Faith is not imitation; it cannot be imitated. It must arise in each person’s heart based on the Word of God. Faith is not imitating someone else’s actions. You cannot expect answer to prayer based on the testimony of others, what other people said or did. God will not meet you because you imitate what someone else did.
God will meet you when you obey what He told you by His Spirit based on His Word. If you take action in obedience to God, you will prosper. Remember Ephesians 3:17 – “…that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…” It is not only committing the Word to memory which is valuable but it is letting that Word become an integral part of your being. When it becomes an integral part of our being, faith forms.
