THIS KIND OF FAITH IS GUARANTEED BY SOMETHING INVISIBLE, YET CLEARLY SEEN



FAITH: HIS invisible Holy Spirit CLEARLY SEEN
 “…Since the creation of the world God’s INVISIBLE QUALITIES—his eternal power HIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE—have been CLEARLY SEEN, being UNDERSTOOD FROM WHAT HAS BEEN MADE, so that people are without excuse…” (Romans 1:20 NIV).
*
 “…THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK unto you, they ARE SPIRIT, and they ARE LIFE…” (John 6:63 KJV). “…GOD IS SPIRIT” (John 4:24 KJV).  “…The Lord is that Spirit [too]…” (2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV). “…THERE ARE THREE that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost (SPIRIT): and THESE THREE ARE ONE.…” (1 JOHN 5:6-8 KJV). “…the HOLY SPIRIT “GIVES” birth to SPIRITUAL LIFE…” (John 3:6 NLT).
“…I came that they may have LIFE, and have it abundantly..” (John 10:10 KJV).
“…God has given [you] his [invisible] Spirit as PROOF that [you]… live (are ALIVE) in him and he [dwells]… in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT). “…He who has the Son HAS THE LIFE; he who does not have the Son of God DOES NOT HAVE THE LIFE…” (1 John 1:2 NASB).
“…THERE ARE THREE that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost (Spirit): and THESE THREE ARE ONE.…” (1 JOHN 5:6-8 KJV). God commands. Jesus speaks. The Holy Spirit does.
God is the Father. Jesus is the Word of the Father. The Holy Spirit is the Power of the Father. “…THESE THREE ARE ONE.…” (1 JOHN 5:6-8 KJV).
The FATHER’s (God) WORD (Jesus) is POWER (Holy Spirit) and they are ONE. “…THERE ARE THREE that bear record in heaven, the Father (GOD), the Word (JESUS), and the Holy Ghost (POWER): and THESE THREE ARE ONE.…” (1 JOHN 5:6-8 KJV).
Spiritual LIFE is given to you through the FATHER’s POWERFUL WORD, which ACTIVATES his Holy Spirit. God gave LIFE to the dry BONES in the 37th chapter of Ezekiel after the BONES HEARD the POWERFUL WORD of the FATHER, which ACTIVATED the WORK of the Holy Spirit. “…Prophesy (SPEAK), [Ezekiel]… and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people …I will PUT my SPIRIT in you and you will LIVE …Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord...’” (Ezekiel 37 NIV). “…God has given [you] his [invisible] Spirit as PROOF that [you]… live (come alive) in him and he [dwells]… in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT). “…He who has the Son HAS THE LIFE; …” (1 John 1:2 NASB).
 “…As [Ezekiel]… was prophesying (SPEAKING GOD’S POWERFUL WORD), there was a noise, a rattling sound, (THE HOLY SPIRIT IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO WORK) and THE BONES CAME TOGETHER, BONE TO BONE. [Ezekiel]… LOOKED, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them. [then]… BREATH ENTERED THEM; they came to LIFE and STOOD UP on their feet—a vast army... I HAVE DONE IT, declares the Lord…’” (Ezekiel 37 NIV).
The POWER of GOD’s WORD, which activates his invisible Holy Spirit is CLEARLY SEEN.  “…Since the creation of the world God’s INVISIBLE QUALITIESHIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE—have been CLEARLY SEEN, being UNDERSTOOD FROM WHAT HAS BEEN MADE, so that people are without excuse…” (Romans 1:20 NIV).
“… BY FAITH we understand that THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WAS FORMED at God’s command, that what we now SEE did not come from anything that can be SEEN (his invisible Holy Spirit)(Hebrews 11:3 NLT). “…BY THE WORD of the Lord the heavens were made (by the WORK of the invisible Holy Spirit), And by the breath of His mouth all their host…” (Psalms 33:6 NASB).
 “…The fruit of [God’s invisible Holy]… Spirit… is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control….” (Galatians 5:22-23).
