what He said. The gift of Faith has nothing to do with Christian doctrine.
But in the course of the Christian life, circumstances may arise which necessitate the revelation of God's will. Was it not a gift of Faith which enabled Peter to sleep soundly in prison the night before his intended execution? Had not the Lord told him that he would die an old man, and enabled him to believe it in spite of such threatening circumstances? This God-given ability to believe for the humanly speaking impossible runs right through the Bible from Noah's Flood and Elijah's fire from Heaven to Our Lord's coin in the fish's mouth and Peter's sheet from Heaven, which alone enabled him to preach the Gospel to the uncircumcised centurion (Acts 10:28-29). So in modern days Holy Ann took her bucket to the dry well, while those around were mocking her, and pulled it up full of water; and Hudson Taylor took some hundreds of missionaries to China, which had only just been locked against all foreigners by the Dowager Empress, in full faith, against all the reasonings of his friends, that when he would arrive there it would be re-opened—as indeed it was! God is able to speak to the Spirit-filled Christian and enable him to believe what He has said and act upon it.
The fruit of faith is then the ability through the new Birth to believe what is in the Bible. The Gift of Faith is the ability to believe what the Spirit has said to one in whose body He is resident.
The word translated "miracles" literally means acts of Power: and it seems to speak of Power
