(Take A Hold Of God’s Word By Faith)
TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 11:1 AMPC
“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
I once heard someone lamenting how he couldn’t see the manifestation of the special word God gave him concerning his healing, prosperity, and restoration.
As I listened to him grieve over his pathetic condition, all I perceived in his communication was unbelief. Unbelief is a thief of God’s blessing; it short-circuits the power of God, thereby preventing you from experiencing the best God has for you.
Unbelief hindered the Israelites from taking possession of the land of Canaan even when God had promised to deliver the whole country into their hands. They couldn’t enter into God’s promise because they wouldn’t be persuaded by His Word.
“And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief” (Hebrews 3:18-19).
Faith is a possessor. It takes a hold of the Word of God, and that settles it. What miracle is it you desire from God in your spiritual life, academics, for your family, or a loved one?
Don’t wait for any physical manifestation before you believe it’s yours. Just take it! Your faith is the manifestation. Talk and act like you’ve already gotten what you requested.
Proverbs 4:7; Proverbs 25:2; Ephesians 1:17
In line with God’s Word, I declare that all things are mine. I refuse to struggle for anything. I function by the Word, and my realities are in conformity with God’s proclamations, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
