Faith, Hope and Encouraging Word By Jeanne Theriault


Faith of God vs Faith in God 

Faith of God comes when we believe like God himself believes. The faith of God is increase when we hear the Word of God spoken.

Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes by hearing the message and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

The bible says we all have a measure of faith  and  a gift of faith.

Romans 12:3 For by grace given me I say to everyone of you. Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith and this not from yourselves it is the gift of God.

Paul lived by both. Paul had the basic measure which we all have the gift of faith.
Paul believed what God believed about him and his circumstances surrounding his life.

To walk by faith we need to inquire of the Holy Spirit.
And listen in His still small voice . This opens us up to the impossible miracles happens in the impossible. For God believes in the impossible in all situations

Simon the Fisherman
Luke 5:1-7 We see Jesus challenges the disciples by first preaching to them all in order to increase there faith. Then he tells them to do something , he asks them to obey him by seeing the miracles He sees by faith. But the disciples are doubting even after hearing the Word preached .

When we hear the Word  our faith is build up, then we walk in obedience to the Word

God wants us to see in the supernatural like God sees things
No matter their fear and doubt they did obey and cast the net and Jesus did a miracle and filled the boat, they found the grace of God in great measure that Simon Peter repeated and Jesus gave him a new purpose and destiny.
Luke 5:8-11
When we obey we will tap into his desire to bless us and move us into a greater purpose and destiny which it will activate the faith of God

The women with the issue of blood
Mathew 9:20-22
Noticed in this passage she said to herself, if only I could touch His cloak I will be healed? Here we see her faith in action and Jesus saw her faith and healed her cause she new the heart of God,

We can’t explain this level of faith, but it is a gift that comes to our soul from God
The word touched in the Greek means to attach oneself or fasten to set free to. The women attached herself in faith first to Jesus . In her soul she believed that he was the Messiah the deliver, and the healer and that he wants to do this for her.
So this faith of God then lead to an act when she physically touched him and the fire of God went through her and healed her.
God is believing the impossible for you and wants you to believe so you can receive a blessing that he has for you.

When you believe the Word of God and act out in what you believe then your faith will reflect on what you do. It’s an attitude of the heart being a doer of the Word. Faith in action gives you strength, hope and stability. Faith conquers all fears. Faith is not just a word but a way of lifestyle.

God’s word comes into action when we walk by faith, we need not question his promises. We need to exercise our faith to get results from the Word. Just like the women with the issue of blood. She moved in her faith and she received her healing .

1 John 5:14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears us whatever we asked we know that we have what we asked of him.    

Be encouraged and blessed by the Word of God
