But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (KJ2000)
God demands faith of us. If He were to demand that we have faith when it is impossible for us to have faith, we would have a right to challenge His justice. If you are going to be strong in faith, you must be strong in the knowledge of the Word. You must feed upon the Word in your quiet time and listen to ministers as they teach the Word to get faith. I reiterate, lack of faith is a due to a lack of knowledge or understanding of the Word. Unbelief is often a result of a lack of understanding. God has provided the means whereby faith can be produced. So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
Application: Read 2 Corinthians Chapter 5.
Affirmation: I understanding that the new creation is the first building block for faith. I spend time meditating on the fact that I am a new creation in Christ. I am a new creation in Christ, old things have passed away, all things have become new (2 Cor. 5:17).
God caused it to rain forty days and forty nights in the flood of Noah. (Genesis 7:4)
Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights receiving the Ten Commandments from the Lord. (Exodus 34:38).
Jesus fasted for forty days and forty nights while being tempted of the devil. (Matthew 4:1-2)
You will never be the same after 40 DAYS OF APPLICATION and AFFIRMATION of the WORD and PRAYER.
