Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham – Galatians 3:6-7

Romans 10:6-8 explains that there’s the righteousness which is of faith, and that righteousness speaks. What exactly does it speak? Let’s read: “But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, who shall ascend into heaven? (That is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, who shall descend into the deep? (That is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach.”

Notice the underlined portion again; it says concisely, “Don’t ask God ‘How?’” That’s a principle of faith in the Kingdom of God. Don’t ask Him how the miracle is going to happen; He’s too big to be asked “How?” Leave the ‘how’ to Him. Stop trying to figure out how your faith will work and produce the miracle you need right now. Your responsibility is to keep speaking and acting on the Word.

When you want things to happen in a certain way, don’t ask “How is God going to do it?” He’s the God of all flesh; the Monarch of the universe, there’s nothing too hard for Him. He’s your “how!” Don’t ask Him, or try to rationalize how His Word will come to pass in your life.

Consider Abraham: he believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. The Bible says he made an unqualified committal of himself to God’s Word. Against hope, he believed in hope, that he would become the father of many nations, in line with God’s Word to him (Romans 4:18). He was fully persuaded that, what God had promised, He was also able to perform (Romans 4:21)

Rather than ask God ‘How?’, the latter part of Romans 10:8-10 tells us how faith talks: it speaks the same thing with God in consent, and that settles it forever! Faith accepts, believes, endorses, and confesses God’s Word as absolute truth, and acts accordingly irrespective of what what you feel, see, going through.

Confession

The word of faith is in my heart, and in my mouth; that’s the Word of faith by which I live. I speak the same things in consent with the Word: I’m victorious, prosperous, healthy, marvelously helped and favoured of the Lord today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
