For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.   1 John 5:4-5

We all know that faith can bring us to a place where God want us to be, a place of victory that overcomes and defeats the world. And this faith is seeded by those who believe that Jesus is the Son of the living God and by His work, we are eternally set right with God, the Father.

Faith brings God’s work into our lives; the transformations and miracles. But to walk in faith is exactly a walk in the park. This is because we have a natural obstacle to overcome: that is our natual human thinking or reasoning. What stands between us and our breakthroughs is our natural thinking    But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 1 Cor 2:14  

The natural man cannot receive from God because they cannot conceive the works of God or miracles in them. It seems crazy, illogical and plain foolishness; they simply cannot understand because they don’t know God personally.

This is a great lesson for me because I tend to over-rationalise the problem or situation. “How can it be possible?”, “No way!”, “It will take a miracle for it to work, will it come?”, “Will God heal?”, “He is my God, but is He the God of my problems?”, “Will He deliver me?”. As such, my inner faith and spirit cannot rise up. But that’s going to change.

Very often our victories are limited to what our minds can accept, not what God has promised; in His Word. We have tied God’s hand with our almost non-existence faith; if a mustard seed sized faith can move mountains, we have much room for improvement.

Miracle only happen by believing, conceiving and seeing it; that is by faith! It is not what we can think of; it is what God has promised in the Bible. God’s power is in His Word.  When the Bible says I am healed; I am healed! When The Bible says I am blessed; I am blessed! When the Bible says I have the favour of God; I have the favour of God! When the Bible say I do not need to fear; I don’t have to be afraid! The Bible says whatever I declare in the name of Jesus shall be done; It shall be done!

Hallelujah!

Faith Is...

Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.   Hebrews 11:1-3

Faith is some thing we cannot comprehen with our natural senses. It is contrary to the entire enviroment we are in. Our minds will want to protest, but God wants to renew our mind and transforms us by changing how we think (Rom 12:2), and to give us faith by hearing the Good News about Jesus our Lord (Rom 10:17). God want us to renew our mind to the Words of God, to live by faith, not by sight (2 Cor 5:7).

Faith Is... On Eagles Wings

We don’t need to walk on a tight rope 20 storey up to show our faith. When we read, hear, mediate, speak and declare God’s Word from the Bible, we are walking in faith. It may seem scary at first trusting on God’s Words rather than our own mind or senses. But when we continue to stand on His Word unwaveringly, the Holy Spirit will come and lift you up, then our spirit and faith will rise up; and you will literally soar high on wings like eagles

Enjoy the flight!
