Word for Today:  July 13

Where do we begin in our quest to develop aggressive faith?

First, we need to know that we have FAITH.  We have it because God says we have it.  God has given to every man “the measure of faith…”

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.  Rom. 12:3

The Word declares:

for by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it (faith) is the gift of God…  Eph 2:8.

Faith is a Gift.  Faith is a Gift from God given to you.  Faith is the ability to really believe God.  It is revelation.  It is in the heart.  It is in the innermost part of our being.  It is resolve.  It is dependence.  It is confidence.  It is relying on.  It is trusting.  It is seeing the invisible.  It is holding the intangible.  It is reaching out into nothing and holding on until nothing becomes something.  It is as­sur­ance.  It is a certainty.  It is REAL.

Second, we determine to develop it. We make a definite decision to develop and increase our faith.  Faith is developed by hearing the Word.

Faith cometh (groweth) by hearing and hearing by the Word of God…  Rom 10:17.

Faith is devel­oped by being around faith.  Like begets like.  Praise, worship, rejoicing, singing, dancing, shouting, clapping, running, leaping… all these, when done in the Name of Jesus, will develop faith.

Faith is developed by the preaching of the uncompromised Word of God.  As you read these words, your faith is being built up.  You will be stronger after you read this than you were before you read it.

  • Faith is developed by doing the Word.
  • Faith is developed by saying the Word.
  • Faith is developed by and through Love.
  • Faith is developed by making right decisions.
  • Faith is developed by remembering past victories.
  • Faith is developed by “keeping the flesh under.” 1Co 9:27
  • Faith is developed through intimacy with God.

Aggressive faith moves mountains
