                                 The Best Faith

To have miracles in our life first we must have faith. Such as the woman who touched Jesus robes and was healed. Mark5:25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? 31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. Her faith in just touching his clothes healed her how lovely.

In Matthew 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
The importance of faith is stated for us in the book of Hebrews.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).We have faith in something because we have heard about it. We cannot have faith without hearing.
We have read and or heard many times all of us to have faith and to believe is what faith is right? If we want something from the Lord alls we have to do is believe it with all our hearts our souls and our minds.

When we ask something of the Lord and we know the Lord is faithful we just simply must believe in his word believe in him believe he will do what we have asked and it will be done to us for us or within us. Matthew 17:20And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.Matt 15:28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Some people do not believe that the Lord is still healing people but I tell you it is not doctors nurses or any other who do the healing it is God himself. Look at Psalm 103:1-3, “Bless the Lord, O my soul,…And forget none of His benefits … Who heals all your diseases;” This scripture does not leave room for anyone, or anything, to perform healing except God. We can see from this scripture too that there isn’t any disease God doesn’t heal. Let’s be careful not to limit God. We must realize He can heal through different means.EXODUS 15:26: “And He said,…for I, the Lord, am your healer.” JAMES 1:16-17,James taught that we are deceived if we believe any good gift can come from anyone except God, and surely healing is a good gift.James 1:16-17 “Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.”

Now I also want to point out a good way to have faith to show the Lord, you have that kind of faith he wishes to see in you, is to praise him for the miracle you are expecting. Meaning say Lord God I praise you and I thank you Father for the healing action you are even now planning. Praise him before the end of the troubles. Praise him in the midst of your Trial knowing that he will heal you and or bring you through this.Praise him for caring enough about you to allow you to go through these tests and trials. To know that he is stretching your faith and growing it in him.To know that he has better bigger plans for you and having faith in him that he will teach you how to handle what is coming in your future. Never forget Jesus knows your yesterdays todays and tomorrows all of them and he will always prepare you for what you must face and or go through.

We must not have a wavering kind of faith, meaning we cannot say one minute oh I know he will heal or do this thing for me, then the next minute saying oh he wont do this. No wishy washy belief will net your miracle. James 1:1-8 1. James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
1:3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

In closing I just want to say faith in it’s best form is strong belief, it needs no proof. The Dictionary says:1. belief that is not based on proof,2.   belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings,3. the trust in God and in His promises as made through Christ and the Scriptures by which humans are justified or saved. All of this says to me just believe. Believe you will have your healing, meet your financial obligations,your every need,do not waver in the belief that all of your needs will be met, and they will be met. Do not doubt for one milisecond God or his wonder working powers, and you “will” see miracles.
Mark 11:24
24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Jn. 16:23-24 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
May God Bless and keep you all safe healthy and happy in His loving guiding hand.
Love in Christ Jesus,Prayer Warrior/Tammy
