelief in our heart that it will actually happen, then it probably won’t happen.

#412 You cannot claim something that you don’t believe in your heart and expect it to come to pass. Your words must match the faith in your heart.

#413 Sometimes we may have faith in our heart, yet thoughts of doubt in our mind. That is normal. The enemy puts thoughts of doubt in our mind.

#414 God is looking at the faith in your heart. If your faith words and your heart is in agreement, then things will begin to come to pass in your life.

#415  God wants you to be the carrier of His Word. Your words are spiritual and have authority. Dr. Bill Winston

#416 Focus on the promises and not the pain.

#417 Quit telling how your flesh is doing and begin telling your flesh how it’s going to do.

#418 Focus your attention and conversation on God to regain proper perspective.

#419 Faith gives substance to your hope.

#420 Faith is being convinced that we have what we have not seen.

#421 Faith is your hand reaching out and taking what God has promised.

#422 Faith is taking what God offered us. Faith is to receive the written promises of God.

#423 Faith is a rest, not a striving. Faith is leaning on Him.

#424 Faith is trusting God and depending on Him. You work with Him, knowing what His will is for you, trusting Him to get the answer to you.

#425 Faith is picturing it done. www.sidroth.org Josiah Cullen (Josiah’s Fire: Autism Stole His Words, God Gave Him a Voice by Tahni Cullen and Cheryl Ricker, Broadstreet Publishing Group, 2016)

#426 Faith is believing for kites to fly when there is no wind in sight. www.sidroth.org Josiah Cullen (Josiah’s Fire: Autism Stole His Words, God Gave Him a Voice by Tahni Cullen and Cheryl Ricker, Broadstreet Publishing Group, 2016)

#427 Faith is past tense, present tense and future tense.

#431 The Greek word for faith means to be persuaded; credence; moral conviction; assurance; belief; to convince (by argument for true or false).

#432 God favors and honors faith.

#433 You can grow and increase in faith.

#434 Your faith will activate favor.

#435 Great faith releases great favor.

#436 Men and women of God who walked in faith in Hebrews 11 received favor from God and man.

#437 Faith is connected to your mouth – what you say. In Mark 11:23 “believe” is mentioned once, and “say” is mentioned three times.

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

#439 When you forgive, your faith will produce results and move mountains for you. Kenneth E. Hagin

#440 It’s with the human spirit—or the heart—that we believe. Real faith is of the heart. Kenneth E. Hagin

#441 Believe it in your heart; say it with your mouth. That is the principle of faith. You can have what you say. Kenneth E. Hagin

#442 It’s not that faith is blind, it’s sight of a higher kind. Keith Moore

#443 Impatience reveals a lack of faith. Through faith AND patience you inherit the promises (Hebrews 6:12). Keith Moore

#444 Doubt despairs, complains and is sad. FAITH rejoices, gives thanks and is glad. Keith Moore

#445 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised) Hebrews 10:23

#446 If you refuse God’s correction, you’ll be confused by His direction. Keith Moore

#447 When your heart beats as one with Jesus, you love people and you have faith. Lester Sumrall

#448 Faith is when God and man choose to walk together in life, to think together and, if I may even say, to laugh together. Lester Sumrall

#449 Believe it in your heart; say it with your mouth. That is the principle of faith. You can have what you say. Kenneth E. Hagin

#450 Hope says, “I’ll have it sometime”, faith says, “I have it now.” Kenneth E. Hagin

About Faith #351-400

About Faith #351-400

#351  The words you speak will become your reality. Only say what you would like to see happen in your life.

#352  “And God will generously provide all you need and plenty left over to share with others.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

#353  God would not have put a dream in your heart if He hadn’t already given you everything you need to fulfill it.

#354  If you have to verify things with your five senses, you are not in faith.

#355  The Word you speak in faith will cause you to prosper. The Word of God is alive, it will do the work!

#356  What you hear affects what you think which affects what you believe and your future.

#357  When you believe God’s Word and speak it, it has the same power as if God spoke it! (Because Jesus has given us authority.)

#358  No word of God is without power. Believe it, speak it and God will manifest His goodness to you.

#359  You were born for exploits and to demonstrate the power of God to the whole world. They are waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.

