The Measure of Faith
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
(Rom. 12:3)
Notice Paul calls it “the measure of faith” not “a measure” but “the measure”. All of the faith of Jesus is in you if you are born again, because Jesus is in you.
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
(1 John 4:17)
Jesus is doing very well in faith right now and we should be too because His faith is still in you. It is the faith we are to live by. Anything you receive from God is received the same way you received salvation. You believe it in your heart and say it with your mouth (Romans 10:9). This is how the God kind of faith works and it really is very simple. God made it that way. It should be very easy to live by faith because that is who we are.

We are called believers, because that is our nature. The real you, the spirit man on the inside, is a believer. You already believe the Word if you are born again.
We have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written I believed therefore have I spoken, we also believe and therefore speak.
(2 Cor. 4:13)
Your born again man, the real you, always believes God and is full of faith. There is no doubt, no fear, no wavering in your born again spirit. If you lived out of your spirit all the time, you would live by the faith of Jesus Christ. You are a faith being because your Father is a faith being.

Peter made the same reference to this:
Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
(2 Peter 1:1)
It was by the righteousness of God, a free gift of grace, because of what Jesus did, that you received the faith of Jesus Christ.

Stop Trying To Get What You Already Have
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
(Rom. 10:17)
Many have spent too much time and effort struggling to “get” more faith this way. The entire chapter of Romans 10 is clearly referring to the born again experience and is the only time in all of scripture that references faith coming this way. The problem is that you never get there. Instead of living by the faith of God already inside you and enjoying it, you spend all your time frustrated trying to get what you already have. And every time you step out to do something God has told you to do, the devil will be right there to tell you that you need more faith. You can spend your life trying to get more faith, when you a have all the faith that there is.
And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.
(John 1:16)
If Jesus is in you, His faith is in you. It is much easier to release something you already have than to try to get something you believe you don’t have. We have received the God kind of faith by receiving Jesus. All we have to do is learn how to release it, which is really a simple process.

The key to releasing faith and living by faith is to get your soul to line up with your born again spirit. While your spirit cannot doubt, you can allow doubt, unbelief and fear in your soul which will stop faith from flowing out of you. That is why we are instructed to:
Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
(2 Cor. 10:5)
We must meditate the Word of God day and night, seeing ourselves with the faith of God, living by that faith and using it the same way God does and Jesus did when He was here on earth. If we will do that, we will see ourselves as faith men and women. We will speak faith words out of our spirit and change the circumstances around us. We will operate just like our Father when He created the worlds and just like Jesus did when He was on earth. We will release spirit words that will control our bodies, our finances, demons, sickness, depression and all the other forces that have controlled us in days past.

We are faith men and women. Let’s live like it, walk like it, think like it and speak like it. We are supernatural beings recreated in Christ to walk in the realm of the supernatural all the time. We do that by faith, the faith of Jesus Christ, imparted to our spirit when we are born again and released by the words of our mouth.
