With faith believing is knowing without having to see. Faith is not “seeing is believing.” “But without faith it is imposssible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”( Hebrews 11:6).“Blessed are they that have not seen,and yet have believed.”(John 20:29b).“Whom having not seen, ye love:In whom though now ye see him not,yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: (I Peter 1:8).“For we walk by faith not by sight:” (II Corinthians 5:7).When you pray for something, you need to have faith and believe it is done, even if you don’t instantly see it.“For verily I say unto you,That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea:and shall not doubt in his heart,but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass:he shall have whatsoever he saith.Therefore I say unto you,what things soever ye desire,when ye pray,believe that you receive them, and ye shall have them.” ( Mark 11:23,24). This is the kind of faith that God likes to see, and that he wants us to have.The word believe comes from the Greek word “Pisteuo” which means to take in. You have to take in faith into your heart, and really believe and not doubt no matter what,even if you never actually see it happen in this life time. You just know it is done no matter how long it takes to actually see it in the physical realm. You just know it is done by faith in the spiritual realm, and it is done now by faith, because you believe what Jesus said. You’ve got to stand on the word, and quote the terms of the contract (The Bible) to the contract maker (God), in the name of Jesus Christ, “The Only Begotten Son of God.”But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:6&7). Don’t be wishy washy, and on the fence with your prayers if you want to get them answered and past the ceiling. If you want to increase your faith get more into the Word. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17). Be like the Centurion in the Bible.“And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.” ( Matthew 8:5-13). Doubts are from the devil. They grow and spread like a cancer. Doubts are even contagious to others, like Zacharias the Priest who doubted the Angel Gabriel’s Word from God, that his wife would have a child when she was well stricken in age. Because he doubted he was not able to speak, until John the Baptist was born.(Luke 1:3-24). John the Baptist ( Zacharias son) after hearing the audible voice of God saying ” this is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” When he baptized Jesus and afterwards doubted that Jesus was the one that should come, and sent his disciples to ask Jesus if he was the one prophesied as the Messiah to come. Jesus was so upset that John doubted him that he went out and did many miracles raising the dead ,giving sight to the blind, healing the Lepers, and many other miracles. He then told John’s disciples to go back and tell John what they saw. Jesus said that John the Greatest of all Prophets, who was to announce the Coming Of The Lord would be the least in The Kingdom of Heaven because he doubted. You see how serious doubts are to God? It seems that John was effected by the doubts of his father Zacharias. Don’t let it happen to you ! Fight the devils lies and doubts with the Word like Jesus did. Study and get stronger in the Word eveyday !
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
