Jesus has authorized you to have Faith in Him.
He has authorized you to Believe Him.
He has given you the authority to walk in authority, in obedience.
He has given you the authority to believe Him. (Hebrews 12:2).
He has given you exceedingly precious promises to those who believe.
Why is this? Because promises are given, and flow out from the one Who has all power and authority to keep His promises.
After all, what good are promises if the person who gives them is known to not keep them?
This means he has nothing to show concerning who he says he is. But God is not a man that He would lie.
God is able to do far above all we could ask or think according to His power that is at work within us.
This is a promise that resides in a believer who is willing to put some shoe leather to what this promise is saying.
There are many in this world who would say they have faith in God, but their actions don’t play it out.
They say they have The Gifts of The Spirit, but they won’t so much as open their mouths in obedience to what The Spirit of The LORD is giving them.
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Assurance of things hoped for, without obedience, will have no fruit. By their fruit you will know them.
Jesus said, “Have the Faith of God.” (Mark 11:22-24).
Obedience to the Word That Is Sent, since it is being sent to the one who is walking in obedience, is like walking in faith with a funnel hanging over your spirit; He is pouring into your obedient spirit, so much more than what is pouring out; the more you let His Voice pour through your obedient voice, the greater the Rhema Word will manifest.
Rhema is life-giving Spirit, that is, the anointed Word That Is Sent.
The faith of God, therefor, is what is carrying you along by The Holy Spirit.
Prophecy is not given by for any private interpretation, but “holy men of God spoke as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (2 Peter 1:21).
Therefor, they are carried along by manifestation of the faith of God. (Mark 11:22-24).
They, we, are being carried along by the Faith of God, when we walk in obedience to the Spirit of The LORD.
For the people who do know their God, shall be strong and take action. (Daniel 11).
You have the authority to believe Him . You have the authority to receive from Him. And, you have the authority to obey Him.
“Trust in The LORD with all of your heart, and do not lean upon your own understanding; but acknowledge Him in all you do and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6.
“Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is why I said that the Spirit will take from Mine and show it unto you.” John 16:15.
Therefor, be led by The Spirit.
