Have you ever wished you had more faith when faced with an overwhelming challenge?
Many Christians have. But did you know that every born again believer has been given a measure of faith? It would have been impossible to be born again otherwise! (See Romans 12:3; Luke 17:5-6; Ephesians 2:8) As a Christian, there is no need to despair or to run around seeking faith when faced with a challenge. The faith in you simply needs to be activated.
Hebrews 4:2 (KJV) says the gospel preached to the Israelites did not bring profit them – produced no result – because it was ‘not mixed with faith in them…’ Notice that the issue was not a lack of faith; rather, the word of God did not engage with faith that was already present in them.
How is the faith in you activated? By speaking God’s word. That is, your faith in God is stirred up when you agree with him by saying the same thing as him, even when everything and everyone around you disagree. All the symptoms say it is an incurable disease, but you say, ‘By the stripes of Jesus I am completely healed.’ (Isaiah 53:5) Why? Because that is what God said about the situation and he always tells the truth!
