And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
In simple words, God honors faith. The question that God asks them who seek him earnestly for their difficulties/problems is, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?"
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" "Yes, Lord," they replied.
Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith will it be done to you"; and their sight was restored.....(Matthew 9:27-30)
Jesus always had a word of praise for them who showed their faith to him with their words and actions. About the Roman centurion, he said,
"I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. (Matthew 8:10)
To the woman who had been suffering from bleeding for 12 years, he said,
"Take heart, daughter," he said, "your faith has healed you." And the woman was healed from that moment. (Matthew 9:22)
To the Canaanite woman who pleaded with Jesus for her daughter, Jesus said,
"Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted." And her daughter was healed from that very hour. (Matthew 15:28)
Do you believe that Jesus is able to do the miracle that you are seeking from him this day? If yes, then start praising him as if he has done it already, because he himself said,
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (Mark 11:24)
And when your miracle happens, Jesus will have a word of praise for you too, because you showed him your faith.
