Series 2 - Lesson 8 - Annotation 8
Explain: "According to your faith be it done unto you." — Matthew 9:29.
8. "According to your faith be it; done unto you" — Matt. 9:29 — is the great law of the universe. The Hebrews were told that they might have "Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it." — Josh. 1:3. All that man can have faith in is his. Man is a free will agent, cannot be forced by Spirit against his will, cannot be given anything except he lays hold of it through faith. All that the Father has is man's, and still he starves because he does not believe that it belongs to him, does not lay hold of his divine inheritance through faith.
