THE BIBLE FAITH

THE BIBLE FAITH

Text: Mark 11:20-24
Memory verse:
”For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.“
‭‭Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭23‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Everyone, whether saved or unsaved, have one kind of faith, that is, the natural faith. You don’t fall when you walk because you believe your two legs can hold you up. That is the natural faith. It is this faith that also makes you sit straight on a chair without checking if it can carry you.
Bible faith is not walking in your natural human faith. Rather, it is walking according to what the word of God says. It is agreeing in your heart with what the word of God says.
The natural human faith walks by the five human senses. For example, it doesn’t believe what the eyes haven’t seen. Such a person says, “I will believe when I see it or I will know if I have it when I see it”. But the truth is that you don’t need to believe after you have seen it. You only believe to receive what you have not seen.
Bible faith is laying hold of the unseen realms of hope and bringing it to the realms of reality. Unlike the natural human faith, which believes with the head, Bible faith believes with the heart.
According to our memory text,
”…and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.“ ‭‭(Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭23‬).
It can also be read this way, “… but believes IN HIS HEART that those things he says will be done…”
It is the heart faith that pleases God and then delivers your desires to you, not the head faith. The head faith can agree with the word mentally and even quote it, but for one reason or another, it believes that the word won’t work. On the contrary, Bible faith says, “God said it, I believe it, and it is mine”
Believing with the heart brings promises into reality. The scripture also says, ”For with the heart one believes …“ ‭‭(Rom‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬).
It is very possible to have doubt in your head and still have faith in your heart. The Bible doesn’t say “…and does not doubt in his head” but “does not doubt in his heart”. Like William James said, “Faith means belief in something concerning which doubt is theoretically possible”. In fact, most exploits of faith are with doubt in the head but faith in the heart. On the contrary, any doubt in the heart will cause your faith to fail.
Friends, believe with your heart and not your head, and you will experience the glory of God this year.
