The Word of God is the will of God made known. Do I believe what God has declared or do I believe what men have declared? What did Jesus say about faith? Everyone should take a journey into "The Concept of Faith" and allow the truths of God's Word to penetrate their heart. Only the declared Word of the Lord is the basis of faith. Faith is a pathway to answered prayer. Faith is to believe that our God is who He has said that He is, and that He will do what He has declared He will do. A relationship with Jesus is developed around the concept of faith. We are to pray in faith, being fully expectant that God will hear and that He will answer. Faith will turn on the switch to the power of God, as faith pleases Him. Vernon J.
