Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.”
Have you ever felt like you needed more faith? Have you ever looked at yourself and told yourself that if you just had more faith, you would see your financial breakthrough or healing?
I have good news for you today: faith is not a struggle. The Scriptures show us that the hearing of faith and the works of the law are total opposites (Gal. 3:2, 5). And since the works of the law are about our self-efforts, there is no self-effort in faith.
All over the world each week people are hearing this lie from some preachers: “There’s nothing wrong with God, nothing wrong with His Word, so there must be something wrong with you!”
Every time that is preached, God’s people are being disqualified, when the blood of Jesus has already qualified them!
Now, we know that faith is the opposite of the law, and that the more people become self-conscious and the more they look at their self-efforts to receive from the Lord, the weaker their faith becomes.
When those preachers understand God’s grace, they will change their message and say, “There’s nothing wrong with God, nothing wrong with His Word, and guess what? Through the blood of Jesus, there’s nothing wrong with you either!”
Hallelujah! Once we stop pointing out what is wrong with people start telling them what is right with them because of Jesus, faith will be imparted, and they will begin to experience an explosion of God’s empowering presence like never before.
When believers know that they have been made righteous by the blood of Jesus, everything changes in their mind, their heart, their attitude and their lives. When people begin to see more of Jesus; when they begin to become more and more conscious of Jesus having been crucified on their behalf, the barriers to faith just melt away!
Why? Because the more they see what Jesus has done for them; the more they see what Jesus has qualified them for; the more faith springs up within them and the presence and power of Jesus Christ explodes within them. Hallelujah!
You don’t have to wish that you had more faith for whatever miracle you are asking God for right now. You don’t have to try to conjure up more faith.
Simply see Jesus on the cross for you and the faith you need to face any situation or challenge will come into your life. Just look to Jesus and His grace toward you! He is the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2).
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ. The more of Jesus and His love you hear, the more faith rises in your heart.
