Great Faith for Greater Works
“When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”
Matthew 8:10
Faith is in levels! There is a “little faith” level, and there is also a “great faith” level. But for us to command greater works, we must engage great faith, not little faith.
What is a little faith?
Little faith is about not having enough or sufficient “faith-fund” in your “faith-bank”! In little faith, there is an element of fear and doubt. It’s like you are expressing doubt that God’s word or promises may not come to pass! Peter’s faith became little when he started entertaining fear due to the ferocious storm on the sea. People with little faith will easily give up on God and His Word. Little faith can hinder us from taking delivery of our inheritance in God or commanding greater results.
What is a great faith?
Great faith is devoid of fear and doubt. People who operate great faith know how to persist and endure until they get what they are believing God for. They are prepared to act on God’s word despite anxieties and ugly circumstances. They believe that nothing is impossible with God.
How do we engage great faith for Greater Works?
1. By developing Possibility Mentality!
“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
Mark 9:23
Until we engage possibility mentality, we may not accomplish greater works. An unusual supernatural ability is injected into us, propelling us towards achieving greater works, when we truly and strongly believe that greater work is possible mentally. If we cannot see the possibility of greater works from our mind realms, we cannot command greater works practically. Work on your mind! Develop a possibility mentality always!
2. By having Faith in the name of Jesus!
“And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”
Acts 3:16
Little work, great work or greater work is possible by the engagement of the power in the name of Jesus! If we truly want to command greater works, we must commit ourselves to using the name of Jesus in faith.
3. By being full of Faith!
“And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.”
Acts 6:8
Stephen was able to do great wonders and miracles because he was full of faith. What does it mean to be full of faith? It means to be completely saturated with faith. It means to completely trust in the ability and power of God without hesitation or reservations. You can cultivate great faith by growing in your faith walk! You can move up from “little faith” level to “great faith” level! Yes, you can! Yes, you can!
I decree and declare that your great faith will command greater works in Jesus mighty name.
Yours sincerely,