“…Since the CREATION of the world God’s INVISIBLE QUALITIESHIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE—have been “CLEARLY SEEN”, being UNDERSTOOD FROM WHAT HAS BEEN MADE…” (Romans 1:20 NIV). “…Then God SAID, “Let there be light”; AND THERE WAS LIGHT…” (Genesis 1:3 NASB).
God has gifted believers with his Spirit of Faith that RELIES on and RESPONDS to GOD’s WORD. Speaking positive things to a situation is NOT the same as speaking “LIFE” to it by the WORD of God. “…Man LIVES (has life) by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord.…” (Dueteronomy 8:3 NASB). “…But he answered, It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that comes from the mouth of God…’” (Matthew 4:4 NASB).
“…Jesus (the LIVING Word) said… I am the LIFE…..” (John 11:25 KJV). “…THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK unto you, they ARE SPIRIT, and they ARE LIFE…” (John 6:63 KJV). God “…dealt to every man (believer) THE MEASURE OF FAITH...” (Romans 12:3 KJV).
God has total, complete, and absolute FAITH in the POWER of his OWN WORD and the WORK of his OWN Holy Spirit. “…Then God SAID, “Let there be light”; AND THERE WAS LIGHT…” (Genesis 1:3 NASB). “…Then God SAID (God commanded with faith in his OWN word and his OWN Holy Spirit), “Let there be light” (Jesus, the Word spoke his command); AND THERE WAS LIGHT (The Holy Spirit did what was spoken and commanded)…” (Genesis 1:3 NASB).
God's faith in his OWN WORD and HOLY SPIRIT was the certainty and guaranteed that something WOULD no doubt happen. “…So shall MY WORD be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it SHALL NOT return unto me void, but it SHALL ACCOMPLISH that which I please, and it SHALL PROSPER in the thing whereto I sent it…” (Isaiah 55:11 KJV). God says, I “…am WATCHING over my word to PERFORM it…” (Jeremiah 1:12 NASB).
The FATHER’s WORD is POWER. Thus, he gives YOU a measure of his OWN faith to empower you to hope and expect his WORD to WORK. God “…dealt to every man (believer) the measure of faith...” (Romans 12:3 KJV). ). …God… works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose…” (Philippians 2:13 NIV). “….Apart from Me (His indwelling Spirit), you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV).
The FATHER’s WORD is POWER. The New Testament attempts to describe God’s power as surpassingly great or strong and exceeds beyond what is known or is possible. God “… is able TO DO exceeding abundantly ABOVE all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20 KJV). “…The things which are impossible with men are POSSIBLE with God…” (Luke 18:27 KJV).  “…I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27 KJV). 
The Father’s word SPOKE the entire universe into existence and his WORD continually sustains all of life. His WORD activates the WORK of the Holy Spirit as witnessed in his saving grace, when he raised Jesus from the dead, and through his many miracles. Jesus said: “…The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (John 4:16-21 KJV).
“…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and WITH POWER: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for GOD WAS WITH HIM. And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem…” (Acts 10:38-39 KJV).
The FATHER’s WORD is POWER. The Holy Spirit and the Spirit of Faith are different sides of the same coin. They both respond to and are activate by the WORD
Therefore, the Spirit of Faith, which was given to you, through the indwelling Holy Spirit, relies on and responds to God’s WORD. “…FAITH COMETH by hearing, and hearing by the [powerful]… WORD of God…” (Roman 10:17 KJV).
When you say “My faith” are you talking about your “fallen” human faith or your gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith?
The gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith HEARS and RESPONES to God’s Word; but “fallen” human faith can only hear God’s word, but can NOT truly accept it.“…The person WITHOUT the Spirit DOES NOT accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. ” (2 Corinthians 2:12-15 KJV). . “…The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so…” (Romans 8:7 NIV).
 In addition, “….Apart from Me (the indwelling Holy Spirit), you can do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV). “…God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son (The WORD) “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…The sower SOWETH THE WORD …The seed is the WORD OF GOD ….. THE WORD …was sown in THEIR HEARTS…” (Mark 4:14-15 & Luke 8:11 KJV).  “…God has given [you] his Spirit as PROOF that [you]… live (are alive) in him and he [dwells]…in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT).
