I was thinking about those who have the fear of not having enough faith for healing. As I thought about the many times Jesus healed someone and said, "Your faith has made you whole," I pondered why faith could have such a powerful anecdote to one’s misery. I thought it unfair that someone so bound in hopeless conditions, who had already tried everything, would somehow have to muster up enough faith to be healed. The Holy Spirit came to me in that moment and revealed something as I was reading the following passage:

"As they approached Jericho, a blind beggar was sitting beside the road. When he heard the noise of a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. They told him that Jesus of Nazareth was going by. So he began shouting, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" The crowds ahead of Jesus tried to hush the man, but he only shouted louder, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" When Jesus heard him, he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. Then Jesus asked the man, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord," he pleaded, "I want to see!" And Jesus said, "All right, you can see! Your faith has healed you." Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too." (Luke 18:35-43 NLT)

This poor blind man had no idea what all the commotion was and when he found out, he probably had no idea if Jesus would see or hear him because of the great crowds. The Holy Spirit suddenly imparted the understanding that because he could not physically reach Jesus, naturally he did not have the faith that Jesus WOULD heal him, rather he believed that Jesus COULD heal him if he could get His attention. We think that our faith must believe that He will, when all He is asking is for us to believe that He can. I saw that all it takes is a tiny mustard seed of faith. Healing of hope is like that, it doesn’t take some huge mountain of hope, all it takes is a glimmer or a response. Lazarus was dead, he had no faith. All he did was respond when the Lord called him.



HEARD: Try asking the Lord for the faith to get there.

VISION: I saw these written with lines around it like a box. "Here’s hoping." "Do you want My help?



HEARD: And He came down to listen to the sons of men. "My" faith. Whose faith? Yes, it’s yours, I gave it to you.

Heb 11:1-2 NLT

What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see. God gave his approval to people in days of old because of their faith.

Eph 2:8-9 NKJV

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Rom 10:17 NKJV

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.



I was groaning, "Father oh Father" and I heard Him say,

HEARD: Lean on Me, the author and finisher of your faith. You have won a prize and there is going to be a take.



HEARD RIDDLE: A bird faith leaves everything up to his Master.

Matt 6:25-27 NLT

"So I tell you, don't worry about everyday life--whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes. Doesn't life consist of more than food and clothing? Look at the birds. They don't need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are. Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not.

Little one, you concern yourself about whether or not you have enough faith. Try asking Me for faith. I plant even the tiniest seed of hope and bring it unto full bloom. This is not something that you trump up and gather for yourself. I alone AM the Author and Finisher of your faith. What you have is a gift from Me, and I not only gave you the portion you have, but I AM the One building it within you and I will complete My work as well. So relax and cast all your worries upon Me.

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith." (Heb 12:2 KJV)
