FAITH FOR EXTRAORDINARY LIVING .
John 20:25 "The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe."
Like Thomas most people would only believe only when they have evidence . Our five senses were given to us by God to aid in our interaction with earthly life. However , if we do not reprogram our way of thinking to acknowledge the limits of our five senses, they will keep us from believing. Faith can perceive things that the senses cannot (Heb. 11:1). For instance, someone could be in love with you without you knowing it.
There are two kinds of faith , the first , human and the second supernatural or God-kind of faith. Human faith is based on physical things that we can see, taste, hear, smell, or feel. God's kind of faith believes independently of physical circumstances. To receive God's gift of salvation, we have to use the supernatural, God-kind of faith which isn't limited by our five senses but yet logical. This is because, to be saved, we must believe for things that we can't see or feel. We haven't seen God or the devil. We haven't seen Heaven or Hell. Yet we have to believe that these things exist. Human faith can't believe what it can't see, that's why there is so much disaster in the world claiming the lives of people who were warned through dreams and visions but the never believed it and paid dearly for it.
Man is so incapable of believing the gospel on his own. To receive God's gift of salvation, we have to receive the supernatural, God-kind of faith first. Where does this faith come from and how do we get it?
Romans 10:17 says, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." God's Word contains His faith. As we hear the Word of God about salvation, We receive God's faith so that we can believe the good news of our salvation. We actually use God's faith to get saved.
This God-kind of faith doesn't leave us after our born-again experience.
God's faith becomes a fruit of the Spirit which is in our hearts. We never lose this supernatural faith , we grow in it as we daily learn how to use it. The more you expose you expose yourself to the teaching of God's word the more you grow in faith. Receive grace as you read this now for an extraordinary breakthrough in Jesus name.
