For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Hebrews 4:2 (KJV)
In order for the Word to truly profit us, we must mix it with faith. Mixing the Word with faith means we accept it as true no matter what, we receive God’s promises into our hearts in simple yet consistent faith. When we place the Word over circumstances and conditions, soon those circumstances and conditions will have to yield to the authority of the Word.
