The Faith-connection

“For
assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast
into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things
he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23

The
blessings God gives us through His Word and His Spirit are spiritual, and can’t
be discerned with our physical senses. We live in a physical world and
therefore need to translate these spiritual blessings to material substances we
can enjoy here on earth. In Hebrews 11:1, the Bible says “Now faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” In other
words, faith gives evidence to, or makes concrete or tangible what the physical
senses can’t perceive. God is a Spirit (John 4:24), and He operates from the
spirit realm. To Him, things in that realm are more real than the things we
perceive with our senses.

In Mark
11:22, we’re told to have the God-kind of faith; the supernatural faith that
God applies. We see Him apply this faith principle in Genesis 1. The earth God
created had been destroyed and was enveloped in gross darkness. Dissatisfied
with the state of things, God spoke forth what He believed, and changed the
hitherto chaotic mass into the beautiful world He desired. He applied faith to
bring forth into the physical that which He had conceived in the spirit realm.

Applying the
same faith-principle, you can frame or recreate your world; you can bring forth
the good things you want to see in your life. The power to make this happen is
the Word of God in your mouth. God has bequeathed to you all things requisite
and suited for godliness and the glory-life (2 Peter 1:3). But you have to
speak forth those things: divine health, absolute prosperity, unending success,
abundant joy and indescribable peace. These are your divine inalienable rights
as a child of God. But to enjoy them to the full requires the faith-connection;
you have to make them the focus of your meditation and confession.