#360  Your faith triggers God’s anointing when you act on the Word of God.

#361  It’s never too late to start believing God for wholeness, health and breakthrough. Faith is now, time cannot limit God!

#362  Jesus didn’t come to coexist with poverty, He came to destroy it. There is no poverty in Heaven, only wealth beyond human imagination.

#363  Faith is not to move God to work on your behalf. Faith moves you into position to RECEIVE what God has ALREADY given (promised, provided for) you.

#364  A spirit that is wounded or damaged, is difficult to create the force of faith to come out of it to do what needs to be done. Dr. Bill Winston

#365  Your faith takes possession of what Grace has already provided.

#366 The only parts of the Bible that do you any good are the parts that you believe and act on.

#367 Jesus said that we (the Body of Christ) would do even greater works, miracles, healings and exploits than He did. Do you believe this?

#368 To do greater works than Jesus did, it requires great faith, prayer, intimacy with the Holy Spirit, obedience to the Word of God, a life of holiness, knowing your authority as a Believer, understanding who you are in Christ (your identity), receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for power and service, walking in love, and being filled with the anointing of God.

#369 Fear is the lack of confidence. Fear always accompanies unbelief and unbelief leads to destroying your faith. Dr. Clarice Fluitt

#370 Faith doesn’t try to make, convince, beg, plead, force or coerce God to do something. Instead, faith claims what God ALREADY did for us when He sent Jesus to the Cross. Faith takes hold of what God has ALREADY provided for us. Everything we need in this life on earth has already been provided for us and is located in the spirit realm. Faith is what transfers it from the spirit realm into the earth realm and makes it a reality in our lives.

#371 Faith begins to speak things you are believing for into existence and believing in your heart that it will come to pass. Your words of faith, and confessing the Word of God, activate angels to work on your behalf. The Bible says that angels heed the Voice of the Word of God.

#372 Faith begins with asking God for what you need and want. The Bible says we have not because we ask not.

#373 Faith believes in the heart that God will give whatever you are asking for to you, whether you feel you deserve it or not (because God’s blessings and provision is by grace, not by merit or being spiritual enough).

#374 Faith says the right things. Believing involves only speaking words of faith and victory, and not of doubt, unbelief, defeat, fear, negativity or complaining.

#375 Faith empowers people to overcome and be successful. Fear, doubt and unbelief keeps people defeated, and feeling like victims.

#376 Faith begins to prophesy what you would like to see come to pass in your life, and be very specific too. You have to learn how to be the prophet over your own life and family, and begin to decree and declare what the Word of God promises you can have, and it will be established unto you.

#377 Faith begins to thank and praise God, and dance for joy in advance, for your promise from God, healing, miracle, breakthrough, future spouse or provision even before it manifests.

#378 Faith begins to confess Scriptures that pertain to your situation. The Word of God, when applied, is like medicine to the body, mind, soul and spirit.

#379 Faith and patience work together as power twins. Some things take time to get from the spirit realm into the earthly realm. Also, when you are dealing with other people who are involved, you cannot override their will. God has to speak to them too and they have to make choices on their own. Sometimes it causes delays when there are other people involved.

#380 Faith involves sowing generous offerings (over and above the tithe, which is 10% of your gross income). Faith involves applying the principles of sowing and reaping.

#381 Faith is activated by visualization. When you post pictures on a vision board, in a journal, or on your computer or I-phone that represents whatever it is you are believing God for, and keep it before your eyes day and night, then eventually it becomes a reality in your life. This principle is seen in the story of Jacob and the spotted and speckled flock. It’s also seen in the account of Abraham, living in the desert, looking at the multiplied trillions of grains of sand every day during the daytime and beholding the innumerable stars in the heavens at night, and that represented how many descendants he would have (more than can be counted).

#382 Faith only operates when you are in a place of rest and peace, and fully trusting God. Striving will get you nowhere. Enter into God’s Sabbath Rest, and let Him take care of your battles for you. He wins each and every time. Get out of God’s way and don’t tie His hands by acting in the flesh. When you act in the flesh it only causes further complications and delays, and births Ishmael’s.

