Keys to Biblical Faith
It is impossible to please the Lord without faith
Heb. 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
The clue here is seeking Mim with faith and not allowing doubt and unbelief enter or rule your mind.
Biblical References Faith
It is important to walk and talk and live in biblical faith. Biblical faith is an absolute necessity to receive anything from God. Could that be the possible reason for unanswered prayers?
Biblical faith is simply believing that God meant what He Said.
Are you standing for loved one for salvation? Is there doubt and unbelief because of looking at the natural and not the supernatural or what you cannot see happening?
Biblical Verses Faith: Jesus said, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24
Faith is believing without evidence of anything happening but believing, because of who our father in heaven is, the creator of the universe, is working on our behalf. Doubt and unbelief is a big inhibitor.
How about giving up or murmuring and complaining to God?
Faith is praising the Lord, after you have prayed to him or made your need known, that it is already done. It is a knowing and a trust in the Father of Heaven.
Enemies of Faith
Satan will come to try to steal and that is where discernment comes into play. Who is talking to you? Is it Satan or God when standing on a promise, or ask God, etc.
Those who do not believe in God can be enemies of faith and sometimes other christians can be enemies of faith through their doubt and unbelief.
The reason you have trouble believing is you don’t want to believe. Did you have an earthly father who made promises but never carried them out and so afraid God will do the same?
How about reasoning it away. Many people are very intellectual and it gets in the way. It might not make sense to them but a person, who is intellectual, needs to clear that thought way of life out and believe.
Biblical Verses Faith: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing the word of God.” Roman 10:17
To stand in faith means to abide in Him. Abiding faith does not mean church membership but those living in the Word of God – Abiding Faith.
If your faith is wavering, the best way to combat the doubt and unbelief, is get the word out and stand and declare and decree His word out loud. That can really help build faith.
It is getting in His word of His promises and standing on the promises of God, if it is for salvation of a loved one or standing for healing. Stand and decree His Word to the heavens or meditate on his word – that is abiding in Christ. Christ is the Word according to John 1.
The Kingdom of God
Second is “seeking the Kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matt. 6:33.
We need to seek His direction and plan to carry out the plan of God or ask you have made to how to fulfill it. Many times there are actions we have to do but it takes abiding in Him to know His plan and steps.
Are you seeking answers but still living in your own lust? “Ye ask,a nd receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts,” James 4:3. This is done not in faith.
Those who abide in Christ and His Word abides.
Another Hinderances of Faith is Condemnation – Hindrances to Healing
1 John 3:21-22 “If our heart condemns us not, then we have confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of hm, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”
Until you meet his conditions, keep his commandments, abide in him, then, faith will come to believe. That means healing in your life, standing for something that is important.
God’s power is enough to heal, as well as to save anyone and everybody but his promises is to heal those who keep His commandments and walk in the statutes.
God does heal unbelievers because God is using it to bring them to salvation.
