If you believe you can even raise the dead, heal the sick and cleanse the leapor. Can you believe that all these are possible in the name of Christ Jesus?
Determined faith will always get God’s attention for His devine intervention. We need dynamic faith that produce result. The sick of the palsy could be miraculously healed by receiving the Word of God from Christ Jesus, because his 4 good friends has determined faith in Jesus our healer and were prepared to do at all cost to get the attention of the son of God as seen in the story told by Mark: 2. 4. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed whereon the sick of the palsy lay. 5. And Jesus seeing their faith saith unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins are forgiven.
The woman with the problem of blood got healed for she kept on saying if I only touch His garment I will be restored to good health as depicted in Mark: 5. 29. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague. Mark: 5. 34. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
And also in the story of a centurion who he asked Jesus for help to save his dying servant and the centurion had strong faith in the power of healing through Christ Jesus as showned in Matthew: 8. 8. And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 10. And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
As Christ follower, we need to be forceful, determined and zealous to claim and take God’s kingdom and power that is bestowed from High. Going after the prized of God’s promise we will with intense and firm grip on faith and living confession of the Word of God as reasoned by Jesus’s apostle in Matthew: 11. 12. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and men of violence take it by force.
Furthermore, we also need to have zealous faith and fight a good fight with God until the end as taught by Jesus’s apostle as in 1 Timothy: 6. 12. Fight the good fight of the faith, lay hold on the life eternal, whereunto thou wast called, and didst confess the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. And also in 1 Corinthians: 9. 26. I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air. So to Jesus what kind of faith that is missing from His followers? According to Him it is that of determined faith as queried by Luke: 18. 8. I say unto you, that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? And again it is described as holding to with a pure conscience in 1 Timothy: 3. 9. holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
Faith is something we receive in our hearts, where our faith becomes fruitful in our life. Faith empowers us to help us gain mastery of our life. Whereas the finite wisdom and knowledge of men alone leads to greed, lust, controlled desires, self centered around worldly money and materials, suffering and bondage as charged in 1 Corinthians: 2. 5. that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. And faith in God also enable us to become victorious to overcome the world as said by 1 John: 5. 4. For whatsoever is begotten of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that hath overcome the world, [even] our faith.
How does faith works to empower us? Because faith converts the Word into power, the raw power that nothing can stop it. Romans: 1. 16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. As witnessed in the Holy Bible when Jesus heals and He indeed does good job and never a partial healing. Can you have faith that God and the Son of man has indeed gone before us and finished all that is needed in our lives? As told by Mark: 9. 22. And oft-times it hath cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23. And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. And nothing is ever impossible to God; so is nothing will be impossible to us, if only we have determined faith as in John: 14. 12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.
We must have unstaggering faith that is unwavering and waxed strong through and until God’s promises comes to past as described in Romans: 4. 20. yet, looking unto the promise of God, he wavered not through unbelief, but waxed strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21. and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
The bigger the door of faith, the more the adversaries we must overcome on the other side of the door as portrayed in 1 Corinthians: 16. 9. for a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. Because Jesus Christ lives in us, we must be bold, forceful like the lion of Judah and be determined to tap into the faith of God as in Proverbs: 30. 30. The lion, which is mightiest among beasts, And turneth not away for any.
Furthermore, there has to be a rouse up the faith in us like a lion’s whelp as depicted in Genesis: 49. 8. Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise: Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; Thy father’s sons shall bow down before thee. 9. Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, thou art gone up: He stooped down, he couched as a lion, And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up? If we want the lion nature to rise up, we need to be intoxicated with the wine of the Holy Spirit and the pure milk of the Word of God as portrayed in Genesis: 49. 12. His eyes shall be red with wine, And his teeth white with milk. We therefore need the wine of prayer to drunken us through our continuous prayer in the Holy Spirit as told in 1 Samuel: 1. 12. And it came to pass, as she continued praying before Jehovah, that Eli marked her mouth. 13. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. Rest assured when we have the wine of vision, God has gone before the vision and He will back it up.
