How Faith Comes: Faith Comes By Acting On The Word
Faith is the partner of knowledge. We have said that faith accompanies knowledge. If you are going to be strong in faith you must get the knowledge of the Word. The Word of God alone is the source of faith. Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word.
Now let's continue with the six things we must understand if we are going to obtain positive, Bible faith. Lack of faith is often due to a lack of knowledge or understanding of the Word. There are six areas of knowledge or understanding you must have to obtain positive, winning, Bible faith. Let's review the first four and then move on to number five.
#1 Understanding the new birth. #2 Understanding our place in Christ.
#3 Understanding of our righteousness.
#4. Understanding of our right to the use of the Name of Jesus!
#5. Understanding of acting on the Word.
What has God said about your problem in the Word? First, find scripture that covers your case from the Word. Act like the Word is true, and it becomes a reality in your life. "Faith is an act," as the late Smith Wigglesworth use to say.
If you are afraid to act, you really don't believe. Go back to your closet or sit at His feet and hear until the Word becomes a reality in your spirit.
Acting On The Word In Healing
Matthew 8:17 and 1 Peter 2:24 both promise us health and healing.
Our place is to act like they are true!
Dr. A. B. Simpson had been given six months to live due to a heart condition. He went to his farm—way out in the country—and spent two weeks studying healing, from sunrise to sunset. Convinced that divine healing is for us today, he claimed his healing, based on the Word. He was later invited to go mountain climbing, which his doctor had told him he could never do because of his condition. He had no feeling of healing. He acted on the Word and climbed
to the top of a tough mountain with men much younger than he.
He said, “All I did was to act on the Word! I never felt any better until I acted on the Word.” Through meditation on the Word, and acting on the Word, after saying it over and over to himself, he never had another symptom for the next 30 years, when he passed away totally healthy.
Here are three things that he learned:
1. Most people lose their healing over a counter-attack...
2. Real faith is a child of the knowledge of the Word.
3. Don't try to believe; just act on the Word.
So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
