Faith brings God's power for whatever you need into your body, into your business, into your mind, into your spirit, into your children - into your life. Your faith will bring His blessing for whatever you are believing God to do for you.

But without faith, it is impossible to please Him (Heb. 11:6). Impossible - that means it can't be done! God will never leave you nor forsake you (Heb. 13:5), but you can't please God with your life and begin to have His abundant life flowing through you if you don't have faith.

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Romans 10:17 says, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." You can't get faith any other way. You must hear God's Word! Then faith will come.

God releases the power only when He finds faith. Otherwise the power just stays in heaven. That is the way He has set it up. Isaiah 55:8 says, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." Since He is God, we should let Him do things His way.

A lot of people don't have very much respect for God. They want to do things their way, so they don't get very much from Him. They just stumble around, professing that they have faith, then keep wondering why nothing they believe for comes to pass.

Let God be God! Start doing things His way! He can prosper everything you put your hands on. You have to read the Bible and let faith begin to operate in your life. Your attitude about God can change your whole life. Your faith in Him releases His power.

If you make up your mind that God means what He says, that He wants you to be in health and prosper even as your soul prospers, that God is the head and you are a part of His church, then you can and will, as a part of God, be successful in everything you do, and be healthy in every part of your body.

To get faith, you must have and believe God's Word. Stop listening to the words of men and start hearing the Word of God. Only believe - that's where to start. Get out your Bible and start reading it with the idea of believing every single word, exactly the way it says, and start doing what it says.
