We are supposed to believe his Word simply because he said so! The Lord wants us to have faith in his Word and not always to have to have a sign. The Word is all the sign you need! Why does God insist that we believe in something we cannot see and cannot feel purely by Faith in his Word? The Lord wants us to trust him just like a little child trusts his parent. It’s because the Lord loves faith. “NOW FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).The word substance comes from the Greek word “Hupostasis,” which means the “Title Deed”. In other words if you have the Title Deed to a property you know that you own it and you can be sure it is yours even if you have never even seen it ! “Without faith it is impossible 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). He loves us because we believe in him just because he said so. It’s a way of showing our love and our confidence in him. Faith really shows that we have love. It’s like a child has to trust a parent even though he doesn’t always understand why he must do this or that. He just has to do it because Daddy said so , and Daddy knows best. It’s a form of love that the child loves his parent and trusts his parents and has confidence in them and takes their word for it. And that’s the way we have to be with the Lord. We should just say to him. “Yes Sir !” And believe it and do it simply because he said so! Trust him and take him at his WORD! “Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29). We can know Jesus better today and be closer to him through the Holy Spirit and faith in his word then the disciples were, who lived and walked with him. IF you want to have stronger faith, get more into the Word. “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possiable to him that believeth. And staightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief” (Mark 9: 23,24). “And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.” (Luke 17: 5). “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17). “Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believeing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls” (I Peter 1:8, 9).You can’t see faith , but you can see what faith can do. “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief” (Matthew 13:58). So if you want the Lord to do mighty works through you, then increase your faith by getting more in the Word. Don’t limit the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. FAITH WILL SEE US THROUGH .

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.
