Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Matthew 4:4 (KJV) 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
1 Timothy 4:6 (KJV) 6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
Jesus said that we are to live by every Word that proceeds out of God’s mouth. That’s where we get the spiritual food to feed our spirit and our faith. If we don’t feed on God’s Word, we’ll be malnourished and on shaky ground and easy prey for the enemy!
God’s Word is nourishment to our spirit and our faith and therefore, we must develop a hunger and a thirst for His Word if we’re ever going to be strong in faith and able to move mountains. Remember to spend most of your time in the New Testament because that’s we live today. We have a New Covenant bought and paid for by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Romans 1:17b (KJV) 17 … The just shall live by faith.
Living by faith is to be the way of life for Christians. He’s already given us His faith but now it’s up to us to exercise and develop it so that we can be the powerhouses He’s called us to be.
If righteousness is going to reign in this earth, it’s going to come from God flowing through His people. God wants to move in this earth realm but He has set it up to do so through the believers. The catch comes when we realize that the only way He will do this is through our operating in faith. He speaks to us through His Word, using it to show us the path to take.
John 15:7 (KJV)
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Abiding in Jesus is abiding in His Word. It’s not just visiting once in a while but letting the Word take up residence in you so that when you need it, it comes out with power! That’s when we see the miracles and supernatural signs and wonders. Praise the Lord of Glory!
