Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.”
Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
1 Corinthians 2:5
That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not
2 Timothy 1:7
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
1 Peter 1:7
So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
So you see the humble walk by faith and not by sight! This is a gift of God in the Holy Spirit that we can walk by faith. The fruit of the Spirit is faith for we walk by faith and not by sight. As was said last night the Lord said He would provide for the ones that believe him in this group and look what He has done. He has provided for those who have trusted Him.

What a difficult time the fleshy man has with this message. We must do ourself the fleshy man says. Well if the Sprit says start an insurance practice, we say Lord I don’t know how but I obey in faith. Then the Lord provides the way and we walk in it. Yes as Levy had to work Saturdays for a time, as the Lord required, and blessed him for it. Yet now he is not required to do so anymore. Levy’s practice excelling yet it is by faith. The Lord has done it. Doing better than others who are much more able. It is the glory of the Lord seen an vessels like us along with Abraham. Abraham was provided for by the Lord’s faithfulness. He too humbled himself and obeyed the Lord in offering up his life. Only a meek man can walk by faith. What does that mean? It is a man that sees what he is before a holy God. Admits his inability. He fears God more than losing his life in this world. More than failure he fears not pleasing the Lord. Which is faith alone that pleases the Lord.
The Lord will be glorified in Abraham and all those that walk by faith. We see the meekness of Abraham to give Lot the first choice. Abraham was not concerned for he knew in whom he believed.
Pray in the Spirit that your faith may be increased and that you would love one another. Even as He has loved you and given all for you.
