One of the major reasons people aren’t receiving more from the Lord is because they think ‘faith’ is God responding to something they do… The Bible calls such ‘faith’ works and legalism. You’re doing something to try to make God do something for you. That’s flesh! You can take the Word, confess it, pray, get up, act healed, and throw your medicine away, but your actions will never make God heal you. In fact, works and legalism stop what God has already provided from coming into physical manifestation. Why? God will not be coerced into anything. Everything from God must come by grace through faith.
