Faith by Hearing; A Heavenly Perspective

(#008 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)

“So then faith comes by hearing, and by hearing I mean hearing My word.” (Romans 10:17)

How can you trust if you don’t know what I have said? How can you rely on promises when you have not heard them? Faith comes by hearing My word. I speak to you as My own child because My children hear my voice (John 10:27); they understand My principles, which are always repeated in patterns.

Your heart (center of intellect) wants only to receive My promises, My blessings. If you liken My commands to a list of chores, then My promises are the rewards for doing those chores. In order to receive the rewards from doing the chores, it stands to reason that you must first know what the chores are. Can you recognize the principle here and pattern in which it repeats?

The principle: The principle is knowing My living and active word; My word is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) I have magnified My word even above My Name. (Psalm 138:2)

The Pattern: When you magnify My word, make it supreme in your life, you will be inspired to obey Me; and obedience always brings blessings. “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey My voice, to observe carefully all My commandments which I command you today, I will set you high above all nations of the earth.” (Deuteronomy 28:1) You obey Me; I bless you!

When you become a child of the Most High, it is My heart (mind) that is placed in you (Ezekiel 36:26). And I have many revelations waiting for you loved one, but they will only be revealed to your heart in proportion to your effort.

Effort: Your purposeful intent to know My word and to follow it. No worries if you feel inadequate, My grace is sufficient and in your weakness I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:9). It is the thoughts and intents of the heart that I am discerning.

And finally, “My word is living” therefore, do not think it will reveal the same things to you next month or next year as it does today. You are being transformed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). You will grow in My word precept upon precept and line upon line (Isaiah 28:13). If you are My child, I will take the lead in raising you; however you are still responsible to make the effort. If you need help simply ask.

My word builds faith. There is no other way. Do what you must, for the days are short. I know this will help. I love you. I want you to know Me. I want you to increase your faith and therefore increase your blessing. Come to Me child; not because I have the answer to everything, but because I Am the answer to everything. Faith by hearing, this is My Heavenly Perspective.
