Putting Faith into Practice- Part 1

Believers sometimes have trouble knowing how to use their faith.  We are told in the Word the definition of faith, but often we don’t seem to understand how to put our faith into practice.  In this message, we will focus on practicing faith for healing and finances.

Scriptures:

Hebrews 11:1:   Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.  NIV

Now faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see.  Berean

Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.  TPT

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  NKJ

 

Ephesians 2: 8, 9:  8 For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.   Berean

Romans 10: 8-10:  8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.    Berean

HEALING: 

 Isaiah 53: 1-5:  1 Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?  2 He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. 

He had no stately form or majesty to attract us, no beauty that we should desire Him.  3 He was despised and rejected by men, 

a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief.  Like one from whom men hide their faces, He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.  4 Surely He took on our infirmities and carried our sorrows; yet we considered Him stricken by God, struck down and afflicted.  5 But He was pierced for our transgressions,

He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.  Berean

1 Peter 2: 24:  “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”  NIV


The burden of our sins He Himself carried in His own body to the Cross and bore it there, so that we, having died so far as our sins are concerned, may live righteous lives. By His wounds yours have been healed.   Weymouth

24 He himself carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we would be dead to sin and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding.  TPT

 

FINANCES:

 

Matthew 6: 24:  “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.  NIV

“No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.  NKJ  mammon-aramaic term for money

How could you worship two gods at the same time? You will have to hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t worship the true God while enslaved to the god of money!”  TPT

 

Ecclesiastes 5:10:   He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.  ESV

 

Ecclesiastes 2: 10, 11:  10 Anything my eyes desired, I did not deny myself. I refused my heart no pleasure. For my heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor. 11 Yet when I considered all the works that my hands had accomplished and what I had toiled to achieve, I found everything to be futile, a pursuit of the wind; there was nothing to be gained under the sun.    Berean

 Luke 6: 37, 38:   37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”

 

Malachi 3:10: Bring all the tithes (the tenth) into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you [so great] a blessing until there is no more room to receive it.  Amplified
