"If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land" (Isa. 1:19).

How is faith that produces miracles? It has a price and is moved by obedience.
What has been our food? tears, anguish, despair, sadness?
There is no way a person be obedient if not humble. Obedience goes with humility. So it is not enough just to read and hear the word, but we have to practice it as well. Hebrews 11:8-9 tells us that Abraham heard the voice of God and obeyed without even knowing where he was going. Faith is an array of obedcer. When we have faith and God asks us something, nothing is too big or difficult, because we know in whom we believe. When God takes us from somewhere, not to destroy, is to add in our lives.
Faith is not based on what a man sees (Heb. 11:1). We can not base our faith in what we see or feel, but we have to base our faith on what God's word says and she says that the just shall live by faith (HC.2: 4). Faith is not complicated, it's simple faith, man is complicating. The palvra of God has power (Matt. 8:13), our role is to believe and practice it, then yes, we will see great miracles happen.
Mary was a simple woman, she heard the voice of God, believed and said meet me in your will. She did not look paras circumstances and not to the difficulties he was to face, they just obeyed the voice of God. God does not operate in the human system but the system supernatural. The faith that produces miracles has no place for doubts. The faith that works miracles is a faith of obedience, simple and has no room for doubt (Mt 21:21). You know why we doubt, have fears? It is because they have unresolved things in our lives: secret sins unconfessed, grief, anger, resentment, pride and other feelings that are kept in our hearts. To have a faith that produces miracles must have a pure heart, a separate life to God.
Faith produces certainty, doubt produces uncertainty.
Faith generates life, creates doubt death.
Faith produces hope, doubt produces despair.
Faith begets success, doubt generates failure.
The choice is ours. Let us choose faith or doubt?
May God bless you mightily ...
