The Nature of Faith
Faith is the lifeline that connects man to divine resources. Faith is a force that attracts God’s gift into human life. What flows from deity to humanity is channeled through faith. Faith is a force of God in an unseen realm that precedes seen results. Faith makes tangible a happy anticipation of good hope. (Heb 11:1), divine approval is only obtained through faith actions.
Faith is a principle initiated by God. God is a faith God. Heaven and earth are faith results. The whole creation is a product of faith actions. Faith filled WORDS were the raw materials the creator employed to get the creations. Faith is a product of words and it is expressed in words. Faith is a dynamic process that starts off with the hearing of ears, goes on to believing with the heart and released through the movement of the lips; all though the word agent. God had his world by speaking his word; you too can have your world by speaking your words which are in line with God’s word. Faith is based on God’s word which is infallible
Faith is an assurance that culminates from trust in the integrity of another. The integrity of God cannot be over emphasized. He had sworn by himself and eternal insurance is placed on his words (settled forever). His words provide a solid front on which we stand firmly, knowing fully well that the speaker is seated at the universe highest seat of authority (Right Hand of God). We operate in faith unconsciously, seeing the faithfulness is the language of the covenant and knowing that our covenant partner (God) is faithful enough to carry out His promises. In the midst of adverse circumstances and helpless situations, we stand by faith undistributed knowing the victory is the endpoint of a faith path.
Faith is Inborn
Faith is natural phenomenon to every child of God. As products of God, they resemble the faith God and they are designed to believe naturally without stress. New creations have been programmed to walk by faith and its strange thing for them to complain of lack of faith. They have got the ‘spirit of faith’ (2 Cor. 4:13) and they operate in God’s kind of faith. Their problem is not lack of faith but failure to develop faith (Matt. 17:20) A substantial measure of faith has been dealt to every believing one (Rom. 12:3). Everyone born of God has the capacity to believe faith is inborn. You are called a believer, creation is a product of faith (Eph. 2:8) and his lifestyle is that of faith (2 Cor. 5:7). He is the just (righteousness of God) and God expects him to love by faith (Heb. 2:4; Gal. 3:11; Heb. 10:38; Rom. 1:17).
Faith is twofold first in the heart(spirit) and secondly in the mouth, load your heart with words of faith and continually speak those words of faith, they will always put you over. Faith comes by hearing the word (Rom. 10:17) and it grows by practicing (confessing) the word. ‘Whosoever shall say…Shall have whatever he says’ (Mark 11:23)