“…I will put a NEW SPIRIT in you…” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT). Therefore, “Examine yourself, whether ye be in the FAITH; PROVE your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is IN YOU” (2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV).  “…Ye shall know them by their fruits…” (Matthew 7:16 KJV). "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so PROVE to be My disciples” (John 15:8 NIV). “…The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance…” (Galatians 5:22-23 KJV). “…God has given [you] his Spirit as PROOF that [you]… live (are alive) in him and he [dwells]…in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT).
God gives Believers everything NEW, including a NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature: OLD THINGS are passed away; behold, “ALL” THINGS are become NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).
“…I WILL GIVE you a NEW heart, and I will put a NEW SPIRIT in you…” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT). “… Give yourselves completely to God, for you were DEAD (unresponsive), but now you have NEW LIFE. ” (Romans 6 NLT).
“… God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (A NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith)…” (Romans 12:3 NIV).
God is saying: "…Behold, I will do something NEW,it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it?…” (Isaiah 43:19-20 NASB). ""Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare NEW things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you..." (Isaiah 42:9 NASB).  “…Behold, “ALL” THINGS are become NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).
The NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of FAITH is necessary to live the NEW LIFE in Christ. It does NOT originate from YOU. It is imparted to you through the indwelling Holy Spirit. “…Jesus the AUTHOR (originator) and FINISHER (sustainer) OF [Y]OUR [indwelling Spirit of] …FAITH…” (Hebrews 12:2a KJV). “…HE WHICH HATH “BEGUN” A GOOD “WORK” IN YOU (the WORK of Faith) WILL “PERFORM” IT until the day of Jesus Christ…” (Philippians 1:6 KJV).
This may be the reason faith is such a confusing concept to understand.…Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV).
“…Be transformed by the renewing of your mind [about gifted, indwelling Spirit of FAITH)….” (Romans 12:2 KJV). The gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith is influenced by the WORD of GOD only.
Just because you believe something or anything deeply and determinedly won’t make it happen or come about. Or just because you HEAR something or anything; decide to believe it because it worked for others doesn’t mean it will work for you; no matter how determined you are. “…The flesh profiteth NOTHING…” (John 6:63 KJV).
If something or anything you believe does come to pass it is usually called luck or karma or something like that. God is usually NOT in it. “… If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have ALL FAITH, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I AM NOTHING…” (1 Corinthians 13:2 ASV). “…God is love…” (1 John 4:8 KJV). “…Faith which worketh by love…” (Galatians 5:6 KJV).
Sincere faith in something or anything won’t make it happen or necessarily get you what you want. “….Don't put your confidence in … people (not even yourself); there is no help for you there….” (Psalms 146: 3 NLT).
Many Believers have felt they have sincerely and wholeheartedly believed God for something or anything, but it didn’t materialize. “…May HE (God) “GIVE YOU” the POWER to accomplish all the good things YOUR FAITH (gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith) prompts you to do…” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 NLT).
When “fallen” human faith fails, others may tell you that you didn’t have enough faith and that’s NOT true. All Believers have “…the measure of faith (NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith)…” (Romans 12:3 NIV).
However, this is one of the places sincere and wholehearted believers start to doubt God and doubt his WORD. “….Don't put your trust in mere human beings (including yourself)….” (Isaiah 2:22 NLT).
I am not claiming to have the answer, but in my experience, this is what I think I’ve discovered. The problem is not faith, but your perception of faith. The bible says you have “…the measure of faith (NEW gift, indwelling Spirit of Faith)…” (Romans 12:3 NIV).
The measure of faith” is a NEW kind of indwelling faith that God gives to you. “… God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith)…” (Romans 12:3 NIV). “…Behold, “ALL” THINGS are become NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “…Jesus [is now]…the AUTHOR (originator) and FINISHER (sustainer) OF [Y]OUR [indwelling Spirit of]…FAITH…” (Hebrews 12:2a KJV). “…HE WHICH HATH “BEGUN” A GOOD “WORK” IN YOU WILL “PERFORM” IT until the day of Jesus Christ…” (Philippians 1:6 KJV).
