Today’s word is from Romans 10:17
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
FAITH comes from hearing the Word of God, so faith is a FRUIT of the Word.
Faith is a fruit from a Word of God tree. All Bible faith comes from the Word of God, in fact the Word of God has faith imbedded into it, so when the Word tells us to do something or to live a certain way, the faith to do it is imparted together with the instruction through the Word.
A believer cannot have faith if he or she has not first received a Word from the Lord.
The Lord speaks through Scripture, directly to our hearts by the Spirit, by being led by the Spirit, through prophecy and basically, any means He chooses, but the bottom line is, you will not be able to operate in true Bible faith without first receiving a Word from the Lord.
The Bible says in Romans 12:3, “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.”
Don’t think so highly of yourself that you assume that you are doing something in faith when God has not told you to do it. Your measure of faith is LIMITED to what the Lord has told you to do. You cannot do EVERYTHING, unless you intend doing it in your own strength.
Once you have received the Word of the Lord regarding something, the FAITH to do it comes with the Word.
You will still need to stir up your faith and release it as you step out and put action to the Word, but ALL of the faith that you will ever need for your assignment is in the Word that you received.
Wait upon the Lord each day…
Ask Him to speak to you, ask Him to lead you by His Spirit, meditate upon His Word, and as you do, He will speak, He will lead, and when He does, He will give you the FAITH to do whatever He says, then all you have to do is use it as you step out!
