Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)

The LORD God withholds nothing from those reconciled unto His family by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus. That is, sons & daughters of God by the blood of Jesus receive wisdom & revelation in the Word of God through the person of the Holy Spirit, Who dwells within. The Ascension of Jesus the Christ made way for the right now Ministry of the Holy Spirit on Earth. Those reconciled unto the Family of God by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus experience no difficulty in applying faith required for salvation (Romans 10:9-10). For righteousness or right standing by the grace of Abba Father is through faith (Romans 9:30). And those who receive salvation are commanded to continue walking or living by faith (Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11; Hebrews 10:38).  

Why? Because the promises of God manifest through faith (Romans 4:16) and the steadfastness that involves the good fruit of patience which undergirds faith (James 1:2-4; Hebrews 6:12). A whisper of satan promotes the idea that patience exemplifies weakness, but the Living Word told us that there is no truth in the devil (John 8:44); faith and patience are power twins. As one man-of-God wrote, “The power of patience is a working power. When faith has a tendency to waver, it is patience that comes to faith’s aid to make it stand.1   Nothing in God’s Word including the good fruit that the called-out ones are to produce has anything to do with weakness (Galatians 5:22-23; Colossians 1:11-13; John 15:1-8). For when we stay in-step with the LORD God, we are staying in-step with the One who is Omnipresent and Omniscient and Omnipotent. To use “the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3) received at the onset of salvation for whatsoever is desired and/or needful involves getting the promise thereof.  As another man-of-God succinctly relays: “faith for the promise is in the promise”.2   For example, faith for healing is in God’s promises for healing. Therefore we,

  1. Get Scripture specific to healing
  2. Read and meditate healing Scripture

Why? Because the Word of God tells us how to develop “the measure of faith” given: “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of GodRomans 10:17 (NKJV). Therefore, we read and study and meditate the Word of God. “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaksMatthew 12:34 (NKJV). Such speaks to both the good as well as the bad that a person may either purposely or unintentionally speak. (Ever heard someone “slip” and say a curse word [cuss]? Akin to the name of an old cartoon character – Quickdraw McGraw, they were “ready” to speak it because it was already in there and ready to go! That is, cursing or cussing’ was laid-up in their heart because time was spent doing it.) Therefore, those of the Family of God are strongly advised, yea commanded (anything God recommends or tells us to “do” is a beneficial command) to store-up God’s Word in the heart – the fertile soil of the reborn or re-created spirit which necessarily contributes to the renewal of the soul (i.e., intellect, will, emotions). For such facilitates our readiness to speak the incorruptible Word of God. Therefore we,  

  1. Confess Scripture

Faith in keeping with the Word of God in the way of God works! God the Father sent Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing to show us how we were created to operate by the power of God before the fall of man. Therefore, the Lord Jesus only did and spoke as He heard of Abba Father (John 5:19 & 8:26b,28,38 & 12:49-50 & 14:10,24b). Confessing God’s Word on a daily basis and throughout the day, enables (God’s) super (on our) natural. Glory to Abba Father, with thanksgiving in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