This NEW gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith is developed from HEARING God’s WORD. “…Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Roman 10:17 KJV).
Promises and blessings are received by faith, by your new gifted, Spirit of Faith. “…It shall be done to you according to your faith (NEW gift, indwelling Spirit of Faith).…" (Matthew 9:29 NASB).FAITH (new gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith)  IS the substance (certainty, assurance) of things HOPED for, the EVIDENCE (Proof) of things not seen…” (Hebrew 11:1 KJV).
You have a NEW kind of gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith that depends on God’s WORD in order to develop or become activated. It WILL develop or become activated when you exercise with the WORD of God. “… God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith (NEW gift)…” (Romans 12:3 NIV). . “…FAITH COMETH by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Roman 10:17 KJV). “…It is the SPIRIT who “GIVES” LIFE; the flesh profits nothing…” (John 6:63 NASB). “…THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK unto you, they ARE SPIRIT, and they ARE LIFE…” (John 6:63 KJV). ).
 “…God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…The sower SOWETH THE WORD …The seed is the WORD OF GOD ….. THE WORD …was sown in THEIR HEARTS…” (Mark 4:14-15 & Luke 8:11 KJV). “…Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, ALL THINGS are possible to him that believeth….” (Mark 9:23 KJV). “…I can do ALL THINGS through Christ which strengtheneth me…” (Philippians 4:13 KJV).
“…Behold, “ALL” THINGS are become NEW…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). “…Walk in NEWNESS of life…” (Romans 6:4 KJV).  “…That we may serve in the NEW way of the Spirit…” (Romans 7:6 KJV). “…WE SHALL LIVE with “HIM” BY THE POWER OF GOD toward you….” (2 Corinthians 13:4 KJV). ). “…I can do ALL THINGS through Christ WHICH strengtheneth me…” (Philippians 4:13 KJV). “….apart from [Jesus I can]… do nothing…” (John 15:5 NIV).
Why does God give you a “measure of faith” (Romans 12:3)? It makes God truly happy or gives him pleasure to do good things for you. “…That …God would ….fulfil all the GOOD PLEASURE of his GOODNESS (toward you), and [FULFILL]… THE WORK OF FAITH WITH POWER…” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 KJV).
In addition, “…it is your Father's GOOD PLEASURE to GIVE YOU the kingdom (all that he has to share or all the blessings of redemption)…” (Luke 12:32 KJV). “… I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven…” (Matthew 16:19 KJV).
Historically, in the Old Testament, only a chosen and trusted servant would be given a key to the King’s household with ALL authority, freedom, and access to open or close and to go in and out or as he pleased.
God, the Kings of kings says, “…the world is MINE, and the fulness thereof…” (Psalm 50:12 KJV). Jesus said to God, “…All mine are thine, and THINE ARE MINE…” (John 17:10 KJV). Jesus said, “…He (the indwelling Holy Spirit) shall receive of MINE, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath ARE MINE: therefore said I, that he shall TAKE OF MINE, and shall shew it unto you…” (John 16:14-15 KJV). “…[God, through Christ]… freely give [you]… ALL things?...” (Romans 8:32 KJV). “…ALL THINGS are your's [in Christ]…” (1 Corinthians 3 KJV).
