“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. Heb 11:1-6
Faith is the catalyst that turns your desert place of life to the Garden of Eden; a force that turns your mountains into plain land and believer that the dictionary word impossible is not meant for a child of God.
A man of Faith is not intimidated by his enemies profile; the job card from a witch does not threaten him because he knows the battle with powers-that-be is programmed to obey the command and power of God.
When you have the little of this Faith, it can command the appearance of God to fight your battle without sweating and grant you abundance without measures. “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”. Matthew 17:20
A man with Faith has the seed of invincibility and the eye of possibility; it allows him to see what others look at, sees what they cannot see and remains an undefeated heavyweight in the kingdom of God. But watch out anything that has the ability to come also has the ability to God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” Romans 10:17. “And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him” Luke 8:25
A man of faith does not accept what life brings to him; he does not give up until heaven connects him to his divine placement. “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable” Heb 11:8-12
The Acts of the Apostles is the acts of Faith that is capable of bringing miracle extravaganza. Therefore, if your desire is to hit the headlines as an achiever, you must be ready to be a Faith front-liner. Great Faith is the product of great fight and faith does not deny fact, it changes it. Don’t go through life like you were dead yesterday and there was nobody to bury you today. Your life should not be seated on the misery of yesterday.
Have you said this prayer that is the beginning of getting into the Paradise of Faith.
Dear Jesus, I come before you today with a sincere desire to know you. I therefore invite you into my heart to come and fill my life with your love and presence. I believe that you are the son of God and that you died on the cross to save me. I give you my heart and my love unconditionally. I ask you to be the Lord of my Life. Amen
