How do we have or develop the God kind of faith? Are there bible verses or scripture on how to have the God kind of faith?
We established ( in The God kind of faith) that The God kind of faith is the substance (something tangible) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
It is basically seeing things from God’s perspective, the way God sees things.
How do we have the God’s kind of faith
We have the God kind of faith by taking authority on what has been moved (the spoken word)
Faith moves what has been moved, so how do you have the God kind of faith, its by taking authority over what has been moved (the word of God).
let’s cite an example, let’s say its a world free shopping day, which means you can buy all you want for free irrespective of the cost, it has been paid for, then you enter into the shopping mall to get some things knowing fully well that irrespective of whatever it is you are buying, its been paid for, as you were about leaving, the sales personnel notified you of your bill.
What do you think you will do, I bet I know what you will do, you will walk to the counter with all boldness and audacity, and you will reply by saying with authority “it has been paid for”. That’s what the God kind of faith looks like, the scripture says in
2Peter 1:1 “Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle (special messenger, personally chosen representative) of Jesus Christ, To those who have received and possess [by God’s will] a precious faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ”:
We use Jesus’s faith, the moment you genuinely surrender and accept Christ as lord and savior, you become christed, his nature including his faith becomes yours.
Romans 12:3 “For by the grace [of God] given to me I say to everyone of you not to think more highly of himself [and of his importance and ability] than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has apportioned to each a degree of faith [and a purpose designed for service]”.
ROM 12:3 AMP
God has apportioned to every man that is saved a measure of faith for service and that measure of faith was released unto you, the very moment you got saved, your duty is to feed it, cultivate and utilize it.
“For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith”
If ye shall speak to this mountain, you are suppose to take authority over the mountain, and not to be telling God to help you move what has been moved.
Some people pray this way ‘Dear God, please i need you to heal me of this disease, this is what God will do, he will fold his hands and say “why are you asking me to do what has been done“His son paid the price, and while on the cross, he said “it is finished”. It then means all that you will ever need now and in the future has been moved, all you need to do is to take authority.
