We Receive From God By Faith
MATTHEW 9:29 NKJ 29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith let it be to you."
Have you ever wondered why God blessed someone -- when it was obvious they did not deserve it?
Do you wonder why you are not more blessed -- even though you are doing your best to be a good Christian?
The answer is faith.
We do not receive from God based on what we deserve, but on what we believe.
GALATIANS 3:9 ICB 9 Abraham believed this, and because he believed, he was blessed. It is the same today. All who believe today are blessed just as Abraham was blessed.
Our receiving from God is not based on our works, but on God's grace. We have access to God's grace by our faith -- not through our merit.
ROMANS 5:2 NKJ 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand . . . .
Many try to earn something from God when He has already given us all things through Christ. Now by faith we must appropriate what God has provided.
Don't despair if your faith is not too strong. The cure for weak faith is to feed on the Word of God, the Bible.
ROMANS 10:17 NKJ 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
If you feed your heart and mind the Word of God, your faith will grow strong. You feed it in by reading it, hearing it, speaking it, and meditating on it.
SAY THIS: I will feed on God's Word and my faith will grow. Then I will receive all God has for me.
