Many people are suffering and hoping that one day God will have mercy on them, and a magic will take place. They hope that they will see their problems vanish and be gone forever. However, many are still waiting for that day and are very devastated by their problems. The fact is that God doesn’t function by mercy but by faith. Mercy follows faith. It is faith first. That’s why the bible says:

Matthew 9:27-30 NKJV
When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!”
And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened.

They were begging for mercy, however, the Lord wanted to know whether they believed or not. He wanted them to declare their faith. You see, God’s power will be released and your problems will lose their power when you release your faith.

Dear reader, please learn that it is going to be according to your faith. You believe first and next is the mercy of God coming upon you. God functions by the principle of faith, that’s why it is written:

Mark 9:23 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

If you can believe. Don’t wait anymore, exercise your faith. Call upon the Lord Jesus right now and ask him by faith what you need. Don’t accept your situation or conditions that are contrary to the will of God. Rebel by faith against the works of the devil in your life and God will be pleased. It is faith first and mercy after.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

God bless you.
