"How Faith Comes" pt. 15
May you receive more and more covenant grace and peace in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ the Anointed Savior!
When faith comes from having received the Word of God that the Holy Spirit causes to come alive to you, then you will get your eyes off of yourself and your limitations. You will look only to Jesus. The light of revelation causes you to see the unlimited nature of God. Knowing that you are His child whom He created in His image and likeness, you see and understand that His unlimited nature is your unlimited nature. The result is that barriers are destroyed and hindrances are removed. That sounds like the anointing at work (Isaiah 10:27). The force of faith brings divine strength to your spirit and your soul. Now you are free to do things that previously you could not or would not do.
Hebrews chapter 11 is an outline of several men and women who lived by faith. As a result, they all accomplished what was humanly impossible. One thing that they all had in common is that they heard, received, and responded to the word that God spoke to them. So what does the Bible say about God's voice?
"The voice of the Lord is powerful" (Psalm 29:4). The Holy Spirit is the one who brings God's Word and His voice to you with the power - the anointing - that removes every burden and destroys every yoke. Great men and women of God throughout all the ages have heard His voice and received His power. That humility and yielding to His Presence strengthened them to overcome huge obstacles and do the impossible.
God does not show favoritism or partiality (Romans 2:11). What all these men and women of faith accomplished when they heard, received, and responded to the voice of the Lord, my God will do the same and much more in your life. So become developed in hearing, receiving, and yielding to the voice of the Lord.
Be courageous! Be strong! Do everything in love! Jesus is returning soon!
Go with God (Love), and God (Love) will show everyone that He is with you!
