Abraham had the assurance. Until you have the assurance within you, you can’t have those things. Until you have the evidence of whatever you are asking for like a clear picture, your faith can’t operate because faith is not those things themselves but their evidence. It takes a win of the struggle with your not-yet-renewed mind to come to the place of full persuasion where you know that the thing is yours. At this point, you are no more struggling because you have it.
Faith in God will give you the victory. By faith through the agency of the Holy Spirit you can win in the spirit realm always. And when you have won there (in the spirit realm), you display the victory here (in the physical realm) for people to see. Many people try to be winners in life without first becoming winners in the spirit realm by faith through the Holy Ghost and God’s Word. You must win there (in the spirit realm) first of all before you win here (in the physical realm).
Faith is like the sense mechanism for your spirit. What the five senses do for you on the physical part is what faith does for you on the spiritual part. If you see a man in the physical realm without any of the five senses, he is disadvantaged and he can’t function effectively in the physical realm. Likewise, a Christian without faith will be at a disadvantage in the spirit realm; he can’t function there.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive wisdom to use the advantage of Faith for effective operations in life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
