What Faith Does

          Faith brings Victory. Faith heals. Faith saves. Faith delivers.  Faith energizes and activates the Word.  Faith elevates the believer into the realm of the su­pernatural.  Faith quenches all the fiery darts of the devil.  Faith pleases God because it puts us in line with God’s pur­pose.  Faith changes facts.  Faith negates The Lie.  Faith sees.  Faith expects.  Faith waits patiently.  Faith receives.  Faith rests.

Hindrances to Faith

          Remember that Satan comes “immediately” to take away the Word-Seed before it has time to take root. 

And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.  Mark 4:15    

          It is easier for Satan to steal a seed or dig up a seed than it is for him to pull up a tree.  Satan is a thief and a robber.   Here are some real hindrances to great faith:

  • Seeing no evidence.
  • Having no feeling.
  • Considering facts and turning to human rea­soning.
  • Failures we have experienced in the past.
  • Dead religion, cold churches, denomina­tional doc­trine,
  • unbelieving preachers and teachers.
  • Our fear of man, relatives, influential friends, and what people may say.
  • Refusing the Gifts of the Spirit
  • Ignorance.
  • Unrenewed mind.
  • Negative mouth.
  • Doubt and wavering.
  • Love of the world. 
  • Impatience

          Strife, bitterness, unforgiveness, sarcasm, gossip, jealousy, envy, unkindness, anger, griping, self-pity, pride, hypocrisy, uncaring, no compassion, no love, greed, stinginess, egotism, no disci­pline, sense-ruled, appetite-ruled,  sight-ruled;   any of  the above will prevent our faith from developing.  They are hindrances to faith and they can only be dealt with and overcome by our deter­mination and prayerful effort. 

          The Revelation of Faith and the continual opera­tion of this revelation in the life of the Believer is essential if one is to Reign in Life.
