As believers, we are purposed to walk by faith. However, did you realize that our walk by faith is how we work our faith? The word of God tells us in James 2:14-26 that faith without works is dead. Since faith without works is dead then a walk that is not rooted in faith is not only spiritually dead but the unrealized reality of the person who chooses not to walk by faith.
The word of God tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Why is this so? A walk that is not established in faith is separated from the thoughts of God that is also known as faith as a mustard seed (Matthew 17:20). Faith is the higher and heavenly way of how God thinks (Isaiah 55:8-9). Faith is how we are able to hear God that empowers us to walk by faith (Romans 10:17) and remove mountains that are trying to separate us from our blessing. Mountains that are trying to separate us from God’s promise in our life.
The promise of God is that we inherit the kingdom of God which is rooted in faith. This is why Philippians 2:5 tells us “let this mind be in you that is also in Christ Jesus.” The mind that is in Christ is the glory of God that is full of God’s grace and truth. The glory of God is the faith of God. This faith is full of the truth that will set us free from whatever lie that is trying to defeat us. The lie that our faith is not bigger than an unfavorable health condition. The lie that our faith is not bigger than an unfavorable financial burden. The lie that our faith is not bigger than an unfavorable marriage dispute. The lie that our faith is not bigger than negative emotions purposed to paralyze our walk by faith. These lies are presented to stop our God because our God, who is the author and finisher of our faith is the substance of our hope and the evidence of the unseen promises that will soon come to pass in our lives (Hebrews 11:1).
Faith is how God moves. Faith is how God heals. Faith is how God restores. Faith is how God thinks because faith is who God is. Faith is what we must renew our minds in so we can be transformed into the image and likeness of God’s thoughts and ways that make us more than conquerors in life (Romans 12:2). Faith is God’s way and how God’s makes the impossible possible. In order for us to access faith we must first seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness; where He uses the mustard seed faith to add all things to us that we need to live a blessed and fulfilled life.
The word of God tells us in Philippians 4:19 that God shall supply all our need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. God’s riches in glory is faith which is full of God’s grace and truth. Anything that we need must be received by faith through grace (Ephesians 2:8). Faith is the glory of God that is full of God’s grace and truth because it is the word of God that is rooted in the thoughts of God where all creation starts and end. Therefore, faith is the beginning and end of God’s grace and truth.
If you want to put your faith to work, you must first receive faith by hearing the word of God (Romans 10:14-17) from people who He sent to help you work your faith; because this is how faith will come to you as it empowers you and equips you to be whole in mind, spirit, soul and body. When faith comes,it is the mustard seed, that will remove every unfavorable condition in your life.

Gospel Artist Tye Tribbett who is the Founder of Tye Tribbett & G.A. BET show, “Joyful Noise” premieres Sunday’s at 9:00 a.m. eastern standard time on the BET Network. I found myself enjoying Tye Tribbett & G.A.’s song, “The Worship Medley” this morning as I was preparing for my day. It is a great song to hear faith as it affirms your spirit and reminds us that when we worship God we become more aware of His presence where chains are broken and breakthrough is released to set us free!
