Before Hope is Faith
A little bit of faith brings healing of the mind and body, and freedom from the things of this world. You cannot have the kind of hope needed for a miracle without faith in a God that can perform them. So first help our unbelief.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Free from the World (The Mind)
2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
We know because of our Faith
2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
Salvation is a gift from God
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
Our Faith Overcomes our troubles
1 John 5:
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
We may not see it but we know it’s real
11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.
The healing is free by Faith
16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.
