TEEVO FOR 23RD MAY 2022 (PURCHASE IT BY FAITH)
TOPIC: PURCHASE IT BY FAITH (Faith Is The Currency You Have In Christ) “
Scripture: Hebrews 11:1 AMPC
“Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
Faith is the response of the human spirit to the Word of God. One of the things it does is that it brings to your spirit the picture of possibilities. The scripture above defines faith as the evidence of unseen realities: the proof of the existence of those things which are unseen to the optical eyes but can be seen in the spirit. Let’s say you asked the Lord for a new jacket and declared afterwards, “I have that new jacket in the Name of Jesus.” If what you’re exercising is really faith, it means the jacket is already yours. In your spirit you’ve possessed it, though you’re yet to pay anything of monetary value for it.
The Bible says faith calls those things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17). Thus, in the arena of faith, your confessions aren’t based on the things you can see or perceive by your natural senses, but on the things of the Spirit which are invisible to the natural eyes. By this principle therefore, you’ve purchased the jacket by faith and can actually wear it as it were, even before it manifests physically.
Jesus Himself amplified this principle when He said in Mark 11:24: “…Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” This means that the ability to get whatever you desire isn’t primarily dependent on your wallet or physical ability but on your faith. With faith in your heart, the condition of your spirit will not be affected by the circumstances around you. Remember, champions in life are those who through faith obtain a good report from God because faith is the basis for pleasing Him.
Mark 11:24; Hebrews 11:1
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. My life is a testimony of increase, grace, faith and favour. The Word is productive in me and causes me to do exceeding mighty works in the matchless name of Jesus. Amen.
