The God Kind of Faith – Myles Munroe

Faith Like That by deborah bell

In Romans 10:8, Paul gave a qualification: “‘The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,’ that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming” (emphasis added). The word he wanted to plant in believers’ hearts was the word of faith he was preaching, the one given by God.
One of the most important illustrations in the Bible concerning faith and prayer is found in Mark 11:12–14: The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again. And his disciples heard him say it. What did Jesus do? He used words.
What kind of words? Words of faith.
Remember that faith is active belief. When He spoke to the tree, He actively believed the tree would die. What happened to the tree Jesus addressed? “In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!’” (Mark 11:20–21).
Most translations give Jesus’ reply as, “Have faith in God” (v. 22). Yet this is not the way it was written in the original Greek. Its literal translation is, “Have the God kind of faith.”
Father, I want the God kind of faith. I want to walk in faith as Jesus did, to speak words of faith and believe in my heart. Please show me the way. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: The Lord wants to plant His Word of faith in each believer’s heart.
