Romans 10:17 – So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Faith is actually built in the word of God, so when you hear the word of God , there’s an intake of faith. A lot of times, people intake faith and never send the faith out to carry out the mission.
Philemon 1:6 – That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
Faith must be communicated or released. Basically, we believe, we confess, and we receive and faith is one of the greatest lessons you can learn. Here, it is telling you how to put your faith to work for you. How to let your faith accomplish things in life that need to be accomplished and faith can accomplish things supernaturally.
Effectual means that it will effect the thing that you set it after. Having effectual faith is faith that is received, but also faith that is released properly.
Another way to communicate your faith is by acknowledging every good thing, which is in you, in Christ Jesus. Acknowledge who you are in Christ. Acknowledging the goodness of the Lord that is on the inside of you that came to you through Christ. There may be some things that you are working on in your family, your personal life, or your body. I exalt you not to give up because faith cannot fail if you keep working it properly. One of the ways to release your faith is by opening your mouth.
Mark 11:23 says, 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.
A mountain represents anything that may be a hindrance to you.
I was in the shopping center, and I ministered to a young lady from that verse. I told her to read it 16 times a day and I explained to her what it really meant. If you really don’t know how to communicate your faith, you are in trouble. So, later on the young lady saw us again in the shopping center and she said that she had read the verse. I asked her what she received from it and she responded, “You can jump off any mountain and God will take care of you.” I said, “No, no, no that verse is not talking about jumping off a mountain.” You see, when you misinterpret the scripture, you misinterpret your faith. That scripture is talking about speaking to the mountain, not jumping off of it.
A lot of times when trouble comes, we want to jump off the mountain when we need to stand still and know that He is God and speak to that mountain!
