17 So then, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Your level of faith is directly proportional to your level of reception of God’s Word. When I first met Pastor Charles and heard his testimony of years of living in divine health, I meditated on it a lot. I had never heard any- one speak like that. One day I made up my mind that I would grow my faith because I understood that my level of faith determines my experience of Zoe. I also desired to live life more abundantly in my body and indeed in every area of my life. I may not be where I want to be yet, but certainly, I have left where I used to be!
Your level of faith determines your experience of the absolute fullness of God’s life. You cannot expect to experience the fullness of God on someone else’s faith. So you can see how vital and how important faith is. You cannot do without faith. You cannot casually take faith as one of those things you do not need. By doing so, you are effectively saying that the life of God is some- thing you do not really need! How can your lungs not respond to oxygen and you expect them to function? How can you not respond to the message of faith and you expect to live life more abundantly?
Your level of faith is directly proportional to your level of reception of the Word of God. Your level of reception of the Word of God determines your experience of God’s life. If you want to experience higher levels of God’s kind of life, you need to take in more and more of the Word of God.
Confession: The Word declares that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. I will surround myself with a faith filled environment and my faith will grow and grow and doubt will shrink and shrink, in Jesus’ Name.
