So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 NKJV.
Most of us are familiar with the word Faith but not many of us truly understand what it means to have Faith, especially in God. According to this scripture there are some prerequisites to having Faith. Faith has to come from hearing and Faith in God comes by hearing the word of God. The reason many of us lack in this area is that we are hearing a lot of words that come from other people, Friends, Parents, teachers and even sometimes Pastors. In most cases these people mean well and the words they speak to you may be sincere and what they believe to be best for you however, for you to have Faith in someone you have to hear from that person. I hear you asking, “how do I hear from God?” “how do I know what God is saying about a particular situation that I have.” God says that he is his Word, in other to hear what God is saying you have to get into his Word which is written in the Bible and let his Word get into you.
The Bible contains the Word of God but it is much more that just words. Once you start to read and study the Bible, you will realize that it is a road map to life and to living a God filled life and having a relationship with him through his son Jesus Christ. God has answers to all Life’s problems in the Bible. It’s time to blow the dust off your Bible and start reading and studying it and reeducate yourself with the Word of God and reset your faith in him. Make this part of your daily routine and watch God help you make some dramatic changes in your life through the Holy Spirit. These are Julien’s thoughts and what’s on his mind.
