"Then the people went out and plundered the tents of the Syrians. So a seah of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the Lord." 1 Kings 7: 16 (NKJV)
Bible Readings: 2 Kings 7: 1-20, Matthew 13, James 1: 8, Luke 24, Psalms 107: 2, Luke 5: 18.
Faith is laying hold of unrealities of hope and bring them into the realm of reality by the word of God.
Faith is not hope. Hope is the vehicle that faith drives on. Faith is now! If it not now, it is not faith. We do not receive by hoping but by faith. If it doesn’t work, it is not God’s fault but your fault. The word can only work when you are ready for it. If your heart is not ready, nothing an happen. Sometimes the reason why you have not seen some things is because your confession and action is different. Your faith must match your action. Faith changes things, faith doesn’t change God. When God speaks, he is looking for who will agree. What kind of faith do you have?
Faith never looks back. It says now, it is mine. Be moved by what you believe not what you see or hear. Faith without work is dead. Unbelief is going against what the lord says. Satan always challenges real faith. Satan will always challenge whatever is real. Do what God says you should do not what your mind says you should do. Satan will challenge whatever is of God. Satan will test that faith. Don’t always wait for something to happen, make it happen. Enough of waiting for miracle to happen, be a miracle worker. Start acting the word!
Faith is not a promise, it is a statement of fact. Real faith says about you what the word of God says about you. Faith is a mystery that makes you a master over a situation. Faith puts you in command and makes you a commander. Faith is speaking the word of God over every area of your life.
