Are You Living in Victory or Limping Around Like a Pitiful Orphan? [Part III]

Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Galatians 2:20 (KJV) 20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Faith is a fruit of your reborn spirit and it needs to grow by feeding it the Word of God. We also see that the faith we have is actually the faith of Jesus. How awesome is that!

Philemon 1:6 (KJV) 6  That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:3 (KJV) 3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

These awesome scriptures show us that in order for our faith to become effective, we have to acknowledge all the good things God has put in us. That’s a mouthful in itself! But when you do acknowledge those good things, it will build your confidence and strengthen your faith, setting you up to do awesome things for God! Go for it!

The bottom line is that the God-kind of faith is your positive response to what God has already given you through His grace. It’s believing what He’s already done and acting on it.  Notice I John 5:14-15:

1 John 5:14-15 (KJV) 14  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:15  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Romans 1:17b (KJV) 17  … The just shall live by faith.
