Faith Makes a Difference

Your faith has made you well (Mark 5:34)

The book of Mark reveals the power of faith in the indi- vidual’s life. Here are some great examples of this: 1) “When Jesus saw their faith, He (forgave and healed)” - Mark 2:5; 2) “Daughter, your faith has made you well” – Mark 5:34; 3) “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who be- lieves” – Mark 9:23; 4) “Go your way, your faith has made you well” – Mark 10:52; and 5) “Have faith in God . . . who- ever says to this mountain, ‘be removed’ . . . and does not doubt . . . but believes . . . he will have whatever he says . . . whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” - Mark 11:22-24. God’s full salvation is released by faith. It is also re- stricted by unbelief (see Mark 6 where Jesus was limited by a lack of faith in Nazareth, and look also at Mark 4:40; 9:19). A major turning point in the Christian life is this: having the belief that our faith makes a difference in what we and our descendents experience in health, prosperity, mental clarity, ministry effectiveness, longevity of life, blessings, and protection; and believing that our unbelief will restrict the flow of these kingdom benefits.

Surely these thoughts must be understood in cooperation with other important truths; but we must believe our faith (or our unbelief) makes a difference, or we will live far below God’s highest will for our lives.

Declare: Like Abraham, I am strengthened in faith daily. Kingdom advancement and kingdom benefits are increas- ingly being released in my life because of my faith. I am a “difference maker” for everyone in my life, both now and af- ter I leave planet earth.
