Many years ago, I heard a man of God teach that BELIEVING and FAITH are two sides of the same coin.
Unless the coin has the right image on both sides, it is a counterfeit and will not spin. In other words, it will not do what it is intended to do. This illustration was so impactful that I never forgot it.
You see, our “spirit” feeds on the WORD OF GOD and must be kept strong to secure our destiny. Our SOUL, however, needs God’s Word to be transformed so we can BELIEVE.
Unless both are present and AGREE, we will not receive the flow of God’s Power to provoke a performance of those things which God Has Promised.
(See Luke 1:45 -…blessed is she/he that believed: for there shall be a performance…from the Lord.)
