6 Things You Should Know About Faith

1. Faith or confidence comes through information; you don’t struggle to have faith.

You don’t try to have faith; knowledge is a default faith generator. When you have knowledge about something, you can trust it.

Faith must have substance, and that substance is the word of God. When you know you are confident. That confidence in someone you know is faith.

 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC)

2. Faith is not an instrument you pick up when you need it and put away when you’re done.

Faith comes by hearing… It’s not a one-off; you have to continue hearing

You must continually pay attention to the word of God. 

Your faith is your persuasion, conviction, assurance, and fidelity to God. It is on continuous charge when you are plugged into the word of God.

Never doubt what God is doing in your life because you are not seeing it physically.

A believer is one who always believes.

But before people can pray to the Lord for help, they must believe in him. And before they can believe in the Lord, they must hear about him. And for anyone to hear about the Lord, someone must tell them. 

And before anyone can go and tell them, they must be sent. As the Scriptures say, “How wonderful it is to see someone coming to tell good news!”

But not all the people accepted that good news. Isaiah said, “Lord, who believed what we told them?”

So faith comes from hearing the Good News. And people hear the Good News when someone tells them about Christ.

Romans 10:14-17 (ERV)

3. Faith comes by hearing

Hearing comes before believing; faith is a product of hearing. It doesn’t stand alone.

Doubt comes from insufficient knowledge or information.

Meditate on the word until it begins to speak to your heart.

When you keep hearing about what Jesus Christ has done and His ability to hold you, you become strong and confident.

Be armed with messages that teach the assurance of your salvation, righteousness, and truth. Retain in your consciousness that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead holds you.

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith…

Hebrews 12:2 (ERV)

4. Faith is not necessarily a spiritual term because everyone can believe something they don’t see.

Faith is not just a Bible word; man was wired to believe, because he’s a spirit.

When you call an Uber, you wait patiently for it. How do you know the driver is coming? You can see from the app on your phone.

You believe the information in the app even though you can’t see the physical car.

You have developed faith or trust in the company.

But there is a different kind of faith, and that is faith in Christ.

Our faith comes from the word of God, which is Christ.

The more you know him, the more solid your trust in Him will be.

We have come to know and rely on the love that God has for us. God is love, and the person who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. This is how love has been perfected among us: we will have confidence on the day of judgment because, during our time in this world, we are just like him. There is no fear where love exists. Rather, perfect love banishes fear, for fear involves punishment, and the person who lives in fear has not been perfected in love.

1 John 4:16-18 (ISV)

5. When you find yourself doubtful or fearful, it means you don’t have enough information about the one you say you believe.

If you can believe natural things, why can’t you believe the testimony of the scriptures or the witness in your spirit?

Those who know their God will be strong….

Don’t read or learn scriptures just so you can quote them; read to learn, read to know, and read to become.

Know them enough to live the life of the scriptures.

Until you and the Scriptures have become one, you haven’t known it.

Everything about the Bible expresses the love of God.

Knowledge eliminates fear. Many people don’t want knowledge, but they want the fear to go away.

But when you have knowledge, fear has no place in you.

There is a peace and confidence you have when you are equipped with the right information.

Faith is not a risk; it comes with information.

And you will joyfully give thanks to the Father who has made you able to have a share in all that he has prepared for his people in the kingdom of light.  God has freed us from the power of darkness, and he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son. The Son paid for our sins, and in him we have forgiveness.

Colossians 1:12-14 (NCV)

6. Thanksgiving is a product of faith. Whenever we give thanks to God, it’s an expression of our faith in Him. 

When you pray say, “Father, I thank you because…”

That’s faith.

We thank God because we know that He’s God and that He has already done everything for us. 

When you know that God knows your desire, you won’t worry, but instead you’ll thank Him for providing for you. 

When you give God thanks, He will show you possibilities that you haven’t seen before. 

As Christians, our lives should be full of thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is an act of faith, and by thanking God, you are acknowledging what He has already done for you in Christ Jesus. Therefore, instead of worrying, we rejoice because we already have the victory. Hallelujah!
