The word of God tells us, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).” In life many people are facing challenges they have not been equipped to handle. As believers we are purposed to walk by faith and therefore face life challenges by faith. The word of God tells us in Romans 10:17, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Anything we conquer in life we are empowered to conquer by faith. The word of God tells us that when we have faith as a mustard seed, we can tell the mountain to be removed and cast into the sea.” Any challenge in life is a mountain in life that will only be moved by faith. However, we must understand what faith is and what faith is not because without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
Faith is the revealed knowledge of God that comes to us when we are hearing the revealed word of God because grace is the living word of God (Romans 10:17-19). In Hebrews 11:12, the word of God tells us, “The living word is powerful and sharper than a two edge sword, piercing soul and spirit, joints and marrow and is a discerner of the intents and thoughts of the heart.” This is the power of God’s revealed word because it is how He establishes us by faith through grace.
Sometimes, people believe they are working by faith in God when they are really working by faith in their own understanding. The word of God tells us in Proverbs 4:7, “Trust God and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.” Furthermore, the word of God reveals to us in, Isaiah 55:8 that God’s thoughts and ways are higher and heavenly. For this very reason, we must hear God’s revealed word, because at the root of His revealed word is the seed of faith that empowers us to walk by faith as we overcome fear. Hearing faith empowers us not to trust our own understanding that is established in trusting our own thoughts and ways which falls short of God’s higher way and heavenly thoughts that are established by faith through grace.
If you desire to overcome your life challenges by acknowledging God, start positioning yourself to hear faith, which is at the root of the living word of God that is the revealed knowledge of God’s wisdom, known to us as His gospel of grace (Proverbs 4:7). The more we hear faith we will eventually encounter the truth that will set us free from what ever comes to challenge the promises that God has already established for our life (Jeremiah 29:11). God has set apart every person who comes to Him before they were formed in their mother’s womb to be lead by faith and be used as His living vessel of grace, starting with the healing of our own mind, spirit, soul and body that is made whole in the presence of His living word (Jeremiah 1:5). I invite you to partner with SUIP Life Empowerment Institute and allow us to share the word of God with you that positions you to hear faith and overcome the limitations of fear. The limitations of fearing what God has promised you will not come to pass in your life.
When you switch from your path of fear rooted in your own understanding to God’s path of faith rooted in His higher ways and heavenly thoughts your path will be established in victory and your challenges will become your life’s victories. Your testimony of knowing the truth that sets you free will become your new reality because you have encountered the truth that is established by faith through grace. The truth of God is the perfect love of God that cast out all fear.
