(NKJV): “Hebrews 11: 1 – Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
(CEV): “Hebrews 11: 1 – Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see”.
“FAITH IS…the spiritual Creative force of God that’s inside your born-again spirit!” — Kenneth Copeland. Faith Starts on the inside. Your spirit man is on the inside and Faith is Generated in the born-again spirit, not the mind or body.
The Bible Says Faith Gives substance to the things you hope for. In other words, Faith Brings those things into your life. Notice this verse starts by saying, “Now faith…” It’s not “later” Faith or “someone day” Faith. It’s Faith for today, right now. Faith is for now: if it is not now, then it is not Faith
Bible Hope = is happy anticipation (or expectation) that something good is going to happen in your life. Hope is for the future, but Faith is for now. However, Hope without Faith is just pure wishful thinking.
Faith is of your heart but not in your mind, it is part of your born-again spirit. We should feed our born-again spirit…what does the spirit eat? The Word of God. ie; It is important that you make a decision to develop your Faith in your born-again spirit, how? Whatever The Word of God Says, then you decide to believe it
There’s not even a little tiny bit of Faith in your head. The Word of God Says, then you decide to believe it. You need to have a daily plan of studying The Word of God in order to develop your born-again spirit man (the real you). Religion is not a spiritual food, but THE WORD is a spiritual food for your born-again spirit
“Have Faith in God”: You Got born again By Grace through Faith (see Eph 2:8). It Was God’s Faith. Mk 11: 22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, HAVE FAITH IN GOD. (or HAVE FAITH OF GOD). Faith Came from God. God’s Faith is on the inside of you now. You have The Same Kind of Faith Jesus Has. It’s The Faith of God.
Faith is a “whosoever” thing. It Works Exactly the Same Way Jesus Used it. Put Faith in your mouth first, and then in your heart. “Whosoever shall say…” (Mark 11:23). Don’t have any doubt in your heart. You stay with what you say, and you will have what you say.
The Bible is clear: You have enough Faith to do whatever God Has Called you to do. Stand up, step out and step into everything God Has Called you to do… Every born-again believer can hear the voice of The LORD in his/her born-again spirit — if he/she listens.
No matter how long you have been living by Faith or you’ve learned about Faith, every once in a while) you may suffer a setback. You may run into some circumstances that just don’t turn out the way you expected. If that happens, remember this: ‘Those setbacks are just temporary. You may have lost a battle, but you’re not going to lose the war. Just get up and go at it again’.
Your words are connected to what you believe so learn to speak words of Faith that get results, so if you are going to live by Faith then you cannot only live by what you believe but also by what say; you cannot be believing one thing & be saying totally different to negate what you believe. Let The Word of God be your Standard, ie; Whatever The Word Says you are going to believe. Reasoning always takes you from Faith & there’s One & Only One Source of Faith, The Word of God. Everything in our life good depends on us using our Faith, so we must have Faith if we want to live in victory because ‘our Faith is the victory that overcomes the world’ (1 Jn 5: 4).
Faith & Patience work together to produce result– there is the beginning of Faith, & waiting time, before the answer manifests. The Bible Says that through Faith and patience, you will inherit His Promises! Faith always Bring results if you wait patiently & you do not waiver, compromise, or give up. God is never too late or too fast so we need to wait for Him to Execute His Plan/s for you; your patience is needed.
When you use your Faith, it may be a while before you see the results come to the outside hence the need for Patience. Patience is not passive but it’s active. It will help you to get what God Promised through Faith. ‘Patience’ is not only waiting (or putting up with), but it’s the GOOD attitude that we wait with. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FEEL PATIENCE FOR YOU TO BE PATIENT. ‘Pray and Say’; then wait expectantly & hopefully (with Patience) for the things you need; make good confessions whilst you wait – wait with patient (ie: wait with a good attitude)
