The Hearing of Faith - Cal Pierce
We are in a time of history where we must live by faith. The Lord instructs us to do this in Habakkuk 2:4
But the righteous will live by his faith
We must live by faith because it takes faith to fulfill the will of God. Everything in God's Word is fulfilled by faith. In Matthew 9:29 it says, "Be it done to you according to your faith." How you receive the benefits of God's will is measured according to your faith. Your faith appoints the Holy Spirit to the fulfillment of God's will for you.
The Holy Spirit is in us to provide supernatural power to transfer what God has for us into the natural world by our faith. By faith we trust and believe so that we can receive. In Romans 10:17 we are told
So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ
The verse says we have to hear the Word. The Holy Spirit teaches us by the Word of God. When He reveals truth, truth establishes faith and our faith makes us free according to God's will for us. If we don't understand this we cannot establish His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. When our ears are dull of hearing we cannot receive faith to fulfill God's will.
We see this in Matthew 13:15 where Jesus instructs His disciples about parables and tells them the people are not receiving when they are dull of hearing. The religious could not hear because they moved in tradition and form. They sat and listened to the Word being taught but could not hear it. This opens the door for the enemy to steal our provision.
Matthew 13:19 When anyone hears the Word of the Kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart.
When we hear what the Spirit is saying to us, Truth can be established to product faith and faith will bring God's will for us into our lives. When the seed of the Word takes root in us, the enemy cannot steal from us.
Let's partner with the Holy Spirit and have ears to hear what He is saying so that we can walk by faith and establish God's will upon the earth.
