READ: Mark 11:20-26
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith
1 John 5:4
Faith is a firm belief in something for which there is no proof. It is also a belief in God.
Faith is the personal trait that will cause you to overcome big problems and obstacles. You see, people who have faith are able to move mountains. A mountain is a big problem. In order to move mountains around and become “he that hath” you will need the positive trait of faith. Great achievements are usually great victories over insurmountable challenges.
Faith is the personal trait that causes an individual to have a good report. “For by it the elders obtained a good report” (Hebrews 11:2).
To have a good report that you are experiencing abundance, you need to be a little wiser than the neighbourhood monkey. You will need to see the correlation between positive traits and prosperity. Bible teaches us that good reports were given to men of faith. Good things are usually said about positive faithfilled people who believed in a vision before it became a reality. You always remember the people who believed in you before things worked out. There are people who come along but never believe in you or your vision. Such people will not have a good report. A good report is for those who believe when there is nothing to see.
Faith is the personal trait that makes a person victorious. Victory is given to men of faith. Without faith you will never be victorious and become “he that hath.” The victory that you need will be provided – through your faith in God.
