Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
There is one understanding that we have but we do not believe the fact that God is spirit. God is Spirit and function as a Spirit. God function best in the spirit than in the physical. There are two realms; the physical and the spiritual. It is only faith which pleases God what you are looking for today is in the spiritual realm. The healing you require is packed already in the spiritual realm. Faith is the ability of taking down what is already in the spiritual realm.
God is giving us an insurance we are already healed before we have even fallen sick. The problem with us is we use human faith in which we see first in order for us to act. For instance when a robot turns green then you have faith to move or cross the road. God’s faith is when you act before you see even the smallest sign.
If there is no hope in you then faith cannot be activated. You need to have hope to receive. If you are not hoping for anything then you cannot receive from God. Our hope can be destroyed by the news and economic status but faith is not controlled by all that. If you do not imagine it then you cannot have it.
“5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.”
God changed Abram’s name to Abraham way before he had Isaac to give him hope. If you start imagining pain you will receive more pain and when you imagine joy you will get more of the joy. Whenever they called him by name it gave him hope that he would bear a child. Your environment can limit you from getting what you expect of God because as a man thinketh so is he. If changing a name from Abram to Abraham brought about Isaac then if you change your thoughts it will strengthen your faith and your desires will materialize. Seeing is less than believing without seeing. Our biggest problem as Christians is we all want to see before we can believe. You do not need to see that Jesus Christ is alive to receive.
“5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”
7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.”
Have faith like the above mentioned centurion. The man in the scripture believes that a simple word would change the situation. Demons tend to listen more than people as they flee at the command of God. Receiving is an issue of the heart not what we see. You might want to get married and the moment you start focusing on how much you have then that is human faith but God’s faith makes you shop around and get dates without a single cent on you. If one is told they are HIV positive they get sick the moment they are told the news. What we imagine, think or meditate on contribute towards what we receive. What we need to have is our thoughts because if we do not do so then we are destined for failure. You need to change your thoughts in order for you to receive your miracle. What you wish for should become part of you daily. Most people’s hearts are dominated by failure more than success hence that is all they receive. Some churches restrict people from watching TV because of the news people hear from there. It is dangerous to confess negative words over anyone because they will become exactly what they do not want to become. Never call your child a prostitute because what you call them is what they will become. Do not focus on your current state of affairs instead focus on what you want to attain. You can only become more spiritual if you can make your body suffer. We over concentrate on battering the physical person and neglect the spiritual aspect. If one day we could take care of our spirits as much as we take care of our body we would become spiritual giants. You need to discipline your body in order to be more spiritual.
“3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”
Before you were even born God loved you. You are not a mistake in your confusion and failure to identify yourself. There is one thing that must be registered in your mind which is that God loved you before you were even born.
We give all glory to God. Mbiri kunaJesu.
