When we put our faith in the fact that God loves us, we have faith to believe Him for everything. Let this message set you free to once again believe for the impossible... because He loves you.

Jesus become our more than enough
Galatians 5:6 "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything. But only faith working through love."
God's love for me activates my faith. When you know somebody loves you, you base your faith on their love not yours. When I am praying I have faith because I know He loves me.
Matthew 19:16-22 "A certain ruler asked him, "Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"... "You know the commandments; do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and your mother." He says, "All these things I have kept since I was a boy." When Jesus heard this he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Go sell everything you have and give it to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." When he heard this, he became very sad because he had great wealth."
This man who was keeping all the commandments since he was a boy didn't even get past the first commandment: thou shalt have no other Gods before me. His money was his God. God was showing him how worthless that is. Every time we come to God and we want something from God and we base it on how good we are, we're going to walk away disappointed because we're going to find out how not good we really are. The miracles of the Bible whose faith was based on the love of Jesus succeeded.
Matthew 15:22-28 "A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is suffering terribly from demon possession."... He replied, "it is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs." "Yes Lord," she said. "But even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table." Then Jesus answered the woman "you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healedfrom that very hour."
She had seen Him pouring out His love on others, so she knew she could count on his mercy. That gave her the faith for her daughter to be healed. When we put our trust in the love of Jesus, His love will activate our faith in Him. When we appeal to the mercy of God, we get the mercy of God.
