And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive. Matthew 21:22, AMP.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In the natural realm, we exchange money for the things we want and need. But in the spiritual realm, faith is what we exchange. The Bible tells us that when you pray, have faith, and you will receive it. Faith moves mountains. Faith pleases God. Faith is what opens doors. What is faith? Its believing in God and His goodness. Its knowing that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Faith is believing that the promises of God are true. Its obeying His Word. Its what causes you to act.
Where does faith come from? Scripture tells us that everyone is given a measure of faith; that faith grows by hearing the Word of God. Simply put, the more you hear the Word of God, the more real it becomes in your life and the easier it is to believe His promises.
It doesnt matter how much faith you have today, begin growing your faith by choosing to obey Gods Word. As you hear and obey the Word, your faith will strengthen, and you will receive what youve been believing for in Jesus name!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your Word which causes my faith to grow. I open my heart to You and invite You to have Your way in my life. Show me Your goodness and faithfulness as I put my trust in You in Jesus name. Amen.
