Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
As you can see, faith is the way we please Gad and access His realm. Or, as I like to say, the power realm! It doesn’t matter what we do if it isn’t done in faith. It does not impress God. And there a lot of people doing a lot of things that are not in faith, trying to please God, and then wonder why their prayers don’t work.
Since Jesus already the price for our complete salvation, there is nothing else for us to do. We don’t have to add to what He has already done. And sad to say, many are trying to gain God’s approval by their works.
Jesus has done a complete work and now our part is to receive what He’s already accomplished.
That’s how it is with healing. We can’t do anything to make healing more available than it already is. It’s already in the available in the spirit realm – the God realm – but we need to use our faith to access it and draw it into the physical realm where it manifests in our bodies.
1 Peter 2:24 (KJV) 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
As I’ve said, the price for our healing has already been paid but if it’s not mixed with faith, we can’t get it.
Hebrews 4:1-2 (KJV) 1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.
2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
As you see, the Israelites didn’t profit from God’s Word because they didn’t mix faith with it. And it’s the same with us. We must believe that what God has said in His Word, He means. And then we need to stand on that Word and believe that it will work for us. That’s how we mix faith with His promises.
