Anyone who is having troubles should pray. ... When a believing person prays, great things happen. -James 5:13,16 NCV

Faith is Not Positive Thinking

Romans 10:17 - “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have so much faith, others have weak faith, and some have no faith at all? Is God unfair? No, God is no respecter of persons (see 2 Chronicles 19:7). He has given to every man a measure of faith (see Romans 12:3). And so, what is faith? Let me first say what it is not. Faith is not positive thinking or optimism. It is not a feeling that you can do something. It is not a hunch or looking on the sunny side of the street. Faith is getting a word from God and acting upon it. You see, you can get a word from God and believe that word. That is belief. But when you act upon it, that is faith. Faith is belief with legs on it. ~Adrian Rogers

Today is the day that you put your foot of faith upon the promises of God and say, “That promise is mine!”

Amen!

  1. Faith means deep trust to me. Not a feeling, not positive thinking. Just a knowing that God is there, and he hears me, and he also knows what I need and what is best for me.
