In This Blog I endeaver to share the nuggets OF WISDOM I have received from time spent communing with the lord
Romans 10:17 - Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Many have thought this verse to mean we will get faith just by jamming our heads full of the knowledge of the word and then take the action of repeating it over and over again. The logos word by itself will not produce any fruit in ones life unless it becomes Holy Spirit anointed or God breathed to us.
I like to say the verse this way. Faith comes by hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit and hearing by the rhema word of God.
James 2:20 - Faith without works is dead.
Many take this scripture to mean that we are to just repeat a scripture and then prescribe our own faith action that corresponds to that scripture.
Example: I knew a person who wanted their eyes to be healed so they began declaring the scripture in mark 11:24, that they could have what they say, and proceeded to throw their glasses away. The problem; they couldn't see while driving! It wasn't based on the direction of The Lord for them. It was based on their desire and God's desire, but not His way, or His timing! It takes time to grow in the nurture and admonition of The Lord.
Solution - I like to say the scripture this way; faith without the corresponding action of obedience to the voice of God speaking through the rhema or Spirit anointed Word to my spirit is dead!
2 Corinthians 3:6. - the letter (or logos word by itself) kills, but the Spirit gives life! John 6:63 - It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life.
Nugget from The Lord - "Anything from the head is dead"!