#383 To be in faith means to actively pursue a relationship with the Holy Spirit. Learn to hear His Voice. He speaks in numerous ways all the time. He will tell you what to do in each and every situation you face. He will give you wisdom and revelation, insight and understanding, and shed light on matters. He will lead you into all truth. He has your best interest at heart.

#384 Faith comes by HEARING. Hearing what, you may ask? Hearing the Word of God being taught and preached. Likewise, fear, doubt and unbelief also comes by hearing too – that is, hearing the negative reports of the devil, this world, the media, or even some religious folks who try to instill words of fear and unbelief into you or try to talk you out of your dreams. But faith in God comes from hearing the Word of God over and over again until it takes root. Faith comes from hearing faith-building messages on a consistent basis. Faith comes from learning how to get into the Word of God for yourself (self-feed) and diligently seek the Scriptures out and study it out for yourself, and dig out God’s treasures.

#385 Faith is not content with living an average, mediocre life or trying to be like everybody else. Or accepting a barely get-by, month-to-month existence financially, or getting into debt, as being the normal way it is in life.  Faith is not accepting a life filled with sickness and disease and weakness as a normal part of life.  Instead, faith believes it can have a better life and a more quality life. Faith accepts the fact that Jesus died to give us an abundant life (not just in Heaven someday, but also in the here and now).

#386 Faith doesn’t just wish and dream, but takes steps of action to achieve those dreams. It may mean making changes in our lifestyle and daily habits, or getting advanced training, or reading helpful material to help you reach your goals and dreams, or setting realistic goals that are achievable. Faith applies not only the spiritual principles found in the Word of God, but also things we can do in the natural to improve the quality of our lives. Faith partners with God to see their dreams come to pass, and their prayers answered.

#387 Faith will only work when you are walking in love and treating people with respect and honor. Dishonor will cancel out your faith and you won’t see the results in your life you would like to see. Dishonor will cut off your financial flow and cause resources to dry up. Dishonor will hinder your prayers from being answered. Dishonor will cause you to not qualify to receive your inheritance, or cause you to forfeit occupying your promised land. When you dishonor and show disrespect to others, it’s the same as dishonoring the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

#388 Faith will only work in your life if you are walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh (Galations 6). You cannot abuse or mistreat people and have working faith, or expect your prayers to be answered. You cannot come into the full blessings of God or live the abundant life if you do wicked or corrupt deeds, live in immorality, and live in disobedience to God’s commands. If you dabble into witchcraft or psychics, or get involved with others who do so, you can be assured that after a grace period you will be cut off from the Vine unless you repent – it’s that serious.

#389 Faith won’t work right if your home is filled with strife, chaos, tension, discord and fighting. God’s blessings rests on unity.

#390 Faith is like a bulldog. It is stubbornly aggressive, persistent and determined. It is a breed of remarkable ferocity, courage and tenacity of grip. Bite down on the Word of God and don’t let go. Pastor George Pearsons

#391 We must feed our spirit “faith food” to be strong. It contains the proper nutrients to have a strong spirit. Pastor George Pearsons

#392 The Lord wants you to get more aggressive about exercising your faith to lay hold of and possess new territory. Aggressively reach out with your faith and take what you need—command it to come. Demand it! Pastor George Pearsons

#393 Faith consists of believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. Zig Ziglar

#394 Faith is the Divine energy of life. Faith is alive. The Word of God is quick (alive) and active.

#395 Faith looks like extreme persistence and becomes a prayer that does not give up. Jennifer Eivaz

#396 Your words are containers that hold your future—fill them with declarations of God’s promises. Cathy Duplantis

#397 Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to. Pastor Rob Spina

#398 When you choose faith instead of fear it activates God’s power.

#399 Let faith be bigger than your fear.

#400 Put actions behind your faith. Talk, walk and believe like it’s going to happen. Victoria Osteen

 

About Faith #301-350

About Faith #301-350

#301  God wants you well!  God wants you prosperous!  God wants you whole!  Just have faith and call it into existence.

#302  I believe my miracle has already happened in the unseen realm, and my faith pulls it into the seen realm.

#303  Faith needs to be exercised, like a muscle. The more you walk in faith, the easier it gets to have faith.  It builds momentum.

