I have since noticed as a Christian that it is one thing for God to make promises to believers but another thing altogether for them to have the requisite faith to appropriate or birth them. The question is, can your faith carry God’s promises in the scriptures? The faith of many is not able to carry the promises of God? He has promised to give a husband, a wife, money, there shall none be barren in the land; He has promised all that pertain to life and to godliness but the point remains, can your faith carry any of these?
“Where is your faith?” is a simple question which Jesus asked His disciples who feared exceedingly while weathering a storm. This is a question He would never have asked if He was not certain that God had endued His disciples, indeed all of us, with a measure of faith in order to embark on warfares. The question, “where is your faith?” comes when we fail to apply faith as requisite action when necessary.
Every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is entitled to lay hands on the sick and the sick will recover. Mark 16:17-18 say, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;18 .They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” The power to heal the sick is in categories. Baptized in the Holy Ghost, we need to be readily conscious to ask God to give us gifts that would back up our ministries – gifts of revelation, supernatural faith, working of miracles and healing.
