How potent is your faith? Many Christians are struggling to have their faith produce the results they desire. Some Christians are even wondering whether “this faith thing” is real. It is real; however, their problem may be that their faith is not on the right foundation, which is the word of God. This article gives the reasons why your faith must be based on God’s word for your faith to work.
My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips – Psalms 89:34 (NKJV).
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God – Romans 10:17 (NKJV).
Christianity is called the “Faith”. Faith describes our Christian walk with God. We are saved by faith and we live by faith. Therefore, for you to make it as a Christian your faith must work; otherwise, you will be constantly defeated by the enemy when you’re only to reach out for victory (Already given to you by Jesus) by faith.
What is faith?
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). It is acting on God’s word. It is putting the word of God above situations and issues of life. It is believing the word of the Lord as being the absolute truth and holding on to it till it overcomes.
Therefore, it means that where there is no word of God, there will be no potent faith. God’s word is the foundation on which your faith can work. So, you must have faith in the word of the Lord.
Why Your faith must be based on God’s Word
1. Faith comes by hearing the word of God
Your faith is built up as you hear the word: while studying the word, listening to anointed messages or reading anointed books. It doesn’t come by being current with the happenings around you, rather what comes on you most of the time is fear (Faith in the devil). As you hear the Lord speak to you through the above channels, your faith grows to believe Him to do what He had said He would do.
2. God does nothing outside His word
The Lord has no plans of breaking His covenant or altering what has gone out of His mouth. He will not change His words for any reason or anybody whatsoever. Whatever you want Him to do for you must be in line with what He had said in His word. Therefore, for you to get the Lord’s attention, your faith must be based on His word.
3. God watches over His word to perform it
The Lord is not moved by our circumstances or tears per se, but He is always moved by faith in His word. He watches to see you exercise faith in His word for Him to perform it in your life. This is why two people may be crying out to Him for help, one will be answered and the other will not be answered. One is exercising faith on what God had said and the other is not.
4. God hears us only when we pray according to His word

The scriptures state that when the Lord hears you, your answer is sure. However, He will only hear you when you pray according to His will, which is His word. The language God understands is His word. Anything outside His word, He will not understand. If He doesn’t understand you, you have not communicated at all, and so you will not get an answer from Him.
