"Have Faith in God" [Mark 11:22 KJV]
One of the most important scriptures in the New Testament is the
passage where Jesus, responding to the disciples who were amazed at a
miraculous event said: "Have Faith in God?
Scholars who have a deeper understanding of the Ancient Greek language
tells us that a more accurate translation of this passage is: "Have God's
Faith". In other words "Have the God Kind or
I realize that the fact that God has faith, and uses faith will
come to many as a surprise, yet Hebrews 11:3 as well as many other
passages assure us that not only does God have faith - but he
also uses faith.
Contrary to what most people think: Faith is not
simply believing in the existence of God. Instead,
Faith is the spiritual FORCE used by God to create all that there is
[Hebrews 11:3] and He has also given it to men, as the means
whereby we are able to receive all the blessing of God.
After telling us that we are to have faith in
Mark 11:22, Jesus also explained how faith works
in the next verse. Basically, faith is the process, or the
corresponding action that accompanies what we believe.
If we believe that what we say will come
to pass, regardless of how things look, feel, or sound,
and don't doubt in our heart that our words have the
power to change the situation, then what we
say will manifest.
Faith versus Sight:
Faith is not based upon what we see. Actually, faith operates in
direct opposition to what the natural senses reveal to us (sight,
sound, touch, taste, smell). Faith is a spiritual force that
supersedes the natural or physical laws of nature
and changes what is into what we want!
2Corinthians 5:7 states that we are to "Walk by Faith and NOT by Sight".
Hebrews 11:1 tells us that Faith is the "evidence of things NOT seen".
We must understand that God is not affected by what He sees.
Instead He changes what He sees into what he wants by His
Words. He speaks and fully expects that His Words will manifest
into situation and change the circumstances.
A great example of this is found in Genesis Chapter 1 verses 2-3:
"And the earth was without form, and
void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God
moved upon the face of the waters. 
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
Notice that God did not allow the darkness to affect Him. He was not
affected by what he saw. He simply spoke light into the darkness and the
situation changed. He believed that what he said would manifest, and it
did - that's called faith.
Two Kinds of Faith:
Unfortunately there is more than one type (kind) of faith and it is
important for us to discover which kind of faith we are
Type 1: The God Kind of Faith:
The God Kind of Faith) believes before it sees the actual
physical manifestation of it. The God kind of faith believes what God
has said before or without the necessity of seeing it. (We walk
by FAITH and NOT by sight: 2Cor 5:7)
Type Two: The Thomas Kind of Faith:
The Thomas kind of faith works directly opposite to how the God Kind of faith
operates. A perfect example of this second kind of faith is given us in
In this example Jesus has appeared to the disciples after His
resurrection, but Thomas was not with them when he appeared. The
disciples tell Thomas that they have seen the Lord and Thomas refuses to
"The other disciples therefore said unto him, We
have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his
hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the
nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe."
Notice that Thomas states that unless, or until he sees the Lord:
He will NOT believe.
This is how so many of God's people also deal with the promises of God.
They will not believe them until they see them
manifest. Like Thomas, they want to see before they believe, they
want to feel before they believe, they want to
experience the promise before they believe it.
Faith Believes Without Seeing:
Eight days after Thomas has stated that he will not believe until
he sees the Lord with his own eyes, Jesus appears again. Jesus allows
Thomas to see him, touch him and feel him - and then Jesus makes another
astounding statement: "Because you have seen me,
you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have
believed." [John 20:29 NIV]
Notice that Jesus stated that it's not the ones who have believed
because they have seen, but rather it is the ones who believed without
Why is believing without seeing a blessing?
Because it is believing without seeing that is the God Kind of Faith
in operation - and it is the God Kind of Faith that causes the
promises of God to manifest in our life!
It should also be noted that Thomas' refusal to believe unless he
actually saw the Lord is how his name became associated with doubt and
unbelief. In our time, a person who doesn't believe something is called
a "doubting Thomas".
Remember what Jesus Said to Martha:
"Did I not tell you that if you believed,
you would see the glory of God?" [John 11:40]
Notice that the promise of God's (healing, deliverance, provision, etc) is
manifested in our life ONLY if and when we BELIEVE it. Most are looking
to SEE it before they believe it and they do not understand that we must
FIRST believe the promise if we are to see it.
