Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
There’s revelation in every Word of God. Actually, there are layers and layers of revelation and insight in every scripture but how do we get it out? One way is to pray before you read His Word and ask the Lord for revelation and insight. Praying in tongues is really the best way to go before you read the Word. It sets you up for divine insight. And since the Holy Spirit is in you and He’s the Author, He can reveal the Word to you.
You’ll find that even after you’ve read the same scripture over and over, there will be a time when all of a sudden something will pop out and you’ll wonder why you never saw that before. That’s revelation knowledge coming forth. And it’s so exciting!
That’s why you must never say, “I’ve heard that scripture or teaching so many times!” There’s always more to know because we just don’t know everything and never will this side of Heaven. In fact, we’ll be using our faith throughout all eternity because God is a faith God and we’re made in His image. Since He’ll be using His faith throughout all eternity, so will we. We’re in boot camp!
Continuing about how we get faith, know that faith has to be fed and developed and that comes by feeding on His Word and exercising our faith by using it.
Faith is like a muscle. And just as muscles have to be exercised or they’ll atrophy, so does our faith have to be exercised or it will become weak and non-productive.
If you wonder why some Christians are depressed, discouraged, and defeated, it’s because their faith is weak. They need to feed it with God’s Word and start using it to be the overcomers God has ordained them to be.
