It takes faith to partake in the promise correlating to the faith that is in Christ.  The entire Hebrews 11 affirms that all who overcame by the power of God or lived to obtain the promise of God had one thing in common,

FAITH

Toward the end of that same chapter, the writer concludes by writing:

“And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. ”  Hebrews 11:32-34 KJV

The Spirit of Faith

As we make it our aim to believe we must be certain and examine whether we too have “the spirit of faith” described in 2 Cor. 4:13 both to do the will and purpose of God. 

According to Jesus,

it’s not so much about what one say or confess but whether ones heart is convinced of what they say. For faith given to men as a gift of God is poured into their hearts, as it’s written: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:10 KJV

Importance of the Spirit of Faith

For this very purpose, we are called to: 

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23 KJV

We must, therefore,

pray to God to grant us and increase us in the “spirit of faith” that we may not err in our faith and practice vain repetitions which profit nothing nor able to deliver us.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. –Matthew 6:7 KJV

In the verse above, we understand that by multiplying our words it profits nothing, neither are we delivered by it.