What is the benefit of having a “measure of faith” (Romans 12:3)? God wants and truly desires to bless you, because he loves you. The Spirit of Faith is meant to be a blessed benefit to you. “…To the saints …who are faithful “in” Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, WHO HAS BLESSED US with “EVERY” SPIRITUAL BLESSING in the heavenly places in Christ, just as HE CHOSE US in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would BE HOLY AND BLAMELESS BEFORE HIM. IN LOVE He predestined us to ADOPTION AS SONS through Jesus Christ to Himself, ACCORDING TO THE KIND INTENTION OF HIS WILL, to the praise of the glory of HIS GRACE, which HE FREELY BESTOWED ON US IN THE BELOVED. In Him WE HAVE REDEMPTION through His blood, the FORGIVENESS of our trespasses, according to the riches of HIS GRACE WHICH HE LAVISHED ON US. In all wisdom and insight He MADE KNOWN TO US THE MYSTERY OF HIS WILL, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him.  …In Him also we have OBTAINED AN INHERITANCE, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.  In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also]believed, you WERE SEALED IN HIM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE....  I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might  which He brought about in Christ…” (Ephesians 1 NLT).
The “measure of faith” is an expression of God’s love for you (Romans 12:3)? God loves you, for free, on purpose, with no requirement on your part and no benefit on his. “…Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US... (1 John 4:10 KJV). We love, because HE FIRST LOVED US…” (1 John 4:19 ASV). For God SO LOVED the world, that he GAVE…” (John 3:16). God “SPARED NOT his own Son, but delivered him up FOR US ALL” (Romans 8:32 KJV). Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God SHOWED HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:7-9 NLT). “…There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life…” (John 15:13 NLT).
The gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith, therefore, ensures that …God [WILL] ….FULFILL all the THE WORK OF FAITH WITH POWER [in you]…” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 KJV). …May the God of peace… that great Shepherd of the sheep, EQUIP “you” with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us (faith with power) what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Hebrews 13:20-21 NIV).
The gifted, indwelling Spirit of Faith also ensures that “…God [WILL] ….FULFIL all the GOOD PLEASURE of his goodness [toward YOU]…” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 KJV). “…It is your Father's GOOD PLEASURE to GIVE YOU the kingdom…” (Luke 12:32 KJV). “…Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, WHO HAS BLESSED US with “EVERY” SPIRITUAL BLESSING in the heavenly places in Christ…” (Ephesians 1 NLT). “…I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly….” (John 10:10 KJV).
A “measure of faith” allows God to express his goodness toward you (Romans 12:3)? God is magnificently KIND and GOOD. He wants you to enjoy “……the riches of his GOODNESS….” (Romans  2:4 KJV). “… [So when] Moses said, “Now show me your GLORY.” …The Lord said, “I will cause all my GOODNESS to pass in front of you…” (Exodus 33:16-23 NIV). One of “…The fruit of the Spirit isGOODNESS….” (Galatians 5:22-23).  “…for the lord is GOOD” (Psalm 100:5 KJV). “Thou are GOOD and doest GOOD…” (Psalm 119:68 KJV). “…Oh how great is thy GOODNESS…” (Psalm 31:19 KJV). “…for he is GOOD…” (Psalm 107:1 KJV). “..The lord is GOOD…” (Nahum 1:7 KJV). “…GOOD and upright is the Lord…” (Psalm 25:8 KJV). “…For thou, Lord, is GOOD…” (Psalm 86:5 KJV). “…Surely GOODNESS and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life… (Psalms 23 KJV).
“…Since the CREATION of the world God’s INVISIBLE QUALITIESHIS ETERNAL POWER AND “DIVINE NATURE—have been “CLEARLY SEEN”…” (Romans 1:20 NIV).
“…The Lord is GOOD…” (Nahum 1:7 KJV). God’s GOODNESS is a reflection of his incomparable and unique benevolent excellence, his most honorable and desirous quality, his joyful piety or his happiness in being good to his people, his exceeding great undeserving kindness, his everlasting sufficiency, his unblemished wholesomeness,  his tender, compassionate, and gentle justice. One of “…The fruit of the Spirit isGOODNESS….” (Galatians 5:22-23).
God gave you the Spirit of Faith because he WANTED to be GOOD to you….just because. How many people do you know or how often are people good to you for absolutely NO reason?  
“…[So when] Moses said, “Now show me your GLORY.” …The Lord said, “I will cause ALL my GOODNESS to pass in front of you…” (Exodus 33:16-23 NIV).
