Romans 10:13 ——- For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
The preacher explains the Word of God and this helps to understand the Word. Once the Word is understood, we begin to believe the Word and all it contains.
The Bible says in Mark 9:23 —— Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
It doesn’t mean that God’s going to give you anything you believe. You can’t just believe that God’s going to give you a brand new Rolls Royce. That’s not what the scripture says.
Here’s what Jesus is teaching. If you believe, then God can do anything in your life! If you believe. God is able to do all things, and He does them according to His plan and according to His purpose and according to His will.
The way that God is released… the way his power is released in your life and mine… is through faith! If you believe God can do anything.
So let me ask you, “How much faith do you have? Do you believe God’s Word?” Whether you know it or not, you need faith. You need faith just to believe in God every day. It’s through faith in Jesus Christ that we are enabled to accomplish things we never dreamed possible!
We must develop our believing through our knowledge from God’s Word. This understanding will prepare us for battle. Instead of waiting for the trials we must prepare ourselves beforehand and thus be victorious in the midst of our trials.
Mark 11:23-24 — Truly I tell you, if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and if you do not doubt in your heart, but believe that what you say will come to pass, it will be done for you. So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
When we ask God for His help, we must do so in faith, and we must persistently and continuously pray for God’s intervention. When we pursue God we must take the authority given to us and speak to the mountain that is causing pain and worry in our life. Pressure and worry will cause us to doubt, but we need to stay focussed on the promises of God and speak to our mountains with the authority given to us.
IF YOU WISH TO KNOW GOD YOU MUST KNOW HIS WORD.
