And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said “many people have more faith in their faith then faith in Me.” I asked the Lord Jesus how does one tell when their faith is in their faith and not in you? He said when you say I don’t feel very spiritual to pray today. Or you base everything on how you feel spiritually and never seem to do anything.
When you trust Jesus to be your Lord your entire trust is in Him and not in your self. You reach that place through a personal relationship and fellowship daily with Him. Without that daily fellowship there will never be that trust. A trust in His Word and not in Him is where most Christians are today. They have a historical knowledge of Jesus but they would not know Him if He stood before them. They are always confessing and believing for something to happen that never does. They are hearers of the Word but not doers of the Word. The more time you spend with Him the greater your trust in Him will be. When you have that personal fellowship with Him you will mightily let Jesus’ love and power flow through you to this world.
Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. “This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
(1 Samuel 17:45-46)
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
(1 John 5:5)
