Developing Your Faith in the Blood
Hebrews 4 says that God gave a powerful promise to Israel after He delivered them out of Egypt. While in Egypt, if they applied the blood as they were supposed to, they were protected. But when they got into the wilderness they stopped believing God and stopped using their faith. They stopped trusting His word and stopped relying upon what He had said. Because they did not mix their faith with the Word of God, they did not enter the Promised Land. They died in the wilderness. Only two persons entered the Promised Land.
The rest of them didn’t enter the Promised Land because they didn’t believe God. You need to use your faith. Mix your faith with the promises of God to protect you through the blood of Jesus and you will enjoy that covenant blessing. There are steps you can take to develop your faith in the blood of Jesus. First, if you want to develop your faith in the blood for your protection, you need to spend time with Jesus. He is the Author and the Finisher of your faith. Jesus gives faith. Jesus increases faith. Jesus builds faith as you spend time with Him. Do ask Jesus to increase your faith and then spend time with Jesus. Commune and fellowship with Jesus. It will cause Jesus to be able to strengthen and build your faith.
Next, take Jesus’ Word concerning His blood and meditate upon it. Memorize scriptures concerning the blood. Listen to sermons concerning His blood. Spend time meditating on the blood of Jesus and its power to protect you until it gets from your head into your heart. That’s when it really begins to do its work. Too often you hear the Word of God and it goes in one ear and out the other. It is the Word that you have meditated upon and gotten into you heart that will work miracles in your life. Proverbs 4:20 says “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” God’s Word has to get into your heart.
Next, you need to learn to confess; practice bold confessions. Confidently confess the power that is in the blood and what the blood can do for you. Take the Word and begin to confess what it says concerning you. If you do that, your faith in the blood of Jesus will develop. When it develops, when the enemy shows up, because you have taken time to put the word of God on the inside of you, what is going to come out of you is faith in the blood. That will become a shield of protection for you. Often times, the first words you speak when you are in danger will determine the outcome of what happens. Finally, praise God daily, for what the blood has accomplished in your life.
