Yesterday we looked at Faith as a medium of exchange – a payment system. Let us see why the exchange does not always work.

Exchanges may fail for only two reasons  
1. The money is not sufficient in value to purchase that which is desired.
2. The money offered is observed to be fake or illegal.

Please note that even though the trader may not accept a badly mutilated or defaced currency, the issuing authority NEVER disowns the note provided it is proven to be genuine. They are bound to replace the mutilated/defaced note provided the embedded security features certify it as original.

So how much Faith do you need to exchange for a miracle? How much faith do you need for that which you hope for? The Bible answers this question point blank.

19Afterward the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” 20“Because you have so little faith,” He answered. “For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matt 17:19-20 (BSB).

“If you have faith as little as a mustard seed,” you can ask for anything and receive it. 

One of the challenges we have in our walk of faith is the erroneous belief that a Christian can be faithless. This is practically impossible. You become  born again by faith. Therefore the concept of a faithless Christian cannot be true.

However, you can have _insufficient faith for what you want._ The cure to this is to feed more on the word of God concerning your desire. "For Faith comes by hearing the word of God. (Rom 10:17)"

Are you seeking to start a business? Look for scriptures on business and study them, memorize them, sing them and speak them out.  Are you looking to get married? Look for biblical passages on marriage and feed on them. Do you desire good health? Take the  word of God on healing and take it regularly the same way you will take medicine three times daily.

By listening to the Word of God, you build your faith. You are making deposits into your faith account. This is why Jesus, the apostles and all preachers start by declaring a word of God before they begin to pray for the manifestation of the power of God. They are raising the faith content of the people and of themselves.