#304  When we train our brains to dwell on faith and not the negative kind of fear, we will change our attitudes and expectations from negative to positive.

#305  Speak life over your family, bodies, home, land, finances, ministry, pets.  Positive results will happen.

#306  God does not move in your life when you struggle.  He moves when you pray in faith.

#307  Fill your mouth with thanksgiving. Maintain a thankful attitude all the time.  It will go a long way in undergirding faith and patience.

#308  Know who you are in Christ and your authority as a Believer. You are an overcomer.

#309 Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.”

#310  Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness (or right way of living and doing things); and all these “things” (material things, or anything you need) shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33

#311  Speak life. Words have the power to create or energize, or the power to destroy.

#312  Speak life into your dead dreams.  Allow the dreamer inside of you to dream again.

#313  When someone tells you it cannot be done, it’s more of a reflection of their limitations, not yours.  With faith, anything is possible.

#314  Jeremiah 32:27 says, “Behold, I am the Lord (Yahweh, the Creator of everything that exists), the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for Me?”

#315  Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, and live the life you’ve imagined.  God put those dreams in your heart.

#316  You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.  St. Teresa of Avila

#317  The giant in front of you is never bigger than the God who lives in you.  You are well able to defeat your Goliath like David did.

#318  Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them.  Mahaliah Jackson

#319  When we least expect it, God brings a big solution that is better and easier than we ever expected!

#320  Don’t put your limits on a limitless God.  Pray ridiculous prayers!  Sandi Krakowski

#321  The same faith that removes mountains moves us to obey God.  You cannot be disobedient to God or the Word of God and have working faith.

#322  Vision is when you see it and others don’t.  Faith is when you do it and others won’t.  With vision and faith things can be done.  Luci Swindoll

#323 The only word Satan respects is the Word of God when it is spoken and acted on. He is defeated and bound in chains by the authority of the Word of God.  Jesus replied to the devil, “It is written …”

#324  God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has.  But He can’t if you don’t pray, and He can’t if you don’t dream.  In short, He can’t if you don’t believe.

#325  Set the tone for each day by speaking words of faith over your future.

#326  Jesus said in John 10:10, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

#327  The beloved Apostle John said in 3 John 2, “Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.”  Your health and financial prosperity greatly depends on the condition of the prosperity of your soul (mind, will, emotions and traditions).

#328  ASK.  “Ask and it shall be given unto you.”  The first step of faith is to ask God for what you want or need.  You have not because you ask not (James 4:2).

#329  The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.  If it’s full of faith, it will speak faith and words of life.  If it’s full of hate, evil, fear or doubt, it will speak complaints, negative things and evil abusive words.

#330  God doesn’t ask you to figure it all out.  He just asks you to believe.

#331  The reason that God honors faith is because faith honors God.

#332 We serve a Mighty God! In Matthew 8:27, the men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him.”

#333  Faith is not an emotion.  It’s a decision to stand on the authority of God’s Word.

#334  Pray and ask.  Then give God time to answer.

#335  Faith is like a little mustard seed.  It starts out small like a tiny seed, but when planted it will grow into a large tree giving shade to others.

#336 “The Lord shall open unto thee His good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in His season, and to bless all the work of thine hand.  And thou shalt lend unto many nations, and not borrow.”  Deuteronomy 28:12

#337  Spend time in God’s Word, then see your faith increase.

#338  God planned for me to prosper in every area of life, to be blessed and not cursed, to be strong, and to take my rightful authority in the earth as a manifested son of God.

#339  Great grace is activated in my life.  I am empowered to prosper.  The word prosper means to forge ahead, to make progress, to excel.  This applies not only to money, but to your relationships and health.

#340  Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.  Elisabeth Elliott

#341  When the devil begins to pressure you, do not go back on what you prayed in faith.  Stand firm until the answer comes.

#342  If you are always expecting things to not work out, shift that thinking and get your hopes up.  In order for faith to work, you must first have hope.

#343  This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.

#344  H.O.P.E. = Have Only Positive Expectations

#345  Don’t downgrade your dream to match your reality.  Upgrade your faith to match your destiny.

