James 1:4 AMP
 But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be people perfectly and fully developed with no defects, lacking in nothing.
"But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work..." As I read this scripture I read it as "but let Faith have full play and do a thorough work... "
Faith is not an emotion or the ability to mentally agree. Faith is the foundation upon which God works.
Many of us ask God for increase in various areas of our lives. However, we have stifled the possibilities for increase by our very own beliefs. Or shall I say, the way we "think". What we must understand is this: belief is not faith and faith is more than believing. Belief is mentally agreeing with and idea, a theory or a concept. That's it. It requires nothing more than to mentally agrees. Faith moves beyond that. Faith is stimulated by hope and is the catalyst for miracles.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is having convictions so deep within us that we instinctively act upon them, reguardless of what it looks like or what others may say. Faith is conviction that will yield the endurance needed to manifest the supernatural. Faith causes us to be consistent. The kind of constancy that envokes steadfastness. It causes our actions to line up completely and in total agreement with our conviction. It also causes us to exercise commitment. Commitment that builds up our spiritual tenacity; endurance. This building up in turns, produces patience.
There are times when our lives are shaken and drastically alter for a moment. It is then we have the power and authority as believers to walk in faith. Walking in faith is applying the Word of God to our situation without doubt. Walking in faith nullifies the weapons launched against us, causing a rippled effect in our lives and those around us. As they that witness our faith in action the manifestation of the supernatural increases and causing an increase our faith even more. A walk in faith will always depict a picture of increase. Faith is ever increasing, within us and in the lives around us.
Reflect for a moment have what you taken a stance to belive and transition to a realm of faith? Has it caused your convictions to demonstrate consistancy and commitment? Are you experiencing increase? Our thoughts will not get the supernatural mainfested in our lives unless it lines up with the Word of God and fueled by faith.
