The Force of Faith
Memory verse: Mark 11: 23-24 “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”
It is important to understand the subject matter of faith. Without understanding it especially the principles of faith and how to get faith to work there is a great possibility that he will live a frustrated life. Jesus taught that if you have the faith of God, you shall say unto the mountain and if you do not doubt in your heart that which you say with your mouth, then that which said with your mouth has already happened.
This is a powerful statement and also challenging at the same time because it postulates that once words filled with heartfelt faith leaves your mouth, it becomes a reality in the realm of the unseen even though it is not within our sensory perception.
Hence, to truly function this way, a believer must then have to be truly spiritually conscious. He has to be more conscious of the spiritual realm than the earthly realm. Paul declares in 2 Corinthians 5:7 ” for we walk by faith and not by sight (sensory perception). This is because the spiritual controls the physical. Nothing occurs in the physical without it first occurring in the spiritual. The physical merely animates that which has already occurred in the spiritual. So when a believer speaks a word in faith or prays in faith, whatsoever he has declared is already a tangible reality in the realm of the spirit even though it is intangible in the realm of the physical.
So, whatever you ask the Father through faith, realize you have them when you ask of them. As many times as you ask in faith, you have them. Praise God!
Confession: I have the faith of God, my words are potent, whatsoever I declare in faith I possess. I am a believer, I am a receiver. I have received all that pertains to life and godliness even now.
