“For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.” – Hebrews 11:2
God will give you faith to believe because it is a gift from God!
Just as you were chosen and given a special plan for your life, you have to step out in faith to fulfill that plan.
If you will not allow your human nature and the trials of life to crush your faith and interfere with God’s plans, you will mount up with wings like eagles (Is. 40:31).
As you allow the Holy Spirit to help you and work God’s perfect plan in your life He will change your nature to the extent that you can’t disbelieve , but you will act faith, talk faith, and in faith sing praises to God!
There will be no room for anything but faith because you have passed beyond the natural plane into a new atmosphere where God encloses us into position – the position of faith..
Faith is an increasing position, always triumphant! It is not a place of poverty, but that of wealth. If you always live in fruitful-ness, you will always have plenty.
The above verse says, “The elders obtained a good testimony.” As you live by faith you will have a good testimony. As you step out of your comfort zone and act in faith, you will have a good testimony.
God intends for us to live in the sphere of His power so that we will always be in a position to tell others about the act of faith that brought the manifestion of what we were believing God to do in our lives.
You can not be in, or stay in, a place of doubt if you want to see manifestion because faith is the substance of things hoped for.
God doesn’t just want us to dip our toes in the water at the sea shore, instead, He wants us to be bold and rise on the crest of the tide – not to just keep wading along the beach.
If you dare to believe, that belief is very powerful — and God wants you to be powerful, faith-filled people who will dare to launch out from the shoreline and dare to trust Him in glorious faith, which always takes you beyond what is ordinary so you will obtain a good testimony.
