"WHATCHA SEE AND WHO YA' KNOW"

I don't have any faith.”

I've heard it often. Well...
Maybe I can help.
Merriam-Webster says:
Faith”...
:strong belief or trust in someone or something
:belief in the existence of God: strong religious feelings or beliefs
:a system of religious beliefs


Easton's Bible Dictionary says:
Faith”...
is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true. ...
Philippians 1:27 KJV; 2 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV


Well. The Holy Bible says...

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
...Hebrews 11:1 KJV


If you're reading this post...


You are seeking and believing that faith exists through actively learning of it.


You are believing that it is. That it's is something to inquire of, search out and learn of. To feed, utilize and strengthen.


In essence you are working that muscle of faith right now.


Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
...James 2:18 KJV


Think a minute...


If you're reading, you're believing and you're working.


And believing is the action of faith. Putting that faith to work.


And how do we obtain this thing called faith?

Apostle Paul writes:


For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think or himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
...Romans 12:3 KJV


Yes...


God supplies all that we need, in everything, to walk this walk of Life.


That includes... faith.


Therefore, as we walk, we grow and we strengthen.


In The General Epistle of James, our Brother asks:
But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
...James 2:20 KJV


Walking in faith, daily, is that work. It's working out that faith muscle... that God-given, and much needed, measure of faith.


It's kinda like breathing.


When born, babies have to quickly learn to take in that first breath of air. They're formed that way and it's needed to survive. They breathe, they feed, and they grow. It gets easier with every breath.


And like breathing a breath, faith grows easier with every step.


And now, as adults, we inhale and exhale without even thinking. It's automatic. We don't even give it a conscious thought. It's a God-given response.


So is faith, my Friend, and God gives us all exactly what we need to live this Christian call.


There's more.


Brother James also says:

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
...James 2:26 KJV


Sadly, many know Faith... but do not use it. That's a terrible waste of a precious tool in which God is our supply... 


But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.


That means tools and treasures!


Don't miss out on the blessings of God, my Friend, because you think you have no faith. That's a lie from Hell and the Truth is now.


Walk in your God-given measure of faith for whatever the need or desire. Don't miss out because of fear...


Don't go by whatcha see, but go by who ya' know!


Jesus Christ.


God has given you all that you need to believe. And the best part? He's bought it, stored it and is ready to give it to you.


By the Blood of Jesus Christ.


It's like this... Believe like you believe the sun (Son) rises and the (Son) sets. … Selah.


Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
...Hebrews 11:11 KJV


So, my Brother and Sister,


Breathe in, Breathe out. ...Step, Step, Step and Practice, Practice, Practice.


To believe is to have faith and to have faith is to receive. You'll be amazed at what you'll receive when you walk in that faith.


You'll see and I'm just sooo excited for you! Oh, and BTW...


Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
...John 6:29 KJV
