Title: Exceedingly Growing Faith
Author: Kenneth E. Hagin
Publisher: RHEMA Bible Church
Faith is something that every believer knows about and wants. In this short, easy to read book, Kenneth talks about what faith really is.
He points out that often people feel as if they really do not have any faith and need to get some. It states in the Bible that every person is given a measure of faith by God. It is not something that a person needs to seek to find, but has to exercise what he has.
Kenneth uses a variety of examples from the Bible to show how people had faith to receive healing. Many scriptures are quoted throughout the book, instead of just being paraphrased.
Faith in the Bible was not just something believed in the heart. It was something that was spoken out loud and acted upon.
Jesus did not just pray quietly for a person to be healed, He spoke healing into the life of the person. It was the same way when God spoke the earth into existence. Words have a powerful impact in the life of a person, both positively and negatively. This is where faith comes in. Speaking God’s words into your life, as fact, brings about His power.
My favorite quote of this book is: “The God-kind of faith is the kind of faith in which a man: (1) believes in his heart, and (2) says with his mouth what he believes in his heart, and (3) it comes to pass.” (page 96)
I recommend this short book to read. It will help you see what faith really is and how to apply it in your life. I enjoyed the amount of scripture used. There are very few pages that does not have at least one verse quoted. It is short enough to read in just a few days, if you take your time and are a slower reader.
