God Always Responds To Real Faith

Posted by Rev. Mark Slay

There are two things that work in your life. It is that power, that anointing that comes on you, but then it’s also your faith. If you’ve ever had hands laid on you and felt the power of the Holy Spirit, you now that it can be overwhelming. But, after that lifts, then you are left with you. You’re left with what you believe in the face of everything you’re facing.

I was dealing with a case recently and it was a life or death situation. In this case I was like a Pitbull locked on a bone – I’m not gonna let them go. I don’t care what the doctors say, I don’t care what they say, I just absolutely refused to let this person go. I said in my spirit, “That’s not gonna happen. You are NOT gonna do it! You’re NOT!” Now, it’s not going to be the anointing that accomplishes that. It will be my faith that accomplishes it in this case.

Many are trying to get healed and they think the anointing is going do it, and most likely it’s not. You are going to have to be determined in your faith. Your faith will move mountains. We’re familiar with Mark chapter 11:22-23. It says, “And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God.  Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.”

Notice the last part of those verses, “believe that you have received them”, it’s past tense. If you believe that you have received then that means you believe you’ve got it. That faith, that mere believing, will move a mountain. That faith WILL move a mountain.

Jesus never lies. Faith works!
