Faith, Faith Comes by the Word of God, Healing, Miracles

The Substance for Our Faith for Miracles is Knowing This

the substance for your faith for miracles

There is a “Sovereignty of God” man-made doctrine in Christendom that is widely misused and is taught in such a way that God is random and picks and chooses whom to bless, whom to heal, according to some random, mysterious, unable-for-man-to-know will of His, etc.

But the Word says God is a God of order, and in His Sovereignty, He chose to bind Himself to His Word and promises and is not random at all. But it’s not what I say, or man says, it’s what God says.

What does God, our good Father, say?

~ “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him,” (1 John 5:14-15). ~

He wouldn’t say we can ask according to His will and not tell us what His will is. His Word shows us His will. E.g. “By His stripes we were healed (1 Peter 2:24).”; “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19),” and many, many more.

 ~”For You have magnified Your word above all Your name,” (Psalm 138:2). ~

This is a very powerful verse in all its glory and meaning. In His sovereignty, He chose to keep us more than clued in on His will. Not only that but He tells us He places His Word above His name in importance, so we can have confidence in it as a strong and absolutely sure foundation of our faith.

He’s not a willy-nilly God, but a come and seek Me in my Word and you CAN know my will God, and boldly expect to receive according to our faith in It. Not sorry, twist-the-sovereignty-of-God false teachers, God is not random, but good, giving us the greatest substance ever for our faith to bring forth His miracle working power, His Holy Word, full of His express and perfect will for us, His precious children.

~ “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints,” (1 Corinthians 14:33). ~

Thank You, Father, for not leaving us lost and confused without Your Word, and for exalting Your Word above Your name, a Word full of Your will and promises which are ALL yes and amen.

~ “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us,” (2 Corinthians 1:20). ~

This verse is an example of God’s will for ALL His children, not a select, random few. The devil is a liar. But we must believe and not doubt to receive His promises by faith. That’s where the TROUGH US comes in from 2 Corinthians 1:20 that you just read. Our entire walk with God is a faith one. Faith pleases Him and is how we receive His Word and promises for ourselves.

God isn’t sounding quite so random anymore is He?

That widespread, extreme sovereignty of God, man-made false doctrine is hopefully looking as false as it truly is by now, I pray. Again, in His Sovereignty, All Powerfulness, and Most Highly Ranked state in all the universe, He Himself CHOSE to work within His Word for His. He could have chosen to be random, left us without His Holy Word, but He chose to give us full instructions to live by and to KNOW His will.

We either take Him for His Word – we can know His will, ALL His promises are yes and amen OR we can reject His Word and will for ourselves which is what many do because they are ignorant of the Word that says, We are in a spiritual battle and must pray and not give up until we see.

prayer towards miracles

It’s those who persist in prayer, based on the sure foundation of the Word and will of God who see miracles.

So what is the substance for our faith for miracles? 

It’s knowing God’s Word for ourselves in a revelatory way by the Holy Spirit and thus knowing His will. God’s Word makes His will very clear on much with the exception of future plans for each individual.

BUT, we CAN seek Him, surrender our plans into His hands, ask for wisdom and direction and trust Him to direct our steps. Yes, we can ignore Him and His warnings and go our own way too, but we don’t have to.

Read my post, Be a Caleb – What giants? I don’t see any giants?, for an example of how because we have free will, we can reject God’s Word and will for ourselves through unbelief and how God sees rejecting His Word as rejecting Him because He is His Word. He loves us no matter what, of course but lets us choose His will or not.

I pray this post blessed you, and if so, please comment, like, and share. All glory to the Holy Spirit for teaching me and leading me into all truth regarding what I shared.

God’s People are Called to Live in Perfect Peace

perfect peace

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

ISAIAH 26:3

God’s Word says we can live in perfect peace because our mind is fixed on Him, because we trust in Him.

This means and entails….

He IS His Word (John 1:1; 14), so we fix our mind on it alone in every situation. As His children, we are called to be in the daily, regular process of getting to know His Word more and more, allowing it to renew our minds and build our faith. Thus, whatever comes, we can stay in perfect peace because we are able to take Him for His Word above what we see.

