Do We All Have the Same Amount of Faith?
Romans 12:3 says, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” God has dealt to every man THE measure of faith. Be very honest as you ask yourself this question: How much faith do I have in the measure of faith God dealt to me? Do you think maybe God gave you a smaller measure of His faith than He gave anyone else? God is no respecter of persons. The measure you were given when you received Jesus as Lord was enough to cause you to be born again. It is enough to bring victory over anything the world can throw at you.
When you made Jesus Christ the Lord of your life the faith of God took up residence in your heart. It is the gift of God. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:8, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” Everything in this verse is the gift of God. The grace is the gift of God, the salvation is the gift of God and the faith to receive salvation is the gift of God. It is not human or psychological faith. The faith that was imparted to you when you became a new creation is God’s own brand of faith.
According to Jesus, if you’re a whosoever (and that covers just about everyone) you can and should have the mountain-moving faith of God. The gift of God’s faith was given to you to keep. It resides within your spirit. It is in there to be developed and used in your daily life. Hebrews 10:38 says, “Now the just shall live by faith.” God has given you this powerful faith to sustain you in this life. “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove…” (Matthew 17:20). It is so powerful that even a measure as big as a mustard seed can pluck up a mountain and cast it into the sea.
The measure of faith you received is enough to do whatever it is called upon to do. And Jesus is the author and finisher of it. God is a faith being. You are born of Him. You are a faith being. God does not do anything outside of faith. With His faith living in you, you are to operate the same way. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
