Many people don’t feel they have enough faith to believe for their needs to be met or their healing. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). Many are trying to believe harder, but they aren’t renewing their mind in the finished work of Jesus. They know what the Word says but they’re not making it personal.
Last week we asked, how do you grow your faith? The more you get into the Word—search out the scriptures that encourage and speak to you of your new, born-again identity in Jesus—the more your faith will respond to the Word and grow in your heart. So, by taking those words, those scriptures and planting them in your heart, repeating them in your mind, and out loud you’ll hear them. The more you do, the more you’ll believe the truth of what God has provided for you in Jesus. As you do, you’ll begin to empty old beliefs that do not line up with what Jesus accomplished for you because your heart and mind are renewed. It will be easy for you to believe God, and that’s when you’ll see your faith growing.
When you don’t know what is yours, how can you have faith for something when you’re not sure if God will come through? You can’t. That’s why persuading your heart of the truth of the finished work of Jesus will encourage you, strengthen you, and allow you to move into faith, easily believing what God has said.
If you’re not seeing the reality of God’s promises in Jesus in your life, start persuading your heart by getting into the Word and finding out what is already yours through Jesus. The Word will persuade your heart of your true spiritual identity. Then from knowing who you are in Christ and what is yours, you can operate in faith, believing His promises, His Word for you.