Christians often praise God for his goodness and many say “…God is good ALL the time and ALL the time God is GOOD.”  Thou are GOOD and doest GOOD…” (Psalm 119:68 KJV). “…Oh how great is thy GOODNESS…” (Psalm 31:19 KJV). So God “…dealt to every man the measure of faith...” (Romans 12:3 KJV). “…live by faith, not by sight….” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “…Jesus said unto him, If THOU CANST BELIEVE, ALL THINGS are possible to him that believeth…” (Mark 9:23 KJV). I can DO ALL THINGS through Christ…” (Philippians 4:13 KJV). “…It is God who works IN YOU TO WILL and TO ACT (DO)” (Philippians 2:13 NIV).
God is so good, “…He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous…” (Matthew 5:45 NASB). “ …If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (Luke 11:13 NASB).
Because of God’s HOLY nature of love and goodness, you can “…walk by [the indwelling Spirit of]…faith...” through the empowerment and enablement of the indwelling Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “…Oh how great is thy GOODNESS…” (Psalm 31:19 KJV).  
God is happy to empower you with his Spirit of Faith. “…God [WILL] ….FULFIL all the GOOD PLEASURE of his goodness [toward YOU]…” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 KJV).
God knows his Spirit of Faith is the assurance or guaranteed YOU will get ALL that you hope for or expect from Him.Faith is the substance (assurance) of things hoped for …” (Hebrew 11:1 KJV).
The Father’s Word is Power. He gave you a measure of faith, like a key, to access all his household of promises and blessings. “… I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven…” (Matthew 16:19 KJV). ….The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want [for nothing]... ” (PSALM 23:1-3 NLT).
God loves you and desires to be good to you. It is his good pleasure to be extremely KIND to you so you will WANT for nothing. However, “….without [the indwelling Spirit of]…faith it is impossible to please God…” (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).
“…It was BY FAITH that Enoch was TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN WITHOUT DYING—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who PLEASED God.  And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely SEEK HIM...(Hebrews 11:5-6 NIV). “…Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou SEEK HIM, he will be found of thee…” (1 Chronicles 28:9 KJV). “…those that SEEK ME early shall find me…” (Proverbs 8:17 KJV). “…ye shall SEEK ME, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart…” (Jeremiahs 29:13 KJV).
“…Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years…” (Genesis 5:22 KJV). “…Anyone who wants to come to him MUST BELIEVE that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely SEEK HIM...(Hebrews 11:5-6 NIV). “….Without faith it is impossible to PLEASE God…” (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).
“…We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then THE WAY YOU LIVE will always honor and PLEASE the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better” (Colossians 1:9-10 NLT). “…Faith cometh by HEARINGTHE WORD of God” (Roman 10:17 KJV). “…THY WORD is truth (JOHN 17:17 KJV). “….without faith it is impossible to please God…” (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).
Jesus said, “…he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that PLEASE HIM…” (John 8:29 KJV).  “…a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well PLEASED…” (Matthew 3:17 KJV).  “…they that are in the flesh CANNOT PLEASE GOD…” (Romans 8:8 KJV).
Enoch pleased God and Jesus pleased God. They both walked closely with God while on earth. “…Enoch walked with God …” (Genesis 5:22 KJV). Jesus said, "I and my Father are one." (John 10:30 KJV).
Jesus was taken up to heaven. “…While they watched, He (Jesus) was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight…” (Acts 1:9 KJV). Enoch was taken up to heaven. “…Enoch was TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN without dying…” (Hebrews 11:5 NIV). And whosoever LIVETH and BELIEVETH(has divine faith) in me shall NEVER die. Believest thou this?” (John 8:51 KJV).
Walking closely with God by the Spirit of Faith will ensure that you also will be taken up to heaven one day and will never experience death. “…Walk BY FAITH...” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “…For the Lord himself will come down from heaven …Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be CAUGHT UP in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever…” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV).…I tell you, whoever obeys my word will NEVER see death (John 8:51 KJV).  