#346 Doubt sees the obstacles. Faith sees the way. Doubt sees the darkest night. Faith sees the day. Doubt dreads to take a step. Faith soars on high. Doubt questions, “Who believes?” Faith answers, “I”. Author unknown.

#347  I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible; then it is difficult; then it is done. Hudson Taylor

#348  God has a perfect plan for us. He never does it all at once, just step by step because He wants to teach us to walk by faith, not by sight.

#349  Believe God’s Word more than you do the devil’s threats.

#350  Bless your future today with faith-filled words. Whatever you declare, God will do it.

 

About Faith #251-300

About Faith #251-300

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

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

#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

#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

#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

#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.

#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.”  If you abide in Him, there’s no way you will ask anything amiss.

#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.

#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 also 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.

#286  Jesus said in John 15:7, “If you remain (abide) in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.”

#287  Faith = Forwarding All Issues To Heaven

#288  You have to trust God and keep your hope, because your hope is what produces your faith. And your faith is what activates the power of God.

#289  God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask, think or imagine.  Ephesians 3:20

#290  God gives miracles to those who believe.

#291 If God said it, He will do it. He is not a human who lies or a mortal who changes his mind. When He says something, He will do it. When He makes a promise, He will fulfill it.

#292 Study God’s Word to find out what belongs to you through Christ.  Use your faith to withdraw from Heaven what belongs to you in the earth.

#293  Everything we receive from God, we receive by faith. Nothing is more faith building than discovering that our Heavenly Father is good!

#294  Have a dream that takes you beyond where you are now. Dream so big that it is beyond you and God has to show up.

#295  Getting into serious financial debt or losing your home over a dream God gives you is not faith, it’s presumption or stepping out prematurely.

#296  You can use your faith to call in finances for a dream God gives you. When it’s the right timing, everything will fall into place. The finances will come in and the payments will be manageable. You will feel an ease and peace about things, rather than pressure.

#297  Living debt free in your personal life and ministry is God’s very best.  Jesus said to owe no man anything, except to love one another.  Use your faith to believe that every bill is paid on time and in full, and that there is money left over in the bank.

#298  Faith opens the door to God’s promise for you. And patience keeps it open until that promise is fulfilled.

#299  There is nothing in your life that Jesus cannot restore.  Just have faith and speak into existence your restoration.  Joel 2:25

#300  Courage doesn’t come from an absence of fear, but an abundance of faith.

#205 The good news of the Gospel manifests the power of God when it is believed and acted on.

#206 When we find out from the Word what God says about a matter, then we can decree with authority whatever we are believing for.

#208 Faith is trusting God as you take your next step.

#209 Through faith, the elders obtained a good report (Hebrews 11:2).

#210 Faith begins to make preparations (as if the answer were already in manifestation). For example, if you’re believing for a better job, then begin to prepare by taking classes to receive advanced training.  If you’re believing for a baby, then begin to prepare the nursery.

#211 Personal vision is fulfilled by corporate vision commitment.  What God called me to do in my personal life is fulfilled when I connect myself to something corporately that God called us to do collectively.  Bishop C. Carl Smith

#212 When God speaks a thing, He always speaks a proceeding word, a word for advancement with some good.  Therefore, it is no longer IF it comes, but WHEN it comes.  For the promise shall surely come. Bishop C. Carl Smith

#213 Having faith does not mean you won’t have trouble. Faith will bring you OUT of trouble. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers him out of them ALL” (Ps 34:19).

#214 Faith is the beginning or starting point of your turnaround (Mark 11:22-24).

#215 Don’t let the traditions of man neutralize your faith, such as the tradition that says that healing is not for today. The Word says we are healed by Jesus’ stripes.

#216 God works miracles not by the works of the law, but by the hearing of faith (Galations 3:5).

#217 Only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham (Galatians 3:7).

#218 Faith and diligence brings promotion and increase in your life.

#219 Claim God’s protection and safety by faith (Psalms 91). Accept Him as your protector, as well as Savior.

#220 The fig tree dried up from the roots when Jesus cursed it (Mark 11:13-14,20-26). We can command sickness to be dried up from the roots.

#221 When you spend time in the Word, it gives you faith.

#222 Faith is what sustains you through a test or trial. You will come out of the fire without even the smell of smoke.

