God Honors Faith
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. — HEBREWS 11:6
A number of years ago during the early days of the Pentecostal movement, I read about an outstanding healing evangelist. At one particular meeting, there were four people in wheelchairs who had been pushed down to the front. After the evangelist preached and gave the invitation, he walked off the platform and spoke to those in the wheelchairs.
He said to the first one, “I command you to rise and walk in Jesus’ Name.” He just got up and walked out of that chair. The evangelist said to the second one, “I command you to rise and walk in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” He rose up and walked right out of the chair. Then he said to the third one, “I command you to rise and walk in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” He got up and walked right out of the chair. The evangelist said to the fourth one, “I command you to rise and walk in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” And he said, “I can’t. Didn’t you see them push me in here?” The evangelist had to walk off and leave him there.
Some people might say, “If that evangelist healed three of them, why didn’t he heal the fourth one?” The evangelist didn’t heal any of them. The Lord healed three of them. Why didn’t the Lord heal the other one? Because the fourth one didn’t act on what was said.
God honors faith. God is a faith God. He operates on principles of faith. Find out how God works and work with Him. Then you’ll get results.
Confession: I act on what God said in His Word. God honors faith. He is a faith God. I choose to cooperate with Him and act on principles of faith. Then I see results.
