2 Cor. 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.
Paul wrote, "We HAVING the same spirit of faith...." He didn't say, trying to have, or praying for, or hoping for; he said, having! Having what? The same spirit of faith. And what kind of faith is that? The kind that (1) believes, and (2) therefore speaks.
Isn't that the same kind of faith Jesus is talking about in Mark 11:23? The kind that:
· -believes in the heart
· -says with the mouth
· -then it comes to pass?
Yes! That's the same spirit of faith! And 2 Corinthians 4:13 says that we have it! Don't ever go by what you see or hear. That is not what the Bible says. Go by the eyes of faith and the ears of faith. Cast down every negative thought. Faith always has a good report.
Confession: I have the same spirit of faith. I believe and therefore I speak. I have a measure of the God-kind of faith. I have a measure of the kind of faith that created the worlds in the beginning. I have a measure of mountain-moving faith.
