Having Ears of Faith

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

Our faith in God is linked to our physical sense of hearing and it must be that we hear the word of God to gain and increase in faith. Hearing is described as an auditory perception which supports the ability to perceive sounds and to detect vibrations. en.m.wikipedia.org

“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” (Psalms 119:130) In this verse, David is saying that the teaching and impartation of the word of God, brings understanding to even those who are simple or slow to understand. I have learnt a principle called ‘total immersion’ or ‘complete saturation’ in the word to increase faith.

The word of God is prescriptive and has answers to all of life’s problems. If it’s healing that you need, then totally immerse your senses in what the bible says about healing. Some ministers have been kind enough to post on the internet, audio recordings of scriptures about healing. The word of God is readily available at our fingertips and it is up to us to tap into the word to get what we need. This is definitely more beneficial than binge watching crime dramas or reality TV.

What I mentioned above is only one example of how we can saturate our ears with the word to increase our faith in a particular area. Once our faith is increased, then it is easier to grasp what God has promised. So think about your number one need and seek out biblical resources that teach Kingdom principles to increase your faith in that area. You can find teachings on financial freedom, marriage, success, overcoming challenges and strategies to win life’s battles.

“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” (Matthew 11:15)
