Bible in one Year: Amos 5-9

Romans 10:17

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

God has not only told us that without faith it is impossible to please Him, but He has also told us how to obtain faith. If we don’t have faith, it is not God’s fault. To blame God for our lack of faith is nothing but ignorance.

The Apostle Paul said that we are saved by faith (Ephesians. 2:8). Faith for salvation comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”( Romans 10:8–10,13–14,17) How does faith for healing come? In the same way faith for salvation comes—by hearing and believing God’s Word.

Acts 14:7–10 - And there they [Paul and Barnabas] preached the gospel. And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked:The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

Someone might say, “Isn’t it wonderful how Paul healed that man!” But Paul did not heal the man. The man was not healed because Paul was an Apostle, nor was he healed by Paul’s faith. The man himself had faith. Paul did three things: He preached the Gospel. He perceived that the man had faith to be healed. He told the man to stand up and walk. The man did three things: He heard Paul preach. He received faith through what he heard. He leaped and walked.

CONFESSION: I receive grace to read and listen to God’s word daily. In Jesus Name. Amen

PRAYERS: Lord, help me to be a hearer and a doer of your word, as I receive faith through hearing your word. I also receive strength to do what the word says in Jesus Name. Amen!
