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