We can come to a place where we know His Word well enough to apply it to every circumstance because we have quick access to it as it’s become rooted in our hearts and minds. We don’t have to be anxious for anything or shaking in our Holy Spirit filled bodies every time something is thrown our way if we know our Father through His Word and choose to commune with His Spirit.

Over the past nearly two years, the Lord, through His Word, has deeply rooted in me what He says about healing, but lately, I have been stressing about a “seeming” threat to my finances. The other day, I said, “Enough, this is not Your will, Lord,” then, I stirred up the Word within me and spoke it out loud and said this is what the truth is and that He is my Source and that He will supply all the needs of me and my son according to His riches and glory [Philippians 4:19]. Period. Amen. He cannot lie.

So, I will continue to apply His Word, believing and not doubting, regarding this situation until all the “wobbliness” to my faith about it is gone, knowing all will be well. This doesn’t mean I do nothing in the natural but that I pray about it all so He leads me and I stay Spirit led about it every step of the way.

Be Bold, Simply Take God for His Word, and Magnify it Above Every Circumstance – Sun Stand Still – Joshua 10:12-14

Sun Stand Still

Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:

Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. – Joshua 10:12-14

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. – 2 Chronicles 16:9

God’s eyes are looking throughout the whole earth for hearts who are loyal to Him and take Him for His Word.

Prayer

Father, by Your Holy Spirit, we loose Holy Spirit boldness to Your people. Grace them with faith that moves mountains. We believe, help, Lord, any unbelief. Let the words of our mouths magnify You above all things, all sickness, all disease, every trial and difficulty. Let us magnify and praise You and praise You for Your Word to pray for all matters concerning us in Jesus’ name, amen.

How God Equips Us to Muster Up the Mustard-sized Faith We Need to Receive

God equips us for faith-2

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

1 JOHN 5:14-15

If we ask anything “according to His will.” God is a good Father. He’s not a fake out God. He’s not going to tell us to ask according to His will and not tell us what His will is.

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

There’s no way around it. Want more faith? You must keep the Word before you and feed on it regularly.

Why does God say more Word equals more faith?

The more you know His Word, the more you know His will, character, and that He is a good Father. That good comes from Him, and evil comes from Satan.

The more you know these things, the more faith you’ll have because you’ll be full of the knowledge of His will thus infused with living and active confidence and boldness to pray like 1 John 5:14-15 (above).

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7).

Knowing His Word for yourself, not second hand through a preacher or a teacher of the Word, is key to faith and receiving from God according to His Word. His Word is true. He cannot lie.

My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22). 

His Word is alive does the work in our lives and in our faith, but because we have free will, we get to choose whether or not to pay attention to His Words, keep them in front of our eyes daily, abide in them, listen to them, study them, etc.

To keep His Word ever near is to give you life and health to your physical body. What an incredible gift and revelation!

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,” (Hebrews 4:12).

God’s Word is like nothing you’ll ever read or behold. It is literally alive, spiritually alive because it is Jesus, Himself. If you haven’t already, pray you can receive this truth as revelation knowledge. Your faith cannot be left unchanged when you take in the very Word God equates Himself with.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,”…”And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth,” (John 1:1;14).

He IS His Word. Let His Word consume you and fill you with increasing faith and a deep revelation of His goodness, mercy, compassion, and love.

“But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4:4).

The way I see all these verses put together is that His Word is life to us in every way, and we truly can’t live the way our good Father desires us to without living by it and knowing it for ourselves.

So, we can be saved and live a life far below His will and desires for us because we never chose to take Him for His Word to get to know Him. To know His Word is to know His will. To know Him and His will increases our faith more and more, so we can pray and receive our desires by faith.

And guess what?

The more we know His Word, the more our desires line up with His because no one can be left unchanged by God when His Word truly abides or is deeply rooted in them. And what will we desire with our ever increasing faith? To heal the sick, raise the dead, love, be blessed to be a blessing to the poor, widows, and orphans, etc.

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you'” (Matthew 17:20).

His Word is the only cure for unbelief. And with that mustard seed sized faith, nothing will be impossible.

More Word. More faith. 

It’s our choice.

P.S. God is SO good, as we are going through things, He will lead you to the promises you need in His Word to stand on and take Him for. But His best is to seek the God who is His Word with all our hearts.
