“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom 10:17).
Every believer has received the saving faith. Yet, most of us have not been able to develop our faith to be healed, faith to encounter the miraculous, and the faith to prosper.
When we apply these, we will be able to develop enough faith in the areas of our affliction for the eruption of our testimonies.
1. Place of Research: The quality of our faith is directly determined by the quality of our research on the area of our specific need.
The Bible said, ‘According as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertains unto life and godliness through the KNOWLEDGE of him who has called us unto glory and virtue’ (2 Pet 1:3).
Apparently, this means, the height of power and glory we enjoy as individual believers is dependent on our depth of knowledge. Dig deep!
2. The Place of Repetition: Consider the Romans 10:17 verse. The word ‘hearing’ is written twice. That said, it is also in the present tense. That suggests continuity and repetition.
You have to be exposed to the word of God continuously before your faith in that area would grow enough!
We do not remember all we hear. We have to therefore hear the same message (or read the same book) repetitively before we hit the gusher!
Rest not. Repetition leads to retention. Retention leads to revival. Revival leads to results.
3. The Place of Revelation: You will have to go beyond the literal word in order to encounter the revealed word of the text.
The revealed word is the meaning and purpose of the word. It is the spirit of the word, not just the letter. (2 Cor 3:6).
It is the revealed word that will establish our faith and dominion for the changes we want to see (Matt 16:16-18).
Consider the Apostle Paul. Because he was an ardent student of the revealed word, he had outstanding faith in God (2 Tim 4:13) and miracles followed him everywhere (Acts 19:11).
Receive grace to build you faith. By faith, you will take territories for God! (Heb 11:33).
