1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
Hebrews 4 : 1&2
New King James Version
Today we are looking at the application of faith with the WORD of God we have heard. The scripture above describes two sets of people.
Firstly, we have the set of people that heard the word of God but did not mix it with faith, the word did not profit them! Which means the word of God could not become effective in their life. Unbelief in people rendered the word of God of non-effect.
Unbelief rendered the word ineffective and inefficient in our lives. The word will never thrive in an environment of unbelief. Remember, Jesus could not do mighty works because of unbelief (Matthew 13:58) ! Friends, your unbelief does not diminish God’s power to bring his word to pass in your life. It just pours acid on the seed of the word in respect to you. The word can not confer profit or benefit on your life in an atmosphere of unbelief.
The second sets of people are the people that mixed the word received with faith. The word produce result in their lives. For the word to be effective and efficient in your live and my life, we have to consistently mix it with faith.
Benefits, profits and great gains are all accessible through faith in the word of God. The word works wonder when mixed with Faith.
