Faith is the most important substance in your life. Knowing how to use it is the difference between results and complete defeat.
In fact, faith is so important, the word says that it is impossible to please God without faith!
Faith is a substance. It is actually the spiritual currency of the Kingdom of God. You can’t buy spiritual things (blessings and power) with money, though some have tried! Faith is how to obtain the things of God.
Faith is not hoping. Hoping is wishing for what you want with no assurance or belief that it will really happen. Much like a child hoping to get a certain gift for Christmas, yet never knows if it will appear or not. She hopes, wishes and dreams but never truly believes it will appear, for certain.
Hebrews 11:1 says “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.”
However, hope fed by the word can turn into faith. Faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see: in the natural realm…yet.
When you became born again, you believed that Jesus died and rose again for your sins. You believed when someone showed it to you in the Bible and you exercised your faith to believe and receive it. Now, you now have God’s faith deposited in you. Mark 11:22 says “Have faith in God,” in many versions. The actual Greek says “have the faith of God.”
We receive all that we desire in the same way. When you pray, your faith needs to grab hold of what God says about it and keep the faith! Find verses that promise what you are praying for and then you will be praying in the will of God.
If faith can move mountains, nothing in your life can stand against what Jesus has provided for you; not even the gates of hell!
