How You Can Go From the Word to A Miracle

What Is Faith?

Faith is so critical to victorious living that we must daily refresh our minds with it. Only through our faith can we experience God’s miracles in our lives, and without faith, it is impossible to please Him so that He may manifest those miracles. Making your faith work miracles for you requires understanding the true meaning of faith. Otherwise, you’ll stifle the free flow of both your faith and your miracles.

       In the simplest term, Godly faith is the substance of things hoped for (Heb. 11:1). That means that faith is something substantive, and it is what makes the things that we pray for (hope for) to manifest. Because faith is a something, then it can be measured. Romans 12:3 confirms this by saying that God has dealt to every Believer, a measure of faith. Faith is neither your beliefs nor your trust in God. Rather, faith is the power that enables you to believe God. So, think of your faith as a type of power or spiritual force that God gave to you to enable you believe Him.

Perfecting Your Faith

How then do we go from the word of God to the miracle written in it? Most of us would say, believe. Well, belief is just the starting point. For example, Jesus exhorted all those who sought miracles from Him to believe (Matt. 8:13, Mark 5:36, Mark 9:23), yet when you read the details, you find that, they not only believed with their faith, they also strongly confessed and convincingly acted on it before their miracles came. This act of BELIEVING, CONFESSING, and ACTING on your faith, is called, perfecting your faith, and if done properly, you’ll always obtain a miracle. In other words, to go from hearing the word to receiving a miracle, you need to perfect your faith by BELIEVING, CONFESSING and ACTING on it.

Faith Must Believe

The first step in experiencing the miracle written into the word of God is to fully believe what the word says. The only way to do this successfully is to act like a child; confidently accepting what the word says as absolute truth, and refusing to yield to any unbelief and doubt lurking in your mind. Hebrews 11:6 says it all: “he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarding of those who diligently seek Him.” Be like the Roman centurion who fully believed that Jesus has authority to heal all sickness, and so he came to Him, confidently pleading with Him, saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed and dreadfully tormented;” come and heal him. He heard, believed and acted by  coming to Him.

Faith Must Confess

To confess your faith is to verbally say what God is saying to you in His word. In other words, imitate God. For example, when you declare, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” you are confessing your faith for the miracle of supernatural abilities to excel in all your endeavors. When you declare, “with His own blood, Jesus entered the most holy place in heaven and redeemed me before the Father. Therefore, I have overcome you enemies by His name and by the blood of His sacrifice,” you are confessing your faith in Jesus for your deliverance from satan and all his evil spirits. When you declare, “Jesus took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses. The chastisement for my peace was upon Him, and by His stripes, I was healed,” you are confessing your faith in Jesus for healing. When you declare, “Let God who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed I have sown and increase the fruits of my righteousness, while enriching me generously in all things, and making all grace abound to me,” you are confessing your faith in God for prosperity. When Jesus says to the centurion, “I will come and heal your servant,” he likewise confessed his faith so impressively that Jesus marveled: “Lord, you are the authority over sickness. So don’t bother coming to my house, only speak a word and my servant will be healed.” These are just a few examples to confess your faith.

Faith Must Act

You’ve got to act on your faith before your miracles manifest. Just believing and confessing, rarely cuts it. Faith that does not have an action is dead. James 2:17 declares it all; “Faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Even Abraham our father convinced God of his strong faith when he offered Isaac his son on the altar. Through this act, scripture declares that his faith was made perfect (James 2:21-23). Did you ask God for a job? Act on it by applying for jobs. Did you ask for other things? Act on whatever action is naturally associated with it. For scripture declares: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” If you can’t readily identify an appropriate action, sow a daring sacrificial seed.


Work towards perfecting your faith by using it to believe the word, confess the word, and act on the word. It does not matter whether your faith is little or great. What matters is that you believe God with every once of faith in you. The Lord will take over from there and work you a miracle through His Spirit. Master this secret, and you’ll start experiencing more miracles. Amen!
