The Benefits of Having Faith in God

The Benefits of Faith

Abram was probably stressed because he did not have children and so he asked God, "What will You give me because I am childless and my heir is Eliezer my servant?" (Genesis 15:2)

The Word of God then came to Abram saying, "Your servant shall not be your heir, but your heir shall be your own child.(Genesis 15:4) 

God then took Abram outside and told him, "Look up toward heaven and count the stars if you can for so shall be your descendants.(Genesis 15:5)

And Abram believed the Lord and God accounted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:6) 

Therefore, after you pray and ask God what you should do about your stressful situation, you must decide to believe what He tells you. 

If God answers you by reminding you of a Scripture, decide to believe it even if it seems impossible like the Word which He gave Abram, of having numerous descendants when he was an old man married to an old, barren woman.     

Decide to believe God simply because With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26) and you can therefore receive what you are praying for even if it is humanly impossible.

Other benefits of having faith in God include:
1. You please God because Without faith it is impossible to please God(Hebrews 11:6)

2. You can protect yourself from the attacks of the devil because The shield of faith enables you to put out all the darts fired by the wicked one. (Ephesians 6:16)

3. Nothing will be impossible for you (Matthew 17:20) because If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there" and it will move. (Matthew 17:20)

4. God can credit you with righteousness the way He credited Abram for believing Him. (Genesis 15:6)  

5. You can receive miraculous healing like the many people in the Bible who Jesus told "Your faith has made you well". (Mark 5:34, Luke 17:19)

Therefore, decide to have faith by deciding to believe the Bible.
