We are called to trust God; to believe his word and to have faith and one thing is certain you cannot trust a liar such as the devil for there is no truth in him.
We are called to have the God kind of faith that allows us to ‘Preach the gospel, to cast out devils in the name of Jesus and to lay hands on the sick and see them recover’ Mark 16:17-18
You are called to say to mountains, whatever you face; ‘Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he say’s shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says’ Mark 11:23
This God kind of faith is not based on feelings, or circumstances, or how difficult things might be in your life, the God kind of Faith that moves mountains, that heals the broken hearted, deliver the captives, gives sight to the blind and brings liberty to the bruised and downtrodden around us comes from taking God at his word.
True faith is soundly established on the promises of the Creator of heaven and earth, the Almighty God who ‘loved us so much he gave his only Begotten Sons life that we might everlasting life’ John 3:16
It strips away doubt and ignores the devils lies and the fear mongers and unbelievers who say on one hand that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever and then take his word and deny that he still heals the sick or that he delivers the captives.
Some theologians would have us believe that miracles stopped when the Apostles died; that could be correct if it was the Apostles that healed the sick and did miracles but they never did. It was Christ who ‘healed the sick, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil for God was with him’ Acts
