Faith in the Word ( by Fenny West)

Faith in the Word  and in the God of the Word

Faith in the Word

Brings a great reward.
It Pulls you over
And makes you stronger.

Makes your life better.

 

Faith in the Word
Reveals possibilities
And spiritual realities
Amidst difficulties.

 

Faith in the Word
Causes you speak to mountains
And see them reduced to plains
As you walk over them.

 

Faith in the Word
Shows your faith in God;
His integrity and His ability;
His faithfulness and loving-kindness.

 

Faith in the Word
Changes your playing field;
Makes you refuse to yield
To principalities and powers.
You see God as your shield.

 

Faith in the Word
Makes you inventive,

 imaginative and creative

just like your God

who calls those things

which be not as though they were.

 

Faith in the Word
Causes you to say what God said

rather than what your circumstance says.
And as you do,

 spiritual realities are manifested

into the physical world.

 

Faith in the Word
Will increase your faith
To be daring and enduring;
Pressing on and on

until you wear the victor’s crown.

7              For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Cor5:7

17   For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Ro 1:17

Seeing the Invisible

16   Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17   For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

18   while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

2Cor4:16-18

Hebrews 11: By Faith We Understand

1     Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2              For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. 6               But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Heb. 11:1-2,6

17            So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.Ro10:17

 

8     But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):

9     that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

10   For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Ro 10:8-10

4              For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith. 1Jojn5:4

16   above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Eph6:16

2     So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.

23   For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

24   Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Mark11:22-24

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

5     Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,

6     saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”

7     And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

8     The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.

9     For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10   When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!

Matt8:5-10

Hope against all hope

A Girl Restored to Life and a Woman Healed

21   Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea.

22   And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet

23   and begged Him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live.

25   Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,

26   and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.

27   When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.

28   For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

29   Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.

30   And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31   But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ “

32   And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.

33   But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.

34   And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

Mark5:25-34

35   While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?”

36   As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.”

37   And He permitted no one to follow Him except Peter, James, and John the brother of James.

38   Then He came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw a tumult and those who wept and wailed loudly.

39   When He came in, He said to them, “Why make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but sleeping.”

40   And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying.

41   Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”

42   Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement.

43            But He commanded them strictly that no one should know it, and said that something should be given her to eat. Mark 5:36-43
