Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
I want to write to you about ways to generate faith. We know faith is important but how do we bring it into existence or perhaps when it seems like its getting exhausted, how do we replenish it, there are five ways I know, and will love to share them with in you.
The first is by hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17, ‘So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God‘ The Word of God is alive and it speaks, God speaks to us through His word. There are two levels of insight you get from hearing the Word of God one is information while the other is revelation. While information leaves you where it met you, revelation set you in motion.
Revelation is seeing what has been said not only hearing it. In revelation, you can see it and even picture it in your mind. Until Revelation is observed, faith cannot be seen. Nobody doubts what he sees. Turn the scripture into picture, if you can picture it, you will capture it. It takes a massive and aggressive injection of the word for faith to be instilled. Keep hearing the Word and picturing the Word until that unbelief disappears.
The second way to generate faith is by fellowship or relationship with God.Act 2:42 says, ‘ And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.’ When you are sold out for God, you will come to a point where you know Him so well that you will not doubt Him. The more time you spend with Him, the more you know Him. Lack of confidence is lack of knowledge of God.
Men and women of God are people of deep communion with God. The more you know Him the more you trust Him. your love for Him will make it hard or difficult to doubt Him. Every genuine love is built on trust. When you love somebody you will like to spend time with Him. The more time you spend with Him, the more you know Him. Every relationship is built on communication. Nothing strengthen a relationship like communication. The enemy cannot step in until there is a break in communication, your knowledge of Him will determine your exploits on earth.
God bless you, will continue with the third point in the next article.
