He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16-18
And, without faith in the King, there is no way possible to please the King. 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. Hebrews 11:6
To say you love King Jesus is to love the Word. You cannot love one and not the other. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. . . And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ ” John 1:1-3,14-15
Do you recall the woman with a flow of blood and how she pressed her way through the crowd just to touch the King? It was through her faith in Him that she was ever delivered from her condition. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”
When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”
But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.”
Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” Luke 8:43-48 By the way, I can personally relate to that woman. Everyone that was delivered or healed had faith in the King’s promises. He will always see you through. I can say that I am a living example of that statement. King David’s statement in God’s constitution confirms it. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. Psalm 18:30
To build and strengthen your faith in the King, stay in His Word. His Word will see you through every situation. Stop trying to figure things out and simply trust Him, His Way and His Word. Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. Psalm 37:1-6
Your faith and trust in Him is your key to all your victories and blessings as a citizen of the Kingdom. It is imperative that we as Kingdom citizens keep reading and studying His constitution for it is the life strength of our faith in Him. The more you read, the stronger your desire for God's Word will become.
Before the Lord Jesus was sent to this earth His Father gave His ambassador Hosea this message to deliver to Israel, His people. Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel, for the Lord brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land:
“There is no truth or mercy or knowledge of God in the land. By swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, they break all restraint, with bloodshed upon bloodshed.
Therefore the land will mourn; and everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air; even the fish of the sea will be taken away. . .
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, also will forget your children. Hosea 4:1-3, 6.
Keep in mind that the Word of the Lord God is the foundation of every person’s faith in the King. It is His Word that causes your faith in Him to grow. If you study His constitution and live by it, you are the one who pleases the King. King Jesus made this statement concerning those who love Him and His Father. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:21
Learning the Word is vital. Read what the Lord Jesus told Martha when she was concerned her sister, Mary wasn’t helping her. Now while they were on their way, Jesus entered a village [called Bethany], and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching. But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.”
But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 38-42 AMP Mary was listening and learning while sitting at His feet. Many religious leaders have said that she was worshipping at His feet. But the Lord God’s constitution states that “Mary sat at Jesus feet and heard His Word”. (NKJV) Mary was listening and learning from the King. She was loving the Word.
Psalm 119 is a tribute to God’s Word! Clearly, David loved God’s Word. Here is a passage:
Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.
You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Your precepts.
I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I may keep Your Word. I have not departed from Your judgments, for You Yourself have taught me.
How sweet are Your Words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I have sworn and confirmed that I will keep Your righteous judgments. Psalm 119:97-106
Remember, your greatest asset is your faith in His Word.
