"For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith" (Rom. 12:3).

In my years of ministry, I've seen people who will learn a little about faith and put it into practice. But when they don't get instant results, they sometimes get discouraged. They begin to think they just don't have the kind of faith that people in the Bible had.

If that's happened to you, let me assure you, God hasn't shortchanged you. You have everything it takes to live by faith!

The Word says God has given every man "among you"—or every believer—the measure of faith.

That means He deposited the same measure of faith inside you that He deposited in me—and every believer on earth. It's a force inside your spirit that's just as much a part of you as the juices in your stomach that digest your food. It's as real inside your spirit as your brain is inside your head.

No new creature was ever created with half a faith. Someone might have some kind of deformity in his or her body, but no one has any deformity in his born-again spirit. Everybody's newborn spirit has faith in it. And that faith increases as it hears and receives the Word of God.

It doesn't matter who you are, where you are or what you are. If you have made Jesus Lord of your life, you have more faith capacity in you than Jairus had when he directed Jesus toward his daughter (Mark 5).

You have more faith capacity in you than the woman with the issue of blood had when her touch brought Jesus to a halt in the middle of the road. Your faith is the very same faith Jesus has. He is the Author of your faith.

Has God changed? No. Never has. Never will. So if Jairus...and the woman on the road...and Bartimaeus...and the leper...and the two blind men could receive from the Anointing of Jesus, so can you. You already have in you all the faith you'll ever need. If there is weakness, it is in the development and the release of that faith.

Speak the Word: God has dealt to me the measure of faith. My faith grows more and more as I hear the Word. (Romans 12:3; 10:17)