#223 You must first have hope before you have faith. The one with the most hope has the most influence.

#224 Faith pleases God and opens doors.

#225 Faith is the radar that sees through the fog. Corrie ten Boom

#226 Faith sees God involved in your circumstances.

#227 Faith doesn’t look at the symptoms or pain, but faith focuses on the promises in the Word. (Faith doesn’t deny facts, but changes facts.)

#228 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).

#229 “Believe you receive in the faith realm, and you shall have it in the natural realm.” John Osteen

#230 Faith has eyes. It sees the end result before it happens. You have to get an image on the inside. You have to picture yourself receiving whatever it is you’re believing for, then begin to thank God and call it into existence.

#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 & pray over.

#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.

 

About Faith #151-200

About Faith #151-200

#151 Faith in the Word will fix anything. You can experience turnaround by standing in faith.

#152 Jairus received exactly what he had spoken in faith—When Jesus lays His hands on his daughter, she shall be healed and live (Mk 5:22-24).

#153 Woman with issue of blood received exactly what she said in faith—when she touches Jesus’ clothes, she shall be made whole (Mk 5:25-29).

#154 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (it will not be late). Habakkuk 2:3

#155 The just shall live by “HIS” faith (Habakkuk 2:4). You can be carried for a while by the faith of others, but eventually you need to develop your own faith to receive from God whatever you need.

#156 Six “I”s of faith: 1) I believe 2) I will 3) I take it 4) I have it 5) I thank You 6) I forgive. Kenneth Copeland

#157 Faith … In consistency, lies the power. Gloria Copeland

#158 Faith … Whatever you say consistently will come to pass, whether good or bad. Life and death are in the power of the tongue (Prov 18:21).

#159 Faith … Patience keeps you steady until the answer comes.

#160 Faith … Faith does not work in an unforgiving heart. Unforgiveness shuts the door to the blessings of God.

#161 Faith … Faith is activated, energized, expressed and works through love (Galations 5:6 Amplified).

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

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

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

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

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

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

#168 Faith … 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 (Num 13:26-30). He declared that they (the Israelites) were well able to take the land of Canaan.

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

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

#174 Faith … 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 4 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 4 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.

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

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

#181 Faith … 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 Faith … 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 is 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 Faith … 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.

#194 Faith hears the Word, acts on the Word, and holds fast to the Word.

#195 Faith comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). If you don’t know what God says about a matter, then you don’t have faith for it.

#196 Faith must be based on the Word of God … then you know what God is saying, you say what God says, and then blessings come to pass.

#197 The force of patience undergirds your love, helping you to have forbearance. It undergirds your faith, keeping you from fainting. Patience undergirds your joy, keeping you from losing your joy when under pressure.

#198 Unbelief will shut the doors on the promises of God.

#199 Faith does not deny facts, but faith changes facts.

#200 Faith in you will create an expectation to change your situation.

#127 Faith … The good news of the Gospel manifests the power of God when it is believed and acted upon.

#128 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive (TAKE) them, and you will have them. Mark 11:24

#129 The word “receive” in Mark 11:24, in the Greek, means “to take; to claim; to sieze; to lay hold of; to take what belongs to you.“

#130 Faith … When you pray, take your answer. Then stand on the Word until the answer manifests. Give God thanks and praise for the answer.

#131 Faith … You have to be bold in your faith, because the devil comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).

#132 How do you get faith to be healed? You hear the Word of God concerning His will for you to be healed. You receive and take it.

#135 Faith … Faith is active when you walk in love.

#136 Faith … You can’t mistreat people and have working faith.

#142 You’re going to have to believe in the Word of God and step out in faith in order to give God something to work with on your behalf.

#143 Faith … Faith brings things into materiality.

#144 Faith … Unbelief is the substance of things you DON’T want to happen. Faith is the substance of things you DO want to happen.

#146 Faith … The older generation, except Joshua and Caleb, of the Children of Israel could not possess their promised land because of unbelief.

#147 When you obey God and His Word, you walk in The Blessing (Deut 28:1-14). Disobedience causes one to come under the curse (vs 15-68).

#148 The Bible records so many instances where God does the impossible when we dare to step into supernatural faith.
