“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” Hebrews 11:3 (NKJV)
Our heavenly Father is a faith God.
What He sees does not affect Him. Instead, God speaks into being what He desires.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said…” Genesis 1:1-3 (NKJV)
As soon as God started speaking the darkness dissipated and the world, and everything in it, came into being. He had no doubt that He would see what He spoke. We should notice that there’s no verse in the creation story that speaks of how surprised God was when His words actually worked. This is the kind of faith God has given us.
“…as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith,” Romans 12:3b (NKJV)
The faith we’ve been given isn’t lesser, weaker or even faith of a different kind. Our Father wants us to operate in the same power and assurance as He does. He never desires to see us strain and struggle in confusion just wishing our it would work.
However, it can seem this way when we don’t have a good understanding of what faith is, how to use it and how we can strengthen our faith. It’s not God, or other people, or circumstances that frustrate us; we haven’t learned that our faith has the same potential as God’s faith.
When this revelation roots itself in our hearts, it will bear the fruit of victory.
