Believe To Receive

He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. 
Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."
Mark 5:34

Luke 18:42
"Receive your sight!" Jesus replied. "Your faith has healed you."

Then he said to him, "Rise and go; your faith has made you well."
Luke 17:19

Luke 7:50
And Jesus told the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."

Matthew 8:13
Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! As you have believed, so will it be done for you."
 And his servant was healed at that very hour.

Matthew 9:29
Then He touched their eyes and said,
 "According to your faith will it be done to you."

Faith is unlike any other gift;
We have to believe before we can receive.
Often, in this world we believe when we see!
Not so with faith...
How can we get faith?
By getting to know the One in whom we place it.
How can we get to know Him?
Only one way; by getting into His Word and
acquainting ourselves with His loving promises.

This poem came out of my personal struggle with letting go
of anxiety and to put my trust wholly in God
(to let faith make me whole) 

When we believe
Then we receive
Faith cannot first behold
Trust must rely
On God’s reply
With courage brave and bold

Lord, God we pray
That come-what-may
Our faith will make us whole
When we believe
And then receive
The healing of the soul

Belief, my friend
Cannot pretend
Faith has no seen façade
But we receive
As we believe
The promises of God

Then pray we trust
And yield this dust
To He who knows all things
As we believe
We will receive
The perfect peace faith brings

When we believe
Then we receive
There is no other way
 But we will find
Sweet peace of mind
When we trust and obey

Isaiah 12:2
Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. 
For the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, 
and He also has become my salvation."

Isaiah 26:3-4
You will keep him in perfect peace,  
Whose mind is stayed on You, 
Because he trusts in You.
Trust in the Lord forever,
For in Yah, the Lord, is everlasting strength.
