FAITH RESPONDS TO THE WORD!
Faith doesn’t ask “how?” “How do I get the money?” “How can I say I’m healed when I’m still in pain?” These are questions and responses borne out of unbelief. Faith responds only to the Word! Faith is doing what God tells you to do without asking Him how. So when He says “You have everything you need for that project you’re working on,” your faith-response should be “Thank you Lord Jesus! I have everything I need.”
The Scriptures show us examples of men and women who leapt on the truth of God’s Word and received their desired miracle. For example, there’s the touching story in Luke 7 of the Roman centurion whose servant was at the point of death. When he heard that Jesus was on His way to heal his servant, he sent a message to the Master saying “You don’t need to come here Lord, just say the Word and my servant will be healed.” That was a remarkable faith-response that got the Master’s attention, and the Bible says He marveled at the centurion’s great faith.
On another occasion, a woman came and pleaded with Jesus to heal her daughter who was tormented by a devil (Mark 7:25). The Master said to her, “…go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter” (Mark 7:29). That was all the woman needed to hear; she took the Master at His Word, and acted on what He said. Her spirit got a hold of that word and she got her miracle! This is what you must do today if you need a miracle. Take God at His Word. Respond in faith on the basis of His Word to you, knowing that He’s able to do exceeding, abundantly above what your mind can fathom.
Understand that faith is active and not passive; it’s the response of your spirit to the Word of God. In other words, faith depends on the Word as basis and assurance for action! Faith acts now because it has taken possession. That’s why the Bible says, “…faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone” (James 2:17). That means faith without corresponding action is dead. Your faith works when you respond to God’s Word by putting it to work in your life.
