Faith

Paul writes in Romans that every man has been given the measure of faith...

Romans 12: 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

I've talked before on this web site that faith is a substance and that there should be evidence that you have it too. Paul told the Romans earlier in the epistle that...

Romans 10 : 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Have you ever listened to a recording of your own voice? I've heard people say, "that's not me"! I believe our spirit's faith grows when it hears our own voice speak God's Word. Remember the scripture... "confess with your mouth"! Your spirit and soul need to hear you speak the word of God. God's people sang the psalms, and the proverbs were tied to the alphabet so they were easier to recite to their soul and spirit. When you read the psalms and proverbs available on this site, read them out loud and see the growth of your faith in substance and evidence.

I conclude that the more we receive God's word into our spirit the more our faith is activated. We already have a measure of it. We just don't know how to apply it.

Look at what Jeremiah, a son of a priest called to be a prophet of God, did when he discovered God's word that had been lost and neglected...

Jeremiah 15: 16 Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart:

So what did Jeremiah do? He read God's word, he meditated on God's word, he memorized God's word, he acted on God's word, and he spoke God's Word. His faith was activated!

Jeremiah was called of God to proclaim the causes of Judah's coming judgment. To show how the other nations were more faithful to their false gods than Judah was to God.