“…BY GRACE have ye been SAVED THROUGH FAITH…” (Ephesians 2:8-9 ASV).  “…walk BY FAITH...” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “….without faith it is impossible to please God…” (Hebrews 11:6 KJV). ). God “…dealt to every man the measure of faith...” (Romans 12:3 KJV).
Without the indwelling Spirit of Faith God is not pleased or he is not happy. God is not unhappy or displeased for himself, but for you. “….For Christ “PLEASED” NOT himself…” (Romans 15:3 KJV).  Love …is NOT self-seeking It always protects …Love never fails…” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 NIV).  
 “…God “….is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING that any should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance…” (2 Peter 3:9 KJV).  Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and SENT His Son...” (1 John 4:10 KJV).   
Therefore, Jesus abandoned any personal interest of his own for your well-being. “….For Christ “PLEASED” NOT himself…” (Romans 15:3 KJV). Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13 KJV).
God is pleased when he can walk intimately with his children, freely love them, and fully care for their every need. “…Faith which worketh by love…” (Galatians 5:6 KJV).
“…But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward” (Jeremiah 7:24 NLT).
But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires” (JEREMIAH 18:12 NLT).
However, The Lord is slow to anger and great in power…” (Nahum 1:3, Exodus 34:7, Numbers 14:18 KJV).  …the GOODNESS of God leadeth thee to repentance?” (Romans 2:4 ASV). ….the long-suffering of our Lord is salvation…” (2 Peter 3:15 KJV).
“…Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth…” (1 Corinthians 13 NIV). God finds happiness in being loving, kind, good and benevolent to you. That’s why “….without [the Spirit of]…faith it is impossible to please God…” (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).
It’s impossible to please him, because YOU are not reaping the benefits of his multiple blessings. Those moments of living without the utilization of the Spirit of Faith are not pleasing moments. In those moments God’s love continues for you, but he is not pleased FOR you.
In other words, God loves you, but is unhappy “for” you or not pleased “for” you. God is most happy when he sees “…[The indwelling Spirit of] Faith … worketh by love…” (Galatians 5:6 KJV). “…What is important is [the indwelling Spirit of] Faith expressing itself in love…” (Galatians 5:6 NLT). “…Walk by [the indwelling Spirit of] Faith...” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “…live by [the indwelling Spirit of] Faith, not by sight….” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV).
The Father’s Word is Power. He gave you a measure of faith as a sign of his love and kindness (Romans 12:3).
Also to ensure you had access to ALL his blessings and promises. God desires to be good to you just because and on purpose. Your happiness pleases God and your unhappiness does not please him.
When you are empowered by The Spirit of Faith, you know the following scriptures are truth: “…I will put a NEW SPIRIT in you…” (Ezekiel 36:26 NLT). “…God has given [you] HIS Spirit as PROOF that [you]… live (are alive) in him and he [dwells]…in [you]…” (1 John 4:13 NLT). “…God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son (The WORD) “INTO” OUR HEARTS…” (Galatians 4:6 NASB). “…The sower SOWETH THE WORD …The seed is the WORD OF GOD (Jesus) ….. THE WORD (Jesus) …was sown in THEIR HEARTS…” (Mark 4:14-15 & Luke 8:11 KJV).  “…It is God who works IN YOU to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose” (Philippians 2:13 NIV). … [You]…can do all things through Christ (The Word)… which strengtheneth [you]…” (Philippians 4:13 KJV).
 “…If any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature (BY THE indwelling HOLY SPIRIT): old things are passed away; behold, ALL THINGS are become NEW (BY THE indwelling HOLY SPIRIT)…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).  “…Walk in NEWNESS (by the indwelling Holy Spirit) of life…” (Romans 6:4 KJV). “…Walk by [indwelling] faith...” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV). “…live by [indwelling] faith, not by sight….” (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV).
“…Since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities (HIS HOLY SPIRIT)HIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE—have been CLEARLY SEEN, being UNDERSTOOD FROM WHAT HAS BEEN MADE…” (Romans 1:20 NIV). “…If any man be in Christ, he is [MADE] a NEW creature (BY THE indwelling HOLY SPIRIT)…” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV).
