God has given to every man (Christian) the ‘measure of faith’ that is required to live the Godly life, to experience the power and joy of Christian living. But, for whatever reason, He has given us the choice as to whether we use it or not. Faith is nothing more than the opening up of ones heart to receive everything that God has and that faith comes from spending time in His word, meditating and praying. Jesus said. over and over, in one form or another, “Be it unto you according to your faith.” How much more plain could it be?

The entire universe operates according to physical laws . Mathematically, two plus two equals four. In physics, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. These laws never change. The same can be said for spiritual laws. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6; 23). And the power of Christian living is evidenced in our lives ‘according to our faith’ (stated all through Scripture).

It is acknowledged by almost all students of the Bible that we live in the Laodicean age which is characterized in Revelation chapter 3 as a time of lukewarm churches and believers. To the same degree that Christians have diverted their attention from a personal relationship with the Lord and focused on worldly pursuits (things), our faith in divine healing has diminished until it has virtually disappeared. The same vanishing act can be seen in all spiritual areas of our lives. Those who profess to be believers cannot say with certainty that they know the voice of God. (Jesus said “My sheep know my voice”.) When asked how they know that they are being led by the Holy Spirit, or “what did the Lord say to you in your devotions this morning’ most would be at a loss for words. If we were truly a child of God, shouldn’t we be able to answer these questions definitively and boldly?

Jesus said, “When I return will I find faith?” The question for us is, “Will we be found to have the faith required to be ready?”

Faith is the victory!
Faith is the victory!
Oh, glorious victory,
That overcomes the world…(Faith is the Victory)
