If there is anything you need to work on this year, it is your faith. You ought to build more capacity to believe God because without faith, you cannot please God. You can receive more from the Lord this year by faith. The life of the believer is faith-based. You live by faith, you walk by faith, you produce results by faith, it begins by faith and ends with faith; for the just shall live by faith. We may all prophesy, but not beyond the capacity of our faith, else the prophecy won’t come to pass (Romans 12:6). The believer’s life is purely faith-based; even your ministry is limited by your faith. Now understand that faith comes by hearing the Word (Romans 10:17). The miracle of listening to a message daily is amazing! It will get you amazing results in building up your faith. Listen continually to the Word this year. Surround yourself with the Word. Go to a Church where the Word is preached. While driving, listen to the Word. Attend conferences where the Word is preached. Listen to Word messages both in audio and video format; listen and listen and receive and believe the Word until your faith is strengthened and edified.
Beloved, you can only believe God regarding something when you have heard God’s Word concerning that thing. You don’t decide to believe God having not heard God. Such a decision is vain. Faith is not mere determination; it is believing and acting on the Word you have heard and received. Faith is the ability that is imparted to you to believe God by hearing God’s Word. Listen beloved, as you begin to hear God’s Word consistently, the Word accumulates in your heart, the richness of God’s Word precipitates in your spirit and the Word starts talking to you; you are inspired by the Word to action, and that’s faith. You get quiet and can hear the voice of God talking to you. If you listen long enough to the Word, the revelation of the Word you have been listening to will drop in your spirit and all of a sudden, you will have the guts to say, that thing is now mine, I have it, I have received it! Your countenance will be lit because you know deep in your heart, you are confident that you have received. You will say “I’m not going to worry myself over or get bothered about that anymore.” Hallelujah!
