And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God (Mark 11:22)
When Jesus said in Mark 11:22 “Have faith in God,” the literal connotation of the expression is: “Have the faith of God.” or “Have the God-kind of faith; the supernatural faith that God applies. This implies that you can apply the same principles as God did throughout the scriptures and be guaranteed the same results.
For example, when God told Abraham, “I have made thee a father of many nations” (Romans 4:17), he was about a hundred years old at the time, and Sarah his wife, who was already ninety years old, apart from being barren had also reached menopause. Hence it wasn’t naturally possible for them to bear children. Yet, God told Abraham, “a father of many nations have I made thee” (Genesis 17:5), and called Sarah “mother of nations” (Genesis 17:16).
This was the faith of God in operation; it calls things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17). And true to God’s Word, the Bible says “…Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him” (Genesis 21:2).
You’ve been called to operate the God-kind of faith. You too can call things that be not as though they were! Through your faith-proclamations you can call forth your desires and bring into existence your favourable expectations, based on the Word of God. Remember, as He is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17); we can function like God; we can emulate His faith and have His kind of results
